Summer 2016 Mixtape


Summer Mixtape 2016 — Wit & Delight

The heat is on! I hope you’re all making the most of these hot and steamy nights this summer. Every year I like to put together a mixtape of summer “anthems…” you know…. the songs that will make me think of this exact time and place years after 2016 has passed. With all the changes we have going on right now, Joe and I have been trying to find a balance of relaxing and listening to chill music without feeling 100 years old. Some favorite artists have been Chance The Rapper, Maxwell, FKA twigs, Drake. This playlist is definitely best listened to at night with the windows open. Perhaps you’re enjoying cold drinks on friend’s patio, sitting across a bonfire, or taking drives with the top (or sunroof) down.

Whatever you’re doing this summer, I hope this mix adds a little cherry on top your summer sundae.

  • Summer Friends (feat. Jeremih & Francis & The Lights) – Chance The Rapper, Jeremih, Francis
