beatmatch2FIN

Back with another B2B, Cold Compress Radio returns to compete for the crowd. But this time, have the turntables turned? Back-to-back, we offer five musical suggestions under five musical subjects. Some are party starters, whilst others are purposely party stoppers. Our match-ups are interactive so check them out for new/old music! What would your mix be?
