Mixtape: DFA Radiomix Gabriel Andruzzi

Dance-punk rockers The Rapture celebrate their upcoming release and return to DFA with an hour-plus Radiomix from band member Gabriel Andruzzi. A hardcore start with Bad Brains quickly drops into a hour-plus set of percussion-heavy and downtempo electro-house. A great mix for the long weekend.
