1. AUDIO: Nitetrax Edition 11 – “Minneapolis Special” (Free Download).

    Purple rarities and obscurities, and other MPLS/Flyte Tyme favorites abound in this monster “Nitetrax” series mix from the folks at NYC imprint Citinite . Originally broadcast on NTS, the 2-hour extravaganza is inspired by the recent arrival of Wax Poetics issue #50, which features Prince on its cover , and makes a nifty companion to the exclusive Dam-Funk mix that dropped a couple weeks back. (Extra props for including The Time’s 2nd LP sleeper, “I Don’t Wanna Leave You.”) Listen below, or download it for free .
