Jorge Cruz, the former Creative Director and label manager of TRAX Records, has dropped an exclusive mixtape featuring music Cruz signed, curated or produced within the last eight years at the label.

"It's been a great run, a beautiful time, but as the peaches and the berries know -- when it's time to take a bow, it's time," Cruz said in a statement about their departure and the mixtape. "I wanted to honor some of my babies, some of the gems I dusted off, and some of the future."

Last month, Cruz spoke with THUMP about their legacy at TRAX and why it is important to reclaim dance music for the marginalized. Stream "Jorge's Farewell Tape" below.
