Floops Festival Episode 03 (#FF03) is 26 song podcast curated by my own manager, OA Management. This mix follows from the mellow vibe set in #FF02. I asked her why she chose such sad songs to which she remarked that she just liked eerie music. Of course, if you grew in late 90s and 2000s, these songs ithinould be of no surprise to you. Many of these songs don’t depend on the beat but have powerful lyrics and deep meanings. My pick of the mix will definitely by Sweet Dreams by the Eurythmics. I love the synthesizer and Annie Lennox is one of the best contralto voices of all time. When I asked my manager what is her favorite song, she stated both the original and Lost Frequencies Remix of Armin van Buuren’s In and Out of Love…arguably his best song to date.
