Podcast 46: 3 Is A Crowd

Italy's most fun-loving trio, 3 Is A Crowd (3IAC), recently described its sound to XLR8R as "Hiphopglitchyuptempogroovy house for party harders." (Our interpretation: pounding, beat-driven music made with a bombastic house party in mind.) So when we asked Albi, Froz, and Giga to create a DJ mix for the next installment of the podcast series, it's hardly surprising that they turned over a bundle of tracks that starts with fast-paced, hard-hitting kicks and snares and rarely lets up. This 50-minute-plus podcast has more energy than the entire Nike Run series combined, with a cast that includes Crookers, Modeselektor, Dizzee Rascal, Benga, Tommie Sunshine, and even Aphex Twin. Naturally, it wouldn't be complete without a few tunes from the trio itself, and they generously weave several of their own tracks and remixes throughout.
