Interview With Malibu Soma

“To whoever is reading this, I implore you to look for music that goes beyond what is mainstream. Find artists who are really making things because they're passionate about the music and the creation process, not because they want clout or money or whatever. There are so many amazing artists out there that are struggling to make ends meet because the big blogs or labels aren't giving them a chance because they're not a surefire money maker like these trashy money-machine artists…

Music to Get Lost In The City

Allowing yourself to believe that you know everything there is to know about everything that you know is a purely self destructive behavior, and one that more often than not deprives you of the chance to grow, learn, and discover new things through the exploration of your environment…

This playlist will highlight a new track every week, that is simply addicting. It will highlight new and old tracks, oldies and the "new wave". Most songs will be a mix of hip-hop, r&b, and trap, but ultimately can be a part of any genre…

Music to Practice Yoga To

Stop everything you are doing. Yes, right now - put your phone down, stop responding to your friend’s text, and that Instagram caption can wait.

Take a breath in. . . and a giant exhale out let it go.

One more time even DEEPER now. Inhale let your lungs fill up, now really fill them up as MUCH as you can . . .yes keep filling . . . now hold it for a few seconds at the top . . . exhale let it go.

Feel more calm, relaxed, and centered? If so, great you’re one of the few people I’ve met where taking a few breaths has calmed everything down.

If not, welcome to the other 98% of the population (myself included) where we need that little extra push, that nudge into the “zen like” state we are all after.

Music to Impress Your Date

Born to Beatles-era parents in a Jay-Z and Eminem time, it wouldn’t have been hard to predict that I would develop a relatively eclectic music taste. Before I ever got my first iPod, I was exposed through my parents (and my older brother) to the sounds of people like Bob Dylan and Van Morrison, Outkast and the Black Eyed Peas, and 50 Cent and Kanye West. In fact, my dad wanted to name my brother and I Wilson and Otis, after Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding…

From Tin Pan Alley To Spotify: Music And Its Many Formats

My ten-year-old son asked me the other day which Spotify playlists I listened to when I was a kid. I started laughing and told him that we didn’t have Spotify back then. And since I had just told him a few days before that none of the games he is playing on his iPhone existed when I was younger, he looked at me long and hard and finally asked, “If you didn’t have any of this stuff, what did you guys have on your iPhones then?” I looked at him equally long and finally said, “We didn’t have iPhones.”

Music to Simp To

Music to Simp to is about pouring your heart out. It is for the people who have had their heart ripped out by past loves, are being mistreated by current lovers, or who are longing for the simple taste of love. Sometimes we don't wish to simply forget about our love-sickness, but we want to have a good cry. This is Music to Simp to. Mostly classic sounds with a tinge of 90's angst, this playlist is carefully curated to ensure you have a cathartic experience…

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

I think it’s something that I’ve always wanted to do. I’ve always hated the music on the radio and enjoyed searching for new music. The feeling of finding a song you love that you would have never found if you weren’t digging is amazing…

Music to Bridge The Gap

Growing up in the late 90’s and early 2000’s in Cincinnati, OH hip hop artists like Jay-Z, Fabolous, and The Diplomats were some of my favorite bar aficionados. Walking to school, carrying Hella CD’s, arguing with my homeboys about who had the best bars and who had the hottest verses in our favorite songs was the way of life…

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

Playlist curation has always been really fun and I'm so glad that I found Music to because it allows me to share new music with a much larger audience. My favorite part about adding new songs to my playlist is the interaction you can have through listeners through social media.

Music to Put The Soul Into Hip Hop

Music is a sacred thing. I love music more than anything. In my own time, I own a rap website (www.rapreligion.net) and it made me realize how much enjoyment I find in introducing music to someone else. I enjoy being capable of making others happy and selecting the music that resonates with them best.

Hi there, my name's Kara Bradford, I'm living in Pasadena CA in the USA, and I'm currently a student, swim coach, and songwriter! 

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

I make playlists for myself pretty constantly, so making the switch over to doing it professionally was as easy as pie. I love being able to share the amazing songs I find, as well as songs that I love. I also love getting to utilize my skill in prose to describe what I'm listening to and why I love them! Sharing music has always been a joy of mine, so curating for me just makes sense.

And here we are with the artist of this week. The guy who brought us a new anthem to sing with “God Gave Rock and Roll”, but making it clear in half the time. Nothing against Argent, but is a good point when the message can be sent a bit shorter...

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It?

I wouldn’t say that I ever really gave it a thought, it just kinda fell in my lap. I’ve always enjoyed sharing music/making a mix tape for friends, so there’s that, but I think I really enjoy listening to a LOT of new music.
