Saturday night here on Radio Milwaukee I host XFADER. It’s an hour of new electronic and computer based music mixed by yours truly.
In my never ending quest to find cool new tracks, I often come across great remixes of songs you’ve heard here on 88NINE, and now I’m going to share them with you on the XFADER remix of the week.
