cloudplums of marshed mellowness


One of my best buddies in the whole world, and one of the most inspirational dudes I know, is my main man, Prince Klassen. When he's behind the decks I just stand there in awe. The dude's DJ style is like watching butter melt in a heated skillet. Actually, homeboy's entire style is like butter, sweet sweet melting butter. 

He's been djing forever, we all know that, but he's had an amazing year this past year, and the rest of the country is starting to see just how crispy fresh big PK is, and I cant wait to see where he ends up. 

Yesterday he sent me a link to his new mix, and it's a beautiful compilation of tracks that make him feel all fall-like deep inside his plaid button down. He made the mix for a new blog that he is a contributor to called cloudplum which is becoming a new favorite blog of mine. 

Curated by Elaine Lee, cloudplum focuses heavily on design with little hints of music, and food wafting in and out.  Lee just made the move up to NYC, so if you live up there, keep your eye out for her. 

Peep the mix, its a great listen while you work sort of thing.
