Running for the bus with bdrmm’s Ryan Smith – listen to our latest mix

The fourth of our series of Running Shoes mixes is by bdrmm frontman Ryan Smith. It includes five-ish minutes of more ambient warm-up and warm-down sounds, with 30 minutes in the middle for running to. Or you can just enjoy the whole thing while seated. No pressure.

For Ryan, it is less the soundtrack to a 5k plod, and more of a late-night sprint for the bus. “I used to work a lot of night shifts, so I’d find myself having to run for the bus afterwards if I wanted to go on nights out,” he explains. “This is a collection of tracks I’d usually find myself listening to – to hype me up for the night, as well as accompanying my sprint.”

The full tracklisting (with added Simpsons) is:

Floating Points ‘Argenté’
Washed Out ‘Hard To Say Goodbye’
Daniel Avery ‘Drone Logic’
Leon Vynehall ‘Kiburu’s’
Bonobo ‘Linked’
Four Tet ‘Kool FM’
Lauer ‘Gammelan’
Portishead ‘The Rip’
