fall to winter playlist now live!

currently on repeat

As we all know, I love making playlists according to the season. I find it really completes the aesthetic and vibe of the season.

I’m a little addicted to personality tests {see here & here} and a common question I see on it is something along the lines of rating yourself on a spectrum to how turned to, inspired or influenced by aesthetics or my surroundings. As a surprise to no one, every single time, I always score pretty extreme to that regard.

We know I love my sunsets, they always make me feel. I especially love the winter sunsets: they are shorter, more cooler pastel hued, & have a nostalgic haziness to them.

& so I wanted to create a playlist to occur that mood from me.

You can def tell it’s winter by the sunsets here in San Francisco. As the sunsets shift, so does my mood. As seen in my Fall playlist, it’s very much a moody vibe. In fact, as summer transitioned to Fall, it went from party to moody.

Now we are going back to party… but not just any type of party: DISCO!!

My winter playlist here is a mix of nu-disco & groovy house.

A bit moody house with groovy disco & downtempo as it transitions to connect to winter.

What’s really fun about this playlist is that it literally transitions from fall to winter. Press play & you’ll see what I’m saying

Like my other transition mix, this one’s a bit shorter than my full playlists so think of this as a long mix. If I was a DJ this is what I’d mix lol. Some standout songs are:

The Way You Move (Greg Wilson Remix) by Social Disco Club {always so picky on what I do as my first & last song on these!! this totally sets the mood on what to expect}

Haunts by Bearcubs {this song is seriously a mood – I can’t begin to explain it, you just need to listen! It feels like a dark, cold starry December night}

Breezeblocks (Tinlicker Remix) by Alt-J {part 1 of the transition – it reminds me so much of this special moment here and was the perfect way to break the moodiness from Fall}

DO THE ASTRAL PLANE by TOSHIO MATSUURA GROUP {part 2 of the transition! This ends with the moodiness & brings us to the jazzy disco. this is one of my absolute fav songs, the way it transitions is just insane}

Do It Now by Dubtribe Sound System {the last song!! This downtempo jam ends the mix. I love how it unfurls & it’s a good 13 minutes long.}

I love making these seasonal playlists. I find it helps me go into the next few months with a little more intention. I also do it visually on Pinterest. Check out my _fall board to see what’s inspiring me for the next few months ahead. I’ll always have the current and next month going to keep the aesthetics going since they inspire me so much in case you wanna be up to date with my seasonal aesthetics 😉

Enjoy!! Any playlists I should check out? What’s your end of fall vibe?
