IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING #6 – Hand-picked by Lexis

My annual Spring mix has become my most challenging and rewarding project. All year round I accumulate notes, lists and piles of records that I think have that little something magical needed for this session.

This is a deeply personal and spiritual mix but it isn’t limited to a genre. Music that makes me float, meditate, introspect. Music that makes me grateful and hopeful.

Dedicated to the sun. Dedicated to surviving the storms.

Dedicated to my mom.

Dedicated to you.
