Ever since Spotify announced Spotify Play, we’ve been chomping at the bit for an excuse to embed an awesomely themed playlist somewhere on Hive. But we can’t think of a better day than today, April 20th, to do some original programming. If you aren’t watching the Bob Marley documentary on Facebook (or writing your own Marley doc for that matter), there is a good chance you will spend tonight glued to the couch with friends, listening to great tracks between snack runs and video games tournaments. That’s where we come in. While the playlist below isn’t explicitly ganja-related, we would definitely use words like “hazy,” “cinematic” and, uh, “weedy” to describe it. Basically, we wanted to capture the essence of today without pandering to any explicit (and illegal unless you have a valid prescription and medical condition, etc) themes. Below, stream joints from hip-hop producers Flying Lotus, Lunice and Jonwayne, electro-tinged tracks from Skrillex, araabMUZIK and Crystal Castles, classic cuts from DJ Shadow and the Avalanches, plus some indie-friendly Caribou and Grimes. Enjoy!
