”BMX, sunny day, shining up my spokes.” – Raashan Ahmad
It has already been 6 months since Hessel dropped his Winter Mix. With the sun blazing and summer in full force, it’s time for 2016’s Summer Mix!
With his mixer at hand, Hessel went digging for the very best beats and hip-hop tracks to make the perfect blend of music to accompany you on your summer adventures. The result: a well over 60 minutes long mix, featuring fine artists such as: Deeb, Soulchef, Nieve, Substantial, Awon & Phoniks, just to name a few; this years Summer Mix serves only the very best.
For this year’s Summer Mix, Hessel reached out to German producer Le Produde, to provide an exclusive track to the mix, which resulted in a remix of C.L Smooth’s ‘Appreciate’, which can be heard in the mix at around 47 minutes.
Staying true to his signature of incorporating philosophical wisdom in his mixes, in the intro, as well as the outro, Hessel takes a deep dive into the concept of goalsetting and the Icarus deception, and how we all might be flying too low.
A mix can only be as good as the tracks featured, so Hessel would like to thank all of the artists that contributed to this mix, also, be sure to show them your support by purchasing their music!
