As y’all already know, we fuck with the Genesis crew. We’ve worked on many different projects together in the past, and we’re always rooting for the Seattle homies. Recently, Elise Hedge, who you should remember from our foray into podcasting, came out with a Venture collaboration, shining light on their artistic talents.

Before you rip apart your desk, bed, etc. looking for your airpods I want to try something new and offer you three things this mix would be good for. Number one: droning out the silence of a public bathroom during a… Number two: pissing off your neighbor who revved their engine at 5am yesterday. Number three: brightening an Uber drivers day when he begrudgingly gives you the aux.
Download the mix here, while you can.
