Music is a massive part of my life and I spend a lot of time curating my playlists for different moods, moments, and uses. I’m sharing the love here in case they can be a soundtrack for you too.
My playlist philosophy is you should be able to simply hit shuffle and let it ride. Listening to my playlists straight through is like drinking whiskey for breakfast, in certain situations it’s the right decision, but most of the time you should avoid it. I’ll let you know when the time is right.

Songs for the cold. My winter playlist for 2021-22. Generally softer, slower sounds for those days staying warm inside.
HAL. The spiritual successor to Deep House. This tracks my current taste with electronic music, which is wide-ranging but seems to be flowing in the direction of house, melodic techno, progressive, and old school sounds.
(In Progress) 2umme2. It’s never too early to start getting this years summer playlist ready. Energy and vibes from every genre.
Camping. One of my best playlists. For sleeping in the woods with friends, morning coffee at home, or summer in general.
Summer 2.1. Last years summer playlist served me well. It’s generally a bit more uptempo than Camping, with more electronic music and energy.
Deep House. Don’t let the title fool you. I should rename this thing HAL, because it’s basically sentient at this point. More a personal history than a playlist at almost 1,000 songs. Scroll through this top to bottom and you’ll get a good idea of my journey through electronic music over the past several years. Too big for it’s own good at this point, but if you’re curious about different styles of house, melodic techno, and progressive electronic music you’ll discover a lot here.
i still go fast. Trail running is my escape and i still go fast is my guide. The second iteration of my running playlist (i go fast being the first of the line). Possibly the most important playlist I make, there are few better feelings on this planet than the right song hitting on a run in the mountains. I’ve kicked up the pace, gobbled up hills, and been brought to tears on ridgelines thanks to this one.
Old School House. Groovers channeling that disco, funky, 90s-00s house sound. Most of it isn’t from that era but its about the sound not the date.
Trampled by Bluegrass. I’ve loved bluegrass since my older sister showed me “Whiskey” by Trampled by Turtles way back in the day. A nice little collection mainly filled with a few of my favorite bands, I’ll admit I’m not super knowledgable overall here but if you’re not a bluegrass snob you’ll dig it.
My mom grounded me. When MOM AND DAD JUST DIDN’T GET IT!!
Pop Punk. A mixture of old and new featuring the likes of Mayday Parade, Knuckle Puck, Forever the Sickest Kids, and more.
Mariana Trench. For going deep. Dark. Techno. Godspeed.
solo camp night. For ethereal quiet nights alone outside when you want to feel something or need to get some hard thinking done.
