Speak to your audience with the playlist. Let them know you’re right there with them.
A Tip by Justin Kemerling

I’m middle 30s. My wife and I hang with lots of folks in that realm. At one of our parties in 2014, the playlist was anchored by albums that were 20 years old. For those of us in our mid-30s, 1994 was a pretty special time. Alongside the new and the fresh, we had some Weezer, Green Day, Beck, Oasis, and R.E.M. TLC’s “Waterfalls” for the ladies and Ween’s “Voodoo Lady” for the fellas. Last year, it felt like there was a lot of love going around for 90s hip-hop. Our Autumn Epic Thunder Crash playlist thus included a healthy dose of Ice Cube, Snoop and Dre, Biggy, 2Pac, En Vogue, and Salt-N-Pepa. My wife helped a lot with that one.
