State Mix: Cian Ó Cíobháin’s ‘You & Me Burning in the Summertime’

One of our favourite moments of summer is when we get Cian Ó Cíobháin’s seasonal mixtape to share with you, now in its third edition. No better time to share it with you than on this longest day, with so much light above us.

“This is my third summer mixtape for State. It features tracks that evoke summer days and nights, some recent but many of an older vintage; taking in everything from slow-mo, widescreen hip-hop and reggae, to Brazilian funk and Shane McGowan at his most tender.  Like the previous mixtapes in the series, I tried to sequence the tracks in such a way as to provide a soundtrack to accompany a listener through a sultry summer’s day, from morning through to nightfall.  However, whether by accident or design,  I think that this one ended up mostly hanging out in a space around 4.30am on an idyllic midsummer’s morning, where dawn comes early and the pulse of the natural world seems eminently more heightened and alive.”  – Cian Ó Cíobháin
