Alec Carlsson is not your average 16 year old. When I was 16 I was obsessed with girls and looking for any opportunity to see the world while my parents were still flipping the bill. For Mr. Carlsson, his opportunities to see the world come in the form of tours, and at this point the girls are probably obsessing over him (of course he is also from Paris, which has never been a bad pickup line in any country…). With the musical talents of a modern Mozart and nothing but time ahead of him to hone these talents, you should probably remember the name. Here is a recent release entitled ‘Paris Fried Chicken’ which is so auditorily delicious it would bring a tear to even the Colonel’s eye.
The next is a really phenomenal mix done by the trio Altered Beats (composed of Blorgio, Kuzam, and Evilbass) whose members hail from different parts of Italy so you know they have style. Their self-proclaimed “electro-turbofunk” genre is designed for dancing and this summer mix is perfect if you want to guarantee good music while still enjoying your own party. So from Bologna to your speakers comes the Altered Beats’ Summer Mixtape 2011. Enjoy.
