2 Raw for the Average Listener
Peace & welcome to the first installment of the “2 Raw for the Average Listener” mixtape series. For this particular session, I’ve decided to include some familiar gems to get things started. In future editions you can expect to journey much deeper into the crates.
There’s nothing that can compare to that feeling you get when you discover something new and beautiful. I hope to be able to provide that feeling to some listeners and bring a smile to the face of others who are already familiar.
This series will differ slightly from the traditional mixtape in that it won’t be filled with shout-outs or scratching. The project is not a display of my capabilities, but rather a tribute to the musical pioneers and innovators of the past (and occasionally the present).
Please enjoy this collection of songs & pass it onto others. Music is art. Art is love. Later.
