The Stereosonic countdown is on, with just a few weeks until the first days of summer. On the cusp of the festival kicking off, Onelove will release the Onelove Sonic Boom Box 2013 compilation, with a couple of Stereosonic's stars on mixing duties. Having drawn some of the festival's biggest-ever crowds in 2011, and with a headline spot this year, Swedish gun Avicii is taking charge of the first disc. Then on disc two it’s over to Australian production team Feenixpawl, whose international standing accelerated this year thanks to the much-flogged In My Mind.
Securing Avicii for his first Australian mix compilation is a big coup for Onelove. The young star recently reeled in the votes in the DJ Mag Top 100 DJs poll, landing at #3 in the rankings. He's also been industrious in the studio these last 12 months, and his mix here doubles as a showcase of his handiwork. My Feelings For You, Levels, Fade Into Darkness, Two Million, Dancing In My Head and the Lenny Kravitz hook-up Superlove are all worked in, alongside big-room-tested gear from the likes of Otto Knows, Deadmau5, Albin Myers and Deniz Koyu.
Avicii also can't resist the pull of In My Mind, which naturally makes its way onto Feenixpawl's disc too. Feenixpawl keeps up the festival-ready vibe, working in Australian producers like Kaz James, Dirty South, Andy Murphy and Ivan Gough.
