It’s finally here, the first belated mix of the summer. But it certainly won’t be the last–I’ll be cooking up a few, but we’re especially looking forward to an eclectic mix from a to-be-announced guest mixmaster. (Mixmaster?)

This RCNSDRD mix–which clocks in at just over an hour long–is steeped in some of my favorite R&B tracks from the past few years. It also features a few serious contenders for 2012’s best song. In every case, these are songs that are all pleasantly, sometimes painfully affecting. It’s not the breeziest mix July’s ever seen, but here’s to hoping you enjoy a heavy listen as much as I do, even when the sun’s beating down.
