Alvin Allure – Stuck


Sometimes kids dream of love but get stuck in their ways…The people that love us can be a catalyst for growth as they push you to move closer to your goals, but at the same time they can also be a catalyst for stagnation. Often times in relationships, we can actually be our own worst enemies, and our old ways can keep us from moving forward even though we say we know better. Insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, and there’s nothing that can make a person crazier than being in love. We’ll keep trying until we break the habit…until we’re no longer stuck in our ways…and until we allow ourselves to change for the better.

So Close to Summer 008 – “Til Infinity”

soclosetosummer008-tv-size

Music is meant to be created, curated, and shared. It’s been a mission of mine to do just that through Sound of February and I’m always looking for new ways to expand how we share sounds and the feelings that accompany them.

Our 8th episode is called “Til Infinity”, which will take you through a journey of sounds ranging from old school hip hop, to new school sounds and will explore a number of sonic detours through the process. The YouTube version of this list will also feature our first guest DJ mix provided by Bay Area DJs The CME and Shea Butter. As always, Subscribe to the YouTube channel for more vibes and start the dialogue in the comments box below the main video (or let the tweets fly).

Our 7th episode is called “The Seventh Letter”, which is a list that makes us feel bossed up but laid back.

Music is meant to be created, curated, and shared. It’s been a mission of mine to do just that through Sound of February and I’m always looking for new ways to expand how we share sounds and the feelings that accompany them. This is why I’m excited to partner with KiaNaturally.com and Niven Quaye on a biweekly YouTube playlist series called “So Close To Summer”.

Our 5th episode is called “The Bounce”, which is exactly what it sounds like – this list is all about songs that have a bounce in them. These songs will make you bob your head and zone out and can also make you take off your cool and hit the dance floor. As always, Subscribe to the YouTube channel for more vibes and start the dialogue in the comments box below the main video (or just let the tweets fly).
