Dan Snaitch, aka Caribou, the Canadian indie / folk / electronic artist who turns out music for over 15 artist has delivered something no one has ever attempted to do. A 1,000 song playlist. And that is not an exaggeration; he has compiled 1000 songs from past and present, with no rules or guidlines, other than being a good song. Ranging from rap to classic rock to all varieties of indie and alternative rock, it will be impossible to be bored listening to this .
Here is his words about the playlist:
The last few years of my life have been incredible, thanks in large part to all of you – so I've been thinking of how to say thank you.
As you can imagine, music has been a central love of my life since I was a teenager and over the years I've been introduced to a lot that has stayed with me. I've collected the majority of that music here – and I thought sharing it with you seemed like one way I could say thanks.
I'm sure some things are under-represented or over-represented, but roughly speaking this is a musical history of my life. Of course a lot of this music has come to me through my friends – thank you to Koushik, Kieran, Jeremy, Gary, Brandon, Jason, Sam, Ketan, Ryan, Toby and many others…
Also, please share music with me that you think I would like but is not included here, in the hope this becomes a dialogue rather than a monologue.
I suggest you listen to this on shuffle as I made no attempt to sequence these tracks – I just entered them as I browsed along the shelves in my record collection. If you see dead links or duplicate songs please tweet me @caribouband.
I hope you find something to enjoy here. Thanks,
The YouTube embed below only will load 200 songs (come on Youtube), so click the link to listen to the entire 1000 tracks. He also insists that you shuffle them as he he didn't place the 1000 tracks in any specific order.
Pretty Lights is one of the most unique and exciting electronic artists around, pushing the boundaries of how the music industry works, known for freely distributing every single album / song he has every released. Well today he continues his out of the box habits by releasing not 1, but 10 songs completely for free, through someone who matters most to him, one of his fans.
While attending this year's annual Jam Cruise, which just commenced it's 13th year (for those unaware it's a long running cruise festival featuring some of the best jam acts around, and is actually the cruise that inspired Hard's Holy Ship and Mad Decent's Boat Party), Pretty Lights was catching up with some of his fans by the zen pool, one in paritcular a fan by the name of Cassie Blochinger. Together they came up with the idea that "(the fans) should be the ones sharing his music. We're the ones that help expand the knowledge of Pretty Lights and show the world just how we do."
Pretty Lights then uploaded 10 tracks, mostly new, some old, directly from his laptop to her harddrive. She has since uploaded the songs for everyone to hear, exactly what Derek (Pretty Lights) wanted.
Some of the tracks sound complete while others are simply breaks, but they all carry out that signature soulful Pretty Lights sound.
You can download all the tracks through the mediafire playlist here. We hope you are thankful for this unexepcted present, we sure are! Enjoy!

Classifying Flume as one of dance music's elite producers is accurately fitting since the Australian native’s infectious creations place him in a league of his very own. Dozens of producers have drawn influence from Flume's signature sound and often mimic his likeness, but nothing quite compares to the real deal like his stunning remix of Lorde’s "Tennis Court” or genre-defining debut album.
Flume has spent a good portion of this year in the studio on top of performing across the world, and during a visit to Tokyo, Japan he was inspired to create a special Quest Mix that was premiered on BBC radio DJ Annie Nightingale’s program. The mix encompasses everything Flume is currently vibing with from his colleagues. While Flume wasn’t able to include some of his new originals he's been hyping, him and Emoh Instead's project What So Not did include a brand new edit of RL Grime's "Core". All you have to do for now is sit back and relax as Flume takes you on a one hour long journey of some of the coolest sounds out right now. Enjoy!
Trap king RL Grime continues his annual tradition delivering his highly anticipated Halloween mix, introduced by the famed Goosebumps author RL Stine. Today's mix is the third installment in the series and definitely his best yet. RL Grime is days away from premiering his debut studio album Core yet still managed to assemble and release this highly anticipated compilation.

The unveiling of unreleased Cashmere Cat, TNGHT, and some of his own produced collaborations like an amazing new unreleased song with Action Bronson to start the mix off right.

This year, Burning Man took place August 25th through September 1st at Black Rock City, located in Nevada's Black Rock Desert. Burning Man is much more than a music festival; it's a gathering of over 60,000 "Burners" for 8 wild days. Although I have never been, Burning Man is a very community-based event in which everything is created by attendees with a leave no trace policy. Among other creations, towering wooden sculptures are built and then burned in a massive celebration.
Tycho's sunrise set time of 5:40 am sounds like a perfect time slot due to his relaxing, laid-back sound. This DJ set lasting over 2 hours delivers a diverse combination of originals, remixes, and an array of tunes from other artists. Tycho's ambient style is apparent in this mix as the selection of mostly mellow house tracks reflect the musical style Tycho offers.
