I have no idea where March went, but April is fast approaching and I'm not one bit mad about it because that means the inaugural Art of Cool Festival is that much closer to happening. We've been following the birth of this new music festival in Durham, North Carolina from its Kickstarter campaign to the official announcement, and now it's mere weeks away on Friday, April 25th and Saturday, April 26th. SoulBounce is proud to be one of the media sponsors of the Art of Cool Festival, and we're gearing up for a fun weekend seeing many of our favorite artists perform and discovering many more.
We're already pre-gaming thanks to DJ Jamad who's whipped together two Art of Cool Festival music mixes to prep everyone for the great artists and even greater grooves that are on tap. The official DJ of the Art of Cool Festival went in on both mixes and blended together soul, jazz, hip hip and more by artists such as Thundercat, Bilal, Amel Larrieux, Alice Smith, KING, Laura Reed and North Carolina's own The Foreign Exchange. Make haste to download these mixes from SoundCloud where you can also peep the tracklists for both. If you haven't already done so, you may want to cop your Art of Cool Festival tickets ASAP as well.
