The Impulse Mix!

So, today is the 5 year anniversary of my project, "Impulse." Wow. When I made this project, I was going through a lot, from problems with love, family, school, growing up and my self-perception. It's wild thinking about all of the adventures that have happened in the last 5 years that have shaped me and allowed me to grow, but THIS HERE is a glowing dot on the map of where my journey has taken me thus far. I made this as a means to express myself at a time when I felt silent and it was a relief to know I wasn't the only one! Much love to everyone who helped to create this, to everyone who listened (and the ones that still listen) and to everyone who purchased a copy! I love you all!  NOW, to celebrate this occasion, I put together this instrumental mix! I recently got my hands on some old beats that were made during the making of "Impulse" (2010 - early 2011) and figured I'd let you all hear and enjoy some of them! These were beats that helped me find direction in my sound at the time and they also laid a sonic foundation to some of my later projects (you'll hear some traces of Salvation, Aloha Mahalo and even beats that would've made up YIAN 2, if I ever did it haha)! Click play and add some flavor to 20 minutes of your day! Enjoy!
