Forget Mixtape Sundays, this is mixtape Wednesday. Check out these monster mixes from a pair of our favorite twosomes: Coat of Arms & Fur Coat.
First up is a deeply sexual mix from Venezuelan duo and recent Crosstown Rebels signees, Fur Coat. The mix is replete with hard-edged, yet classy deep house bangers that are sure to get booties shaking at all hours of the day. It so vividly reminds me of the techno journey known as “Get Lost Miami” that I get goose bumps just listening to it. And if you haven’t heard Fur Coat’s underground anthem “You and I” yet, then your life needs some direction. Get it together.
Next is a mix from Coat of Arms, the British duo comprised of Chris James (Birmingham) and Eats Everything (Bristol), and is sure to be in my rotation for most of May. Equal parts bass and house, this mix is a touch more upbeat; perfect for the house head trying to understand what all this Bristol fuss is about. If this kind of thing suits your fancy, and it will, be sure to keep your eyes glued to your browser for our interview with Eats Everything (now a month in the making). It’s coming.
