2017 Annual Mixtape

Into the Dream

This year’s set is influenced by sounds of jazz, R&B, electronic dance music, reggae, funk, folk, dub, psychedelia, hip-hop, West African music, Indian music, bluegrass, Middle Eastern music, americana, Wixarika, and Yoruba music. Most songs have a sort of soulful futuristic hybrid melty sound that defy easy categorization and tickle my toes. The set in its entirety is a journey through a wide swath of emotion, of learning to love and trust in oneself, of dreaming as a portal to enter the shadow realms, to come through to the other side transformed, living anew, and remembering how to sing.
