Flashback to the second loveliest little afternoon I experienced all summer last year- Blaine and Nate's Hot Tub Season Closer. A backyard full of great friends, a grill full of meaty sundries, a few of my favorite DJs. Choons from The Black Madonna, Garrett David, Secret Studio, Siriusmo, Metro Area, Groovejet, Acid Mondays, HNNY, Nice7, Modeler, Mathar, Frankie Knuckles, Bjork/Underworld and more came together for a really fun sunny Sunday afternoon mix. I'm feeling really fantastic about everything at the moment... settled in a wonderful place, motivated and blessed with so much promise for the coming year(s). Sort of a rebirth if you will, hence the title of this episode (lol). This mix is a great reflection of the vibes I'm feelin' right now so I hope it brings the vibes for you as well. Enjoy! (fyi the first loveliest was my homecoming BBQ, the set from which will be posted just as soon as I can locate it haha.)
