Not sure how it happened, but I found myself really beginning to get anxious for monthly mixtape series. I love mixtapes, and I really like when a producer pumps them out on a monthly basis; gives me something to look forward to.
So along with following The Magician and listening to his Magic Tape series, I’ve also been a huge fan of Aeroplane’s monthly mixes. He was on a hiatus for quite some time, but in August he came back with a great mix. So how about a September mix? Well, we didn’t get that, but he just released an October 2012 Mix.
The Not-So-Monthly October 2012 Mix is perhaps “late,” but it’s still jam packed with some great tracks. If you love Aeroplane and his last mix, as well as his remixes, then you’ll love the track selection for this mix. See if you can identify some of the tracks. And if not, don’t worry, Aeroplane included a list of all the songs. So you don’t have to search the earth for hours trying to find the pleasure to your ears; the track list is already done for you.
Be sure to stay tuned for more from Aeroplane and pay close attention to his new single, “In Her Eyes” featuring Jamie Principle. The song will be released on Aeroplane’s new label, Aeropop, and you can get your hands on the EP Nov 5th. The mix below features the Tiger & Woods Remix, which should be on the EP as well.

2. Mock & Toof – My Head
3. Monitor 66 – Triscuits

Wow, September is next week. Time has gone by so quickly, and I’m already in my last semester of undergrad. Before I know it, Spring will be here and I’ll be sitting in graduate classes at University of Baltimore.
I considered taking a hiatus for awhile, but I actually really love school and immersing myself in intellectual endeavors. So I’m excited about my studies at UB and soaking up as much knowledge as I can in my intended program of study. It’s a two-year program, so I doubt I’ll be taking any hiatuses.
Speaking of “hiatus,” one of my favorite producers Aeroplane has been on a long hiatus from dropping his monthly mixes. Nevertheless, his previous mixes are far from antiquated, but that doesn’t mean I wasn’t anxious to hear something fresh.
I wanted something fresh, and I got exactly that with a lovely free download of Aeroplane’s new August 2012 mix.
His new mix is an awesome collective of disco house, a little electro pop, and other stylings of house and electronic. The song selection is perfection, the order of each track is superb, and the transitions are flawless. Aeroplane, as usual, never disappoints with his monthly mixes. Hopefully he won’t go a hiatus, and we can expect another awesome mix in September.

Thank you Pandora! If it wasn’t for me laying in my bed this morning and listening to my Pandora station based off the sounds of Aeroplane, then I would have never heard of Kito & Reija Lee. And if I wouldn’t have heard their insanely dope song “Sweet Talk,” then I wouldn’t have gone on a Youtube search and learned they changed their name to FAUX NO; which lead me to the discovery of their latest single “Velma Kelly.”
So who are the girls that make up FAUX NO? Well, the duo consists of Australian natives Maaike and Reija, who now both live in London and produce insanely dope music. It isn’t often that I like to use the word “dope” due to how played out it can become, but seriously, FAUX NO’s beats and lyrics are dope, epic, and spectacular.
Their latest track under the moniker FAUX NO came out about a month ago, and the video has this amazing vintage vibe. And if the title of the song “Velma Kelly” sounds familiar, then perhaps you remember the main character from the hit musical, Chicago.
I love the music video for “Velma Kelly” and I could totally just watch + listen to it over and over again. I’m now a fan of FAUX NO and I’m anxious to hear more music. But I still have to search through YouTube and listen to more of their tracks under the moniker Kito & Reija Lee.
I’m dying to get my hands on Flight Facilities forthcoming track “With You” featuring Grovesnor. I watched the 30 second teaser for it, and I was just wishing I could speed up time to the May 14th release of the track on Future Classic Records. But in the meantime, I at least can rock out to perhaps one of the best mixtapes I’ve heard in quite some time, 37,000 ft.
Sometimes I wish I actually dated guys that believed in 80s romance and the art of making mixtapes. Of course, it’s not going to be an actual tape, but a cool CD is still nice here and there. I’ve actually made a few mixtapes for exes I’ve dated in the past, but I myself have never gotten one from anyone else. Yet, if anyone were ever going to give me a mixtape, I would honestly want it to be as epic as 37,ooo ft. The track listing is impeccable! If someone would have given me this mixtape at a gift, I would have probably fallen head over heels for them. I’m serious, this mixtape speaks to my soul!
The mixtape came out a little less than a year ago, but it’s still oh so timeless. If you haven’t noticed by now, this is like my 3rd or 4th time blogging about Flight Facilities. I’m a huge fan of Flight Facilities, and I always knew that there music taste was probably insane. So it’s nice to listen to 37,000 ft and get a sense of what inspires the duo to make epic tunes.
The mixtape does a nice job of bringing together electro pop, disco bravado, snazzy electro grooves, and that hint of pulsating house beats. The mixtape starts off with one of my favorite Talking Heads songs,”This Must Be The Place.”Following the first track, the mixtape is a non-stop show of just epic tunes that are essential to creating the perfect soundtrack of life.
Oh, and did I mention that this mixtape is a free download? Well, it is. So download it! Don’t miss out on the seamless mixing and snazzy tunes that will brighten up your day. This mixtape is a most for EDM lovers who enjoy disco, electro pop, dance, and hints of house. You need 37,000 ft in your life. I know I do.
