music: koop “summer sun”

Every summer, I always come back to this song. It just exudes sunshine, swimsuits, sangria, bike rides, beaches, etc.


music: soulnic

This past weekend, me and a couple of friends headed over to Griffith Park for Soulnic– a house music picnic thrown by the good folks at Extra Mild Sauce. Drack muse and Derrick Wize killed it! Seriously had the best time dancing for 6 hours straight. The weather was perfect, the beautiful sight of people gettin down to house, kids running around, 100 people doin the electric slide… all kinds of amazing. I have no pictures because I lost my phone on Sunday tho ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

My favorite part was when they dropped this track ๐Ÿ™‚

music: eddie kendricks “intimate friends”

I’ve been obsessed with this song for a long time. Although it’s widely sampled, nothing beats the original. I was definitely born in the wrong decade.

This was my first introduction to this sample. How amazing is this soundtrack tho?

One of my favorite tracks on the album, especially how she threw that line in from “warning”. Man I love this woman!

I like the beat and Rhymefest has a real knack for storytelling.

outsidelands: to go or not to go?

my name is kristine and i’m addicted to music festivals. i’m seriously debating if i should cop a ticket. seeing stevie wonder is the major reason why i want to go. plus i get to visit my sissy in the bay. i also like how you can walk around beer (ahem coachella). i don’t know if i can afford it especially with a big trip coming up in two weeks, rock the bells, new york again in august, and all the little shows in between…
