Too many mixes dance around the subject. There’s mixes that want you to love, to have an emotional connection, to be romanced, to need a spiritual awakening. Fuck that noise. In the immortal words of LaTour’s 1991 dance hit, “people are still having sex.” That’s the point here. This mix is exactly 22 minutes and 43 seconds in length. If you’re a real athlete, you’ll hear it twice or three times on repeat. We at TGRI want you to have sex. To this mix. A lot.
