    I liked GLK’s September Boilerroom set better than the RA mix. Also MNDSGN and Annhu had killer Boilerroom sets, check em out. And no Kutmah or Illum Sphere on this list?? C’mon.

    Knew that Elijah & Skrilliam’s 3 hour r&b jam needed to be here somewhere. One of my favorite things of 2012

    Maybe that Hot Vs. Cold mix by J-Live should be up here. It’s a straight up hip-hop mix, but it’s follows the same format as true mixtapes that have cutting, scratching, drops, etc. Unless you get to tune into radio shows like Premier’s Live from HeadQCourterz, DJ Eclipse’s show, or Rosenberg (sometimes); real, hour-plus long, uninterrupted hip-hop mixes of “underground” joints–think DJ Chris Crossphader mixtapes from back in the day–are pretty rare these days. I can’t think of anyone else that still does this. And does it well.
