Dear London, the first single released from the mixtape, features the British songbird rhyming over the instrumental of Jay-Z’s Dear Summer. With songs such as this fluid freestyle, Estelle and Trauma create a platform to bridge her core fans from her first two albums to her new album which is scheduled for release later this year. DJ Trauma states, “I am so excited about our collaboration…
The familiar cover for the soon to be released mixtape was inspired by Pink Floyd’s best-selling album of 1973, The Dark Side of the Mood. Trauma states, “Estelle’s music on this mixtape is different… it posses unusual themes. Therefore we wanted to translate that on our cover.”
#ialmostmadeamixtape will follow the previous mixtape, Change Vol. 1 (2009), which the two collaborated on in conjunction with Fonzworth Bentley. In addition to the projects that he has created with Estelle, Trauma has released Sextape Chronicles featuring singer/songwriter Verse Simmonds, Late Night Flights with DJ Mars, and The Black Beatles hosted by singer/songwriter duo Rock City. Each mixtape reflects Trauma’s “not just one sound” style with an array of tracks and songs that possess international appeal.
