FLUXBLOG 2011 SURVEY MIX


This ten-disc, 183-song mix is a survey of some of the best and most notable music from 2011. It covers a wide range of artists and genres, and I think it’s as comprehensive as it possibly can be while focusing on my personal favorites and omitting stuff I either don’t care about or outright hate. I think you’ll find that this serves as both a helpful guide to some of the year’s most exciting music and a surprisingly listenable series of mixes. Discover new music, rethink familiar acts, jam out to nearly 13 hours of music. If you enjoy this, please do pass it on.

If you’re reallllly behind on music, I should point out that the 2010 survey is still available. If you’d like to stream the set – minus about 30 of the songs – you can do so on either Spotify (thanks Sarah!) or Rdio (thanks Diana!)
