Pete Tong host of the legendary BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix Series is bringing a little of Ibiza to Los Angeles on November 9th.

 

The event entitled “Ibiza Classics” will see Tong perform alongside avant-garde composer Jules Buckley and the 65 piece Heritage Orchestra reinterpreting classic dance tunes that have provided the soundtrack to the last two decades with the power of a full Philharmonic orchestra. If you’re looking for something fresh, new and exciting the check out then look no further.

 

Tong will be joined by opener Guy Gerber – who will perform his first live set in over four years – and special guests including Moby, making his Hollywood Bowl debut, Aluna George and vocalist Bipolar Sunshine, and special host for the night Zane Lowe

 

This could be a historic night for electronic music in California. There’s no perfect place to hold this event than in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl. The Bowl show follows Pete’s #1 record ‘Classic House’ earlier this year, and precedes the upcoming LP release of Ibiza Classics Dec 1.

 

 

Get your tickets here and we’ll see you out at the Bowl.

 

I know there’s been a lot of TEED posts up here lately, but what? Am I not supposed to post this? Nay. Orlando’s put together the mix of his life for Radio 1, and I intended on getting it to you in the best quality I could find. He even talks about how he’s been secretly waiting for this. It’s kinda cute. Who wouldn’t be pumped on this? The world’s premier mixing opportunity to show them what you got. Well, what he’s got is an especially deep house mix. Trimmed and brimmed with the kind of quality we’ve learned to expect from TEED. Check the tracklist after the jump…

HEY! Pretty interesting week behind and ahead of me. I deactivated my FaceBook and made a new one just to post stuff for C+A+D, and I feel like a new man! It’s crazy how much time is wasted on FaceBook…damn. Well yeah, I did it so I could focus my energy on passing one of my classes. It’s finals week. Which is good news for you, because I’ve compiled a list of mixes I like after the jump. Good luck to people being tested. Stay focused so we can all celebrate at Coachella! That lineup is looking more and more real as the days go by. Regardless, enjoy #87 and the mixes below. Love y’all.

For those of you who don’t know, Radio 1’s Essential Mix is a world-renowned weekly broadcast that features every style of electronic dance music. Two weeks ago Jamie xx (of The xx) threw down a superb set and solidified a surprisingly top mark in my books. Two hours of beautiful Essential that starts with Orbital’s ‘Belfast’ and continues with tracks from James Blake, Floating Points and Fantasitc Mr. Fox which took me on a gentle voyage through purple oceans and floating trees. It culminates together perfectly with Jamie’s Radiohead remix of ‘Bloom’.

Come YOLO47 I’ll be a free man. Or maybe not “free” as much as a man of fewer worries. But until then, on the final grind of the school year with my UC peoples. I included a list of some of my favorite sets and mixes with the usual list, because I find they’re best to study with. I tried to put them in order of ones I liked best at the top…but I really love em all. Use or misuse at your own discretion and good luck to everyone. For everyone else out of school, fuck yourselves. Except for not really…I’ll be with ya in a week.

ZZT – Zzafrika (Julio Bashmore Remix) (Chill/Electronic)
ZZT – Zzafrika (Afrojack Rework) (Electronic)
Bibio – Ambivalence Avenue (Indie)
Nas – N.Y. State Of Mind (Hip Hop)
Nas – It Ain’t Hard To Tell (Hip Hop)
Beirut – Postcards From Italy (Folk)
Flinch – World On Fire (Dubstep)
Fussy Boy – Gold (Mord Fustang Remix) (Electro House)
Zedd – Changes ft. Champions (Original Mix) (Electronic)
Desert Noises – Building These Walls (Indie)

Mixes/Sets

The Twelves Essential Mix
My favorite essential mix ever. I can’t and won’t give it a rest. 2 solid hours of grade A electronic and house. Uniquely mixed in a way that only the Twelves can do.

Soulwax Live at Soulwaxmas 2008
Soulwax doing what they do best: flawless live sets. Little biased on this one because I saw them right before they played this in Europe at HHM 08 and it’s pretty similar, as far as I remember.

Moonchild’s Birthday Mix for Les Petits Bruits
Moonchild is definitely making a name for himself in the French/Disco house scene. This won’t be the last time he comes up on C+A+D. This mix has a bunch of his songs and remixes. Feel good and bass filled tunes.

Nero Essential Mix
Nero split this up into 3 parts. Dubstep/Electro/everything. The tracklist speaks for itself. Another favorite essential mix.

Treasure Fingers Live From Temple SF
Treasure Fingers…this guy can do no wrong. My favorite set of his so far.

Wolfgang Gartner Live at Winter Music Conference 2010
Right before Wolfgang took his final leap into the group of premier DJs. From his live show recordings and essential mix, I’d say this is his most well put together.

Treasure Fingers 2011 Spring Mix *Recorded Live In England*
Free Treasure Fingers Spring mix! More great house.

Fake Blood Essential Mix
Classic. Voted 4th best essential mix of 2009 and by good reason. Fake Blood is a bo$$.

Swedish House Mafia Live from EDC 2010
I’ll never forget this set from EDC. Witnessing this live put house music on a completely different level for me. One of my go-to’s for being productive.

Calvin Harris Essential Mix
2 hours of the Calvin Harris we know and love. He mixes it up a lot in this one. Hard filthy electro and dancy disco.

Soulwax Live at Hard Summer 2010
Soulwax returns to LA after a 2 year hiatus, and this low quality rip is all I have to remember it.

Wolfgang Gartner Essential Mix
60+ tracks in this massive mix by one of the top production wizards in the world. I was expecting more to be honest, but still a keeper.

Party people! It’s that time of the year again. It comes around 2-4 times a year, depending on how old you are, how smart you are, and whether or not you care about your life: finals week. Although I should have my nose pressed in the books, I’m spending my time scouring the depths of the internet for music to study to. I got you guys set up for this week. Along with the weekly list, I thought I’d add some essential mixes to help you guys with your studies. Leave all doubt out of your minds and get those A’s! We can celebrate this friday at Control Avalon with Treasure Fingers and Burns on the decks, or next Friday at the same place for AC Slater! Check the Upcoming Events page for links to buy tickets and more info. Use these tunes to your advantage and good luck on whatever subject The Man sends your way.
