It's the creme de la creme from a town called Paris. There are a few things you can always count on Summer to bring every year. The scorching heat and beach parties are a given, but the hottest season also means its time for another one of Arthur King's annual mixtapes! Each year the talented French DJ/Producer selects his top summer jams from a wide range of styles (from hip-hop to house, electro, funk and everything in between) mixed to perfection to ensure maximum groovage whether your chillin' poolside or gettin' down on the floor. The 2013 edition steps it up with flawless selection including joints from Kendrick Lamar, Riton, A$AP Rocky, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, James Blake, XXYYXX, Billy Paul, Frank Ocean, Blawan, Jessie Ware, Todd Edwards and many others, all housed in an incredible booklet designed by Jordy Van Den Nieuwendijk. Nieuwendijk actually made twenty new illustrations for the occassion that are the perfect visual accompaniment to the mix. Limited edition, recommended.
