Podcast 20: Starkey

Philadelphia-based PJ "Starkey" Geissinger is no stranger to club action. This hardworking producer/DJ has already earned the title of Mid-Atlantic and North American Laptop Battle Champion, and has recorded for an array of labels from Slit Jockey to Trouble & Bass and Peace-Off. For this installment of the XLR8R Podcast DJ Mix Series, the grime-influenced veteran churns out over 30 tracks of club-shattering bass anthems.


Podcast 19: French Hip-Hop

While there's still a handful of Americans that may snicker at the idea of French rap, the very same haters may not have heard Paris-born, Lausanne, Switzerland-based Thomas' Yo La La ! podcast, which features MCs and producers from the world's second biggest global hip-hop market. The monthly mixes include talent from all facets of the French game–from rap de rue (street rap) to alternative rap (electro-infused hip-hop) to commercial rap, both vinatge and brand new.

Podcast 18: Crookers

Alongside acts like The Bloody Beetroots and the Dubsided crew, Milan’s Crookers have entered the XLR8R Podcast Exclusive Mix Series in true electro-club fashion. Members DJ Phra and Bot fuse together raw B-more percussion and scratchy French touch synths for their infectious edits and remixes. Featuring a broad palate of new dancefloor killers from artists like Radioclit, Aaron LaCrate, Edu K, and Chemical Brothers, this exclusive mix will have new-schoolers salivating for days.


Podcast 17: The Glitch Mob

For this very special edition of the XLR8R Podcast Exclusive Mix Series, we wrangled up Los Angeles-based Glitch Mob for a glimpse at the new world of electro-infused hip-hop. Grabbing unreleased and forthcoming tracks from the likes of edIT, Boreta, Ooah, and Kraddy, these mobsters have turned out an intricately woven, chopped-up glitch haven on this bangin' mix.


Podcast 16: Magnum 38

Oliver “Magnum 38” Greschke is punk. The Berlin-based web programmer by day, gnarly producer by night, is so punk that he went from Germany’s drum and bass hotbed into the open arms of some of the most chopped-up, evil electro-noise imaginable. Recording for T. Raumschmiere’s Shitkatapult imprint, this programmer may not be as celebrated as his labelboss (yet), but with compositions this deadly, he’s well on his way. Read more » 

Podcast 15: Mad Decent

For the newest installment of our Exclusive Mix Series we wrangled up Mad Decent's Paul Devro to mash up some of the Diplo-owned label's choicest cuts, in addition to a crop of contemporary party staples. Like Diplo, Devro mashes up tracks from every angle of the club spectrum. Featuring tracks from Radioclit, Bonde Do Role, Santogold, and Garth Brooks, this is an exclusive treat from the party gods.


Podcast 14: Kitty-Yo

Berlin-based label Kitty-Yo's foray into electronic music began in 1994, with a few 7" singles put out by founder Raik Hoelzel. Many releases, parties, and artists (Christian Mayer, Couch, To Rococo Rot, and Nina Hynes, to name a few) later, the label has made a name for itself among electronic music imprints. 2007 sees Kitty-Yo going completely digital too.

For the latest edition of the XLR8R Podcast DJ Mix Series, Peter Prautzsch (a.k.a. Palac) takes some fresh cuts from the label and mixes them into 50 minutes of techno, IDM, and minimal beats for the ears. Nice.
