      • nice! I use ableton as well. The possibilites are endless!

      • ya i wish i had known about it sooner!

  • thanks haley!

  • thank you martine!

  • Drew Bremer

    YESSS! Been waiting awhile for this! Thanks, Jeff! 

    • hope you digggit

      • Drew Bremer

        I find myself listening to all three of your mixes quite often and was just curious where I can find similar artists doing similar mixes? 

      • i really like The Twelves, look for their BBC Essential Mix, its amazing.

  • Grant Parrinello

    you nailed the sentiment of the summer.  nice work.

  • Awesome! You just my next late work night/late party night effortless. Me and my fellow babes thank you, Jeff.

  • Leo

    A whole lot of awesomeness!! The studio is bouncing…

  • oh good one

  • steven

    Jeff! here’s a secret: you shared the twelves’ mixes with me via email a while back and I felt like a million bucks! [don’ you know you’re a celebrity? :P ] I’m driving to San Fran early tmw and this’ll be the soundtrack, so thank you.

  • excellent! :]

  • Mokasi

    A Most Awesome mix !!!!! Thank you :)

  • i love your summer mixes!  this is great.

  • Jon Tai

    Jeff, props. I’m pretty familiar with the subtleties of mixtapes, but not where you actually mix the songs together into a seamless whole, and the flow  in this is really awesome. Thanks for sharing!

    • cheers Jon, im still learning how to use Ableton but it makes it really fun to work on a mix

  • Mike

    It’s really awkward that you say everyone’s name in reply. It’s like those salesman at the office that always say your name back you when you first meet them because they learned something about that in marketing school or a book or something. It’s creepy, seriously, don’t do it anymore.

  • Muna

    The Freaks and Geeks clip killed me! Haha, great mix as always man.

    • something about the whole vibe of the show is somehow “summer” to me, the same way The Sandlot is

  • ingridvwells

    soooooo gooooooood. 

  • Marion

    It is bringing so much sunshine in a very grey Paris. Thank you so much !

    • im glad it has made it all the way there! the mix has made it to places i have never been!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
