A-OK Mixtape: Big Wet Canadian Summer

Hello and welcome to our most ambitious mix yet! Just in time for May Long (and by that logic, summer) I am proud to present the A-OK Big Wet Canadian Summer Mixtape. Yes, mixtape, just like those of us born in the 80’s or earlier used to make for our crushes. This one even comes with two sides, as I’m sure you’ve put together by looking at the artwork.

Now, these songs aren’t the newest or latest, but every one of them has felt the delicious kiss of Canadian talent. There are only four non-Canadians on here but it’s A-OK because their remixes are! The imports are Korallreven (remixed by Memoryhouse), Martin Solveig (with Dragonette), Boys Noize and Sébastien Tellier who are both remixed by Montréal’s A-Trak (of recent Duck Sauce fame).

You can even catch Dragonette & Chromeo at this years’ Center of Gravity!

But what is probably the best part is that you won’t have to listen to me blather on, this mixtape is all music baby!

I’m going to be honest, Side A is for the summer mornings you add whipped cream to breakfast and call it brunch just to justify drinking a cocktail at 10am. These are songs for carefree days, a soundtrack for lounging on the beach, longboarding or perhaps even walking around naked in the comfort of your home.

Side B is another story. You’ve spent the day baking in the sun, you’re washed out and you’re running home to shower and get ready for the night. High energy are the keywords here, this mix will take you on a night out on the town. It won’t judge you, it knows it’s still hot out and doesn’t care if you have a farmers tan and you’re wearing shorts in a club.
