That One Time When Big Boi Mistook Nathan For Andre

Let’s start by saying New Yorker Nathan Reese is an amazing music writer with impeccable taste (evidenced by That Once Time When Big Boi Mistook Nathan For Andre, above). He’s a Music Columist at Refinery29 where he writes track reviews, interviews, and features; a Music Contributor at International Tapes, a blog that focuses on global DIY music culture; has written about Jessie Ware for Portable and is the Social Media and Digital Strategy Manager at Shore Fire Media, a leading music PR and marketing firm. So basically, dude knows his stuff.

Because now Portable is on Spotify, and because we want to say a resounding HAPPY FRIDAY, we’ve asked Nathan to put together a playlist of his recommended Spring pop listens for you, our much loved audience. Flavored with tropical, synthy sounds and r’n'b undertones, you’ll be seeing sorbet colored sunsets with every listen. After the jump you can watch the videos that match Nathan’s mixtape, and find out what he had to say about his choices.
