Listen: James Murphy DJs a 50 Minute Mix


James Murphy of LCD Soundsytem, once known as Death from Above for his top-heavy DJing set-up, is back to his roots after last year’s break-up for LCD Soundsystem.

The Boiler Room, a web site devoted to capturing the underground DJ scene, recorded a kickass 50 minute set from Murphy, which you can watch on their site or stream the entire mix with the widget below. The set itself is fairly tame, but you can witness how nimbly Murphy navigates the turntables—the poise! The presence!

Here is an unconfirmed setlist courtesy of a commenter.
1. 0:00 Begin—Elate
2. 5:00 Floorplan – We Magnify His Name
3. 8:00 Young Marco Darwin – In Bhia
