Media Roots Music – Atop Mix #4

Posted on by
Media Roots Music- Atop Set #4 by Media Roots

MEDIA ROOTS– This week’s mix is a tribute to the artistry of melodic composition by artists who use music as a medium to relay their most intense emotions.

These tracks I chose exemplify how the composition within every piece of music can be compared to the unique qualities of fingerprints. Every one of us has our own voice, sound and style. It takes guts to express that voice– these artists do it well.

All the featured music on the mix can be found through searching or by emailing me: [email protected].
