Summer Mix 2014

It's once again time for the annual summer mix on Eclectic Grooves. This time around, the tracks were compiled from various sources:  a summer funk mix on mixcloud, a few recommendations from a DJ friend of mine and several selections that barely missed the cut on last year's summer mix.   Overall, this mix is way more funkdafied than previous ones, with small servings of rock, African high-life, reggae and hip-hop to balance out the proceedings.

As usual, my hope was to post this mix much earlier in the summer, but at least you will have the entire month of August to enjoy these savory summer jams. If there is anyone who still checks out Eclectic Grooves, I would love to hear what you guys think of this year's mix.

hi Kevin, thanks for your kind words.
Well, I am not posting as much as I should/would....but after a while lotta of other things get in the way...
General living for example [:-)
Also the blog community has changed a lot since i started in 2007...
Some mixes have well over 550 downloads and zilch comments. (same old same old, I know).
But still some of the old e-friends still stay in contact over email, private blogs and other places.
I will keep occasionally post new stuff, hope you feel the need to do so every now and than too [:-)
peace,
E-mile
