The Mix: Youth Radio's AllDayPlay Channel
This audio is no longer available.
AllDayPlay.FM, Youth Radio's online radio station, offers eclectic, uniquely curated music for fans of hip-hop, electronic and soul music. This "best of" stream was programmed for NPR.org by AllDayPlay's teenage interns and production assistants. Youth staff came together in a series of editorial meetings to filter and distill music from the wildest corners of the Internet into a collection of songs that represent our favorite musical movements and moments of the last year. From the international sounds of "soul-trap" artists like Kaytranada and Cashmere Cat to the irreverent party music championed by the Bay Area's own HBK gang, this channel covers the full spectrum of the soulful, beat-based music we love.
The AllDayPlay.FM station was created to provide an alternative to commercial radio. With a street-level studio in downtown Oakland, Calif., the project combines an oft-refreshed playlist with 32 weekly mix shows from DJs and musicians. Our roster of more than 100 contributing DJs includes D-Sharp, Zumbi, Vinroc and Davey D, as well as crews like the Wild'n'Krazy Kids, Trill Team 6, the AmazingZooCrew and Sweaterfunk DJs.
Language Advisory: Some of these songs contain profanity.
In the words of one of our hosts, DJ Sake 1, "AllDayPlay is an authentic representation of Bay Area music, culture and taste. In a massively trend-setting region, this is no small feat."
