I’m bummed I didn’t find this earlier, back when summer was really doing the dang thing, and not wincing away into a premature autumn (if you’re west coaster, perhaps you know what I’m talking about). On the plus side, this new-to-me Summer Mix  by Miami’s Champion Sound Crew might just hold off those clouds a tad longer.

Champion Sound MIA have consistently been putting on big nights at the Electric Pickle in Miami, as well as producing high-quality mixes that bring some of that South Florida vibe out to the world. Champion Sound’s got four DJs – Manuvers, A Train, Lumin, and the homie Sire Esquire – and each one takes a chunk of the mix, bringing their own sounds and tastes to one cohesive project.

It’s good times, and with shorter days just around the corner, this might be the only thing that’ll get you through (unless they follow it up with airline tickets to Miami, which we here at LxNxM would never dream of turning down). Tracklisting after the jump.
