HEL : LER mixes are part of my workflow for discovering music. I get inspired by what I hear in DJ mixes, friends playlists, the radio, 50¢ records I bought at a thrift store, or tracks I just found perusing the Internet.

In Spotify I star the songs that I casually like and put them together into album length playlists, like the mixtapes I’d make for girls in college (that I casually liked.

I curate the music so each track is somehow relevant to the next. My taste is “eclectic” which is likely the result of growing up listening to KCRW.
