According to The Guardian, the Mexican label/collective NAAFI will soon have a month-long residency on Beats 1 Radio. Other new Beats 1 DJs include Haim, Eric Prydz, Major Lazer and Chance the Rapper. This is apparently part of the service's effort to obey Jimmy Iovine's main tenet: "Don't be boring." "That means donā€™t be blinded by how good this might look on paper," Zane Lowe explained. "Will it work on air? Will they have interesting things to say? Otherwise, it just turns into a mess and looks like a fancy list and not much else."

For a quick primer on NAAFI, revisit Primata 2, a mixtape of "Latin electronic hits for the dancefloor."
