From the Cocoon
It’s been two years since I last sent out an annual music mix, but it’s finally it’s here – my tenth mixtape (in 12 years)!
I feel like it captures some of the essential feelings that characterized 2020 for me: the heartache of isolation and loss, the numbing passage of time, and the confusion and hope that comes with big changes. But perhaps most of all, it is a celebration of some of my favorite songs that have kept me company over these last couple years.
During black history month I want to especially honor the profound influence black musicians have had on music across the board and on me personally through the music I love.
I hope you find some gems in this curated collection that inspire you too or at least get you feeling the groove.
