The Anticon Podcast feat. Jel, Sole , Alias etc. !!!

New at the XLR8R Podcast DJ Mix Series: anticon.

For the cold months of winter we warmed you with mix after mix of upbeat techno o­n the XLR8R Podcast DJ Mix Series. Now that spring is upon us and the rain is falling, we turn towards the slower, melancholic strains arriving these days from Bay Area label/collective anticon.

The 17 tracks here reflect the scope of the label’s catalog. In just an hour, the mix traverses ambient minor chords that bring tears to the eyes, hip-hop steeped in crisp beats and cogent lyrics, and a noisy traffic jam of sounds indecipherable from o­ne another. Partially paralyzed keyboard player Dax Pierson (13 & God, Subtle) joins these elements into o­ne cohesive piece with impressive ease. Hear his mix now, exclusively at the XLR8R Podcast DJ Mix Series.

anticon?s Dax Pierson shows off the label?s incredible versatility o­n the latest mix for XLR8R?s monthly podcast. Includes tracks from Jel, Alias, Sage Francis, Thee More Shallows, SJ Esau, Bracken, and more.
