There’s always something coming out the speakers in the Ticket Arena office, so we thought we’d share some of the sonic splendours that soundtrack all of our hard work. Now a weekly feature that brings a different artist to the fore each Thursday, the TA Mix Of The Week scours the vaults for some of our favourite sets of old and keeps a beady eye out for the classics of the future, serving up a taste of the artists that make us happy to do what we do.
There’s nothing quite like dance music at a summer festival, and with our favourite season now fully underway, we’ve been listening back to favourite sets from previous outings to get us psyched for what’s to come over the next few weeks. With plenty to look forward to we’ve been scanning lineups to pick out our must-see acts, and with sets lined up at both Farr and Dimensions, Tama Sumo certainly fits the bill.
Easily one of the most respected DJs in Europe, the Panorama Bar resident has been simulating earthquakes on the dance floor for many years, and with plenty of old mixes to browse through, there was plenty for us to dig up from her ravey past. Settling on this mix from Dekmantel a few years back, we re-discovered exactly why she’s at the top of the DJ leagues, with her heavy grooves and snarly acid doubling up to travel through 70 minutes of killer house and techno. A necessity to see this summer, Tama Sumo appears at Farr Festival between Thursday 13th and Sunday 16th July, as well as Dimensions Festival in Croatia at the end of August through to Sunday 3rd September.
