Winter Mixtape At Passion of the Weiss




I've spent 90% of my life in Canada, the top exporter of politeness, snow and mediocre pop-punk, and yet I've never made a winter mixtape before this year. Summer mixes, sure, but a cold weather mix is unexplored territory.
I recently coordinated a virtual murderer's row of music writers to select their favourite wintertime tunes for a mixtape over at the Passion. Thanks to Jeff Weiss, Nate Patrin, Zilla, Douglas, Matt Shea, Dan Love and Renato for picking an amazing tracklist and contributing insightful writeups. Props to Sach O for the stellar mixing and for his excellent picks. You can check the tracklisting and stream the mix below.
