“Animal” starts off debuting grammy winner Sirah. Her latest single details failed relationships and broken hearts. It’s been a minute since I’ve included some nu-disco, so when I heard Darius’ remix of “Give You Up” I had to include it—very chill, something to listen to while staring at a sunset. What mix is complete without Ciara in some form? Tokyo’s Cleindl samples the queen in his latest tune. Most known for his Moombahton works Dillon Francis recently took a different route. His Indie/Dance track is perfect for picking yourself up from a broken heart. Grab your dancing-shoes for these next four House remixes—bass for days! SWVZY “slows” the Trap before Missy Elliott kills it with Korea’s G-Dragon on “Niliria.”

Summer's over. These selections are my attempt at holding onto it, before the nights get long and the Bay turns dark and windy. This first track is an apt opener (and title) for the mix if you know me at all. Love me some smooth French liquid beats. Lindsay Lowend returns with his trademark video game sound. Next up is Symbols' We Sink with an Andrea-inspired track that also features the (also French!) producer. After a sexy Chris Brown interlude I stacked up a few hip hop tracks, including Stwo who is one of my favorite dudes (from guess where) right now. I love Odesza's crunchy, Pacific NW sound. I was in Seattle last week so it felt appropriate. SF's Kastle does a remix of everyone's favorite Drake song, and I close with a back room banger. ← See what I did there?
A few years ago we started trading mixtapes as a fun way to share new (or old) songs that we thought our brother-from-another-mother (or sister-from-another-mister) might enjoy. It began with a simple set of parameters — 10 tracks and a title — and quickly* became this little site where we can share with the world the mixtapes we've shared with each other.
* This site was completed in under 24 hours on a chilly, winter evening warmed by the glows of our computers.
