Michael’s Mixtape – The First

A week ago in San Diego, a friend that I don’t get to catch up with often enough asked me about the music I was listening to these days…

For a second I blanked, but then everything came rushing to my head like a waterfall. So I felt it would be fun to log the music I’m listening to and share it with all of you. It varies between new and old music, but it’s all good to me. Music is a very subjective thing for people, and that’s what makes it very cool to me.

While I’m sharing this first Mixtape list here (with music accompaniment of course), I’ll also have a public Spotify playlist for you to check out as well.
