If there’s one thing consistent about Marc Johnson (besides his amazing skateboarding) is that he always goes above and beyond. Ask him for a video part – he’ll give you one that’s three songs long. Ask him to do an interview – he’ll write you a book. Ask him to do a flip trick – he’ll give you a double flip. He’s a serial over-producer, so when we finally asked him for a mix it’s no surprise that he sent us two of them. Like the lovable schizoid that he is, MJ’s selections are two sides of the same coin. One of them is all fun party jams, and the other is somber and thoughtful – the party and the hangover.
For the 47th installment of our Jenkem Mix series, everyone’s favorite skater came through with a mix to pour yourself a glass of wine and dance in your boxers to.
