Good Morning Mix: rinsing Daft Punk’s iconic Coachella set ‘One More Time’Daft Punk Live Coachella 2006 No Credit Found

Coachella Weekend One is nearing its commencement date of April 12. Without fail, the incoming festivities always give a welcome excuse to visit one of the most historic performances at the festival, and possibly the world: Daft Punk at the main stage in 2006. It’s impossible to forget the stunning and groundbreaking pyramid setup used at the time to manifest their multicolored reality, nor the medley of their biggest hits and other gems that were so expertly mixed together in conjunction with the visuals. The performance would also be one of the elusive French duo’s last ever, as they notably haven’t taken to the road since they wrapped up their subsequent 2007 tour.

Without further ado, it’s time to revisit this iconic showing in video form—albeit, a bit on the grainy side.

Good Morning Mix: Stream ZHU’s climactic Lollapalooza Argentina setZhu

ZHU recently stopped by Lollapalooza Argentina to spin his signature brand of dark sonic magic. A tantalizing blend of catalog staples and newer releases alike, ZHU’s set opens with the producer’s breathy live rendition of ZHU classic, “In The Morning.” ZHU glides from one track to the next, with an atmospheric fluidity aided offset by the texture of the live instrumentation that guides the performance. Rugged guitar riffs provide contrast to the smooth tone of a saxophone, while rhythmic synth work lends a punchy sultriness to the showing.

ZHU’s set indulges the electronic envelope pusher’s shadowy mystique in its early inclusion cuts from his Ringo’s Desert saga, like “Desert Woman,” and “Save Me.” The idiosyncratic, crepuscular groove characteristic of ZHU’s sound grows increasingly potent as the set progresses, with Just A Gent‘s remix of ZHU’s own “Superfriends,” and a deep flip of “Working For It.” ZHU effortlessly interweaves sonic sleekness with more gritty trappings, the tail-end of the set a heavy hitting finale to the refined affair.

Sweater Beats checked off the bucket list in performing a recent DJ set at Emo Nite in Los Angeles. The Big Beat Records signee indicated in a Facebook post that he started his music career by playing for pop-punk/emo bands in high school. In the same post from February, fans get a Sum 41 beat flip, kicking off a wave of nostalgia for the LA-based producer.

Now, he’s perfectly blended humble beginnings with his current status as an electronic artist with this 33-minute mix from Emo Nite in LA. In addition to some familiar remixes, the mix is stacked with flipped classics and mashups by the producer himself, all representing the pop-punk/emo era of the ’90s and early ’00s. Listeners will hear edits of “Swing Swing Swing” by The All-American Rejects, Yellowcard’s “Ocean Avenue,” a Smashing Pumpkins joint “smashed” with a k?d drop, Fall Out Boy‘s “Sugar We’re Going Down,” and more.

In the mix’s description, the artist said he “got to live out a dream” by playing at Emo Nite. “I spent a lot of time finding/making acapellas for a lot of my fav emo & pop-punk songs so I could make custom remixes and edits,” he notes in the description. “The set was probably the most honest set I’ve ever played, a real mixture of my luv for emo & electronic music.”

Good Morning Mix: Major Lazer make Brazil-centric Carnaval mixMajor Lazer Carnaval Mi

Carnaval has just begun in Brazil, and to honor the cheerful chaos that ensues, Major Lazer has put together a brand new mix. The tracklist reveals something particularly special: most of its tracks happen to be by local artists from the area. Diplo and his colleague’s continual willingness to showcase underrated talent from outside the states is commendable.

Clocking in at just over an hour, the music selection is diverse and high-charged. Some bachata-inspired beats even make their way into the fold via MC Davi’s “O Verão Esta Chegando.” Bass runs abound, with wild trap drops and rhythmic heaters stimulating the senses. Major Lazer make it easy for listeners to place themselves mentally amid the madness that takes over the country during this time of year.

Good Morning Mix: Rock with A-Trak’s Holy Ship! Rap Party MixA Trak Holy Ship Hip Hop

Party master and scratch luminary, A-Trak shows his versatility and relevance in this lava “Holy Ship Rap Party 2019” mix of turn-of-the-millennium rap mixed with newer hip-hop and electronic goodies. For example, the Fools Gold head honcho hits a groove towards the beginning with Clipse’s “Grinding,” Jay-Z‘s “La La La,” a bootleg of Missy Elliot‘s “Work It,” an edit of J-Kwon’s “Tipsy,” Mary J. Blige‘s “Real One,” and Panjabi MC featuring Jay-Z’s “Beware.” That groove is continued and further expanded on; however, those tracks set the tone for a modern-day dose of nostalgia.

While listening through some of hip-hop’s finest products, A-Trak adds more modern elements with Kodak BlackChildish GambinoLil Uzi Vert, and more while mixing electronic elements from Daft Punk, GesaffelsteinJusticeYehme2, TroyBoi and others. This is a certified must-listen for fans of hip-hop and music in general, directly from one of the best improv party DJs to grace the stage.

The latest DA Good Morning Mix features house music duo Golf Clap, who recently stopped by the Mixmag Lab for a 90-minute set. Included in Dancing Astronaut‘s “Ones To Watch” list for 2019, the Detroit-based DJs created an eclectic atmosphere at this “post-work unwind” in Los Angeles.

Past guests include Redlight, The Martinez Brothers, and Andrew Rayel in the LA and NYC Mixmag offices.

The pair will head to Australia for back-to-back shows at Proud Mary’s and Oxford Underground Feb. 16, gearing up for a highly anticipated techno set at Movement Detroit in May.

Good Morning Mix: A morning dose of techno with Luke Slater ahead of his momentous return to LA

Many music industry pros have dubbed Luke Slater a “mastermind” of techno, and the UK producer has definitely proven this notion. An architect of the underground since his start in the 90s, Slater’s helped pave the way for darker sounds to rise to prominence—thanks to impeccable DJ sets performed across Europe and numerous releases under aliases that include his collaborative project LSD with Steve Bicknell and Function, and of course, the groundbreaking Planetary Assault Systems. Under his own name, Slater DJs with precision and class, opting for refined, yet forceful records that build onto each other like bricks in the Roman age. His proven dexterity behind the booth has made him a favorite at iconic venues like Berghain, Rex in Paris, and Georgia’s KHIDI.

It’s been quite some time since he was last in the states, however. By this we mean nearly two decades. So, when this legend announced his long-awaited return to both coasts, it was a cause for joy. That’s why we chose this brilliant set he just released from ADE, conveniently on Christmas 2018, to wake up to this morning. Sleeping after being grilled by the searing synthesizers and fiery kicks is simply impossible, especially when mixed with perfection.

LA is one of the most anticipated stops on the tour, where he’ll be playing an extended set in a discreet warehouse. Tickets are still available here.
