Moshigogo: Poolside Mix 4

This is exactly what I wanted this morning. A new Moshigogo Poolside mix! Serious chilled, gorgeous summer vibes heading into some more boppy tracks including that very addictive Magician 'Sunlight' tune. Was playing a load of Diana Ross to celebrate Dublin Pride yesterday so this opens on a nice number!*

"Poolside 4 - Gin Soaked and Sun Burnt! Slightly more uptempo, getting you from the pool to the club. Featuring productions from the likes of Aeroplane, the Magician, Gorgon City, Disclosure and Finnebassen, with vocal talents from MNEK, Marvin Gaye, Whitney, Toni, Pharrell, Jay Z and Miss Diana Ross amongst others."

He is  now on  Instagram (@moshigogo) and wants you to  tag him in your poolside pics to make him jealous!

Unless you are new around here (and welcome, if you are!) you know I've posted a bunch of Moshigogo mixes, check 'em out here and follow soundcloud.com/moshigogo for even more! I think I missed a Poolside mix by accident, will have to get on it!

*There is a version of Wicked Games on this mix but it's not the Chris Isaak one so that's all good. I was at a party when I was a teenager with that song on repeat but everyone was too stoned to move or change it so we listened to it and it alone for about 4 hours. Not cool. Not cool at all. Let this be a lesson to you about the dangers of drugs.

Greg Wilson: The Sound Of Glitterbox

This is the second installment in a new series 'The Sound Of Glitterbox" by Defected. I've been having trouble post-festivals finding tunes that suit my mood but let's face it, you can't go wrong with Greg Wilson, and this is deadly.  Recorded live at Edit @ Baku Lounge in May. Serious mixed vibes, everything from chilled out grooves to rock and disco and pop. Even has some Stone Roses and and amazing edit of Amerie's 'It's This One Thing' AND one of my favourite tunes ever, 'Peg' - so that's me happy out!

I've posted a couple of other Greg Wilson mixes check 'em out here.
