With Volume's I and II, the VAVLT BOYZ, the Atlanta duo, Heroes x Villains and BLKMORRIS created some of the sexiest mix tapes of the summer. Now, with Volume III: Cold Summer, the newest member Respire successfully picks up right where his contemporaries left off. Cold Summer is less a mix tape and more of a dark, lush, sonic landscape of layered and textured sounds from an assortment of genres. New wave, electro, house, UK funk and even rap music are represented here but it's all blended together so seamlessly, Cold Summer is almost an entirely new genre all on it's own.
