One Year

Summer Cool launched January 28th, 2014 as a press and artist management group with three clients and a simple mandate to promote and engage the artists and musicians we were close to. After one year we have expanded into a record label and distribution collective serving ten clients, released seven mixtapes, one EP, a compilation cassette, as well as co-promoting and organizing events in Berlin, Montreal and Toronto.
We are thankful for the support we have received, the people we met and worked with and are looking forward to what is next. Among whatever else, we’re planning two compilations, expanding our webstore and distro network, releasing more original Summer Cool material and continuing to experiment and grow alongside our  creative communities.

To celebrate the anniversary of Summer Cool, our friends at The Sky Lounge remixed our first compilation into one fluid journey through all of the classic tracks. There is only a limited number of the original run still available in our webshop/distro for purchase.

Mr. Chill x Summer Cool Mix №6

Mr. Chill is a producer/pal that recently came to Montreal from Vancouver and is a patron of the party vessel that is ASL Singles Club. That very label is putting out some very chill and nice shit including Project Pablo, Wolfey, Prison Garde, etc.

We suggested he should whip up a mix – Enjoy
