Skratch Bastid & Cosmo Baker – Songs We Listened To A Lot In 2014

Posted by: Hans Gruber on 20/01/2015 in Mixes, Music

Songs-We-Listened-To-A-Lot-In-2014-Cover-450x450

The third installment of the Skratch Bastid & Cosmo Baker‘s year end mix series. Songs We Listened To A Lot In 2014 is two and a half hours of just great music curated by two amazing djs.

Another year, another soundtrack.

As you may know by now, this mix and series is different. It’s a snapshot of the year, but from a different perspective than your typical year end mix or list. It is not a definitive list of the biggest tunes that came out in 2014, yet our goal is similar – move the listener (whether it’s your heart or your ass), and tell a complete story.

It’s a story of how music that we all listen to becomes this intangible soundtrack to the experiences of the lives we lead. The same way certain smells trigger memories, songs serve the same purpose. And those songs are not bound by release schedules or media exposure. They hit us when they hit us, and become ours. This mix is about THAT.

Listening to music is catharsis. It’s something we need and that we take for granted. We love music, what it means to us, what it does for us, how it makes us feel. This mix is a true labor of love – we hope you enjoy it!

The first Soulection White Label of 2015 comes courtesy of Baltimore musician/vocalist Chris McClenney, and it’s a soulful affair to say the least. Stream it below and get the free download here. For more editions in the Soulection White Label series, see our previous posts.

We’re happy to announce our first white label of 2015 by the muti-instrumentalist and vocalist Chris McClenney. His diversity is what sets him apart. It’s amazing to watch him find his sound direction/rhythm. We’ve watched him experiment with bass heaters, house music, funk, and other styles, but what we love most is that all of his production always has soul in it.

Lately he’s been on a roll with his production and singing. There’s only a few people who can make music that gives us the feeling that D’Angelo does and this white label by Chris does exactly that.

We’re excited to see where Chris goes from here on out. He has our support 1000%. Enjoy and spread this to all music lovers.
