THUGLI x Mad Decent mix for Mad Decent Block Party

Ugh. In two short years, local boys THUGLI are all grown-up and packing official Mad Decent mixes. The duo played Digital Dreams several weeks ago and have just dropped this killer 33-track tape, essentially a celebration of Block Party growth since its inception in 2008, Mad Decent growth, and electronic music growth in general. I never felt too strongly about Onslaught (2013), but this tag-team of Pat Drastik and Tom Wrecks has my newfound respect and peripheral vision from here on. Put simply, the mix is that fucking good.

Leave it to this duo to select some of the best reworks of the season; highlights include the intro ("It's [soooooooo] You," TastyTreat); the Nadus x RL Grime "Nxwxrk" transition at 4:30; the reset at 15:10 (just before "Hadouken"); the five minutes starting at 21:00 dedicated to Keys N Krates and Grandtheft ("Keep It 100," that hometown glory)... and the downplayed drop at 31:55 in the midst of "Turn It Up."

In case you're wondering, the Mad Decent Block Party tour comes to Toronto August 15th.
