I hope everyone had a good 2010.

I made a goal to make a mixtape for every season when I made my first (subpar) mixtape.  I needed one more for winter.

I had a bunch of ideas for mixtapes but never had enough songs to complete their respective themes.

I put some the songs that were supposed to be on their own respective genre on one mixtape, Winter Becomes Eclectixx.  The “xx” is a reference to the end of the mixtape where I include The XX throughout.

My friend, Daeniel, helped out on tracks 5 and 6.  He was president of my high school hip hop club, Club Soul, five years ago.  We recently did a set together and it brought back so many memories DJ’ing I was insistent on having him on my next mixtape.  Feel free to show him some love here.

I really enjoyed making this mixtape and hope you guys like it.

Here’s to 2011,
