This mix is all about electro-rock! Cajuan, Digitalism, Hot Chip, Primes, Depeche Mode, Klaxons, Nitzer Ebb, Boys Noize. I have a bunch of really fresh tracks these days. I recently recieved a pre-release copy of "Facades and Pink Forms," the new album by Vancouver's electronic punk champs, Primes and I couldn't resist putting three tracks from it in this mix. Thanks guys, awesome stuff! "Facades and Pink Forms" will be released soon on the Washington DC label Postfact Records. I also have a remix of the amazing new Digitalism track "Pogo" which is sure to be a summer hit. The Thomas Bangaltier remix of Dj Mehdi's "Signatune" is another insanely good track. It's the kind of song that makes you walk a bit taller as you're treading down the block. The video is great too, and you can check it out here.

This mix was a tricky one to put together, but well worth it. These are some of my favorite rock inspired tracks from the past year or so (and the past couple of weeks), with epic interludes scattered here and there to space out your head.
