Baauer’s mixes have been pretty hit or miss for me as of late. It’s one thing to play a what’s what of trap shit + a spattering of 2 Chainz/Juicy J/Flocka in a live environment, but I generally look for more impressive curatorial abilities in mixes. That’s not to say his past few mixes involved bad mixing or bad songs, they just weren’t the most adventurous affairs. Last night, Baauer hit up Benji B’s BBC Radio 1 show and laid down what might be his best mix yet. A full hour of left-field hip hop and club tunes from across the board. This has everything you look for in a mix: solid mixing, ingenuity and exclusives. Mixing Photek with MellowHype sounds a little bit absurd, but Baauer makes it work. Head over to the BBC website to stream the full mix and salivate over an unreleased Baauer jawn below.
Update: The track below is a collaboration between Baauer and Sleepyhead!
