Dummy Mix 564 // Sonia Calico
She’s Emotional (or 𝕾𝖍𝖊’𝖘 𝕰𝖒𝖔𝖙𝖎𝖔𝖓𝖆𝖑, as it’s styled) is the mix series from NTS regular and Miami-born, LA-based DJ Mia Carucci. She puts these out twice a year on cassette, typically on Valentine’s Day and her birthday, as something of a diary of the emotions she feels along the way.
“This Valentine’s Day mix is about new love and the overwhelming drama you feel when you think you’ve found your soulmate,” Mia says of Volume IV, which you can hear below. “It’s beautiful yet consuming and sometimes a bit suffocating.”
A super-smooth selection of emotional slow jams, you can either enjoy it with your boo – or slam it on and celebrate your singledom.
