#TBT DJ Ayres – Return of the Mash

#TBT this week takes us back to fall of 2010 as Ayres opened up his “dance pop” crate and cranked out this super fresh mix for Urban Outfitters. Return of the Mash is a slick representation of the electronic music experimentations that took place with pop music towards the end of the last decade which have ultimately became a huge influence on the Billboard charts of the last five years. Don’t necessarily believe me? Take a listen for yourself below and hear the early ideas from so many artists and producers that are dominating charts, playlists and festival lineups in 2015. Shouts to Mike 2600 for this killer artwork as well.
