James Murphy - Red Bull Music Academy DJ Set

james murphy

Last week, James Murphy's DFA Records celebrated its 12th anniversary in Brooklyn with live performances and DJ sets from roster artists and friends. Murphy himself DJ'd to cap off the night, and thanks to Red Bull Music Academy, we've got a recording of his awesome set. It puts his fabulous, diverse music taste (I'm reminded of his listing of his records in LCD Soundsystem's "Losing My Edge") on display, as well as his party-starting skills - any DJ set that ends with Talking Heads' "This Must Be The Place" is cool with us. You should put this one on next time you host a house party, though it might be kinda difficult to pass it off as your own mix. Check it out.
