In honour of the gorgeous spring weather we’ve been finally getting here in Toronto—*cue prayer hands emoji*—I present to you an hour of warm weather house tracks selected and mixed by me. Good music knows no season, and if I’m being honest, a little snow never stopped me from indulging in Balearic grooves in the middle of February. But when the sun is shining and the breeze smells like fresh grass, the music is transformative. Like getting my back rubbed on a lawn chair set in the middle of the dance floor.

Accompanying this mix is a series of photographs collected from The Ardorous photographers. Started by Petra Collins, the web collective is entirely made up of female artists and photographers. Any moment when you’re in need of some inspiration in your life, or if you just feel like looking at kickass work, hop on over to their site (linked above). Good luck not sucked in for an entire night like I did.

These photos were selected for their girly, warm weather appeal. The irony is that today’s mix, unlike my monthly radio show on TRP, actually includes no female producers at all. It wasn’t a conscious decision. But as I’ve come to learn, decisions of this nature have already been made for us.
