Mixed Beets Vol. 4

This edition of Mixed Beets features a track off of Flight Facilities debut album, a Mark Knight remix of Basement Jaxx, and a track from rising stars, Slow Magic. The first track is from Jon Hopkins who released one of the top ambient albums from 2013, Immunity. Definitely worth a listen to. The slow rising, uplifting track welcomes you to the mix and would serve as an excellent alarm clock. Parra Cuva was featured on Mixed Beets Vol. 2 and it was hard not to include the German producer again. London producer, Disciples, follows with a deep house track to speed things up a bit. The next two track are arguably my two favorite remixes of the year with the Huxley remix of Gorgon City's "Unmissable" and Mark Knight's remix of  Basement Jaxx's "Never Say Never" Slow Magic just released their first album September 9th and they are definitely worth listening to. The track on this mix is titled "Waited 4 U." In a similar boat is Flight Facilities, who have been around for awhile creating stellar remixes, and as well their own songs are releasing their first album next month and I couldn't be more excited. The track, "Two Bodies" features the vocals of fellow Aussie Emma Louise. Another Mixed Beets returner, a /jus/ ted, comes in with a remix of their own song, "A Brighter Light". There is some could minimalist, head spinning tracks on their Soundcloud. English electronic producer, Burial, has created some of the most genius tracks in the past couple of years. Infusing sounds from all of the genres associated with UK electronic music; Dubstep, Jungle, House, and even a little New-Wave.  "Archangel" is one of his most popular tracks, but it is definitely worth checking out some of his others. Feel free to share and comment! BONUS: Maybe a little out of the OTB reader scope but, wow is this new Chance the Rapper song fire. He had one of the best albums of 2013. (Make sure to listen to the intro with headphones)
