Everguide Jelly Belly Mix Up Vol. 1
We just bought 1.8kg of Jelly Belly Jelly Beans and the sugar high has inspired us like that scene at the end of Empire Records when Renee Zellweger sings
. There are 45 different flavours and just like the beans are a mixed bag, we decided to bring you guys a collection of finds that reflect all the different grooves we like to get down to here at Everguide. Bon appetite.
‘Happy 1st Birthday Everguide’ – Le Scratch
So you like your hip hop and R ‘n’ B? Have you been down to a Le Scratch night yet? If not, shame on you! You’re totally missing out. They’ll play the ones you want to hear, but the beauty of these guys is more than skin deep. It’s all-inclusive hip hop without the hard exterior, which is the real deal kind of Old Skool. They’re playing our party too and it’s going to be what the hipsters call ‘swag’. No doubt.
‘Down The Rabbit Hole Festival 2012 Official Mixtape’ – Indian Summer DJs
These dudes are also playing our party! It’s easy to throw the words ‘party starters’ around but we’ve seen these guys DJ many-a-time and we can verify the term. They’ve got something for everyone and you’re going to freaking dance without us having to shoot at your feet on Friday.
‘Mildlife’s Very Fantastic Mix Vol. 1’ – Mildlife
Yes, you guessed right! Mildlife are on the bill too. There is nothing we don’t love about this mix. Probably has one of the best intros ever.
‘North America Tour Mix 2012’ – Tornado Wallace
We aren’t Resident Advisor or Deep Rhythms but we know what we like, and we like Tornado Wallace. One of Australia’s most successful underground house exports, he’s about to embark on his first North American tour, so you’ll have to wait until he’s back to catch him at an Animals Dancing party.
Rare 1986 Fresh Prince & Jazzy Jeff Mixtape via Brotha Ron
A rare Jazzy Jeff mixtape featuring Will Smith circa 1986. When we heard about this we were kinda like this
but in a good way. Will Smith aka the Fresh Prince is hype man for Mr. Jeff and this mix is solid gold.
‘San Fran 2 Stockholm – Live Mix’ – World’s End Press
Our favourite funk cadets World’s End Press put this one together at the beginning of the year. Made in a summery-time, it makes us excited for sunshine again soon. Featuring Spiritualised, Tiger & Woods, Hot Chip, Grace Jones, Todd Terje, Mike Simonetti… One word: good.
‘Bye Bye Bye’ – Balam Acab
Balam Acab remixed ‘Bye Bye Bye’ by *NSYNC. Trust me, this is not what you’re expecting.
‘21 Questions’ – Telephoned
You might know their names when they aren’t being Telephoned, but Maggie Horn and Sammy Bananas are making something pretty special together. Teaming up to cover the 2000s R ‘n’ B tracks we love, including J.Lo’s ‘I’m Real’, Amerie’s ‘One Thing’ and Usher’s ‘U Don’t Have to Call’, their aim is to re-jig the tunes over Clams Casino beats and turn them into the ‘perfect hot summer night soundtrack’. By far our fave is this cover of Nate Dogg and 50 Cent’s ’21 Questions’.
‘Three Kings’ – Rick Ross feat. Jay-Z & Dr. Dre
We feel this one’s kind of obligatory, like how could we ignore so many egos on one song? We couldn’t. ‘Three Kings’ by Rick Ross featuring Jay-Z and Dr. Dre premiered a couple of weeks back but the video, by Dre’s film company, was released just yesterday. It works as a montage of videos from the three hip hop icons’ careers. Kinda cool, and the track ain’t bad either. LOL at the Ciroc ad at the end of the video. At least we aren’t subjecting you to that horrid ‘Pumped Up Kicks’ cover by A$AP Rocky
(Just kidding, we love you A$AP)
