Today I have a Guest Mix from Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon of Night Drive! The self described “future wave” duo have really become a favorite of mine over the last year or so, and I’m looking forward to seeing them play the Red Bull Sound Select showcase tonight with Roger Sellers and Robert DeLong.
Full disclosure: I work for Red Bull Sound Select.
