What do Hot Chip, Joakim, A-Trak, Midnight Juggernauts, Munk, Tiga & Brodinski, Holy Ghost, Breakbot, The Twelves, Yuksek and Jupiter all have in common?
They're all playing at the incredible Calvi on the Rocks festival this year.
festival in Corsica an island in the Mediterranean Sea that is West of Italy, South-east of the French Mainland and North of the island of Sardinia. It's a hybrid of
music both live
and from some of the worlds foremost
holidaying in the Mediterranean
and of course, great
sets and live music
this, everybody on the island is invited to
The whole thing of course going over 5 days.
And all we've got to offer in Australia is 2 days up in bloody Woodford.
Now maybe you're wondering why I'm talking about this considering how far away I live from Corsica, and the reasons aren't that the organisers are shipping me a case of Russian Standard Vodka for a plug, but rather that by talking about it I could get my hands on one of the best mixtapes I've heard in quite a while.
Jupiter are a group out of Paris and London in the same vein as Joakim and Cut Copy, making music that is, as they describe it, electro funk disco. They're really good. If you check out their Facebook page and scroll down you can preview some of their work. This mixtape is a taste of Calvi to come, with all the tracks being from artists who are performing at the July festival. Get on it.
