CUTS004: Levitation by Sophia Knapp

It’s guest mix time! Now and then we ask our favourite DJs, producers, musicians and friends to do a mix for us. With every mix, we also ask some of our favourite illustrators, artists, graphic designers and friends to do the artwork for it, creating this beautiful blend between music and art.

Today’s guest is the somewhat West Coast sounding but Brooklyn-based pop gem Sophia Knapp. Earlier this spring she released her album “Into the Waves”, one of this year’s most elegant and heartfelt records. Those are two keywords that Gentle Cuts value highly. So, we contacted Sophia, asked her to do a mix and she did. Now, it’s an honor to present “Levitation” – a collection of songs that will help you float away over snow-covered landscapes into brighter times (maybe into the waves).

The creator behind the cover is illustrator and collage connoisseur Olof Svenblad. When we sent Olof’s artwork to Sophia, she was astonished by how much it resembled a tarot card that she had been meditating on lately. With that telepathic super-fact in mind, this really feels like destiny.

Here’s the tracklist.
