Faimkills & Kid Dxsko – ThrashMix (THOT Catalog)

Curated by Faimkills & mixed by Dxsko, Faim had this to say about Thrashed Out Vol.1 (THOT Catalog) “This is the 1st volume of songs that inspired me in one way or another while I was writhing & recording “Thrashed Out.” Some were the soundtrack to my life during the 2 years I spent working on it, some are songs that I’ve loved for years. Some influenced my lyrics and themes and others influenced my cadence, style, song structure & ambiance. I gave Dxsko a bunch of hand-selected songs & he made what we call a Thrashmix”
