Summer Mix Series Volume One: Sunshinin'

As a present to you, our loyal readers, we've asked some of our favorite deejays around town to put together a summer mix for y'all. First up in the series is our good friend Joel from Rocktits! Boasting both an impressive vinyl collection and an impressive chest hair collection, Joel is pretty much our go-to guy for booty shakin' tunes. Besides being one of the nicest guys we know, he can also throw down a mighty mix that seamlessly transitions from '60s psychedelic rock to, like, an instrumental version of "Hey Ya." Seriously, it's all in there. You can see (and hear) Joel and the Rocktits! gang every Wednesday at the P.O.P.E. in South Philly, occasionally at Kung Fu Necktie, and at the Making Time parties.

Check it out: Stream it below and click on the picture to download. Listen to it, share it, LOVE IT!

We need other summer themes for dating.. like 'summertime first dates!' or 'summertime run into your ex!' or 'summertime you're hot but i can't believe you took me on a date without airconditioning in your car!'
