Happy 2016 all!

I was planning on making a big statement to reinvent myself after being labelled on the Best of 2015.  Burnmix 69 was to be my Pulp Fiction, Dallas Buyer's Club or maybe Brokeback Mountain.  It didn't happened.  I ended up with two completely different half-baked mixes that went only five or six deep. 

What you have here is exactly the opposite.  More of the same, more Choi, more of my bread and butter...these are m'ay yams!
