Many know, and probably many more are unaware that before Paper Diamond, Alex Botwin played under a couple other monikers.  One of those was the instrumental beatmaker Alex B.  Hardcore Paper Diamond fans know and love Alex B.’s creations and many still wish that Alex would return to those days of production.  To hold over those old school fans, Alex digs into the archives and pulls out this mix via 2009.  Alex tells us that he did this mix for Flying Lotus’ label Brainfeeder.  As we all should know Brainfeeder is the leading label when it comes to future-thinking beat-makers.  The mix below will fix that craving you’ve been wanting for years.  More than half the mix is unreleased tunes, so press play and give this one a rinse or two before the New Year festivities tonight (or wait for that serious hangover tomorrow to ease the pain).  Enjoy!
