lazerdisk-diplo-friends-mix Not for nothing, it’s been a while since I’ve listened to a mix twice in a row (outside of the occasional essential mix, like Hot Since 82’s or Skrillex’s) and a lot of that has to do with the fact that I haven’t really been impressed with many lately. Sure, I still subscribe to quite a few of my favorite podcasts, which are great for a listen through once, but it’s been a while since I’ve heard one that has impressed me on all fronts: creativity, song selection and mixing. Lazerdisk (who shortened their name, I guess) just put through one such mix on Diplo‘s BBC syndicated¬†Diplo & Friends¬†radio show. The hour long mix packs in a whopping 67 songs, so for you doing the math at home, nod with approval. And we’re not talking 128 into 128 here… tracks from all walks of life have made their way into the mix. I was even pleasantly surprised to see Paces, one of my favorite up-and-coming artists, had his song “Ignite”¬†featured on the mix (albeit for 45 seconds). While I’ve never seen Lazerdisk live and, quite honestly never felt drawn to, this mix has turned that around completely, as they are now definitely on my list to check out soon. Grab the free DL and take this one to go. Make sure to check out their new remix of Lorde‘s “Royals” while you’re at it, also featured on the mix.
