Hello, my devoted music lovers. Do you know what July means to us?
It’s our anniversary, made for you and me. YUPP! July (The 26th to be exact) marks 12 years of Jon ALi’s Blog!! Twelve years ago on this #blessed month, I decided to share my love for music and all the ups and downs that come with it on what is, truly, my everything… my baby, my escape, my labor of love, my crispy croissant, my casa. You get the gist, right? First and foremost I wanted to thank YOU all for the endless love and support over these past few years. The emails, the (mostly) sweet comments, the Facebook shares, the re-tweets, the recommendations… EVERYTHING! Seriously. The fact that there’s a bunch of you from all around the world devoting time out of your day to read the silly things I have to say about music is an insane concept to grasp. I do not take it for granted.
So with all that said, I now have a special treat for you all: The Jon ALi: Dance Summer Playlist 2018 – it’s finally here!
Yes, “technically” the first day of Summer was a month ago (June 21), but I like to take my time.. you should all know this by now. ANYWAY: For this 25-track collection, I wanted to try and please everyone and all their summer music needs while still remaining a fresh vibe throughout. The result is an eclectic and lively collection of songs that I’m super pumped to share with you all. There’s a little something for everyone here.
As for the Dance Summer Playlist‘s accompanying artwork (displayed above and below), I teamed up with the sweetest angel prince: The very talented NYC-based Nicolas Bloise aka Papi Prada, who along with the help of my friends – BEAU By Sky Vargas and Martin Gregory Jerez – helped make my motel nighttime summer fantasy come true. It doesn’t just end here either, we have more moments coming so make sure to keep your eyes on my Twitter and Instagram accounts.
Happy 12-Year Anniversary babes, I love you all so very much. Thank you, thank you!
