The Smoking Section is proud to partner with Run The Jewels DJ Trackstar and Mass Appeal to premiere the Jewel Runner Tour mixtape. Below, Trackstar shares a few words about the project.
Indeed, it is true that we’re a week into tour, but it’s still better late than never that I present for your enjoyment the Jewel Runner Tour mixtape. I’ve dropped more merch than mixes lately – including my SKRATCH FAN snapback collabo with DJ QBert and the RAPFANxRTJDJ t-shirt – but it all starts with the music, so I had to put something together for the tour.
The project features tracks from all four touring acts, including Boots’ Meow the Jewels remix and RTJ’s late-night television performance with TV on the Radio, as well as incredibly dope exclusives from Fashawn and Cuz Lightyear. Mike and El did some light hosting in classic WRTJ fashion, and the artwork was expertly handled by the great Ian Klarer, who also did the tour poster and last year’s tour mix cover, among other things.
Check out the full tracklist, stream the mix below and/or download it here. But, if you’re a collector and want a physical copy, you’ll have to come out to one of our tour dates and hit up the merch table, or catch me spinning at an afterparty. RTJ all day… salutes.
