GOODS | Guest Playlist A “Music Direction” Collaboration With Artist Jasper Sloan Yip

Guest Playlist ~ Jasper Sloan Yip ~ from Music Direction on 8tracks Radio.

The GOODS from Music Direction

Vancouver, BC | For this March playlist edition, Music Direction has teamed up with local, award-winning musician Jasper Sloan Yip. The team recently met up with Jasper at their Railtown studio and the idea of a playlist collaboration was born. The playlist is built around the inspiration for his album Foxtrot (2013). Here’s what Jasper has to say about it:

“In some way or another, each of these songs influenced the outcome of Foxtrot. Each song contains a tone, rhythm, texture, lyric, or some other unnameable thing that caught my ear and gave me something to chase. And though I likely never caught whatever it was I was chasing, I am indebted to each of these songs nonetheless (or at least my album is). But who wants to catch up with the thing they’re chasing anyways? Don’t we all know how that ends?”
