Recommends: Chris Stracey (Bag Raiders) Best of 2013

"2013 has been a year of working on a new album. A year of living in Los Angeles, taking a lot of hikes, eating a lot of kale and getting in tune with a lot of vibrations.

Watch: Bag Raiders Beach Jams

The Bag Raiders boys, procrastinating from recording their new album in the studio, jumped into the YouTube black hole and came back out holding a playlist of some top-shelf beach jams.

Bag Raiders will be taking control of the decks on the Saturday night alongside 2manydjs, James Murphy and more. Full line-up here.
