Mad heat on the ones and twos
Summer marches on, the weather traverses its usual peaks and troughs, and the parties keep coming. Whether it’s taps aff saluting the sun or hunched in a basement ignoring electrical storms, we keep dancing.
This week we bring you five more mixes to keep those outside concerns where they belong.
Laurel HaloDISCWOMAN 27
A skittish and heavily melodic affair with shades of electro, piano house, batida and grime. Out just weeks after her album Dust dropped, it shows Halo clearly enjoying herself.
AtheneSIREN MIX 001
The first mix on SIREN’s new series is from one third of the crew behind the label brokntoys. Athene here moves in unsettling breakbeats through wonky techno cuts to moody electro, encapsulating the vibe of the label’s releases nicely.

Hessle/FTD weirdo Bandshell plays Outkast, DJ Stingray, King Tubby on Lyonnaise internet radio.
Elena ColombiNTS 17 July
The wiggiest of Monday mixes from one of the most in-demand in London right now. Interspersed with vocal snippets of people fleeing in terror.
