Plastic Platform C23: 100% Silk
For the uninitiated, 100% Silk are a good-time LA-based label, who specialise in cutting-edge four-to-the-floor glittery grooves encased in a hedonistic sponge. That's right, this mix is one most definitely designed to get out of your chair and wave some body parts around to, these are the people that (thankfully) alerted the world to the presence of Ital and Fort Romeau afterall.
Amanda Brown is the brains behind the dance-floor operation, with the label an offshoot of significant underground entity Not Not Fun - and in this mix you'll be treated to over 40 minutes of sumptuous disco/house grooves, some "SILKy 2012 bangers and mashers for yr earholes". The label toured Europe over the summer and it was all caught on film via a documentary, which is currently being edited. But for now, get our 23rd Plastic Platform mix inside of you.

Welcome to the third edition of 'Plastic Platform', our new mix series for 2012. So far we've had mixes from STRFKR, and Keep Shelly In Athens, both of which were amazing. This week's edition is brought to us by J£ZUS MILLION - a young man from the States who we're pretty obsessed with here at The 405. Once you've given his mix a listen, head over to his Soundcloud page and listen to all his jams. You won't be disappointed. [read more]
Last week we brought you the first edition in our new mix series Plastic Platform, which featured a killer mix curated by STRFKR. This weeks edition is from the wonderful Keep Shelly In Athens.

Have a listen, and make sure you read their rather amazing mix description. [read more]
The 'Plastic Platform' series continues this week with a bone crushing 53 minute mix from Faws. The one thing we know about Faws is that he's from Dublin. Actually, we know two things: he's from Dublin and he released a pretty wonderful EP late last year called Antonym, which we throughly recommend you check out. [read more]
We're now 6 mixes into our 'Plastic Platform' series, and today we bring you one of the best. In fact, we actually think this is one of the best things we've heard all year, but we expected nothing less from this hour long Sun Araw vs. Heatwave mix. It really is quite incredible. [read more]
