Large up to everyone who has shown love for the column throughout the year, and of course the artists, labels and brands responsible for the heavy mix selections brought to you each week. After covering around 200 mixtapes this past year (!) this week’s post is a quick roundup—in no particular order—of some of the top mixes that got us ramping up in the office, fired up for the club, amped up at the gym, holding a quick meds, and so on. Here’s to another year of music—keep the mixtapes bubbling!  If you’d like to submit your DJ/soundsystem/nephew/homegirl’s mix for Mixtape Mondays consideration, hit up djtheory@largeup.com.
