Arguably one of the most influential modern era DJs, A-Trak has dropped a mix that will go down as one of the best of the year, offering a tribute to the bloghaus era; around the 2007-09 period, when distorted electro, fidget house and indie-dance ruled. The mix was recorded for his Beats 1 radio show, and has already set the internet alight with artists, producers, fans and general music lovers dealing with ALL THE FEELS from one of the finest eras of dance music. A-trak shared a few words on his Facebook page:
I've been wanting to record a BLOGHAUS mix for a while now... Some of my favorite songs from the era when electronic music was indie, dirty, distorted and sweaty. A time of low bit-rate mp3s, all-over-print hoodies and MySpace top 8's. We're talking about 2007-2009, roughly. That scene laid the foundation for the explosion of dance music that followed. Those were also the formative years of Fool's Gold Records. Anyway, I got home from the studio the other night and recorded this thing. Had so much fun doing it.
Recorded a mix of some of my favorite tracks from the era of BLOG HAUS, INDIE DANCE, DISTORTED ELECTRO, FIDGET roughly 2007-2009. If you ever wore a neon-colored all-over hoodie you can probably relate...
A-trak hits the spot and brings all the 2007-09 feels featuring artists like Justice, Boys Noize, Crookers, The Klaxons, Simian Mobile Disco, Soulwax, Erol Alkan and MANY MANY MANY MORE! - If there is one mix you are going to listen to today, make it this - if you're unfamiliar with all of this, get acquainted asap.
