Sky Society joins the This Is Home series and crafts an enchanting mix that will perk up your ears and ease you into the week!
Sky Society is a project that was brought to life in 2013 by mastermind Juany Santos, who set grand intentions from the beginning. Founded on the values of creating higher ways of thinking, living, and connecting via music, arts, and humanity he’s gone on to build a loyal community and brand that honors the power of music while consistently growing and transforming the project since inception.
Born in Queens, Santos was inspired by music on the radio early on in his life. Whether it was Merengue, Salsa, Bachata, Funk, Disco, Pop, or Alternative, there was something about music that ignited a fire in him to explore it more deeply. In his teen years, he began to learn to beat-match and mix, which led him to chopping samples, producing his own mixtapes, and diving into aspects of music theory to sharpen his abilities. All these experiences and influences have culminated into what Sky Society is today.
Now living in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Sky Society recently collaborated with Ehiorobo on “Holy Time.” A chill tune that straddles the line of R&B and lo-fi hip-hop, it draws listeners in with Ehiorobo’s crooning vocals and keeps you engaged with a melancholic beat. The track is a stark representation of Sky Society’s influences as it combines elements from across the electronic spectrum to experiment and create something fresh.
To celebrate the release, Sky Society joined the This Is Home series to put his eclectic sound is on full display. He takes listeners on a vibe-inducing, 30-minute journey and weaves together a mix full of diversity. It begins with the aforementioned “Holy Time” and transitions into a collection of funky tunes that will get your tapping toes and energy levels rising. Perfect for listening to while working at home or just relaxing as the day passes away, it’s a solid addition to your collection of mixes to play out this summer.
