Podcast 59: 86 'Til Infinity PDXLR8R by Copy

It's been a blast this month bringing XLR8R readers the very best of the Portland scene, from bands to fashion to coffee, but it wouldn't be a proper celebration of PDX without letting you experience the aural side of all the artists you've been reading about. Fortunately, our man Copy stepped up to the task of bringing the sounds of Portland to your speakers. The 28-year-old electro producer and member of the Audio Dregs roster hand-picked the tracks on this exclusive hour-long mix he dubbed 86 'Til Infinity PDXLR8R, reeling in dance-grunge master Yacht, the quirky songwriters in Panther, ’80s sensations (and husband-and-wife production duo) Nu Shooz, and many other familiar faces.

Aside from DJing, Copy has also produced two full-lengths, crafted the infamous Bone Thugs 'N' Copy and Diva Mixtape Vol. 1 bootlegs, and remixed tracks for Truckasaurus, Hey Willpower, Ratatat, and a bunch of others. Needless to say, he's an apt character to close out the month of Portland coverage.

Thanks for bringing some light on the electronic scene in Portland. It's true we aren't anywhere close to being a mecca for this type of music, but what we do have is some very interesting and eclectic group of individuals that are very talented that deserve the recognition your Magazine has bestowed.

Just listened to this podcast during the afternoon at work, and I have to say I was stunned. It's fresh and full of a sound that was perfect this fall afternoon. Clearly, Portland and I have an aesthetic I never knew existed. Thanks for opening my eyes (and ears)... Excellent mix.
