Monday Music :: the ”New-New” Playlist

The weather has finally switched into its rightful season and it feels like Summertime Chi is closer to making its debut.

The city-folks’ energy is starting to thicken and many of us are craving that ‘new feeling’.

Whether it’s new city adventures and festivals, creative projects, health & fitness goals or…a new boo-thang, I know I’m 100% ready to indulge. Push through it all, with fun and enjoyment.

No inhibitions.

So, to welcome this long-awaited season of “Chicago new-new”, I want to share a playlist I created. New artists, old-school artists, and Chicago Artists — each give me that transitional, fresh, nostalgic, anticipating, motivating, and free feeling.

And of course, the music sounds like Friday nights in Chicago — parties, date nights, relaxation, feelin ya’ self, shakin off the drama, meditation… it’s a variation of music styles for all to enjoy.
