Remix albums go a little something like this: An artist will first release a track, generally a single or a popular track off of an album. Then, the track will receive great feedback and gain popularity. After that, a label or the artist themselves will reach out to fellow artists with the stems, or pieces of a track to remix it. Sometimes the artists will be picked by holding a remix contest, other times the artists will be handpicked by the artist or label. After all that, the tracks are compiled and put into an order and the album is given album art. The result is usually a beautiful collaborative album with a strong recurring theme.HM09 – Abject by Twistyknobs achieves this result wonderfully, presenting one track in thirteen alternate remixes with each one as original in terms of perspective and sound as the last.

A Relatively new producer from Saint Augustine, Florida, GENNUI hits the scene with their first EP, Let You In. A short and sweet, four track EP; Let You In proves to be a great debut album for this producer.
As the title track, Let You In establishes the theme nicely as an opening track. It opens with rhythmic claps, and then the vocal sample comes in over rhythmic piano chords. GENNUI slowly builds it up then quickly drops it into a future funk groove with a very smooth, polished sound.
