Toronto's Prince Innocence—Josh McIntyre and Talvi Faustmann—might be best known for making sleek, minimalist synth-pop, but their music tastes are second to none, as evidenced by their DJ sets around the city and McIntyre's radio show on TRP.

Ahead of their upcoming self-released EP Easy Life out next month, they've shared an exclusive mix with us, featuring tracks by Barcelona-based producer Zora Jones, Dean Blunt's Babyfather project, Italian ambient pioneer Gigi Masin, Oneohtrix Point Never, and more.

"As sleek and sterile as an underground mall, this mix is for the heartbroken and empty, for that moment at the shitty condo after-party when you look around and everyone's skin looks green," says the duo. "It contains experimental, ambient and sad club music from around the world."
