Listen To Caribou’s Award-Winning ‘Essential Mix of The Year’

Having already released Our Love, one of the best indie-electronic crossover albums of the year, Caribou--aka Dan Snaith--and his mix for Radio 1 have been awarded Essential Mix of The Year by the BBC.

Originally airing in October, Caribou’s nearly 40-track mix features artists from across the electronic spectrum including Daft Punk, Armand Van Helden, Les Sins, and more. Caribou also threw in some cuts from his recent LP like Mars, Our Love, and the ever-popular Can't Do Without You. According to Snaith, the diversity of the mix was derived from the producer's DJ sets at the time.

"There’s tracks in here I’ve been playing in my DJ sets for the last little while, there’s some of the music from my new album and there’s sections inspired by playing live with the band. Maybe that’s why the music on this mix is so diverse, but for people who’ve seen me DJ before, that won’t be a surprise."
Caribou's Essential Mix was chosen as the winner by a panel of judges from the electronic music world including: last year's winner Eric Prydz, Pete Tong, B. Traits, Danny Howard, and several members from the dance music media. You can listen to the full mix above and see the tracklist below.

filous Delivers Divine Porter Robinson Remix

17-year-old Austrian producer filous just dropped a heavenly remix of Porter Robinson's (pictured) incredible indie offering, Divinity.

filous has a knack for delivering touching and tranquil remixes, including reworks of Kodaline's High Hopes (3.75MM SoundCloud plays) and RAC's Tear You Down (1.25MM SoundCloud plays), and he's hit gold once again with this ethereal and entrancing new cut. The Vienna native may still be finishing up high school, but it's clear that high-profile artists have noticed his talents--this is an official remix with full support from Porter. Keep your eyes (and ears) on this kid in 2015.

Pick up the remix on iTunes here.
