Rob Solo, Chris Rockwell, VH3, and Tim Foran at Heaven, July 25th

Our good friend Sir Chris of Rockwell has honored our family with a gift in the form of a megamix – 50 tracks in 66 minutes! Last time he did something like this, we ended up with the guilty pleasure that is the HIGHSCHOOLDANCEMEGAMIXTAPE ( Grab it! ) which was packed with 50 of the cheesiest dance tracks from the 90’s. And now we have the Soul Selectro promo mix to promote the launch of SoulSelecta.ca! As he tells it, this mix was meant to be a collection of his favorite tracks from the last year or so. These numbers are his bread-n-butter at his Friday and Saturday night gig at Cornerstone in Ottawa’s Byward Market. A fun, vocal, and very accessible mix, this one will feel right at home on your summertime playlist and quite a few of these tracks are staples for the SoulSelecta dancefloor. Unlike conventional mixtapes, this one weaves through tracks quickly with 4 songs going at once at times and will definitely require a second and third listen. So whip up some sangria, wipe down those patio chairs, get your bikinis on, and turn this one up!
