Much to my dismay, the Quiet Storm genre seems to be fading into oblivion. That is the case, here in the city of Los Angeles. Our one remaining Quiet Storm radio station has slowly sold out to commercialized and homogenized music. Instead of listening to the sweet sounds of The Brand New Heavies, Sade, Marvin Gaye, Erykah Badu, Steely Dan, and Spyro Gyra, we now get constant bombardment of top 40 pop hits like Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", Pharrell's "Happy", Katy Perry's "Roar", and Taylor Swift's "Shake It Off."
Thankfully there's Spotify. Here are 4 playlists for your listening pleasure:
If you love the genres presented here, then perhaps these playlists will provide you many hours of entertainment. If you like these playlists, then feel free to follow the lists.
All lists are works in progress, so they may change from time to time as I discover new music. I have another 50+ Ipod playlists that I'm converting over, so I will publish more lists in time.
Enjoy and thanks for the read. RIP Quiet Storm, Long Live the Perfect Storm.
