Buku Fest Best Mixed Before Serving


With this weekend marking the inaugural edition of the Buku Music and Art Project, it might still be difficult for the mind to grasp at what to expect. To ease the flailing - at least on the ears - local DJ Shanook, who will have a set at the fest, put together a mix of some of the artists playing this weekend at Mardi Gras World, including Wiz Khalifa, Yelle and, since electronic music is that most meta of genres, headliner Skrillex remixing headliner Avicii. Click through to listen, and don't forget about NoDef's full Buku preview, which can be found here.
