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,

It feels like yesterday I witnessed Flosstradamus throwing down a set so hard they were kicked off the decks by the police and B⚠NNED from performing in the Windy City for a few months. Since then, Flosstradamus have transformed into heavy hitters within the music community by pioneering the Trap n Bass movement along with delivering one hell of a live show for fans. We can rifle off the massive tracks and remixes the duo have created over the years, but their breakout B⚠NNED & B⚠NNED II mixtapes have the internet going nuts after each release and the same can be said about their latest installment. B⚠NNED 3D goes in swinging straight haymakers towards your eardrums as tracks from LOUDPVCK, RL Grime B2B Baauer, Mr Carmack, and Riff Raff are mixed in with unreleased Flosstradamus collaborations with Waka Flocka and DJ Snake respectively. The mixtape comes via a signature “Aromatherapy Herbs” approved vaporizer we picked up from Flosstradamus at their sold out IRL show in Chicago. The vaporizer also doubles as a convenient 4 GB hard drive to take file and dab sharing on the go. Buckle up baby and stream B⚠NNED 3D below. Enjoy!

Coming off one of the biggest breakouts we’ve ever seen from an artist, Chance The Rapper is the talk of the town once again due to the release a video dedicated to his fans. The Acid Rap mixtape paved the way for future stardom early this year as Chance unveiled a new style of freestyle flow he trademarked as “acid-rap”. As his travels across the US on the Social Experiment tour come to a close, Chance shares a visual documentary showcasing life on tour. This is what Chance had to say about this very special release:
With little budget, experience or time for preparation, the team and I put together this #SocialExperiment Tour 2013. My first Tour. 43 shows. 18 person crew. 4 piece band. 1 Tour bus. 1 raw ass RV. This video represents positivity, love, friendship, musicianship, support and a whole lot of hard work. Big thanks and a Merry Xmas to every single person that made this possible, and everyone else who supported me like crazy this year.
PS: SOCIAL EXPERIMENT COMING SOON
