McQ's Best of 2009 - Recommended Mixes Volume 9 - Viva La Mainstream

Last year's cutting-edge hero often becomes this year's beloved establishment icon.

This volume focuses on one-time groundbreaking artists still in the game, forgotten underground acts given new life through retrospectives (The Vaselines), and some younger lesser known artists in whom I see major crossover potential.

Focused exclusively on male-led acts, it's also one of the harder rocking mixes in the 2009 collection.  Listen/Subscribe on Spotify!
