DJ Skeet Skeet aka Yung Skeeter – Yacht Rock Mix 2009

https://www.thefuture.fm/mixes/29112/yungskeeter/yacht-rock-mix-2009

 I’m taking on a new occasional residency this month at Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, and part of the musical palette I’ll be picking from includes Yacht Rock, a genre which for a while baffled me with its name (which was originally meant as a pejorative term, but has been embraced by fans), but is actually strangely apt.

This is one of my favourite mixes of the style, and one of my favourite aspects of this particular niche is spotting the many samples which have been dug out of the genre. So mix yourselves a cocktail, pop on a Hawaiian shirt, short-shorts and some aviators, and turn your heating up to the maximum setting to enjoy this one.
