February 2015 Mix

I thought I’d do a Valentine’s Day Mix this year, but that Radio Killa playlist I did earlier should suffice for the long weekend.

Here’s some new stuff, including Lupe Fiasco returning (somewhat) to his former self, an uncharacteristically non-angry Kanye West single, an absolute gem of a track from newcomers Refs and that brand new Oh Wonder song I haven’t been able to shake for the last week. Enjoy.

January 2015 Mix

So it’s been a few months since I’ve updated the page, but I’m back with a collection of songs I’ve been playing for the last few months. A lot has happened, D’Angelo came back out of nowhere and gave us Black Messiah, J. Cole dropped his surprise album, 2014 Forest Hills Drive, which I personally feel is his most cohesive piece of work since The Warm Up.

On top of that, I was told about this gem of an EP by Detroit native Daniel Wilson. I included a couple of his tracks on this months mix, some really great stuff on his project, can’t recommend it enough.

Without further hesitation, here’s the January mix.

September 2014 Mix

Just as the summer is coming to a close, decided to focus a little more on some fall sounding stuff.
I joked with a friend about how the second song in this mix is something no man should be playing with his windows down.

I did. I like Pop music. Sue me.

Here’s the mix.

August 2014 Playlist

A good friend of mine gave me the idea to start putting up some music on a monthly basis for everyone. This was the first mix I put together. It’s got a lot of stuff twisted in it, hopefully you find something you like. Enjoy!
