OCD just dropped this 6-track EP yesterday. And as most tracks by these guys are, these songs flow really nicely and have a really mellow feel. This mixtape definitely shows how much musical talent these two guys both have. The mixtape has only 6 tracks, but I like it better because each track is good and is worth listening to.
