Minimix #3 – One of These Days

Kicking it off today with a track from the UK based Swami (also known across the web as swamibeghost). When I first heard Swami’s track, I immediately searched for the piece he sampled. It’s called “It’ll All Be Over” by Supreme Jubilees, and it’s beautiful. Listening to “It’ll All Be Over”, is when I realized […]

Minimix #2 – “Ode to Humans”

Hello. Please press play on the track, “Djarimirri”, to begin. Djarimirri (Child of the Rainbow) by Gurrumul As humans (of the homo sapien variety), there are parts of our existence many find more comfortable denying than acknowledging – genocide, abuse, violence, cruelty, bigotry, destruction of the planet, slavery, privilege, greed…the list goes on. There’s is […]

Minimix #1 – “Let’s Get Together”

Communities are defined in so many ways, and in my understanding of being human, communities are vital to our survival and overall wellbeing. I heard a phrase the other day that a locale in India is using for their social policy: “physical distancing, social solidarity,” which feels like a good idea. This Side of Beets […]

“For Granted” – Sean Beyond

Track producer, Sean Beyond describes some of his music as “obscure sub-genres of EDM that he’s unaware of” and I have to agree. There’s something about this track is calming, hypnotic, and uplifting – all at the same time. WHAT?! This Chicago based producer has managed to include formant shifted and chopped vocals and a […]

“Show Me a Sweet Dawn” – Vincent DiFrancesco

Beautiful ambient track from neo-classical multi-instrumentalist, Vincent Difancesco with warm strings, dark pulsing four-on-the-floor groove, and experimental ambience. Give this track a spin if you enjoy Burial, Burial & Four Tet, or the UK label, Erased Tapes.

“For the Best” – Trivial Shields ft. Angelica Bess

Trivial Shields investigates darker subject matters and somehow makes it seem like a great idea to shake your body while figuring it all out. His music is a friend who gets the sh*t you’re going through, listens, doesn’t brush anything under the rug, and then gets you to dance the angst away. This track has a funky groove, […]

“The Night Before” – Joey Dosik

The album’s opening track, “The Night Before,” simultaneously shows off Dosik’s soulful piano playing and warm vibes. Fans of Princess, Vulpeck, Bill Withers, and Mocky – check this out, like yesterday (but also today!).

NeW mUsIc!

Over the last year, I’ve been figuring out how to make music I can use, not just to express emotions, but to accompany and set the tone for various happenings. So, this summer I started noting when I needed music the most and wrote with these times in mind.  The first and most recent events on […]

Music For (a short) Film!

Well, hello there!**  This summer, I made the score for a short film that was part of the 48 Hour Film Project. The film had to be written, shot, edited, composed, exported, etc etc – in 48 hours :-0!!! It wasn’t easy, but was super fun and we even got nominated for some awards in the New […]
