Surface to Air: “FRIDAY I’M IN LOVE” XXXI by Vashtie

Surface to Air has a weekly post titled “Friday I’m in Love.”  It first started as a post to highlight a playlist that reflected the then mood of the Surface to Air office. The mix has now grown to a weekly series where a tastemaker delivers their own playlist of love songs. This week’s mix is Va$htie’s and it comes featuring tracks from Sade, Frank Ocean, Miguel, The Black Keys, DMX and more. Check out the playlist below and listen to the mix here.

Artist, DJ, video director, fashion designer and party promoter. That’s what Va$htie does. And she does it pretty judging by the look of her partners in crime: she directed videos for Solange Knowles, Kendrick Lamar, our special friends Kid Cudi and Theophilus London, brought out Jay-Z, Dave Chappelle and Jermaine Dupri to her infamous “1992” NY monthly party…

In the midst of her various activities, Va$htie pressed pause to deliver 15 wonderful love tracks and answers to our Questionnaire (online next tuesday).
