puerto rico, crash boat, playa, mar azulSummer is not summer without a good summer playlist to vibe off while sipping on juicy watermelon cocktails, over-stuffing on fried fish tacos, and sun baking on a crystal-clear blue beach. Oh wait, reality check. There are no crystal-clear blue beaches in NYC. I can't help to always dream of summertime being surrounded by Puerto Rico's beautiful beaches. Now I have to settle with what I have near by. And that is... Rock Rock Rockaway Beach. I guess I'll hitch a ride take the L train to Rockaway Beach with an ALWAYS SUMMER playlist. I hope you do the same to wherever you are off to this summer and make sure to me on soundcloud for more good tunes by clicking here.

Sound of 2015'

My favorite tunes of the year 2015 so far include a chart topper from my ultimate women crush Ellie Goulding, a comeback from Florence + The Machine, a surprise album from Drake, my morning hype tune from rap duo Rae Sremmurd, and a sexy 50 Shades of Grey track from The Weeknd. At the end of year, I'll be listening back to this playlist to reminiscence on all the good tunes that sound tracked some memorable moments like a dance off to Uptown Funk, a Valentine's Day with Drake and friends, and a beach road trip singing along to Ms. Florence Welch.
