XLR8R's Best of 2014: Podcasts

When people talk about XLR8R, there's a good chance that our podcast series is going to be part of the conversation. Simply put, it's one of our calling cards, which is why we do our best to be especially selective when curating the mixes from week to week. It's not easy to stand out in a world where just about everyone has a mix series, but we take pride in the fact that our podcasts continue to be some of the most popular content on the site. During 2014, we featured nearly 50 exclusive mixes, covering a wide variety of artists, styles, and sounds. Some were geared toward the club, while others offered abstract listening experiences. Some found artists digging deep in their record collections, while others consisted of nothing but unreleased material. This diversity wasn't exactly unexpected; after all, when it comes to the XLR8R podcast, there are very few rules that we expect artists to follow. Still, it doesn't make choosing our favorite mixes any easier. Nevertheless, we've gone back and selected the 10 mixes that left the biggest impression on us in 2014, and for good measure, we've also included a breakdown of the year's 10 most popular podcasts. As it happens, the two lists have a lot of overlap. Read more »
