I’m in New Zealand so it’s only right.
Long live Y.G.B.
(Thanks for putting me on Monty.)
In honour of my first ever visit to the Chi, here is a playlist of some of my favourite music birthed by people from this city.
Chicago sounds have always held a special place in my heart because there is a level of diversity in the stories which escape the confines of this city and enter our worlds which doesn’t seem to exist as notably anywhere else.
Chicago – Keep doing you, we love you.
The rest of you – Enjoy.
MNDSGN is a Los Angeles based Filipino/American producer on the very eclectic Stones Throw roster. While his work has a lot of the dreamy elements which have become synonymous with living and creating in LA, he delves a little deeper into darkness than many of his peers. On top of this, there is a decidedly bouncy sway to much of his output. Yawn Zen will wake you up, then rock you back into a dreamy slumber.
