A 2020 mixtape

As long as there is something to strive for

Outdoor dining, 2020 style.

DJ Keybo

I love this original mix by DJ Keybo. He describes it as, “Hip Hop & Alt Rock sitting in a tree, M-I-X-X-I-N-G.”


I recently learned about Lyrah’s beautiful work on Twitter. She is a singer, songwriter, and producer based in San Francisco.

Sim Simah

Sim Simah recently released an EP called “Entropy Led Them.” You can read more about his impressive background in this VoyageLA article.

Myles Yachts

Here’s a beautiful Gap ad featuring the extremely talented duo, Myles Yachts and Lil Buck, as they improvise to the song “Too Fast” by Sonder.

The songs

FRANCHISE (feat. Young Thug & M.I.A.) by Travis Scott — Single.
This Travis Scott single interpolates Dem Franchize Boyz’ 2004 single, White Tee. In this video, SLAPSTAR creates a cool mix of the two music videos (from 2004 and 2020). Dem Franchize Boyz, an Atlanta hip hop group, is credited for turning the white tee into a statement piece. The song’s name, is in reference to the group and to McDonald’s franchises.

The car has a face!!
Thanks to Genius for helping me track this down.
From Megan’s verse.
HNY from 21.
From here.
Perfection that brings tears to your eyes.

It means to me to have everything to simultaneously have nothing
The state of neutrality, to have everything is to, be dead
As long as there is something to strive for
Something to continue to work toward
We um, validate our existence, um
Just try to have some fun while you doin’ it

Streaming options

The playlist is available on Apple Music and Spotify.
