After making frequent appearances on XLR8R's radar over the course of the last year—including the honor of being one of our picks for 2013's best new artists—Ontarian singer/songwriter Jessy Lanza has returned with a brand-new mix for the Modular label's Modcast series. The 34-minute session was created to kick-off Lanza's second stint of North American tour dates, during which she will accompany Australian synth-pop virtuosos Cut Copy.
Lanza's new mix is jam packed with an assortment of various R&B timbres and interspersed with brief touches of deep dancefloor sounds—including tracks from Bambounou, Shlohmo, DJ Sliink, Slugabed, Tokimonsta, Tink, and more. The full DJ set can be streamed and downloaded for free here, where a quick interview with Lanza is also included. Additionally, her remaining tour dates with Cut Copy are available below.
