Download a New Mix from Braiden

Back in 2012, Braiden delivered an excellent edition of the XLR8R podcast.

Now, out of nowhere, Chicago footwork mavens DJ Rashad and DJ Spinn, alongside Bay Area upstart Taso, have jumped into the equation, operating together as Teklife to deliver a sped-up and frenetic remix of Snoop Dogg's and Dâm Funk's "Do My Thang."
