Clash’s DJ Mix series is such a longstanding feature of this website that, sometimes, it’s easy to forget just how magnificent it actually is. (Almost) every week, Clash presents a brand-new, exclusive mix for you, lucky listeners, to wrap their earholes around. And for free, too. Bonus.
The Clash DJ Mix archive is massive – and you can explore some of it here. Amongst the acts delivering relatively recent mixes: Ben Pearce, Last Japan, Carl Craig (yes, the Carl Craig, amazing), and loads more. One day we’ll look back at what we’ve run over the years and fall off our chairs. And then dance, naturally.
But to skip to the best of the best, of the last 12 months, here we’ve collected our very favourite Clash DJ Mixes of 2013. So follow the links and get into the sounds – it’s not like you’re actually working right now, anyway.
