A mid-tempo mix of rare groove, soulful edits, and quirky beats. Opening with a rework of Bill Withers' "Lovely Day" — the mix was recorded on truly a lovely day in Joy's back yard at her annual Beats & BBQ party. On through classics like Larry Young's Fuel "Turn off the lights." Some globe hopping to Brazil w/ Tim Maia's "O Caminho do Bem" then to Israel w/ Ofra Haza's "Im Nin'alu." Then back to the funk with a cover/edit of William De Vaughn's "Be thankful for what you got", which is always a good reminder.
"And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."- Desiderata by Max Ehrmann
