WARMER MIXTAPES #1137 | by Alexis Bruaert and Médéric Martin of BeatauCue

SIDE A | by Médéric Martin

1. Disclosure | What's In Your Head (Mak & Pasteman Remix)
We usually play this one in the beginning 'cause the vibe of the break get the crowd into an enjoyable mood and the chopped up vocal on the drop is wicked.

2. Samo Sound Boy | 5 Dollar Paradise
This track has a really functional groove, really easy for the crowd to follow. It's not too loopy, but still have a Techno feel and there is a great Ghetto sample in it. We usually play it before going Techno.

3. Switch & Erol Alkan | A Sidney Jook
Switch is one my favorite producers and Erol Alkan - one of my favorite DJs, so when I heard about this collaboration I was pretty excited. It's a heavy Techno track with a lot of glitches and craziness in it, I'm not sure if people are always gettin' it when we play it in the club, but it's still fun to drop it.

4. GTA | Booty Bounce (feat. DJ Funk)
This one is a high energy track for the club. The vocal sample is awesome, the broken rhythm pattern on the drop is mental. There is not that much to say about this track, it's just about having your body moving.

5. Rebecca & Fiona | Dance (The Loops Of Fury Remix)
It's one of our peaktime tune for the club, we always get everybody's hands in the air with it. I love the original too, but it's only for my iPod 'cause it's too calm.

6. Chief Keef | Cuz My Gear (feat. RiFF RAFF)
I didn't know which one to choose from RiFF RAFF, so I choose the one with Chief Keef. I love RiFF RAFF's craziness and funny flow. I don't know that much about Rap, but his Music feels different. About Chief Keef, he is the rapper that get me the most excited at the moment.

7. Rihanna | Numb (feat. Eminem)
This is my favorite Rihanna track from her Unapologetic album. I love how the track mixes the serious mysterious vibe of the verse with the 4-chords melancholic party vibe of the refrain. On the other side I don't really get the Eminem verse, but, whatever, the track is awesome.

8. Seiho | I Feel RAVE
A friend find it on Soundcloud and sent me the link. Seiho is a Japanese producer from Osaka. I love Japan, but I don't have that much Japanese Music in my iTunes besides OSTs. I'd like to find more producers like him. The track is a kind of melancholic Trap beat with great chopped up vocal. I love it. Friendzone are doing this kind of stuff too.

9. Tuff Wheelz | So Strong (The Phantom Remix)
Like the previous track, this is a kind of Trap beat with a great vibe. I especially like the arp chords being Trancy on the break and becoming Lo-Fi on the drop.

10. Marina And The Diamonds | How To Be A Heartbreaker (Kitty Pryde Remix)
My favorite Kitty Pryde track. It takes a lot of codes from Rap Music and feels very girly and young almost innocent. I really feel this vibe, 100x more than Rick Ross.

SIDE B | by Alexis Bruaert

1. Jacques Lu Cont | In The Night
We actually play this track in the beginning, right after Techno/Tech House. It always makes a good atmosphere. We also love his remix for John Dahlback.

2. Rush Chimes | Back 2 You
It's more a melody club track, I love the break and the vocal is simple but effective. Good to play this one with our own stuff. The Logisitics Remix is great too, only if people want more.

3. Hey Today! | Guru Guro
A great groovy monotone Techno track released on Kitsuné, perfect to keep the intensity in the middle of the set. It always works.

4. Two Door Cinema Club | Sun (Gildas Kitsuné Club Night Remix)
Great remix for Two Door Cinema Club from our boss Gildas, the arrangement is perfect and it always gets everybody hands in the air at the last drop. Great job from the label head honcho.

5. Alan Braxe | Addicted
A very hold tune and certainly the best from Alan Braxe. Breakbeat drums with Trance arpeggio, perfect to end our set.

6. Sweater Beats | MLLN DLLR
It's extract from my Vibe iPod playlist with tracks from 128bpm to 170bpm. This one is in the beginning, I really love the vibe, the chords and vocal the cut/pitch. I listen to this kind of Music in the plane/train/bus...

7. Brent Still Life | I Could Blame You
It's more dark than the first one. The cut vocal is completely awesome, the chord synth is a little cheap, but I think it's appreciable and appreciated by purist people.

8. Slugabed | Moutains Come Out Of The Sky (ARP 101 Remix)
A Trap melody beat with a strange vibe but still great. ARP 101 is always a little strange.

9. Netsky | 500 Days Of Summer
Certainly my favorite Drum 'N' Bass producer, 500 Days Of Summer is my best loved track from his new album. This is smoother than his usual stuff, great harmony + speedy hit hat = great combo!

10. Purity Ring | Obedear
Sounds like Kito & Reija Lee, I don't know what to say but all the EP is great. (Also the name is great too)...

WARMER MIXTAPES #1136 | by Josephine Vander Gucht [LAYLA]

1. Feist | The Bad In Each Other
I adore Feist. She is a powerhouse of talent. Her most recent album Metals is simply spectacular; the production and arrangement is so original in a classic way, lots of vocals, strings... It feels really live and real. This was a big influence on me when I wrote and recorded my very first LAYLA EP.

2. Death Cab For Cutie | Brothers On A Hotel Bed
This song has stuck with me for 10 years and still remains one of my favourites. It's about growing old and changing as a human, something that we all go through. My favourite lyric is On the back of a motor bike with your arms outstretched trying to take flight, leaving everything behind. But even at our swiftest speed we couldn't break from the concrete. That inability to change, to fly, to be free, to do what our heart wants - that is something we must all go through at one point in our lives... I can only imagine how harrowing and paralysing that must be.

3. The Cinematic Orchestra | To Build A Home (with Patrick Watson)
I fell in love to this song. I was lying on the floor of the studio with my producer after we'd finished recording my EP. It was about 3am, and we were so tired, but euphoric. And we just lay in silence listening to this song. That's a moment I will never forget.

4. Max Richter | Spring 1 (Vivaldi - The Four Seasons - Recomposed, Performed with Daniel Hope/Konzerthaus Kammerorchester Berlin/André De Ridder)
When I was mastering my EP with Mandy Parnell I saw a record lying on the side that said Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons. My heart stopped. I love Max Richter. I adore Vivaldi. I learnt how to play the violin just because of Vivaldi. How had this escaped me! Richter recomposed Vivaldi's Four Seasons and it's just EPIC and achingly beautiful.

5. The Books | Enjoy Your Worries, You May Never Have Them Again
These guys are cool as anything. I saw them live a while back, and they explained how they had amassed all these old tapes from charity shops across the USA and taken samples from them to make Music. Recycling people's trash and forgotten memories into new ones. It's genius. This song has my favourite 10 seconds of Music in ever. The climactic bit after the woman talking about having a heart condition. It kills me.

6. Joni Mitchell | A Case Of You
Wow, what a song. What songwriting. What a voice! This is magic in its purest form. I grew up listening to Joni, and I am grateful to my Dad every day for encouraging me to listen to Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Carole King and Simon And Garfunkel, instead of Hear Say. He helped me understand from a young age what a well written song feels like.

7. Polly Paulusma | Over The Hill
My favourite song in the world from my favourite record in the world. This is what got me into songwriting, into believing, into reading, into studying English Literature. Without this record I would be nothing.

8. James Blake | Retrograde
I went to Amsterdam last year to write some songs and one night sat listening to this album in a hazy state... The perfect accompaniment to accessing another part of yourself. James Blake's music is unlike anything else.

9. Bon Iver | Perth 
I don't know how Justin Vernon does it. His music is just - there are no words. For me, it epitomises what Music is, how it should make you feel, how it should hurt you, and make you nostalgic, and empower you, and make you feel invincible, all in the same breath.

10. Benjamin Gibbard | When The Sun Goes Down (Arthur Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
I'm not sure I even want to get married, but if I did, this is the song I'd want at my wedding. Under a moon that hangs from silver strings, we know not what this darkness brings. The stars all gleam with possibilities...

WARMER MIXTAPES #1135 | by Samuel Austin Wilkinson and Elvis Benjamin Craig of Racial Purity Beatbox, Moonjean and Jensen Sportag

SIDE A | by Elvis Benjamin Craig

1. Chick Corea | The Woods 
One of the first Experimental Jazz records I can remember hearing. Vivid synths, spring reverb and beautifully fleeting themes all weave into each other.

2. Benedek | Laser Forest 
It has such an elastic thrown-around quality that is Funky as hell. Killer progressions and Moog lines.

3. Janet Jackson | Come Back To Me 
Worth it just for the intro.

4. Hugo Pratt | Night Loop 
Killer new jammy from our good buddy Sam Obey. 80's inspired synth soundscape fusion bumped through tape and just wooly enough to satisfy.

5. Oneohtrix Point Never | Cryo
Wonderfully syrupy track with an unpinnable agenda. Fantastic textures and mood by our boy.

6. Blood Orange | You're Not Good Enough
This is one of those tracks that feels like it slipped through the gate of my childhood. Classic Pop vocal anthem.

7. Yellowjackets | Shades
The Yellowjackets doing a track the Donald Fagen wrote for them. I have to love this. It's in my contract.

8. Mark Fell | Multistability 7-B
It's so much fun when you hear someone going into totally alien Programming territory. I have no idea what he's doing. Dude is a stud.

9. Theophilus London | Figure It Out (feat. Blood Orange, The Force MDs)
Maximum vox and sex appeal on display here. The chord changes are just 100% perfect.

10. Alan Braxe | One More Chance (with The Spimes)
Extremely Cinematic and Romantic piece of work by Alan. I can spot your chord progressions from 14 kilometers away, Alan.

SIDE B | by Samuel Austin Wilkinson

1. Samo Sound Boy | Open
The sveldt boss of Body High opens in full glorification of labor. Ever-rising, ever working, ever progressing, slyly uplifting. House beater with all gears exposed.

2. The Tuss | Synthacon 9
The secret Electrofunk of Richard D. Regenerating, recasting, rearranging, self-unaware. Technical College after-School lessons from the emotionally disheveled professor.

3. Drew Gragg | Metroplex Theme 
Dry-shampood. Dry-light. Gazing outside my window on a weekday. Studio Ghibli. Tape deck daydreams. Very interesting Metaphysical Leisure Music on Nicolas Jaar's Other People label.

4. TÂCHES | Malindi
Leaping, lurching, dip-dyed and soaking wet. A Dub-deep jewel of a prayer for House Music.

5. Kangding Ray | Dimen Andesso
Throbbing and cycling with purposeful excursion. Cell multiplication of elegant radial complication and a sensation of infinite duration. The Techno of a modern master.

6. LB | Thatness And Thereness (Mental Organic) (Ryuichi Sakamoto's 'Thatness And Thereness' Cover)
Mental Organic Atom™/Lassigue Bendthaus' rework of Ryuichi's Existential Escapist Poetry. Hi-Tech Kyma-Graphing. Endless precision. 808s tunneling slowly through the center. Ego surrender. Comfort in sorrow.

7. Illum Sphere | Ghosts Of Then & Now
Sweetly grave plastic parlor shuffle. Urns polished for some unknown relative. A loving Dub of doubtful duty. A new favorite on the old reliable Ninja Tune label.

8. Philippe Saisse | Glamorous Glennis
A Windham Hill highlights reel in MIDI. Arppeggio. Staccato. Toccata for toy drums. The fretless bass bemoans the beauty of the soldier in the rain.

9. Fennesz | Perfume For Winter
Cold comfort from the Austrian master of Psychedelic Ambience. A title that leads with a notion. A missing photograph wears snow. Frowning branches tell you otherwise. An act of Kindness amongst creatures less gentle in fairer weather.

10. The Sundays | Here’s Where The Story Ends
I recommend that everyone join at least one Sundays cover band.

+11. Mark Fell | Sections 8-14
A painstaking set of next-language makesnd cycling hyperlinks.

+12. Masayoshi Takanaka | Rising Arch
The tail end of peaceful levitation dream. Going straight, feeling flat. Pale stems curling outwards and upwards dripping glare from the Sun.

WARMER MIXTAPES #1134 | by Thomas Ouf [Kulkid]

1. Mono | Moonlight
This is THE tune for me. It's the track I'll take with me on a desert island, the track I'll die with, the track my future wife will have to love, etc.... It's the kind of Music I was doing before I got into Electronic Music. It brings so many feelings when you listen to it, heat & cold, bliss & happiness, etc.... You could rock a baby when the Music starts, and almost be pogoing at the end. You can picture whatever you want while listening to it. It's gentle and violent at the same time. To sum up, it's exactly what Music means to me: it's a background, a soundtrack that allows you to imagine whatever you want to see.

2. Pink Floyd | Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V)
My dad is a huge fan of Progressive Rock, and of course of the Floyd. This tune is simply the most perfect evolving Progressive suite I've been listening to. And it's even more moving because it's a tune in memory of Syd Barrett, the ex-leader of the band.

3. Burial | Archangel
Masterpiece of Electronic Music. Sleepy and dancy at the same time. I can't help thinking of deserted streets of London by night when listening to this tune.

4. Bon Iver | Beth/Rest
We just listen to this tune all the time with my friends, so it brings lots of good memories. Bon Iver really got a unique sound, it sounds warm and vintage, but that Electronic feel is so modern too. I'm always speechless when I listen to their albums.

5. Burial + Four Tet | Moth
Two geniuses at work. When that loop comes in the intro, you're like where the fuck are they going with that, and as the tracks goes on it all makes sense. I love this kind of feel, when you don't understand something at first sight because you only have the main element, and then the sum of all the small elements around justifies it.

6. Gorillaz | Tomorrow Comes Today
This is my travel song. Whenever I'm on a plane/boat/train I put this in my ears. At first sight, it really sounds like a sad and depressed tune. But the lyrics + the childhood memories this tunes brings back make it super positive to me.

7. Jamie xx | Far Nearer
This tune has influenced my work as Kulkid A LOT. I've always been into Exotic instruments - I almost always bring an instrument back from my travels. I remember that, when I first listened to this tune, I found it was GENIUS to blend Exotic/Organic instruments and Electronic Music together. Anyway, this track is my iPhone ringtone since a year now, and this means a lot.

8. Arctic Monkeys | Arabella
I got their last album on repeat in my car, and I put that track whenever I go to a party. It pumps me up every damn time. So if you go to Aix-Les-Bains and see a Volkswagen with this tune at maximum volume, there's a chance it could be me.

9. Daft Punk | Veridis Quo
The best tune from the masters, according to me. It's the kind of tune and sound that has inspired and influenced a whole generation of musicians. And it still works today, that tune is timeless.

10. Aphex Twin | Rhubarb
This tune is just pure peace. The whole album Selected Ambient Works Volume II is a masterpiece, but Rhubarb is really my favorite tune. I don't really know why, it's just so simple and so efficient. I could be listening to that in loop on a cloud forever. Or in a plane.

WARMER MIXTAPES #1133 | by Ivan Erofeev [Aleph] of Prodavcy-Konsultanty

1. Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff | 12 Romances, Op.21: How Fair This Spot / Здесь хорошо (Zdes′ Khorosho) (Performed by Inessa Galante with Vladimir Choclov, Ingmars Zemzars, Janis Bulvas)
Inessa Galante has a wonderful voice, I can choose any of her Romance interpretations, sang in any language, to please my ears. I've watched a couple of her Operas and can't describe how unbelievably good she mastered her voice. I heavily recommend you to check out Jewish Folk Songs & Rachmaninov Romantic Songs album from start to end.

2. Floating Points | Shangrila
I won't tell you that Shangrila is my favourite track made by Sam, but it was my first revelation. I walked through the hood in my hometown of Omsk, it was a very cold winter. Scrolling randomly trough tracks on my player I stopped at Shangrila and was shocked and excited. I met my friend, then put this track on on my friend's soundsystem and sat in center of the room. Since that day I explored each and every of his tracks and constantly relistening it. Without a doubt I can say that he influenced me a lot, but you can't tell it from listening to my Music.

3. Lerosa | I Care
Italian producer who writes very elegant House Music and oftenly releases mixes that consists from very rare vinyls which is impossible to find in Digital format. This track's strongly inspiring, it's slow and gracious development drowns me in soundplay, and then you unintentionally embrace same slow tempo with your thoughts and it makes your attention free and clear. When the track breaks into second half I always want to close my eyes and see how this Music looks from inside.

4. John Tejada | Somewhere
This is the first John's track I've heard and I instantly fell in Love with it. I've goofled him, bought his complete discography and listened to him for days and nights, playing Somewhere in clubs on a regular basis. Especially I love his tracks which has lyrics on them.

5. Ten Walls | Gotham
This is a masterpiece. It's hard for me to imagine how this melody was written, but it is geniously tailored. Especially it's last part, mystical run of notes around tonic. Things like this are priceless and therefore Ten Walls quickly found its ways into World's charts, into podcasts of Techno and House bosses. I may not rate previous tracks by this artist so high, but I think he's a very talented guy. Meow.

6. Deepchord | Glow
Before I heard Deepchord, I had no clue about Dub-Techno. But he, on his own, proved to be able to make me obsessed with this genre. I don't want even to talk about this Music, 'cause there is no words that can be more important than listening to it. I want to share a secret with you: currently I prepare a Dub-Techno album under disguise and it looks like I will work on it for another few years.

7. Fudge Fingas | Snow Day
Classy House with a ripe groove, I played this bit in different spaces, times and tempos. Speaking of dances, it's a firestarter.

8. Art Department | All Mine
Love-from-a-first-glance type of track. Amazing duo from Canada which has no need for presentation. Mega popular guys who made a style of their own and they keep it in both tracks and mixes. Pleasant listening, I advise you to visit their live shows!

9. N.A.D. | Distant Drums
My recent discovery, let me put aside the fact that it was written in '89. The swinging drum machine rhythm with interesting speech above makes you listen to the sound of distant hits hidden in the background. It's the first track from an album which tells you a big story. A story about the Future and much more.

10. Zbigniew Preisner | Dies Irae
I close my list with a Female Opera song, in the same key as I started it. It's a Polish composer who's widely known as an author of Movie Soundtracks. I've never seen these movies, but a couple of these compositions deeply printed in my consciousness.
