Mixmag music round-up: April
April was a fucking blinder for exclusive music
How the fuck is it nearly May already? We're close to the summer now and although the UK weather is as intermittent as Deadmau5's industry beefs, we're counting down the days till festival season.
With that being said, the music that's guiding us to the summer months has been pure fire. January, February and March all provided top notch musical gold but now it's time for April to show us what it was made of.
Highlights include Papa Sven wheeling out some new remixes of a few of his classic jams, Dean Grenier joining the Omnidisc ranks in hellish style and Alan Fitzpatrick, who handed us an outrageous exclusive from his entry to the fabric CD ranks.
Our mixes were hot as well this month, with the likes of D'Julz, Julia Govor, DJ Marfox and Jane Fitz.
Time to tuck in to some large slabs of auditory chunk. Thanks April, you were sick.

Dennis Ferrer 'Son Of Raw' (André Hommen remix)
Happy fucking birthday Dennis. 10 years ago you released 'Son Of Raw' and it's one of your best tracks ever.
The house classic got a special series of remixes this year for the big anniversary and André Hommen smacked it out of the park with his. One of our favourites this month.
Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons 'Trouble At The Séance' (Kölsch Remix)
Over the last twelve months or so, Crosstown Rebels daddy Damian Lazarus has been focusing on the mystical and dream-like with his new Ancient Moons project. The album dropped last year and now comes the remix LP. The list of artists on board is pretty epic and Kölsch's remix is our pick of the bunch. Good job we got the premiere then.
