Best of 2013 Mixtape by Jarrod Dean / Don’t Look


Earlier this year we introduced Jarrod Dean aka Don’t Look, an intriguing 17 yr-old DJ and Producer who makes, mixes and manipulates music and sound into unsettling but thoroughly engaging DJ sets, soundscapes, EPs and mixtapes.


For New Year’s Eve 2013, Jarrod has made a brand new playlist for us, this time serving up a pleasingly industrial alternative to the usual end of year countdown ‘hit’ records. Enjoy.


2013 is quickly drawing to a close, and blogs, magazines and critics from every corner of the internet are posting their album of the year rankings. As is the annual tradition. Lists are dull and grating, especially when the majority contain the same undeserved Vampire Weekend and Arcade Fire albums, so I thought I’d celebrate this years’ musical accomplishments with a mix instead. Through Noise, Jungle, Grime, Techno and several other mishmashes of genres, here are 20 of my favourite tunes from the last 12 months presented in a half-hour set. – Jarrod Dean / Don’t Look
