Summertime. Although EGM, JMS, NDW, JL, ES, DD and I started bidding on this season’s Song of the Summer weeks ago, yesterday marked the official start of Summer. So, it only seems fitting to dedicate this week’s Lineup to our Song of the Summer picks – past, present and future. Ain’t nothing but good vibes this week. Until next Monday.

Throwback. Sometimes my friends ask me to DJ their parties make playlists for their parties. Sometimes Most of the time the perfect playlist for a joint birthday party is a collection of the finest Hip-Hop and R&B songs from the mid 2000s. All of the time, throwback jams make for the perfect Lineup. Which you can find below. And if you like what you …

A little SoundCloud love. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t spend 99% of this week listening to Jamie xx’s In Colour and Florence + The Machine’s How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful (if you haven’t yet, stop whatever you are doing right now and take care of that – they truly truly special). However, it’s been a hot …

It’s beginning to sound a lot like Summer. Despite the foolish weather here in San Francisco, it’s June and things are seriously heating up. “Surf”, the collaboration between Chance The Rapper, Donnie Trumpet and The Social Experiment dropped last week (for free!) on iTunes Jamie xx’s debut solo album “In Colour” gets released today (spoiler alert: I’m obsessed) Florence’s “How Big, …

Three day weekends are the best. So let’s keep the good times rolling. This week’s Lineup has no particular theme, but as it turns out it happens to pair perfectly with the following potential day-off activities: grilling (especially hot dogs) enjoying 1-4 glasses pitchers of sangria road tripping back home finally cleaning out your closet getting over the FOMO inducing snap …

Unplugged. If you’ve listened to TML before, you know that I’m a big fan of music with tons of complex layered sounds and vocals. I think James Blake is one of the most brilliant musicians of our generation, and I think being in a room is so full of bass that you can literally feel the soundwaves moving through your body is …

Feeling good. One of my favorite parts about finding new music is the serendipitous moment that I find the next song I know I’m going to have on repeat for…indefinitely. Especially when I just happen to click play on a song for reasons I can’t really place. This week I was browsing through some new releases and stumbled across a new track by …

It’s gonna be May. People often ask me how I go about finding / sourcing new music. And there’s no one answer – it’s a combination of things that also tends to change over time. When I was in college, I spent hours on Hype Machine and electronic music blogs like the Chemical Jump (RIP). I’m still obsessed with my SoundCloud stream that …

Yum. This week we’re going back to SoundCloud for a roundup of some of my favorite tracks of April. Most of the songs in this week’s Lineup are brand new for Spring 2015, featuring a whole slew of fresh artists, producers and remixes. And big ups my boy Vic Mensa who has gone from 0 to 100 and signed with Roc …

Something good. Spring has sprung, festival season has officially kicked off, and it feels like every time I hop onto the Internet I’m gifted with another new track release. And don’t even get me started on all of the upcoming album releases over the next few months. Coachella might be over, but trust me we have quite the year ahead …
