Sweaty nights and four-day weekends—summertime is here again and so's our annual Summer Music issue. We've rounded up our favorite garden bar jams and hits for the hammock, and prepared a proper soundtrack for beachside iPod speakers. Six years into his career, Soulja Boy is still welcome at our barbecue, and so are FADER #74 stars Jhene Aiko, Pure X and Grimes, Little Dragon, Fat Trel and Shabazz Palaces. We've mixed in two unreleased tracks: Clams Casino's "Japan" and cover star Vybz Kartel's "My Crew", and a whole mess of other gems.
