Come YOLO47 I’ll be a free man. Or maybe not “free” as much as a man of fewer worries. But until then, on the final grind of the school year with my UC peoples. I included a list of some of my favorite sets and mixes with the usual list, because I find they’re best to study with. I tried to put them in order of ones I liked best at the top…but I really love em all. Use or misuse at your own discretion and good luck to everyone. For everyone else out of school, fuck yourselves. Except for not really…I’ll be with ya in a week.

The Twelves Essential Mix
My favorite essential mix ever. I can’t and won’t give it a rest. 2 solid hours of grade A electronic and house. Uniquely mixed in a way that only the Twelves can do.
Soulwax Live at Soulwaxmas 2008
Soulwax doing what they do best: flawless live sets. Little biased on this one because I saw them right before they played this in Europe at HHM 08 and it’s pretty similar, as far as I remember.
Moonchild’s Birthday Mix for Les Petits Bruits
Moonchild is definitely making a name for himself in the French/Disco house scene. This won’t be the last time he comes up on C+A+D. This mix has a bunch of his songs and remixes. Feel good and bass filled tunes.
Nero Essential Mix
Nero split this up into 3 parts. Dubstep/Electro/everything. The tracklist speaks for itself. Another favorite essential mix.
Treasure Fingers Live From Temple SF
Treasure Fingers…this guy can do no wrong. My favorite set of his so far.
Wolfgang Gartner Live at Winter Music Conference 2010
Right before Wolfgang took his final leap into the group of premier DJs. From his live show recordings and essential mix, I’d say this is his most well put together.
Treasure Fingers 2011 Spring Mix *Recorded Live In England*
Free Treasure Fingers Spring mix! More great house.
Fake Blood Essential Mix
Classic. Voted 4th best essential mix of 2009 and by good reason. Fake Blood is a bo$$.
Swedish House Mafia Live from EDC 2010
I’ll never forget this set from EDC. Witnessing this live put house music on a completely different level for me. One of my go-to’s for being productive.
Calvin Harris Essential Mix
2 hours of the Calvin Harris we know and love. He mixes it up a lot in this one. Hard filthy electro and dancy disco.
Soulwax Live at Hard Summer 2010
Soulwax returns to LA after a 2 year hiatus, and this low quality rip is all I have to remember it.
Wolfgang Gartner Essential Mix
60+ tracks in this massive mix by one of the top production wizards in the world. I was expecting more to be honest, but still a keeper.
