Holiday Throwdown


So here is the late show from Tuesday. I was once again foiled by Pratt Radio’s inherent disorganization, so this is another laptop mix sans proper equipment. I wanted to show respect to my choice of the year’s best tracks, but I ended up including some recent cuts just to keep things fresh for any regular listeners. 2010 was the year for Moombathon. It was also the year for Uproot Andy, who destroyed things with his remixes of two of the years biggest songs – making them EVEN BIGGER. His Abrazame edit by way of Gyptian’s Hold Yuh was the tune this summer, as was the original which was seemingly always playing out of passing cars in Brooklyn. We had the return of favorites like FlyLo and Four Tet with career defining new albums, both of which are featured here. Cumbia, Funky and other neo-non-western styles continued to rule the airwaves, and traditional dubstep died a slow and predictably hardcore death. But it’s the end of the year, and the start of 2011, which who knows what’s even going on then, I don’t look that far ahead on my calendars and neither should you. So check out the Okapi finale, last one for the semester as WPIR goes on holiday. Cheers, everyone!
