Mixtape Monday: Purple Prince Mix Retrospective + More

This week’s episode of Mixtape Monday strikes directly at the heart, as it marks the one year anniversary of Prince Rogers Nelson‘s untimely passing. If you’re like us and are a devout parishioner at the altar of the Purple One — then you know just how hard it might be to hear the supreme creative’s name.

A handful of selectors pull double duty as dedicated musicologists, taking listeners on a ride through Prince’s expansive catalog of hits, b-sides, rarities, live jams and more. There are re-ups of old mixes, new rendering of mixes and efforts split into volumes. There are projects that dive deep into Prince’s sensual side and ones that are heavy on the funk.

Through it all, there are also a few easter eggs tucked into this week’s round-up from SoulectionAcross The Tracks Radio and Elegant Animals. Are we gonna let de-elevator bring us down? Oh no, let’s go!
