Cloves is inspired by the sounds of Brazilian jazz music. The plucked, mellow guitar lines, combined with the fact that my family constantly plays bossa nova music in the house, makes the playlist feel homey, warm and a little musty - just like the smell of cloves.
features: Devendra Banhart, Arthur Verocai, and Diane Tell
Good mix of all eras of hip-hop (although bias towards conscious rap and jazz rap). Some obscure gems but also some all time greats.

I just moved into a new apartment in New York City and I’ve had a great time just blasting my music in the last couple of days. This playlist is mostly made up of songs that I found during quarantine and made me think of the city while I was back home. Now that I’m here, these will be the songs I’ll be banging for the next couple weeks.

This was a playlist I made where anyone could add a song they felt like related! It was awesome and so fun to know so many people have the same experience with music that I do, because the playlist is very circa 2012 middle school dance party vibes.
features: House Mafia, Timbaland, and Zedd
This is a playlist dedicated to sparking those nostalgic memories within a Latin individual, anything from listening to mami’s and papi’s music in the car, to enjoying these jams at the carne asada, and everything in between. When quarantine hit, I started TikTok and eventually made videos featuring these songs in hopes of having the viewer’s mind go back to the good times.”
