SPRINGTIME SPIRITUAL Mix Vol. 7 (2020) – Hand-picked by Lexis


For the 7th year now I have been marking the arrival of Spring with this spiritual mix which has become the project that is closest to my heart. In case you’re wondering, in Montreal springtime arrives in April – seems like our 6 month winters steal a month of autumn and one from spring.

All year long, I save song ideas in a little notepad just for my Spring mix, it’s the only DJ mix that is truly on my mind all year long. It is an exploration of spirituality in all its musical forms, jazz to house to reggae and more.

For me, it’s also a form of catharsis and annual goal post marking another year of growth, challenges. I hope this year’s edition can provide some inspiration, solace and happiness. I wish you all well during these challenging times.

Dedicated to my mom. Dedicated to my friend Marc aka dull. Dedicated to all of us who have survived life’s storms.
