Tuesday Turn-On: Electronic Summer

Tuesday Turn-On: Electronic Summer

It’s nothing new to say that summer is the time when electronic music booms.  Festivals are everywhere, and DJ’s are on every corner.  This week's playlist is inspired by just that; hot summer nights, shakin' it to your favorite electronic masterminds.  I know when I’m in Brooklyn, and the sun is setting, you can always find me getting down to Dirtyfinger’s latest mix.  He throws an awesome party, locals in the area; get.on.that.

Rehab Workout: Knee Stabilizing Moves

Rehab Workout: Knee Stabilizing Moves

Today I sit down to discuss one of the most frequent video requests I get: rehabilitation workouts.  My badass co-worker, Laura Crago, is currently in recovery from a DOUBLE knee surgery.  But that doesn’t stop her from getting her workouts in.  She’s making the best of it, and blogging her entire experience.  Check out her blog here.  Laura shares her favorite moves for rehabbing them ol’ knees!

Tuesday Turn-On: SXSW Picks

South By South West (SXSW), a music conference originally intended to feature local musicians and unsigned artists, has now turned into a corporate sponsored week-long party.  This year is bigger than ever, thanks to the iTunes festival, Lady Gaga and secret shows by JBeibs.  It's hard to sift through the hype and find up&coming acts on their grind, driving broken-down vans, schlepping their own equipment and promoting their music over youtube and soundcloud pages.  I happen to know a few incredibly talented artists fitting just this description, thus I present you with my "SouthBy" picks of 2014.

Enjoy the party and be safe, kids! xx

Tuesday Turn-On: Fever Dream

Every night I've been chasing warm weather and sunshine in my sleep to get me through this season.  Here's a dreamy hour long playlist for some warmer nights, even if you're spending it under the covers.  Step Rockets Kisser, Tegan and Sara Closer,  Young Summer Fever Dream and Laura Welsh Undiscovered are my personal favorites.  Enjoy.

You're the only one that I've got. But I can't get lost in you. I can't get lost with you.  I can't be someone that I'm not... t0 make it up to you. You're undiscovered. I wanna see the rest of you.  I can't get next to you.

Tuesday Turn-On: The Hustle

Something about the winter makes me put my nose to the grindstone. When cold wind blows, I just tuck my head, button up and get down to business. And by business- I mean passion: music, writing, creating.   The first song in this playlist pretty much sums it up:  Money On My Mind.  Sam Smith's gold-dipped voice croons: I do it for, I do it for the love...
So enjoy this Tuesday Turn-On:  The Hustle,  and get down to something you love.

Audible Treats

20111102-IMG_0546

It's that time of year when you can't go anywhere without facing brownies, cookies or a bowl full of red and green M&M's!  Stay calm.  Go back to your laptop, slip on your headphones and delight yourself in some audible goodies instead.  Put them on your iPod and look forward to your workout! It'll be 6 o' clock before you know it and the whole world awaits--- far more thrilling than a 5min sugar high.

All of these songs are on iTunes.  Go nuts!

This is the FULL Diplo EP but you will recognize the very first song, Express Yourself, from my spin playlists... ("and they mad cuz I'm hot and they wish they was!")
