Our November mixtape

As we swing deeper into the holidays, make time for yourself. You are incredibly important and if you think about it, you can’t help anyone when you don’t look out for yourself. We hope this month’s mix can play a part in that. As we’re reminded, “Life can turn out really good if you work with what ya got.”

Our July mixtape

It only seemed right to start this summer mixtape with some Spanish flavor before progressing into hip hop, RnB, indie, and sealing the deal with a track from a real renaissance woman. Whether you’re clicking or tapping, it’s time to get your tunes.

You and I just weren’t thinking right

I love the feeling I get from watching Toro Y Moi’s latest video You and I. It’s simple, but the color, light, and sound is simply gorgeous. As one commenter puts it, “this makes me want to cook mac and cheese ass naked.” Okay, I’m not exactly sure that’s what I had in mind, but it does have me floating up amongst the clouds and drifting the calm waters of the Pacific.
