Last weekend I spent 11 hours at the park. This is just what eight months of winter does to me in Montreal. My stores of Vitamin D are low, my white thighs are blinding children, and I am sick of looking at four apartment walls. Even a speck of nice weather enables time to be spent with good books, bags of chips and best buds in the park. What’s more, university semesters have ended and long-weekends can be spotted on the horizon. Spring has truly and finally sprung!

What better way to ring in May flowers than with an electro/R&B/dance hall playlist, right? As the sun pokes it head around the clouds, we present some fantastic beats to guide your upcoming Mont-Royal park hang-outs, Mile End balcony parties, and BBQ dinner nights. Raybans, bicycles and shorts at-the-ready, please!
