Influencer Chart 13: The Flexican

The Flexican is an off-the-wall name that is being heard more and more these days.  The young dutch DJ exploded onto the party scene when Diplo picked up his old track “Bumaye” and collaborated on a suped up version of it with Busy Signal and Major Lazer.  The track has been a smash hit with the music video garnering 1 million views in less than a week and peak time support from some of the heaviest hitters in the game.   Flexican mashes up an eclectic mix of styles and influences from around the world to create a sound that is all his own.  He's  the perfect embodiment of the new internet producer and his Influencer chart  may be our favorite yet. Ranging from hip hop, to deep house, and back to moombahton the chart showcases his excellent and wide ranging taste in all genres of music.  Listen to the chart below and don't forget to check out Flexican's commentary on his song selection after the jump.
