Bliss

Genre: Alternative, New Age R&B

Mood: Laying in bed after a super productive day.

Theres a mood that’s a subset of happiness and its called bliss. Its tranquility plus happiness and its amazing. Unfortunately it doesn’t come by that often but this playlist kinda takes you there without having to actually experience it.

For Tyrone & Friends

Genre: R&B Soul

Mood: Sunday, Laundry Day

Named for Badu’s classic “Tyrone”, I have culminated the electrifying sounds of the old (Badu, Lauryn, Aaliyah) with the new (The Internet, NAO, Jhene Aiko ect.) to give that soulful proud black woman sound. Type of music you play around your kids one day so they fall in love with it too.

Genre: Alternative, Electronic, R&B/Soul

A personal favorite. This might be one of the best playlists I’ve ever put together. I”ll just say that and let you be the judge. This playlist has a very specific sound, its meant to be listened to when you’re alone.

The Funk

Genre: Funk, Electronic

The Other Side Of The Spectrum

Genre: Rap, Alternative, Electronic

Mood: The Weird Part Of YouTube

Rap has really grown into a wide spectrum of different sounds. It seems almost wrong to call both Kodak Black and Tyler the Creator rappers, but that they are. This playlist is to recognize all the weirdos on the non mainstream side of the rap spectrum.

Trance
