Music to Bridge The Gap

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…

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.

Music to Remember Your 20s

This playlist was born out of a desire to draw on something so universal yet so intimate. Your 20s are that time in your life akin to the training wheels coming off, the free trial expiring, and the breath you hold before the plane takes off. You embrace it – all of it. The blessings, the messy, the awkward, the unexpected and the serendipity...

Music to Vibe To

Being a music lover with an eclectic taste in music from all over the world, I created this playlist for the music lover who is a bit of a loner especially when your earphones are plugged in. I know this sounds cliché but hear me out for a second okay? it combines sounds from different eras in music, from different cities round the world, from different music personalities who transfer their passion not only into their music but through the speakers to the person listening...

Music to 3:00 AM

I got into Music To kind of in an ironic way. I was looking for playlists to submit my band’s music and I noticed the become a curator tab. One Skype call later here I am getting a feel for everything and learning as I go.

There are so many different art forms in the world but none come close to the emotion and meaning which music holds and with this playlist I hope to showcase the most import tracks that I’ve come across in the past years.

Music to Inspire Composers

I spent my childhood learning about classical music through the cello, then when I was in high school I picked up the guitar and a whole new world entered my life. After that, I got interested in audio production film scoring, leading to electronica, jazztronica, fusion, experimental music, sound art etc...

Music to Feed The Grind

Let's Feed The Grind!

I know that we're all in one way or another dealing with day to day life, something I call the Grind!

Musically it started for me as a 12 year old kid in the UK, being told by his parents he couldn't have a plane ticket on SkyTrain and head to Woodstock in 1969 as I somehow knew it was the place to be.

I did make it to the Isle of Wight in 1970 though...

Music to Play Video Games

Video game music has come along way since the early days of 8-bit grunts and beeps. Not that there's anything wrong with 8-bit grunts and beeps, mind you. If the Tetris soundtrack has taught us anything as a civilization it's that good music can come grunting and beeping in 8 little bits. There is a lot of great video game music out there and more people should know about it; that's the point of this playlist...

Music to Bleed Neon To

Do you want to feel electric? Cool, me too. 

This is a collection of songs that feel like youth, like rebellion and staying out too late, like shots in a smoky bar, like dancing with a stranger. These are songs that are neon pink, liquid gold, electric blue, that buzz and sing with their own life long after you've stopped playing them.

Music to Love Your Commute

Music is what makes the mundane bits of life—those tedious yet inevitable things, like commuting to work—bearable. I spend a ridiculous amount of time in the car, and it can’t be helped. As a music geek who is stuck with a long commute, I try to make the most of it by using that time to take in a ton of music. It’s something I’ve (mostly) come to appreciate.

Music to Be Alive To

Don’t just exist; live. 

Our lives today are fast, and often dreary. In the everyday rut of doing well at work, or at school, our lives are halfway strung: the willingness to savour every moment but lacking the means—and I mean mostly time—to do so. We often find refuge in Netflix, to take a break from our own lives. But ever imagined what it would be like to make movies out of our own lives? Dramatic vision, I know: but that is entirely the point. Life is about drama; the roller coster ride of emotions and challenges. And like in the movies, sequence of our own lives deserve their own soundtracks...

Music to Get Wild To

Since the age of sixteen I always found myself curating countless discs of dance music. No matter what track, artist or genre was, if the beat was danceable, I would find myself gravitating towards it uncontrollably. Daft Punk, Michael Jackson, Chic, The Village People, Justin Timberlake, Prince, Usher  and Will Smith are among several artists that I would listen to. They provided that initial inspiration for me to continue with the craft. From that moment on I knew that I wanted to do something with music.

Music to Bend The Rules

I have loved music as far back as I can remember. I have had so many ridiculous phases; from obsessing over hiphop artists such as Akon, to listening to Japanese Rock Bands from the 70s such as Theatre Brook, my taste in music has lead me to have a very open mind...

Music to Celebrate Life

I remember being fourteen in 1986 and buying the Beatles' “Magical Mystery Tour” album. I went home, poured myself a glass of Dr. Pepper and sat down on our living room couch to look at the LP cover. Then I started playing the record. The last cut on side one, “I Am The Walrus” left me breathless. ..

Music to Surf Naked On The Sun

When we satisfy our desire to eat, to sleep, or reproduce, our brain releases dopamine--the "feel good" neurochemical involved when we experience pleasure and reward. Turns out this same chemical is released when listening to music (aka eargasms). I will be your song dealer and this playlist contains highly concentrated musical frisson.

Music to Experience Urban Love Affairs

Sex and love relationships have fascinated me for a very long time - I see myself as a researcher and observer - whether creatively and professionally or just out of personal interest, it occupies me how technology changed our behavior and how challenging to us relationships have become.

Music to Follow Dreams

Era un adolescente en plena segunda mitad de los 90’s, a pesar de las listas mainstream y el inicio de Internet, no eran suficientes medios para encontrar nuevas propuestas y mucho menos para encontrar CD’s de tus artistas favoritos, para ello si tenias suerte podías solicitar importados desde Estados Unidos y con una larga espera de 3 a 6 meses,
