Oh yes, one of the best weekends of the year is so close you can almost already feel that sunburn. Whether it’s pool parties or the actual Coachella festival you’re travelling to this weekend, a soundtrack for the drive is totally essential. Local favorites Cosmic Kids (Dan Terndrup and Ron Poznansky) are two thoughtful dudes, as they really wouldn’t want your trip to suck with an insufficient selection of tunes. They just threw together a special mix for the occasion in collaboration with Well Connected and Chit Chat Records. But this mix isn’t exclusively for the nerds; there’s something in here for all lovers of good music.
When discussing the concept behind the mix, Dan explained, “The idea behind the mix was to make something for the drive down to Coachella. We teamed up with Well Connected (formerly “The Well”) and Chit Chat records to release it in CD format. James Yamagucci did the cover art and Ron's dad did the art on the back of the jacket. The mix is designed for everyone. It never gets incredibly housey. It’s something dance music and non-dance music listeners can enjoy.”
