Ever wonder who’s behind the scenes, creating some of the cannabis industry’s most compelling imagery? Meet Sarah Remesch.
She’s a digital marketer, advertiser, and creative who started her career developing strategies, executing campaigns, and managing production. After her experience in-house at globally recognized agencies, Sarah founded 270M, a boutique creative and digital marketing shop which focuses on luxury and cannabis brands. As 270M expanded into the cannabis space, Viride came to fruition to live as a content hub for brands to connect with an affluent audience of consumers.
Some of her recent work can be seen in the art direction and styling of products like Cannador, MagicalButter, NugTools and DaVinci. We’re especially excited by this cool photo of the Nuggy by NugTools featured below. We asked the canna-creative to curate this week’s Weedsday Playlist and we’re enjoying every single note. You will, too.
“Tearing Me Up” by Bob Moses
I was dragged to see Bob Moses at Firefly Music Festival and then proceeded to also watch their second set because they were so damn good. I actually preferred his music in the low key setting. This song, amongst their most popular, was a jam. Whenever my music is on shuffle and it comes on, I am brought right back to the Firefly forest and the people I was dancing alongside.
“No Diggity” by Chet Faker
Who doesn’t love remastered sounds? “No Diggity” is a feel good track that I can’t help but move and sing to. I don’t recall the first time hearing Chet, but his music makes me feel like I’ve heard it forever. Whenever I’m making a playlist, this song is a staple.
“Paper Planes” by M.I.A.
One word, college. At the time, I drove a Ford Explorer and would drive around with my girlfriends. We’d dance in the car and pound on the dash when this song came on the radio. We didn’t have a care in the world and we all loved M.I.A.’s vibe and style. I’d recommend listening to this jam when the sun is pounding through the windows.
“Futures” by Zero 7
Back before Sia was Sia, there was Zero 7. One of my top five favorite groups of all time. Whatever mood I’m in, I can find a Zero 7 track and ultimately feed my mood with the lyrics and the downtempo beats. Hardships and celebrations each have a different Zero 7 song tied to them.
“Y Control” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
If you don’t know the meaning of Y Control, look it up. Karen O’s voice is unique in many ways, but her presence and the strength that comes through her mic is undeniably inspiring. The first time I saw the band live was at Googamooga in Prospect Park. I ended up losing my friends because I ate a brownie. My hands were filled with beer and food truck munchies and eventually upon being reunited, we slept through most of the show. Not my proudest moment, but I’ve luckily made up for it seeing the band on other occasions.
“Alright” by Tommie Sunshine
As mentioned, I’m a huge fan of festivals. During Miami Music Week, at Ultra music Festival, I found myself on top of a pavilion watching Fatboy Slim. About half way through his set, he played “Alright” and I was mesmerized. Of course, I had no idea what song was on, but after some intense Google searches I found the set list and my interest in Tommie Sunshine blossomed. I’d heard a lot of his remixes, but since them I’ve kept him on steady rotation and haven’t stopped listening.
