Hi there,
Anyone knows what this type is? (The one at the "Summer Megamix" part)

I isolated the letters of the type in the linked image in Photoshop and saved them back as a JPG. Then using teh "WhatTheFont" tool at MyFonts.com, I found one font with four possible weights/variants for it:

1. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/efscangraphic/harlow-sh/solid-regular/ - Harlow Solid SH Regular
2. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/imageclub/harlow/solid/ - Harlow ICG Solid
3. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/harlow/solid/ - Harlow Solid
4. http://new.myfonts.com/fonts/agfa/harlow/solid-plain/ - Harlow Solid Plain

From what I can see, they're a pretty close fit. Unfortunately, they're not a exact fit since the image's font has a very clean cut to the edges and ends of the letters while Harlow is very rounded.

Maybe someone else can find a better match. :)

Edit: Looks like Mark and I found the same thing. Though comparing the two, Harlow's rounded while the original's font isn't.

The "Solid" style is rounded, the outline/shadow version isn't.

Ah, you're right. I didn't even check the outline/shadow version.
