The Heatwave - Its Official

Apparently its official. We are in the midst of a heatwave. Don't panic though, we still have a while before the crops whither and the earth cracks. Until then I suggest that you get down you local park/garden with a few cold beers and some good tunes and soak up the sun. God knows its rare enough in the UK.

To that end, here's some DJ mixes that are perfect for lazing on a sunny afternoon. First up I have to send some thanks to my man thinkyman (via the always brilliant Generation Bass) who pointed me in the direction of this excellent minimix from Andy Kisaragi of LBFM (don't google LBFM at work, I did and got a surprise) 15 tracks of pure global bass fire in 15 minutes, this mix covers a lot of ground from hip hop to bhangra to balkan beat. Grab it here:

Next up Nick Catchdub's contribution to the excellent (and now defunct I think) Lemon Red mix series. I don't have a track listing but the bmore refix of Sir Duke slays me every time. Grab it here:

Finally, I can't write a post about the Heatwave without mentioning London's favourite bashment peddlars, The Heatwave. All of their mixes are worth listening to but I've been caning their St George's day Rinse session loads recently. You can grab it below:
