Breakfast Tacos and Tim Gunter Are Austin’s Only Redeeming Features

Stream his NORTHMIX here.

Austin, Texas is a poorly conceived, hipster city in denial where barbecue is overpriced, native Republicans insult you for being from anywhere but the USA, espresso is wood-fired for no apparent reason, and cabs only exist on a conceptual level. VICE wrote about why Austin is the worst city ever back in June, but I did find one redeeming feature during my last visit: breakfast tacos (pictured below). Fast forward several months and I've found one and only one additional reason to like Austin.

Tim Gunter is a 24-year old hip-hop fan whose first introduction to electronic music was Daft Punk's Homework album. He won the 2013 Red Bull Thre3style U Championship and his approach to bass music would make even the Red Rocks blush. If this were BroBible or Total Frat Move I would tell you to listen to this mix while you were pre-drinking or playing beer pong, but that saying is so cliché it should come with nine roses and an 'I Choo Choo Choose You' Valentine's Day card. This mix will make you want to hot-wire a Toyota Hilux and drive into the sunset. It will be the soundtrack to the video you took of your cat skateboarding, and it will for sure be playing if you decide to live action role-play a few scenes from Adventure Time.
