Well the summer's drawing in for yet another year, time to batten down the hatches for winter. But before all of that let's make the most of what's left, especially if you're planning on making Bestival this year. Let's hope it's sunny at least.
It's also been a while since I've shared a personal mix of my favorite records of late aside from the Too Hip To Be Square mixes/ events. So, here's a little sunset mix to top off the summer featuring some disco, house and techno.

This Friday, East London's Victoria Park welcomes L.E.D, a new electronic festival to its grounds for the August Bank Holiday weekend. Now it's a brave move considering the amount of electronic festivals going on this weekend (South West Four, Get Loaded In The Park, Creamfields, Notting Hill Carnival) but it certainly has a lineup to rival it's competitors. It's debut features the likes of Leftfield, David Guetta, Goldfrapp, Aphex Twin, Calvin Harris, Friendly Fires, Annie Mac, Soulwax and Bloody Beetroots to name a few. So if the good old British weather holds out we should be in for a pretty good time.
Now the kind people at L.E.D Festival have given me two pairs of tickets for both days at the festival to give away. So for your chance of winning a pair for both Friday and Saturday just answer the following question:
Who are the Flying Dewaele Brothers better known as?
Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org and a winner will randomly selected tonight at 10pm (Thursday).

Jackmode is a DJ agency based in Berlin, home to many a noteable name such as Zombie Disco Squad, Alexander Robotnik, Solo, Oliver $, Act Yo Age and upcoming stars like Monkey Safari and Idiotproof making up this "eclectic but considered roster".
They dropped a few promo's through my mailbox the other day from J Philip, Pol On, Worthy & Yankee Zulu and as it states on the Agency Myspace page; "musically, the common denominator is house music, but subtly peppered with african rhythms, baile funk elements and gypsy sounds". Personally I'm loving the Pol On remix of Brass Construction's 'Happy People'. It's a tight little chugger of tech house breathing out little touches of soul through the classic disco sample. Download while you can.
