I recently caught up with Summer Knocks and TyDruma of Elemental BPM to record a mix for their show. The theme for this week was: favourite album intros from the past couple years. I’m featured on the second half of the episode. Looking at releases from 2017-2019, I highlighted introductions from Kendrick Lamar, Snoh Aalegra, Mac Miller, Clairmont the Second, JMSN, Majid Jordan, Anderson .Paak, Rapsody, Derin Falana, Majid Jordan and so much more. I was pretty upset when Young M.A. decided to put her album out after this mix was recorded – she would’ve totally made the cut.
It was interesting to mix album intros because they’re not all uniform like a traditional song, but I made it work. The collection of songs sound like a story, take a listen above and save my playlist below to hear the full tracks.
