Keeping in stride with his first mix in the “Infusion” series, Liquid Stranger‘s set from Shambhala Music Festival 2014, which doubles as his “Infusion Mix Vol. 2”, blends together a variety of atmospheric tracks, ranging from deep and minimal dub to rhythmic hip-hop breaks. The Swedish musician (now living in the U.S.) has always exhibited a diverse spread of musical elements throughout his long-standing carerer, whether it be through his production or live DJing. He’s released multiple breaks albums on Interchill Records, as well as putting forth several releases through Rottun Records, Warpath Group, and many other notable record labels.
Although it only clocks in at five minutes, NOISIA‘s new mini mix for BBC Radio 1xtra still manages to exhibit an impressive quantity of ear-shaking tracks. The Netherlands trio is of course keeping up with their signature glitched out crashing sound. A special edition mix for Radio 1’s “D&B Week”, the mix turns out the perfect outlet for NOISIA. It features plenty of the tracks from their latest release, the Purpose EP, as well as plenty of drum & bass classics.
The Colorado funk-buster HeRobust recently made an appearance on Shade 45‘s “Sway In the Morning”. The up and coming glitch-hop technician has proven his unique perspective on funky tracks since day one. His live sets often feature a bombardment of massive dance tunes, exhibiting all sides of electronic music. This latest mix shows an interesting blend of both original production, and some other really awesome- and perhaps unknown- tunes.
French duo The Geek x Vrv are also back with a new mix for us. This one’s kicked back to the maximum though, focusing on instrumental hip-hop and downtempo tracks. The two teamed up with fellow French publication, Chill Music (soundcloud), to deliver this 30 minute mix of lush musical goodness.

To round us out for the week, we have one final- and MASSIVE- mix coming at you guys. This one’s from California DJ and producer M A Z E. It’s pretty straight-forward; non-stop walls of bass and electrifying sound annihilation.
