BTR starts off by breakin’ thru to the future on this Back to the Future Day with an appropriate mix in homage to 2015, the films, and the future. Hit new tracks by Vundabar and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin. Plus, electronica with The Blow, Hot Chip, and Electrolightz as well as back-in-time alt throwbacks from The Apples In Stereo, The Futureheads, and a Delorean. Also in the mix, festival news for The Drums as they help kick off festival season in Melbourne Australia. And the band Diehard pines for a Back to the Future IV. Go back in time with DJRePete to start your Wednesday on BTR!
