I'm a writer. I'm a film editor. I'm a DJ.

Music tells a story. What happens when you craft a narrative with music and compose it together with visuals and words?

You get these mixtapes, a collection I've crafted together.

These are my love letters.

Dr. Chillgood

"Making a playlist is a delicate art. It's like writing a love letter. Or better, in a way. You get to say what you want to say without actually saying it. You get to use someone else's poetry to express how you feel.

 

And then there are the rules. It's got to be entertaining. It's got to tell a story. It can't be too obvious, but it can't be too obscure, either. You can't double up on songs by the same artists unless, of course, that's your theme.

Anyway. A good compilation, like so many things in life, is hard to do."
