Erol Alkan is playing LA's HARD festival in a few weeks (deets here) alongside Crystal Castles, Soulwax, Major Lazer and others, and he made this hour-long mindfuck mix to mark the occasion, featuring Paul Chambers, Tiga, Gonzales, Soulwax and Boys Noize. Klaxons wanted to big the big man up so you can download it at the end.
This is what Jamie Reynolds had to say about the revered DJ:
“I last saw Erol Alkan in Croatia at a festival a month ago. It was fun, thousands of Croatians going nuts while Erol played for hours. He’s a real DJ trooper that one, doing his Erol monster sets where he plays for ages and just keeps going.”
