Fusion Beats by De’Anza

Described by Guitar Girl Magazine as “a Latin artist who combines hypnotic, electronic funk with alternative and psychedelic styles,” De’Anza recently released her concept EP Cosmic Dream on June 29. The collection of tracks and interludes designed to take you on a sonic journey through the various sleep cycles. To continue celebrating that release and her subsequent tour, we asked her to make us a playlist that’s as eclectic as her style. Listen here.

Says De’Anza: “I went through several playlist ideas in my head before deciding to create a list that’s as eclectic as the music I listen to. Duke Ellington said, ‘there are only two kinds of music – good and bad.’ I created a list that consists of what I believe to be good music, regardless of the genre or era. All of these artists have inspired me in some form or another.

“What you’ll get: Some classics, witchy women who I idolize, singers who blow my mind, couple deep cuts and some Latin ‘spice’ for those who want to hear something that isn’t ‘Despacito’.”
