Even if you fancy yourself a bit of an Ebenezer Scrooge, you'd be hard to have missed our twelve-part Mixmas series, in which some of the industry's best and brightest were kind and genial enough to grace us with their esteemed selector status, each supplying their own mix to fall in line with yes, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" melody first penned by a man by the name of Frederic Austin. From Benassi to UZ—here's what we found under our tree this year:
Day 2: Nicky Romero - "Two Turtle Dutch"
"For day 2 of 12 Days of Mixmas, we just let the Dutch master do what he does best: Bring the energy. So when you're tired of your uncle's tipsy ramblings or just need an escape, put this on, crank it up, and let Nicky be your guide."
Day 4: J.Phlip - "Calling Dirtybirds"
"Rumor has it that J.Phlip locked herself in a room for 24 hours to populate this mix with nothing but vinyl rips. That level of attention to detail is readily evident as the house mix weaves through booty bass thematics laden with hip-hop samples and typically Dirtybirdy freakouts. Yeah, you might not have gotten that pony you always wanted this Christmas, but J.Phlip's contribution to 12 Days of Mixmas will have you tipsy and dutty wining with Grandma before you can say "keep the receipt."
….and a merry Mixmas to all, and to all a good night.
