Few artists can pack 47 tracks into an hour-long mix without it sounding forced and contrived.

Podcast 83: DNAE Beats - There's a Wormhole in My Bathroom

More future blapp is coming out of the Bay Area, this time from S.F.-based producer DNAE Beats.

"Kenji and I have been fortunate to become friends with some very talented folks over the past few years," explains Chen. "There's a personal story behind each track here."

Podcast 80: Meanest Man Contest's Category Killer Selection

Meanest Man Contest might be known for making hip-hop and leftfield electronic music, but when we approached the duo and asked them to curate the next installment of the XLR8R Podcast, they gave us a pleasantly surprising mix that goes above and beyond the word "eclectic."
