Who are you where are you from and what do you do?

How does Music integrate into your life beyond it just being your job?
It flows into everything I do.. As the counterpart and catalyst of so many experiences in my life. It’s rare that music isn’t playing in my world… and if so, then it’s generally a chosen silence, or time connecting to other sounds of the sea / nature.
What’s the vibe of the playlist you made for Madre?
Theres so many directions I could go when making a mix…. into deep ambient worlds, which I swim in the most, or african, or indian, and indonesian tracks… all the things I generally listen to outside more electronic leanings.
For this playlist I chose a collection of songs that felt both engaging and deep as listens in the latter world. A downtempo set for movement at home or with friends, or just time in reflection. It feels like it can suit both.
If you were to share a glass of mezcal with anyone present or past, who would it be?
I just had a thought of sitting down with some deep spiritual teachers over a mezcal… Dalai Lama, Ram Dass… feels against the grain in just the right way… I’m pretty sure they would be down… Or maybe a sip with Bjork. I’d like to explore her mind.
