Hey there 👋

If you're returning from last month's journey, welcome back! I hope you enjoyed the ride and that you found some joy in letting the playlist take you somewhere perhaps you've never ventured before. If you're joining us for the first time, welcome welcome.

This is the 4th issue of my newsletter series and I'm just getting started. In my mission to tell stories and spread positivity through stories and music, I plan to add more visual and interactive content in the next few months. I have a few ideas floating around but would love to hear from my subscribers what you would like to see or hear!

If you have a suggestion or would like to collaborate in any way, please respond to this email directly, I would love to hear from you 🙂

Theme of this Month:
🍹 My Rooftop Party

In the thick of the summer heat these days, I’m reminded of the best rooftop party I've ever been to. I still remember this party as if it were yesterday. The moment you arrived, it hit you that this wasn’t just your average shindig. This was the super-bowl performance of all rooftop parties.

The food and drink were aplenty and the decorations were dazzling, but that wasn't what made the show. The true highlight was the freaking vibes, man. In one corner, artists were stenciling, sketching, and hunched over each other giving stick-and-pokes. In another corner were a variety of instruments made available for anyone to pick up and play – the cue for a spontaneous jam sesh with a fellow stranger. And at the very front, a DIY stage was set up with a never-ending rotation of musical acts: from live funk and jazz performances that made you sway with passion, to DJs playing African inspired beats, the night alternated between funk and disco, french and deep house, from dusk till dawn. It was a swirling, majestic and magical feeling. It created a space for friends and strangers alike to dance and joyously gather without a worry in the world; an authentic celebration of life itself.

For this month’s playlist, I’ve used a variety of sounds and genres to recreate that memory. This is for anyone to play at a summer party they host this season – either virtual or IRL. No matter how impromptu the party, my hope is that this provides a tinge of the summer sweetness we all crave so badly right now.

Listen now!

I hope you enjoyed this!

I'll be back next month on the 25th with a newly curated playlist on Spotify. If you're getting value out of this newsletter consider sharing it on Twitter!
