I guess this is a week for me listening to local DJ's get down on mix tapes. I know they aren't mix tapes anymore, but that's how I think of them. There used to be little kiosks in Manhattan that us bridge and tunnel kids would flock to in order to purchase cassettes from DJ Clue?, Tony Touch
, et al. Now we have the interweb and Miami transplant Dan "Doormouse" Martin

This is apparently an official Addict Records release in free digital download form. It dropped in Nov. but I cannot get it out of my faux-pod no matter how hard I try. It moves effortlessly between 2 Live Crew, Kanye, Royksopp, Trick Daddy, DJ Funk, Timbaland, Akon, Daft Punk, Justin Timberlake and dozens of others. Doormouse is a pro and he flexes his musical muscles on some extremely off the chain remixing and seemingly effortless blending. Check it out!
