BBC Radio 1 host Annie Mac is a well-respected female DJ -- a real rarity in the dude-dominated halls of clubland. Not that there aren't great lady DJs out there, but people always seem to assume that a woman's success is somehow linked to her looks. (Sample misconception: "She's hot, so there's no way she's any good.") But Mac has repeatedly proven herself, shutting up the naysayers with her stellar work behind the decks while also avoiding the pitfalls of flash-in-the-pan trends.
Her lastest mix, Annie Mac Presents Sunshine Players 2010, keeps things light, pushing a party-ready soundtrack for these late days of summer. Snag Sunshine Players after the jump.
Scattering touches of electro-house, dubstep, and grime all across the landscape, Mac never allows a single genre to dictate the direction of the compilation. Keeping the energy high, she's always in total control. Expect the same this Thursday when Ms. Mac enters the Electric Pickle with a talented all-male support team of local DJs, including Danny Daze, Gigamesh, Pirate Stereo, Damaged Goods, and Troy Kurtz.
