I keep considering doing more genre specific mixes but in the end I keep deciding I like all kinds of music and I don't want to music to be segregated like that. This mix was lot's of fun to put together. It was a pleasure listening to one of the worlds great harmonica players, discovering a guitar genius, floating away with a string quartet and pondering the words of the poignant lyricists. I enjoyed the challenge of fitting these very different styles of music together while trying to maintain a cohesive feeling to the overall mix. I'm calling this mix sign of the times. I've tried to capture a bit of what I see going on around me and what I'm feeling from being in Toronto right now. Let me know how well you think I did and how it's matching up with your experience of the city. I also recommend reading featured artist Ian Kamau's note on The Mixtape Tradition.
