You know we like Ancient Astronauts, we posted a Q&A with them on Monday. Today they released a mixtape as a sort of aural appetizer for their debut LP, We Are To Answer (out June 9th on ESL). Entitled Heart of the Future, the hour plus mix also serves as an introduction to the influences of Kabanjak and Dogu, aka Ancient Astronauts.

“From old school hip hop legends to new school deep beat masters, the mix skips in and out of genres lacing hints of reggae with thick slabs of funk, creating an overarching vibe of just damn good summer hanging music.”
