It’s funny how random music discovery can be. In my quest to find and collect tracks and mixes, I go digging deep within Soundcloud and other streaming services. This time, an event notification on Facebook for a beach party led me to what is arguably one of the better beginner mixes I have heard in awhile. As my eyes scrolled down the lineup, one name popped out at me: miko marie. Excited to see what she has been up to as a dj, I visited her soundcloud and low and behold, I found A Reason To Forgive.
A lot of beginner mixes have issues with beatmatching and transitions, but being beginner mixes I cut that person a little slack. I appreciate that miko marie took care to not just put out any old thing. The track selection speaks volumes of her taste in music as well. There is a little surprise that comes a few minutes before the end, fitting expertly into the flow of the mix. This mix can be enjoyed early in the morning, during a busy afternoon, or in the midst of an unfolding evening. You can check out her style, taste, and other mixes on her Soundcloud.
Miko is an artist, model, and photographer so performance and capturing the best out of every moment is in her blood. I first encountered her as an entertainer, but she is so much more than an entertainer. If you would like to see miko marie, she will be playing live at KOE Presents: Free Music Festival and Beach Clean Up that will be taking place March 26-27. Click here for the event page.
