September’s mix chronicles the life and death of a house party. First come setup jitters, which melt into the too-loud bass and the flashing lights. Next, bodies blur on carpet transformed into a dance floor. Then follows the plateau when the party starts drifting toward drunken drowsiness. Food is wrapped up, the front door shuts and you’re left treading spilled punch before an empty couch. Loneliness creeps back into your apartment… if only for the last of the night.

This playlist, created by our print editor Vincent McDonald, cobbles together thoroughly underrated tracks from popular artists and the popular songs of lesser-known artists for a fresh rollercoaster experience.
