Looking for the *perfect* playlist to set the mood on your next date night? Here are local music producer and DJ, Gina Jeanz’s, sexy sound selections to make the evening a memorable one.
As a music producer and DJ, people expect me to be a walking music library! In reality, the world of music is so vast and we are forever exploring, learning and being introduced to new sounds from across the globe. It’s a never-ending journey of discovery!
When I create a playlist, I’m very cognizant of the feeling I get when I listen to my song selection. Sometimes tracks don’t work, but that’s okay! The intention is to create an experience that will move the listeners. Here are some insights into my process when it comes to compiling a playlist.
Music is a Mood
There are certain beautiful songs that have the ability to captivate you, almost like a spell. They have the power to create memories that can take you back whenever you hear them. The vocalist, the lyrics and the instrumentals are all important when it comes to creating a timeless tune.
With the invention of streaming platforms, all our favourite albums are now at our fingertips. Playing your personal music library provides an opportunity for someone to get to know you *just a little more* and sets the mood for an enhanced experience.
When it comes to creating a date night playlist, there is a bit of a science to it! Some songs should be more intense and energetic while others should be calmer and relaxing.
These factors do play a role in how they make us feel on both a psychological and physical level. The right tracks can make or break the setting, so music is definitely a mood that you can tap into to level up your evening.
The Genre Matters
Music genres have transformed over the years and many of the old classics have been sampled back into popular trending songs. It’s awesome to see artists paying homage to some of the greats! Personally, I enjoy exploring the balance between old school and new school RnB.
When it comes to date night, finding a calm relaxing playlist that fits your mood is a great place to start. It doesn’t always have to be emotional sounds, either, but mixed with more upbeat tracks, too.
Wherever the Night Takes Us
Playlist names can give people an idea of what mood or genre of music you can expect to hear. Mine is simply titled: ‘Wherever the Night Takes Us’.
Remember, there’s no pressure as to how the night should end. So just go with the flow and enjoy the tunes and the company!
