Damn, it’s been a while since we released LMDM… So much has happened – Steph got engaged, is constantly on the move, I’ve been 100 miles and running at The Playlist Generation and life has generally been on full throttle but we wouldn’t want it any other way. To say the least, balancing art and business is no walk in the park and we can’t fake the funk so if it doesn’t happen organically we’d rather not do it at all. We don’t do this for money…
I live for the funk, I die for the funk…” – Notorious B.I.G.
So apologies for recent months but Steph had a great idea to get us back in the game that will make it all better. Each day for the next 4 days we’ll be releasing an LMDM mini-mix to add a little funk to your brain. We’ll start at July and make our way to the present. Now that’s how you return to the scene but…
Don’t call it a comeback, I been here for years!” - LL Cool J
Damn right, this is not our first rodeo and the internets most beloved is years in the game now. It blows my mind whenever I think about it.
As many of you know, Steph curates LMDM top to bottom with each song being a chapter in the long form narrative that is our beloved mix tape. This time around the stories are just as compelling yet in a shorter form which is completely reflective of our current lifestyles. When you’re on the verge of so much change it’s hard to lock into one vibe. You’re inspired and you want to take in the whole world because so many forms of expression connect with you. That’s what it means to love something, to want every single inch of it. Listening to the kaleidoscope of genres, styles and emotions covered in these tapes show us not only how much Steph loves music but also how much she keeps things moving.
Treat it like boxing, stick and move, stick and move…” – Biggie
Art imitates life and right now these little LMDM blast make a lot of sense to me because exploring, absorbing and keeping on is just what the doctor ordered. I have an unfair advantage since I’ve heard them all but this series is awesome and I think all the LMDM loyals will have a great time listening. So without further ado here is the Julliet 2013 Mini-Mix to keep things off. Next one drops tomorrow, enjoy.
