Cosmo Baker from the Rub made a great new mixtape. Download it here:
â€œThis mix is the sequel to my early summer mix â€œâ€œ. In that mix I tried to capture, using songs that I love and that have a very special meaning to me, a certain feeling that I equate with the beginning of summer. Thereâ€™s a certain energy and electricity that is about during the first few weeks of the season, when everything seems alive and in itâ€™s right place. For this mix I wanted to try and capture the stillness of summer, when the air is hot and the days are long, and time seems to be moving at a slower pace than normal. This is a companion piece to â€œFeeling Goodâ€? but it takes a different direction and deals with another type of – but no less intense – energy. Enjoy!â€?
