In the midst of their gargantuan DJ-Kicks World Tour with Wolf+Lamb, Soul Clap partnered up with Beatport and Mixcloud to put together a mixtape contest. Perhaps they needed some soothing sounds to ease their lonely hearts on all those plane rides? The turn-out was spectacular, with over 50 skilled selectors posting themed mixes for those times when words just aren’t enough.
With so many quality entries, the selection process ran a bit long, but in the end we all came to an agreement. Congrats to Davide from Sedma, whose winning mix incorporated everything from Chromeo covering The Eagles, to Michael Henderson, to Bill Cosby. Stream the winning mix below, and check out the top five finalists over at Soul Clap’s Mixcloud page.
We’d also like to send a valentine shout-out to all the DJs who channeled their feelings into these mixes, may your hearts not be lonely for long!
