Do you want to listen to a 2-hour DJ mix by Thom Yorke and Nigel Goodrich (of Radiohead and Atoms for Peace)? Of course you do.

Kind of? Thom Yorke's boiler room DJ set was atrocious and I've been shell-shocked ever since.

Since folks in here might be interested, here's a recent podcast by Dave Harrington of Darkside that's also quite good.

Often the 'Office Charts' from Dead Air Space are very good too.

Speaking for me, I care about them when they get some outside comment -by someone on MetaFilter, by Pitchfork, get featured as RA's mix of the day or on their list of top 30 compilations for 2013, or something else- or are by an artist that I know (Four Tet). This was true before the web too, I suppose, but certainly the ubiquity of podcasts dedicated to mixes has made the world feel more saturated than ever. The real question is whether or not a mix series like Fabriclive, DJ-Kicks, or Balance matter anymore. That's a harder question. As someone who both likes the curatorial imprimatur of a label and spending money on dumb things, I'd say yes - but that's me, and I still purchase precious few mix CDs.

mary8nne: DJ mixes are so passe. - seriously does anyone care about them anymore?

Albums are so last decade. Does anyone buy albums anymore? And radio stations, aren't those all dead, too? Isn't the individual song the only stable format these days?

Music is made, shared and presented in various ways. As Going To Maine noted upthread, it can feel like the internet has reached saturation for mixes (or podcasts, mixtapes, whatnot), but the mixer can still lend something to the mix that makes it more than a sequence of good songs. A good mixer, and a good mix, take you on a journey of sorts, sometimes covering paths you already know, other times showing you wholly new worlds. And if you're lucky, you can see new views on the same old paths, by hearing a song paired up in a creative way, adeptly mixed live into other sounds and songs. Because of that, you can't even judge a mix by its tracklist. Will the host play the whole song, or only sample the bridge? Or find some funky nugget that you ignored because the lyrics always get the main attention in the track?

You'll find that certain DJs or mixers (for those who don't jockey discs, but produce their magic in the controllable "studio" setting) are worth following, but often it's easier to let other more dedicated fans sift through the linear years of music that are presented in new mixes every day.

I'm only 20 minutes into this mix, and good damn is it fun! Thanks for sharing this. They even do a good job mixing in that damned Essential Mix watermark at about 18 minutes in!

I've listened to this a couple of times and it's pretty good. I like the electro/glitchy parts best. I confess the Retarded Fren rap at the start put me off but most of the music isn't like that at all.
