WKEND MIXTAPE V13: Poolside • Tensnake • Alex Metric


We have three new mixes this week from Poolside, Tensnake, and Alex Metric to get your weekend started right.


PoolsideStir It Up

Our first mix eases us into the weekend with Poolside’s distinct “daytime disco” sound. As summer begins this is your beachside soundtrack combing the Brazilian vibes of Gilberto Gil with their own laid back tracks and edits. I challenge anyone to listen and not want to escape to the sun for an impromptu daytime dance party.


TensnakeSolé x THUMP Fixtape Vol. 26

Next up is German DJ/producer Tensnake, an artist we’ve featured here before, offering up a mix for Solé and THUMP. This mix is a perfect follow up from Poolside, starting off slow with tracks from Kraftwerk, Fort Romeau, and Chicken Lips to build up to house and disco jams from Nancy Whang & Audiojack, Blende, and Aksel Friberg. This one is a slow burner and definitely worth checking out.


Alex MetricHard Summer Mixtape 2014

Wrapping up this week’s mixes is another artist we’ve featured before, British DJ/producer Alex Metric. This time he is back with a mix for the Hard Summer festival taking place August 2-3 in Los Angeles. He starts things out with “Galaxy”, his collaboration with Oliver and builds with tracks from Tensnake, Duck Sauce, Riton, and remixes from himself, TEED, Aeroplane, Prins, and Sould Clap.

Check out Alex djing tonight at Audio in Soma. Tickets are still available here.


  1. That poolside mix tho…

  2. I believe what you published made a ton of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier post
    title? I ain’t suggesting your content is not solid., but suppose you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean WKEND MIXTAPE V13: Poolside • Tensnake • Alex Metric – Showbams is a little vanilla.
    You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines
    to grab viewers to click. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about what
    you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
