"Clothes off, tailfeather on, let's march to cosmic blues-rock-samba like it's Rio '79," say The Flying Mojito Bros about their "carnivalesque hallucination of ZZ Top's classic hit celebrating cheap shades." 

You can catch The Flying Mojito Bros live at Pet Deaths launch show at The Social (DJ set) on October 25th, the Eastern Front night (full show) Wild Card Brewery on November 11th and the Basement Tapes 5th Birthday (DJ set ) with Black Peaches, Vels Trio, Jouis at The Lexington on December 2nd.  And you'll surely be wanting this limited edition Flying Mojito Bros' T-Shirt too.

Thanks to everyone who has supported and contributed to the site since 2009. To celebrate our birthday (which was actually back in June but never mind) the great DJ Same has recorded this exclusive mix of some of the best-loved remixes and edits we've featured over the years. 

1.  Bless the Rains - Late Nite Tuff Guy

2.  Cole Loves Your Insides Out - Cole Medina

3.  Triolisme - DJ Steef

4.  Love Love Love - Low Motion Disco (Soft Rocks Remix)


Per Åslund has collected AOR, Westcoast and Yacht Rock since the 1980s and co-hosts the Keep It Smooth podcast in Sweden. This second exclusive mix for us features some of the classiest rarities in his collection (David Wingo is one of the top discoveries here), as well as a couple of much-loved deeper cuts by the legends such as Ambrosia.

Inspired by the Springsteen 1995 original version of 'Secret Garden' after hearing it used in David Simon's recent HBO series Show Me A Hero, French DJ/producer V4YS has created this "deep, balearic/slo-mo style rework." As with Cousin Cole's classic remix of 'I'm On Fire', this track utilises Springteen's downbeat, melancholic side to great effect.

A regular contributor to this site with his Dream On series of mixes, Tobias E. Torjusson is a driving force behind the "Marina Soul, AOR, Westcoast, Yacht Rock and Sunset Disco revival" on many other fronts too - most notably, his fine Norwegian label Preservation Records.

From their audio-visual Rodeo Cosmico mix to live DJ sets supporting Young Gun Silver Fox and top country rock edits of classics by CSN and others, Flying Mojito Bros have been  keeping the '70s fire better than anyone else in London over the last few months. Now they've turned their attention to Westcoast jazz-rock guitar legend Larry Carlton and his 1978 track I Apologize, beefing up the bottom end and adding synths to give the smoothness a cosmic touch.

Be With Records' mission to bring Los Angeles blue-eyed yacht soul legend Ned Doheny to European audiences continues. In 2015 the label brought Doheny over for a highly successful tour (his acoustic set at the Greenwich Yacht Club was a highlight of the year for us) and they reissued the classic Doheny LPs (such as Hard Candy from 1976 featuring 'Get It Up For Love', a track featured on a thousand mixtapes over the last decade).

In June we featured Mojo Filter's Swingin', Whoopin' Re-Love of Lana Del Rey's 'Video Games' and now as promised we have an exclusive mix to celebrate his new album Modern Re-Loves Volume 3, a compilation of his inventive and idiosyncratic remixes of modern rock and pop artists. We caught up with Ben Zaven-Crane, the man behind Mojo Filter and our Vintage Edits CD series...

With nearly 25,000 plays on Soundcloud over the last few days, dj Shmeejay's latest exclusive mix for us shows once again that he is a leading light in AOR Disco world. This selection of the best classic rock edits and reworks also features two other much-loved contributors to the site: RedKen, whose superb Ned Doheny remix was recently released on Be With Records, and Mojo Filter, the man behind our Vintage Edits CD series.

Many thanks to Paul Hillery for his latest exclusive mix for us. "I'm not sure which genre it fits in as a whole," he says.
