I’m a bit late getting up the embedded playlist of my favorite tracks of the month, but as I said on IG – two videos a week is kind of a LOT to manage if you work full time! I’m doing my best though – a forever work in progress. I also decided to include some vlog footage from my recent trip to the SXM Music Festival in St. Martin/Sint Maarten in the middle of the month. I’ll never tire of looking at images of the beaches there, especially at sunset (my favorite time of day).
My music favorites this month actually don’t really reflect much about the festival, except for the one YokoO track I included. I got REALLY into Chez Damier early in March, and he dj’ed in Boston the weekend after I was back in town. Honestly he wasn’t great live, the night I saw him, but some of the tracks I have of his are just BLISS – intensely classic deep house with soulful vocals that are lushful perfection. There’s a new-to-me Francis Harris track remixed by Black Light Smoke that I’ve been really loving, and the Caius track is a bit of an odd throw in, but I really have been listening to it a bunch! I found it through a Michelak vlog this month, and filed it away to use in a future video myself. It reminds me of how much I used to love what they covered (ASHANTI’S FOOLISH ZOMG THROWBACK!).
