Wow, December already. I swear it really does feel like time is speeding up. As if the entire world, better yet, existence itself is racing towards a finish line of sorts. With all the things going on in the world, that is not the most reassuring of thoughts, kind of depressing I know. But, here’s the thing, the older I get, the more I realize just how important music is in our lives, and the more I appreciate its power. Call me an escapist if you will, but I firmly believe that no matter how heavily the pressures of the world can sometimes weigh down on your soul, music has the power to uplift you. With that in mind, this WeekendMix consists of two mixes, two beautiful mixes that seem to hold that power to make things right.

The first mix is by our Brooklyn friend Nutritious. This is the same DJ and Producer that we interviewed a few months back, the same one High Times mag called “a musical healer,” and his mix titled, Body Out of Control Three, featuring some of the best underground tracks from this past year, is perfect. And I really do mean perfect. Nutritious travels far into the deep underbelly of House music and takes you on an excursion through many layers of pounding four-to-the-floor beats, sweet sounding grooves, just the right dose of electro vibes, sweaty funk, and Afro rhythms that will rattle your bones. Close the blinds or open the windows, pump the stereo or strap on your headphones, however you do it, get ready to shake the spirit up. Nutritious is going to feed your soul.

Lastly, we have Stefano Anselmo from Italy. Stefano’s set is named simply ‘DJ Set December 2011’ and if the name is not sufficient indication, it is simple and to the point. Of course, by simple, I am referring to how easily he moves the listener with a finely selected and mixed set. No tricks, no attempt to wash you away in ever increasing decibels, nothing but simple, beautiful, and uplifting vocal House tracks who’s only point is to make you happy. By the end of this mix, your heart will be smiling, I can assure you that.

There you have it, two mixes, just under three hours of music to listen to as you go about your business in this crazy world. Music can’t fix the problems of the world, but it can fix you, at least long enough until you’re ready to face the world again, and sometimes that’s all you need.
