AM Mix: WhitneyAbstraKt – “A Night With Leyla”

A Night With Leyla

Today we bring to you the first of a new series curated by WhitneyAbstraKt and AM’s own Michell C. Clark, entitled A Night With Leyla. The Virginia-based creatives have compiled a smooth forty-five minute mix that fuses multiple genres into a cohesive listen, and includes several nods to their region. As Whitney explains:

“Each time you meet someone new, the process of getting to know them is different. I would describe this mix as the perfect date night with someone you just met. That’s the idea behind the A Night With… series. Leyla’s the chick that’s super chill, but talks slick and makes you think. So for this one, it’s sultry, mellow and vibed-out.”

Whitney was involved in A&R development for Kali Uchis, and works with an indie boutique label known as Stereo Gold. She currently works with a talented collective from Maryland known as Last Niight. Look for more editions of the A Night With… series in the near future, and don’t forget to catch both Whitney and Michell at the EpicFest tastemakers conference next Monday in Richmond, Virginia.┬áStream and download A Night With Leyla below, and check the tracklist afterwards.
