Heat Up With Chocolate Puma's Winter 2012 Mix

Winter mixes are often sluggish affairs, full of easygoing tunes for those long huddles in the living room avoiding the cold. But not for Chocolate Puma. The Netherlands duo of Gaston Steenkist and René ter Horst are known for their funky brand of deep, carnival-flavored Dutch house, and on their winter 2012 mix they don't disappoint. Highlights include the loose percussion of Erick Morillo and Harry Romero's remix of "Beat of the Drum," the deep tech-house clicking of "Stiffness," and the whipping synth melody of Angger Dimas' "Hey Freak!" It's a foolproof dance party for your next snow day.
