Cookin' with Bae

     “Cookin’ with Bae” provides an irresistible playlist that have some of the most flavorful tracks on wax: Stevie will set the tone by sensualizing your meal prep, Dean Martin will fluff your infatuation with your partner into the bright blue sky, and Snoop Dogg and Skateboard P will get you groovin’ straight to the main course. This playlist is the perfect way to decompress after your day and guarantee the kisses from the boo that you deserve. Enjoy your meal and the music!


     The freak in you will not be afraid to come out once you start playing this playlist – these are some of the most sensual tracks on any DSP. Any sex playlist is incomplete without staples such as Ginuwine and The Weeknd and this playlist is no exception. But who would’ve thought Jimi Hendrix could stir up some of your deepest, darkest desires? I’m counting on you to keep this playlist on repeat throughout the whole night … if you know what I mean!

lavishly paid

     Roll out the red carpet to the freshest caviar and gold bottles of champagne for this playlist! “lavishly paid" was curated to host an autumnal gala in 2019 to accentuate the formality of the occasion. The proscuitto-wrapped asparagus was exquisite, the delectable, chocolate cake was savored, and no one expected Amy Winehouse and Young Dolph to sound as good as they did together on this playlist. Don’t wait, go buy some caviar and champagne and blast these tracks!


     Mezcál has a storied history coming from many different regions within Mesoamerica. Recently, the beverage has seen a rise in popularity in the US and who can blame us? It’s flavor can range from smokey, floral, fruity, and even earthy … and this playlist is no different. From Little Richard to KAYTRANADA, the playlist has a wide range of vivrant dance tracks to get down to through the night while artists like Snoop Dogg and Freddie Gibbs flare up the bravado of the party. There are plenty of newer artists on this playlist as well, like Aminé, Gunna, and Pardison Fontaine, so the vibe is familiar, yet sharp and fresh. Can’t get enough of the playlist? Make a mezcal margarita to go along with it!

ohio gunnas

     One part of being a music lover means indulging in not only the regionally or nationally known artists but the local music scene, too. Ohio has rich pool of talent in all genres but in this playlist I decided to focus on rappers from or based in Ohio. Some of these artists I learned about while being a college radio DJ such as Duby Rodgers and Bizzoe. Others, I’ve come to know from places I’ve lived in Ohio and have followed their musical journey through the years, such as Intellect and Weston. Regardless, all of these recording artists bring their own vibe, rhymes, and flow that I love and I hope you do as well! (Also, Major S/O to I'mfromCLE for being a great source for finding local rap acts!)

swing it

     I created this playlist several years ago with one thing in mind: to absolutely shred the dance floor. Some of the selections on this playlist, like Michael Jackson and Diana Ross, are inspired by my mother. She would love to play their music and encourage me to be silly and dance, which was hard for me since I was incredibly shy. As I got older, I found newer artists like Anderson .Paak and Jordan Rakei, who made hypnotizing grooves that made me want to feed the inner child in me. This playlist is one of my favorite playlists because of its wide flavor of music for everybody so don’t be shy: blow out your speakers and dance your face off!
