Klas - A Beach Bum Mix


Hi folks, we're having another guest mix at the bin and it's one for the summer! My man Klas from Sweden had sent this over 2 weeks ago and it has been enjoyed a lot over here so I asked him if it would be okay to share it on the bin. It is!
Here's what Klas says about it: The mix is inspired partly by the beach scenes in the movie Fletch, partly by heavy beach bums like José Padilla, DJ Harvey and Coyote, obviously some tracks in the mix are more or less "borrowed" from mixes of theirs. The background is that I started to think about guys who like ski bums looking for the best uncharted slope would go from island to island, looking for the perfect unknown beach. This mix takes place on such a place with such a crowd of beach bums, hanging out, fishing and bathing in the sun.

Sounds like fun, huh? It is! Here's the tracklist:

1. Rod McKuen - Beach Town
2. Larry Carlton - Wavin And Smilin
3. Graham Nash - Out On The Island
4. Ned Doheny - Labor Of Love (With Paul Horn playing flute and Haida singing in the background)
5. Claude Larson - Wave Sequences
6. Dave Mason - Sweet Music
7. Gilberto Gil - Maracatu Atomico
8. Richard Schneider Jr - Hello Beach Girls
9. W. Gogolewski - Piano Underlay
10. Buju Banton - Inter Lingua (with blackbird singing in background)
11. Fleetwood Mac - Sara
12. Laurie Anderson - My Eyes
13. Tanita Tikaram - Hot Stones
14. Brenda Ray & Prince Far I - Sweet Sweet Wine
15. The Beach Boys - All I Wanna Do
16. Tangerine Dream - Beach Theme
17. Rod McKuen - Beach Town (with PJ Harvey's seagulls singing in the background)
18. The Lovin' Spoonful - Darling Be Home Soon  

and here's the mix

Thanks Klas!
