velvet 4/12/23

thanks so much for tuning into velvet today! last week was a bit of an experimental twist on my normal neo-soul programming, so today i’m getting back to the essentials of r&b and neo-soul. this includes some staples and legends in the scene from around the world (namely london, melbourne, denmark, la, nyc, …) including potatohead people, kaidi tatham, dj harrison, madison mcferrin (bobby’s daughter!), athletic progression, and mndsgn. the feel today is smooth and thought-provoking, the qualities which, in my opinion, make the genre so appealing. hope you enjoy!
