Mixtape Monday: Tensnake, Cut Copy, and Ronika


It’s technically a holiday here in the United States of America… Hopefully that means you’re downing some afternoon beers and in a dancing mood, because I’ve got that for you in spades for mixtape Monday while you wait for the new Phoenix single to drop. Our main attraction tonight comes from a man on the verge of a breakout year, Germany’s Tensnake.


I’ve been a pretty hardcore fan of Tensnake’s since I heard the stellar “In the End (I Want You to Cry)” a few years back, and his ’90s pop revival tastes have proven prophetic since. His Facebook page is also a great source to discover new jams, and his new mix for BBC Radio One’s Essential Mix series takes that to a whole new level. It takes a little patience with a slow build, but this thing has jams for does, including a couple tracks from his impending debut album (!).

For those hoping for a more familiar name here, I’ve got Cut Copy’s Dan Whitford, who took over the decks for Boiler Room on his birthday last week. A nice mix of old, rare disco cuts and contemporary dancefloor jams, it’s as fun as everything you’ve come to expect from a boiler room mix. Fun fact: I recently found out that Cut Copy are hardcore Celtics fans, which makes me love them even more than I thought possible.

Finally, if you’re spending the day off with your special someone, Ronika has the right stuff for you. A combination of oddly romantic tracks, “Sweetheart, Don’t Be a Nightmare” is probably the only Valentine’s mix to have both George Benson and John Maus. Now go enjoy your day off!
