Summer is finally ahead; is time to shed all worries and complications and be reborn with the burning sun rising like a mighty phoenix. This installment of The Savvy and the Chic comes as an oasis, a mental retreat from a personal hiatus of much earthly turbulence. A sonic beach of clear skies, sandy shores, and purifying waters to cleanse the body and soul.
I thank everyone who lent a hand in the production of this album or inspired it in some shape or form. Thanks to the wonderful artists over at ccmixter.org who make these series possible with their wonderful work. Last but not least – Thank you for listening! I hope this offering finds you in a Buddha state of mind where every misdeed towards life, nature and love is forgotten if not forgiven; and the good in all things is treasured.

For my friends at ccmixter - This is a special album compiled from my favorite tracks out of the "Secret Mixter: Luck of The Draw Event 2011" over at ccmixter.org
Description: As a regularly recurring ccMixter remix event, the Secret Mixter is where individual mixters sign-up to remix and be remixed - in secret.
Listening to each track reveals each mixter's musical cards - highlighting both producer and his/her 'luck of the draw'. The Secret Mixter is an example of musical collaboration at its best.

So I’ll tell you the tale… It all starts back in the Hard Rock days-Yeh! The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL-days. I use to stay there once a year because of work. All expenses paid, everything I wanted to eat & drink, sexy behind-lounge & pool area; and most sexy of all-my very own palatial suite [don’t mind if I brag/it was to die for I tell you!] Anywho! So late night, when I was off the hook with my job duties during the stay at the hotel, I’d chill at the pad with a few lucky friends I would invite over for that year. We’d dress-up fabulously for no particular reason, mix some cocktails, and get the party started.
Don’t worry, here is where the music part comes in…
So even though I would always bring my I-pod, packed with the smoothest lounge for my “me- time”, we demanded a different type of lounging music once a year in such occasion. The type only a Hard Rock Hotel’s random playlist coming through hotel speakers can provide. Oh man, was it good music! It would get us dancing, jumping, spilling our drink doing a line dance, singing our lungs out; or finally winding-down to reminisce on the good old days. Mind you, the music was not all Rock & Roll, nor was it the lounge you would usually ummm… lounge to. It was a blend of the stuff you’d get at a bitching runway show or perfume commercial. The kind of music that speaks more to that ego wanting to come out and strut all over the place ala “Say something!”
More recently, I’ve spent much of the last 2 years involved with fashion & glamour; whether it is through work or getting sneaked in as whatever onto the runway. Delicious house/chillout music is not all that plays there. Foremost, is usually personality which takes center stage. Much like in a TV-commercial, a story about the individuals, the fashion, the perfume, the moment, is being told through music heightening these essential elements. The tracks, usually ranging from delicate to loud and filled with attitude, evoke a reality that although often glamorized stage moments in time we’ve all been in. This is the music compilation I set out to do in this seventh entry of The Savvy & the Chic--A bit of those Hard Rock nights, the runway, and the occasional TV-commercial fashion porn , all mixed in for the pure joy of being____________ [you fill in the blank].
I want to thank everyone involved with this release who contributed their music, art, and ideas to make this guilty pleasure of mine a reality.
