Mornings with BAYNK

Last year, New Zealand favorite BAYNK released Someone's EP, featuring tracks including Poolside, What you Need (feat. NÏKA) and Come Home. His easy sound is reminiscent of Hayden James, Bon Iver and even Autograf— perfect for summer weekend mornings.

He has a great interview with Redbull music about finding his potential as a musician, as well as his finding inspiration from artists like Travis Scott and Mura Masa, here. He's playing June 9th in San Diego for those of you looking to add a show to the calendar.

A Playlist for Your Revolution

In January, a community based pop-up art show took over a warehouse space in the downtown Los Angeles area bringing together some of the most talented artists, musicians, and activists working for us today.  The themes of the show were based around topics of "Justice as a Human Right", "Together We Rise", "No Human Is Illegal and No Human Should Feel Unsafe", "Love, Peace and Empathy", "Manifesting Solutions", and "This Moment in History."    With powerful exhibits and moving panels, this was a positive and humbling event that lead those who participated to question their part in today's call to action.

I was lucky enough to DJ at this event and put together a playlist of some of the songs I played.

ZHU x Tame Impala and GENERATIONWHY

ZHU recently teamed up with Australian psychadelics Tame Impala on a new single — My Life. Despite mixed reviews, there are parts of the EDM track that have a pretty solid bounce. 

In what's reminiscent of Prince, Steven Zhu is an interesting artist in that he prefers to remain anonymous outside of his stage name, ZHU, so that "fans can focus on the music rather than who's behind it." The pace and diversity of rolling sounds in the well-queued synth-pop + unique monologue integration in his summer 2016 album GENERATIONWHY make it a recurring album in my playlist rotation and definitely worth a listen.
