DB3



The world's most punctual DJ comes prepared for the third week of BLURRINGradio with his third straight mixtape. DB is a man of his word; and thanks be to the heavens for it--without it, we wouldn't know what to listen to next. This week he plays tunes by such forward-thinking visionaries as Kraftwerk, Can and The Clash alongside such contemporary back-to-the-basics heralds as The National, Kasabian and The Black Keys. And not a moment too soon he mixes it up with the likes of James Blake, Gotan Project, Graffiti6, Hot Chip, Jónsi, Joy Orbison, M83, Neon Indian, Penguin Prison, Radiohead and Gil Scott-Heron. Rounding out the mix are jj, the latest sensation from Göteborg, contemporary pop music's golden womb, and a Cure cover by by Ror-Shak, DB's collaboration with Stakka, featuring Chantal Claret.



Great thanks are due the lovely labels behind these brilliant artists: 4AD, Astralwerks, Capitol, CBS, Columbia, EMI, Hemlock, Hot Flush, KOCH, Lefse, Neon Gold, Nonesuch, RCA, Sincerely Yours, United Artists, Virgin and XL.

RADIO SERIES

As a kid in London, DB used to fall asleep at night with a transistor radio hidden under his pillow. He has been addicted to hearing new music ever since. Here, he brings that music to you. 

This is not a music show that's restricted to a particular genre, or even a specific decade, although it has an emphasis on indie rock with electronic elements or electronic music that's not simply for the dance floor. It's a 90-minute mixtape-style show that is as musically open-minded as the musical landscape is wide.
