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.

Being the newest writer at GDD it is an honor to be able to bring you my top tracks at the moment, as well as pair up with an artist like JeromeLOL for my first ever Dirt segment. I’ve been quite the festival creature lately, and being blasted by so much electro and prog house has my ears exhausted. With that being said, these picks from myself are more or less the tunes I bump on the way there/home in order to create some sense of balance. Big thanks to JeromeLoL for taking the time to collab and be sure to check out his most recent mix, perfect for cruising around in your Subaru.
