When last we crossed paths with LA/West Coast jockey d’disque and all-around tastemaker Righteous Trash, he had just blessed us with the summery tones of his Tropixx mix. Well, apparently sometimes the grass is greener on the other side of the fence, because he’s back – in the height of summer, no less – with a mix that is as chilled out as Tropixx was uptempo.

Stocked with selections from the “Goth-R&B-Step” spectrum, the new mix comes with the excellent title of the Neuromantics (excellent pun, good sir). Few people seem to have as much fun as Righteous Trash when it comes to selecting a mix. There’s a certain cheekiness to a mix that jumps from Salem to Yelawolf, and from Purity Ring to Big Boi.

Where Tropixx was your soundtrack on the way to the beach, Neuromantics is what you turn up – and up, and up – well after the end of the night, in an empty car with the windows rolled down.
