We here at XLR8R are excited—and not just because we’re finishing up an amazing 2015, with what’s looking to be a great new year just around the corner. No, what’s really got our heart pumping is the anticipation of XLR8R Festival 2016, coming up in Tulum, Mexico on January 6. The lineup for the gathering’s premiere edition is damn near epic, with Blond:ish, Dauwd, Deadbeat, Rebolledo, Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, Clovis, Roam and—last but certainly not least—Mike Shannon and DeWalta all part of the lineup. For our final podcast of the year, we’ve tapped those last two artists, frequent partners on the decks and in the studio (the pair have an album coming out soon on the Indigo Raw label), to collaborate on a mix. And are we ever glad we did, as they’ve come up with a captivating set of tunes that veer between dreamland house, stripped-down jackers and plenty more. “It’s a selection of tracks that showcase the dancefloor side of what we’ve been up to in the studio,” the two inform us. “All of the tracks in this mix are written and produced, or remixed by either Shannon or DeWalta—or by DeWalta & Shannon together. All of this content is still unreleased or forthcoming. We hope you enjoy the sound!” We do, guys, we do—and we’re sure you will as well. Have a great New Year’s Eve…and see you in Tulum!
