We don't mess around when it comes to jams. So when we were looking for something new to listen to (on repeat) we knew we had to tap the very best. Enter: Miss Harley Viera Newton, who happily served up a new playlist of classic faves. HVN and track list partner, DJ Ross One titled their collaborative compilation "Homefriends" and enlisted the help of Alexa Chung, Sean Kinney, Josephine de la Baume, Stauds, and Derek Blasberg. The result is a laid-back, hour-long series of tunes that melt into each other as easily as you hope your home friends will mix with your new friends at your big summer BBQ. Feel us?
Harley does. "Homefriends is at times a coming of age mix — lots of songs make us super nostalgic for our teenage years. There's nothing like your friends from home and the soundtrack you shared. We wanted to make something a little different from the typical playlist you'd hear at a club. These are our favorite songs that we've been playing for years, and we wanted to put a few of our secret gems out there along with the classics," she told us. Classics, indeed — it's already a major hit here at R29 HQ and we'd hedge our bets its soon to get some serious stars on your Walkman iPod smart phone, too. Check out the complete list of tunage below, and listen on, dudes, listen on.
