In advance of the third edition of SXM Festival, Francesca Lombardo has shared a pre-event playlist for fans eager to bask in the sunlight of the paradise island of Saint-Martin / Sint-Maarten.
Lombardo rounds out a full lineup that includes the imitable, quirky Ricardo Villalobos, globe-trotting techno sensation Nicole Moudaber, house/techno stalwart John Acquaviva, France’s Oxia, psychedelic tech house warrior Rebolledo, Get Physical record label heads M.A.N.D.Y, Shaun Reeves of Visionquest, the fantastical duo Blond:ish, and the iconic Swiss DJ Sonja Moonear.
This is what Lombardo had to say regarding the playlist she compiled:
These are a selection of songs from a variety of sounds that inspired me throughout the writing and finishing stages of my album Life of Leaf. Either the production, composition style or even just the vibe, these tracks and the artists behind them helped inform the way in which I approach my music.
