Back in May and June while I was reading Tweets and texts from all the fam back on the East Coast discussing rooftop, poolside parties and trips to the Eastern or (South only!) Jersey Shore, it was really difficult maintaining sanity in SF. I knew when I moved here I was giving up seasons – specifically winter – but didn’t realize that summer would cease to exist as well. Our hemisphere is facing the sun, why wouldn’t it warm up? Well, in SF we continued to get the fog, wind, and cooler temps, making it one of the more painful June’s of my life. We took many trips inland to the various valleys in order to soak up as much sun as we could.
Fast forward a couple months and August hits SF along with the wonder that is our Indian Summer. The end of August, September, and October were all filled with beautiful, sunny days – mostly in the 70s but sometimes even the 80s – ensuring me that SF actually does have a summer, it just waits an extra two months to appear. So while friends on the East were closing up their pools and packing on the layers, out here we were laying in bikinis on Baker Beach,
and enjoying poolside parties like the Do-Over at the Phoenix Hotel.
All the finally outdoor relaxing wearing minimal clothes was starting to have an effect on me and all I wanted to listen to was chill, enjoyable vibes. I put this mix together with a poolside attitude in effect. It’s got a touch of moombahsoul, some sweet house tunes, everyone’s favorite R&B, and a little BASS thrown in for fun and always supporting homies like Poolside, Vin Sol, 5kinandbone5, Derek ‘DJA’ Allen, and Proper Villains. Buy and support their tunes because without them, I couldn’t play awesome sets all the time.
