I’ve been digging in some friends archives for musical gems. To celebrate, they have also sent me their answers to my Q+A. Let the light in and find peace in your day.

The context for this playlist is fairly simple: sunrise in the A.M. and sundown at the start of the afternoon: time has never been so dragged. An evolving twist between one sunny Portuguese shore and a steel-shot in Berlin amid electronic neon smoke. This playlist is set as a loop between waking up shaking in the sheets still in an industrial dream. Press play on his mix and take in his Q+A.  
︎︎︎ Playlist

Q: Tell me three things you are obsessed with right now and why. Film, documentary, music, DJ mix, book, blog, recipe, drink. Whatever you want to share with the world.
A: 1. Negronis. I’ve been in an ongoing obsession with this cocktail since my last trip to Brno (Czech Republic) back in 2018. Somehow this cocktail gravitated into my lockdowns in an unexpected twist of memories and multiculturalism.
2. Poetry. I’ve fallen in a downward spiral of Portuguese literature initiated by Mario Cesariny, Ana Hatherly, Andrei C. Faria, and Miguel Cardoso — the horizon between the words
somehow manages to keep the clouds in place.
3. Pedro Almodóvar. While keeping Lynch as a background tone (namely Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive have made me sane in-betweens), Almodóvar’s obsession with beautifully written scripts is still able to keep me romantically flying overseas.

Q: Who has inspired you recently?
A: Hello Everyone, This is Your Daily Dose of Internet.

Q: What is the color of money?
A: Clean sheets. Waking up in New York and not knowing where you left that fucking jacket last night. Western Union. Everything in place: the river and the world. Tomorrow again. To bite, again, to bite. The arterial beauty of 7 p.m. Flexing the bones. Another winter. Multiple Colours, Body twists, various inflammations. Bitcoin and talent.
