Allison from Bowery Boogie had the idea to curate some music and asked if there was any interest in a project to cheer up our friend DIVA. A lot of these are tracks from some of my favorite records growing up back when it was normal to drive up and down the East Coast to go to obscure shows and skate with random kids from other states because they were your brothers. These were collected well before my first copy of Super Sharp Shooter and the endless stream of 12″ promos and mp3’s of years following. It was a good reminder of where I come from, who I am, and more importantly a collection of tracks from the heart and the days of my first pause-tapes that will hopefully make DIVA feel better.
