I spent this entire week with the young wolf known as Durante, and every day I saw him either working on or talking about this mixtape he was putting together for the homies over at Dancing Astronaut. “It’s FIRE,” he expressed to me with confidence. I believed him, of course, but obviously I had to wait until today to fully find out for myself. Upon two straight listens in a row, Durante’s new mix has officially been confirmed fire with a big fat co-sign from us at Nest HQ.
Gentle house vibes tantalize in the mix’s first half or so, tenderly leading us into jack time as piano stabs become a mainstay with entries from Secondcity, Jonas Rathsman, and Durante’s own collab with Chuck Ellis, “Slow Burn“. From there, he revs up the heat in the second half, turning the lights all the way down for some proper club vibes. Keep an ear out for “Full Moon” as well as a brand new edit of Preditah right there close to the end before Durante takes it down a notch with his closing number.
Listen below, and go give Durante a digital high-five on Twitter.
