Summer is officially here so throw on your bathing suit, head for the pool, and turn up the fun with this mix from Steve Darko!


With the chilly weather behind us, we look forward to the warmth of the sun, and with it comes the desire to dance! Lucky for us, we can count on the musical visionaries of the world to keep us twisting and shaking, and Boston-native Steve Darko is always up for the task. In fact, he’s been turning heads since the moment he stepped foot onto the scene, unleashing trippy bangers, high octane dancefloor smashers, and cerebral mood lifters on colorful labels like Box Of Cats, Slothacid, Psycho Disco!, Holy Molé, Country Club Disco, and the label that changed it all for him, Dirtybird

Over the years Claude VonStroke’s protege’ has never ceased to amaze fans, dropping jaws with tunes such as “Thumbs” with Uncle Kev, “That’s Hot” alongside Big J and Oonagi, and “Red” with Nala, along with remixes like “Magic” by VNSSA and Ocean Roulette. In 2021 he dropped his addicting debut LP, Midnight Swim, which further cemented his status as one of the most beloved rising stars in the scene. Last month, he returned to the label with yet another feast for the ears, serving up Abyss just in time for the change of the season.

Speaking of which, now that summer is upon us, it’s time to celebrate with tunes that turn the energy up! Always ready to party, Steve Darko has happily obliged that call with an exclusive guest mix featuring tunes that will surely inspire you to pour a margarita, throw on the high SPF, and pull your friends out under the sun for an impromptu dance session!

This mix features some spicy summer jams that have been highlight records in the last few shows I’ve played. Fire up the grill, sit back, relax, and enjoy the sweet sounds of summer kick drums…

You’ll enter your happy place with tracks like “Let’s Go Dancing” by Mindchatter and Kyle Watson and “Whoop” by Gene Farris and Sacha Robotti, while also being treated with Steve Darko originals like “Way Back” and “Small Things” with Nik Thrine. There’s also an extra special ID in there, so pay close attention, because this one is absolutely nutty and has the potential to spin dancefloors into top-tier delirium. In the end, you’ll leave delightfully buzzed and ready for your next festival adventure.

You heard the man! It’s time to kick off the summer right, so, press play on Steve Darko’s exclusive guest mix below, and make sure to grab your copy of Abyss on your favorite music platform!
