With previous releases on Skrillex’s Nest label, and a stand out remix of Adam F & Cory Enemy’s “When It Comes To You,” Los Angeles’ emerging producer/DJ, Rags, continues to show great promise with his tasteful brand of bass music that was born out of hip-hop, trap, and club influences. Today, he’s coming through with this week’s GDD™ Guest Mix that he’s dubbed, “I’ll Be With You Till The Lights Turn On.” Rags keeps the energy up and the track selection diverse as he takes listeners on a bass-filled ride through custom edits/mashups, and tracks from the likes of Mr. Carmack, Rustie, Club Cheval, Giraffage, Mr. Oizo, and even The Beatles as the mix winds down and the lights turn on. Listen/download below and check the tracklist after the jump.
GDD has teamed up with Healthgoth.com to bring you a definitive soundtrack for your workouts. We’ve enlisted some of our favorite DJs and producers to make mixes for you to blast in your headphones to help drown out the Top 40 and help you finish that last rep.
