“Bayonet” kicks off with a re-work of one of my favorite songs of all time: Aaliyah’s “One in a Million.” While remaining somewhat true to the original, Spaveech strips down Porter Robinson’s latest single. Major Lazer and Pharrell kill it “Aerosol Can.” We get another dose of ‘90s magic with Wuki’s House remix of “Shake” by Mariah Carey. There’s an innocence and honesty about Branchez’s “Wet” remix that I love. Get deeeeeep with My Nu Leng before we pick it up with ‘Knux All-Stars ‘Hoodboi and Trippy Turtle’s “Big Sean” remix. We stick to Trap and Jersey’ vibes with Chiefs and a remix of Rihanna before closing with Skrillex’s unique R&B/D&B tune.

There's something uneasy but at the same time harmonious and weird about A.G. Cook's vaporwave opener, which leads into my favorite car-driving jam by Weep. Lush whistles and hums accompanied those familar lovely snare rolls. Beauty. Really looking forward to Tink's year, I heard she's Timbaland's next big project. I've got an uncloseted love for that Chicago-bop hip-hop/dance sound, thus Sicko Mobb. Next, Diplo adds some grime to Grizzly Bear. Carling Ruse is a new fave producer of the sexiest R&B remixes I've heard in a while. Durkin remixes BOY/FRIEND and a genre-crossing R&B/Disco/Trap sound emerges. Discovered Romby today and you can really hear that Aussie club influence although he's a Texan. Different Sleep turning us down a bit to end on an M83 remix you can't help but smile to.
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.
