"You can’t guess the future of music based on the past," Jace Clayton told The FADER in early August. "It doesn’t work that way." The mixes of Clayton, who spins under the moniker DJ Rupture, also don't work that way: they're dense and expansive sonic gumbos, each song an unexpected, head-nodding surprise.


On the occasion of Clayton's newly published book, Uproot: Travels in 21st-Century Music and Digital Culture — which traverses disparate international locales and serves as a "travelogue that’s about living music cultures" — we're premiering a new mix by DJ Rupture on The FADER today.

"Writing is such a strange activity. You sit at your desk for weeks, months on end," he wrote via email. "After all that I needed to dance around and make a summer mix." Listen below.
