We've had plenty of boomin' murkiness in our output recently but the sun's blazin' hard so we figured it was time to turn the heat up a touch and let the tunes reflect the light for a while.
Definitely in keeping with this vibe is a new track from A-ux entitled Less Hate, More Love. Created as a warming antidote to the world's current economic and social climate, it's 80's Electro optimism certainly does make your 'soul-glo' a little.

Currently back in South Korea getting ready for obligatory military service, we hope A-ux manages to push further his mission to bring people together through music and avoids too much craziness over those 2 years.
The production on this new track from Mos Def's album The Ecstatic is part jazz loungin', part 70s cop show but all sunshine as he sings 'bright light from a distant star'. And just like our closest gaseous guardian, he 'most definitely' spits fire on this one.

If you still can't shake the darkness then our advice is to dance your clart off and Sweat It Out with a little help from the audio assaulting Aussie label who bring you 30 tracks of 'Baile, Bassline, House and Hoover stabs' from the likes of: Armand Van Helden; South Rakkas Crew; and Oliver $ as well as members of the Sweat shop such as KillaQueenz, Edu K, Oh Snap!!, Yolanda Be Cool and Act Yo Age who also mixed the CD. CD 2 is a bunch of label remixes which are unmixed for all the DJs out there.
As enticement to the main event, here's a sampler Mini Mix from Act Yo Age. the release of this
