The New LoFi

Ten Years

June 2021 Mixtape

It’s June! Summer is finally here in the Northern hemisphere and the 5 month lockdown in the UK has finished! To celebrate we’ve got new music from Basement Jaxx, Groove Armada, Nubya Garcia, Channel Tres, Flight Facilities, Mura Masa, Green-House, Caravan Palace, El Michels Affair and a band called Celestial Being — Citizens of the World Choir and the London Contemporary Voices. What a name!

There’s also a Pixies cover by Tkay Maidza (see the video below) and a Billy Idol remix by Poolside that reinterprets “Eyes without a face” into a super chilled-out poolside banger. So so good.

Full playlist below along with some videos from the mix — including the amazing video Vincent Desrousseaux directed for Folamour’s single “Just Want Hapiness” and the animated video for Caravan Palace’s new single “Moonshine.” The animation follows a disenfranchised man as he convinces himself that the earth is flat. It drives him to the end of his world… and beyond.

The New LoFi mixtape is also available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher and Acast. And if you want to randomly mix up every song that was ever featured on a Mixtape, check out the Infinite Mixtape on Spotify.
