The seasons, summer specifically, have always been special muses in my life; my first few releases were sun-soaked odes to all things Summer, and my most recent, a chilly dive into Winter.
This mix was compiled over a few months, picking and choosing what I would consider to be the most important songs of my summer. Here in British Columbia, the summer is a time to spend outdoors, amongst the seemingly infinite amount of lakes, forests and parks that this land has to offer. These are the songs that soundtracked the days spent lounging on the grass at Cultus Lake, picnic’ing at Harrison Lake and cooling off in the surprisingly clear waters of Albert Dyck Park.
I have to give some special thanks for the creation of this mix:
Mark Barrott created what I believe to be one of the best “summer records” in an especially long time. My rediscovered love of all things balearic comes from all the time spent with his record “Sketches From An Island”.
Beamer W. is a contributor at ISO50, a new age music connoisseur, and just an all-around great guy. He sparked this interest in me to search out some of these deeper cuts that you hear in this mix, and also introduced me to some artists that have become a huge inspiration.
I hope this inspires some peace and relaxation in your life. Now go outside and find a lake to jump in.
