A magical, soft golden sunset last night at Es Vedra. I played a few select tunes as the sun went down…naturally…so humbled someone said after that the sunset + my tunes was like ‘floating in paradise’. I will never forget that!! How special 💝 I LOVE that I am on earth to be a channel for beautiful music that moves souls and spirits. I’m just a channel in a catsuit! 😻 Went so well yesterday at my gig @grb_ibiza that I’m part of the family now, and back again spinning today for their season closing party!!
