Casual Love Affair – A Mix For Aritzia
The Rub was commissioned to do a mix for the Canadian based women’s clothing retail chain Aritzia, to be used in all of their stores across North America. For my installment, it gave me an opportunity to play some music that I normally wouldn’t throw in some of my live sets, and to try and paint a picture of this “casual love affair.” Basically, I wanted to take a very sexy direction for the sound of this mix but it also hits on all sorts influences from French music, African, some Brit pop, disco boogie, Moohmbahton and other grooves. I start out pretty mid-tempo but with just amount of groove to it so that it’s dance worthy. Then towards the middle and end the pace and energy picks up. And then at the very end I break it down with a very smooth finish. I hope you enjoy it.
