IT HAPPENS EVERY SPRING – Volume 5 (Hand-Picked by Lexis)

Eclectic

I am constantly working on mixes, guest appearances or radio sessions. My musical mind is always occupied on the two or three projects that are on my plate. However, my annual spring mix has become my favorite, it remains on my mind all year round.

Initially the inspiration came from the fact that Winters in Montreal, Canada are so tough, lasting 6 months of the year instead of 4. Once again this year it explains why the mix is out late April instead of late March, we just broke the freezing point a couple days ago!

The idea behind the mix is to present songs that have a certain spiritual, beautiful, powerful, and inspiring quality to them. Of course as I always do I try to pick across many genres and eras. From spiritual jazz to modern classical, to hip-hop back to house music.

This mix is dedicated to my mom. This was one of her favorite projects of mine.

Wishing you all a lovely spring!
