I love music. Pretty essential quality for a DJ, right? More to the point, I love finding the right music.
That's where playlists come in.
Due to a compulsive need for playing music that matches my current task or feeling, I have curated a collection of playlists. These playlists are not necessarily separated by genre, but rather, by the mood I want to elicit or supplement.
These collections are my favorites. I include them on my website to demonstrate my taste, but more importantly, because I love sharing music with others.
Whether you are working, driving, exercising, cleaning, cooking, or partying, I hope one of these playlists below helps supplement your mood!
NOTE: If you like a playlist, you can open it on Spotify to save it for future listening :) You should also save this page... you know, for when your mood changes.
