Hey, folks! I'm back with another mix! :D It's short, but sweet. Four or five minutes is a really long time for a hip hop track, nowadays. Most are like one to three minutes tops. Since I didn't really feel like mixing 14 tracks or whatever just to get like 30 or 40 minutes, I decided to value quality over quantity.
With my first hip hop mix, I focused on the story and the journey, so the track order was more important than beat matching. However, this time around, I focused a lot more on my transitions, so this mix shows a lot more technical ability. I just hope that the story didn't get lost in the fray. =)
These particular tracks kept me super chilled out when I was on vacation in Costa Rica, hence the title of the mix. Each song takes me back to that amazing time in my life, so they bring a lot of joy. <3
I hope you can feel a little bit of that happiness, too! Click here* to download. Sit back, relax and enjoy!
