"In addition to being the home of the BTR Headquarters, New York City is one of the most diverse and influential music cities in the world, and it is only fitting that we include a regional show that showcases some of NYC's best artists," says DJ Maxim, who kicks off the first episode with some punk and indie rock. "I'm really excited about this inaugural playlist, which includes tracks from White Rabbits and The Rapture, a soulful throwback from Sharon Jones [& The Dap-Kings], and even some Bhangra beats from DJ Rekha."
