“On The Water,” the latest mix tape from Chicago DJ duo We Theory (note: I know the pair socially) is an expertly crafted soundtrack to the end of summer. Split into four sections, the tape spans surfer rock, reggae, yacht rock, and psychedelic rock. The obvious clips are there, like George Benson’s “Breezin” in the yacht rock section, but there are a few expert notes, like music from Japanese surf rocker Takeshi Terauchi (whose “Kanjinchou” sounds like the theme song to a tripped-out “Hawaii Five-O”/”Kill Bill” crossover).
