Summer Jams

After 6 months of unrelenting remix work, Vancouver's iamxl has finally dropped his newest full length mix. After his 2008 'Back to Berlin' mix tape, 'D.A.N.C.E. Happens', is the 8th compilation iamxl has ever put out in the last 5 years. Weaving its way through genres with brushes of mainstream recognition, to cutting edge electronic anthems, right through to the outer reaches of your mind; iamxl has created 70 minutes of pure party magic. 27 tracks mixed and layered in a puzzling sequence that leaves you wondering where one track ended and another began. Just in time for summer and in true iamxl fashion, you will find jackin' beats mixed with reggae, ska, funk, jazz, hip-hop, and pop. The beats will drive your dancefloor crazy with exclusive original edits, remixes, and selections you won't find anywhere else. Leading into his West Coast Summer Tour, iamxl brings it hard and doesn't relent until the last track has come to an end. An iamxl set and live performance encompasses genres and formats you never could have imagined and this compilation is just a teaser, a mere glimpse into the crazy musical world that this man unleashes onto his crowd with every booking. Download the compilation today and have it ready to go because you never know, even when you least suspect it... D.A.N.C.E. Happens
