Do you remember a few weeks ago when the Reader published my profile of Brenmar, the former Chicago noise musician turned New York dance-music DJ-slash-producer? And how I mentioned that he had a new mix coming out via V magazine?

Well, it’s out now, and if you want an easy way to get right at the heart of Brenmar’s considerable appeal, this is it. The 44-minute-long set has a broad streak of nostalgia for up-tempo 90s R&B but a sharply modern sense of style, a combination that’s probably best represented by DJ Buzzy’s two-step-inflected remix of Mya’s 1999 single “Case of the Ex.” Finish out your work week in a sleek, future-sexy style by streaming it below.
