Stream: Purple Sneakers – “We Mix You Dance [Promo Mix]“
As any Sydney kid would attest, the weekly Purple Sneakers club night is setting to many of the city’s most glorious/inglorious nights out. Part of that is the cool, yet unpretentious crowd. Part of it is the loose, house-party atmosphere. But most of it comes down to the never-fail music selection of the legendary Purple Sneakers DJs – PhDJ, M.I.T, and BenLucid – and their capacity to mash indie hits with whatever hot shit the blogosphere is servin’ up that week.
This explains why everyone’s pretty much doing backflips since the Purple Sneakers DJs announced their first-ever 2CD mix compilation, ‘We Mix You Dance’, to hit shelves 11th June.
From what’s been announced of the line-up so far, the comp’s destined to be the ultimate party mix: Vampire Weekend, The XX, Hot Chip, Phoenix, La Roux, Animal Collective, etc(!). But in true Purple Sneakers style, there’s also plenty of up-and-coming breakthrough artists to sink your teeth into: Strange Boys, Neon Indian, Kid Sam, Darwin Deez, Memory Tapes, and a whole heap more.
For a taste, you can stream this 10 minute (and seven second) teaser mix:
