A-Trak - Best of 2015 Mix

When A-Trak drops a mix, the world listens, and did they ever listen to the tracks he's included in his 2 hour mix for his Beats 1 radio show "Day Off Radio." He's compiled a list of the best tracks from 2015, but not just the biggest and brightest but rather some of his favourites, and he's got good taste!
Beyond the superb song choices, there's the expected yet always unparalleled mixing ability from A-Trak that makes this mix one that will surely get played over and over. And of course A-Trak's always the genre bender, meaning the mix isn't just the best of 2015 in electronic music, or pop music for that matter; it's rife with tracks that you may not have heard before even if you consider yourself highly in tune with this scene or that scene. Not many people are in tune with the world of music as Canadian music royalty, Alain Macklovitch. It's because of tastemakers like A-Trak, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Anna Lunoe and the now departed, Nina Las Vegas (to name but a few), that radio still holds some kind of sparkling magic, drawing in it's listeners and maintaining a relationship of trust, wondering just what these soothsayers will play for us next. I highly recommend checking any and all of them out, there's so much music in the world that will truly change your life. Go out and find it, if you don't have the time, find someone whose ear you trust and hold on tight, the world of music moves ridiculously fast.
