One of the most amazing stores I've ever visited was a The Blue Marlin, a boutique sneaker store in Rome, Italy. Everything about the store was couture including the music, which the owner and I discussed although there was a small language barrier. I've often fantasized what the music will sound like when I own my store and decided it would sound something like this, at least weekly.
After creating and enjoying, I decided it would be cool to pass this mix along to shop owners to play in their shops as well as to patrons to enjoy while perusing wares. This comes right on time as the holiday season is upon us

Episode 29 is a testament to working hard and building as well as maintaining bridges. Georgia Anne Muldrow's album Olesi made such an impression on KrisWonTwo as a youth he worked hard to build up his skills to not only meet Georgia but produce for her and become an artist on her label, SomeOthaShip. Khari grew up in a musical climate that produced substantial musical acts, but had no idea he would be involved in one of the most important soul movements of this generation. Hard work and faith are words that are thrown around often when discussing success - listen to actual stories of their application.
