I hope you enjoyed our little duets one year anniversary mixtape as much as we enjoyed sharing it with you… but now it’s time to get back to the business of our presentation of the Essentials mixtapes entered into our Society contest, to keep the new year going, proper. Next up, in no particular order, is grafista and his wonderful entry Don’t Fear The Music.
After listening a shit load of times, stuck on mad repeat, I think I’ve learned a little something about our good friend grafista, he’s one chilled-out chap. This ain’t no rock out with your cock out, this ain’t no classic rock eulogy, this is chill rock, pop, jazz, whatever… I get the feeling he’s one cool cucumber as they kids like to say. The kinda guy who’d I’d be be right at home with hanging out in the living room, not really saying much to each other, just slowly bobbing his head while the music fills every crevice, nook, & cranny and time just passes on by.
With the temperatures dropping, the skies getting grey and overcast, grafista’s mix plays perfectly, but I’ll tell ya, it isn’t the most conducive for getting work done! lol…. It’s hard to crank out a perfect charts & 1,000 emails when all you want to do is go chill-out at home and listen to music with a friend who’s on the otherside of the Atlantic.
Thank you so much grafista for your entry! It’s fantastic, good luck in the contest! I hope to get rabney’s up next, it’s one giant mp3, so I need to split it up for you, so he can get as much credit as possible, just didn’t have the time this weekend (sorry). Hopefully, I can rectify that tonight.
Alright, enough jibbering….. time to get the sharin’ a-shared, time to get your groove on as the…
