Someone asked me the other day, “What is your favorite style of music?”

and I replied, “Anything that is beautiful.”

The best part of discovering music always leads to the advantage of getting to listen to something you get to enjoy over and over and over again. For the past month, I have really immersed myself into listening to some of the best sounds in my opinion that are out there.  Here is a collection of songs that are calming in their own way. Feel free to enjoy the mix at this link here in full or individally below:

Slow Magic is known for his/her chillwave sound but remains anonymous, always hiding behind an African tribal mask while on stage.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
