Heads Lifestyle's 2020 Mixtape
A compilation of favourite tracks from our guest-curated playlists
Cannabis and music have long been intimate travelling companions. From the corridos of Mexican labourers who first introduced recreational marijuana to American culture to the Jazz musicians smoking reefers, through to the 60s counterculture and modern hip hop, wherever you find good music, cannabis most likely came along for the ride.
There is nothing quite as sublime as combining the right soundtrack with an elevated state of mind and then doing what you love to do.
Like Howlin’ Rain’s Ethan Miller digging deep into his vast musical intelligence to bring us some truly amazing jams.
Or the tenacious 420 attorneys at Manzuri Law letting off some steam after a long day of fighting for our rights.
Or Dave at Arrowhead Vintage sitting down at the easel to transform a castoff painting into a born-again masterpiece.
Or Dan Horne and the guys from Pacific Range getting inspired by their favourite tunes as they crafted incredible debut albums.
And the amazing breeders at Humboldt Seed Company surrounding their plants, farm and workers with musical positivity.
We love sharing guest-curated playlists. We bring the words and visuals, our guests spin the tunes and our readers immerse themselves into the experience. The collective effect allows us all to get into each other’s headspace and better understand the story.
To bid adieu to 2020, we’ve hand-picked some of our favourite tracks from these guest-curated playlists and compiled them into the Heads Lifestyle’s 2020 Mixtape.
Note: Now remember friends, opinions about music are like assholes—everyone’s got one. So please keep in mind that although not all these tunes may speak to you, in the words of a wise old woman, “There’s a seat for every ass!” Look at this mixtape like you would an all dressed pizza. If you’re fussy, pick out the toppings you don’t like and accidentally/on purpose drop them under the table for the dog to enjoy. Or, better yet, get yourself good and blazed and scarf down the entire beautiful pie!
