Trackademicks | Cherry 2k

Surfing through a sea of incoming tracks on Soundcloud and just came up on some amazingly fresh instrumentals from Bay Area Honor Roll fam’s Trackademicks. Beware - this is some sexy, grown people music! Nice way to close out the year!

Enjoy the continuous play of 4 tracks below and here and cop the separate tracks here

Mint Collective’s Most Epic of 2011

We’ve been sifting through 2012’s stand-out music, events, mixes and much more and wanted to call out some amazing contributions we’ve seen both on and offline.

It’s been an epic year of infinite blessings shared worldwide and it’s most definitely our pleasure [and mission] to share with you some of the things we find. We appreciate the support from all of you wholeheartedly and wish you health, happiness and creative energy in 2012.

Much Love, Minty Fam
