We asked our multi-talented homie, Brainbheats (producer/pianist/composer/member of our favorite new band The Pass) to put together a killer mix for Mixcloud's first birthday. Here is what he had to say about his mix: "The approach I took was half driving mix tape, half DJ set. I feel like driving music and a good DJ set have many of the same qualities. I picked music that you could just as easily dance to or listen to, and varied enough to keep things interesting from song to song. The songs that I picked also fall into that category of songs I want everyone else to hear. Finally, I wanted to keep it continuous like a DJ set, and in that sense, I let the playlist develop organically by having the flow of the set dictate what came next." Listen to the mix in the player above; read on for the full tracklist and MP3.
