It’s Friday and we love playlist! Curated by Philly’s own Icon Ebony Fierce, “The Iconic Experience” is inspired by the legendary djs of the 90s, and high glam drag. This mood boosting playlist blends deep house, garage, new jack swing, Detroit techno and hip house to brighten your day. The special thing about this playlist, is that it features a plethora of obscure and lesser known songs that may leave a distant memory for those that lived during those times, been to the many underground clubs or something new for music heads to fall in love with. This playlist is great to vogue with a glass of wine at home, blast in your car on your way to the club or even a surprise twist to your house party.
