How good was yesterday? By yesterday I mean Sunday. Now that it’s finally getting warmer in Melbourne, my love for the ol’ day-o-rest has been reignited. Aside from the whole ‘Fuck work starts tmw’ downer, Sundays might just be the best day out there.

Which brings me to this sweet free download from my mate Mexi. Whilst he’s now living Stateside doing whatever it is one does in So-Cal, back in the day when I first moved to Melbourne he hosted a day party at Section 8 on a Sunday with his partner (dj not life) No Name Nathan, called Jackpot Sundays. And a jackpot it was. The day would kick off at 4pm and run till 11pm and was a heady mix of hangovers, Hip-Hop, Downtempo, Dancehall, Funk, gin, juice, weed and good weather. Ahh, those were good times.

And I’m reliving those good times right now, as Mexi has created a mix in homage to those awesome days of summer. And this one here is a labor of love, two years in the making:  “This mix was a nightmare to construct. I started it back in 2011, mixing live into Audacity on a dying G5 iMac. The leaking capacitors in the iMac were wreaking havoc on my recordings. Whole recordings would be ruined by glitches, forcing me to start again.
I left the mix alone in it’s basic form for 12 months until finally making the effort to hunt samples for the intro this year.”

Well it was worth the wait, your Sunday now has the perfect soundtrack. Full track listing below. You can download it for free here. BRING ON SUMMER!
