Chickens Don't Clap! - Summer Mix 2011

Artwork by Mindy Solis.

In a place like California, all seems right with the world in the summertime. Expansive blue skies are the backdrop for sun-soaked beach days, lazing stoned poolside, beer-laden backyard barbecues, bike rides, frisbee sessions, and road trips— all of which are that much more enjoyable with a good soundtrack.

Here are some collected tunes inspired by my DJ sets from June and July. As always, this was mixed and recorded live via my DJ software. You can stream or download below and peep the tracklist after the jump… enjoy!

The cover art for this mix comes from San Diego writer/artist Mindy Solis. Check out her blog at the link above.
