WARMER MIXTAPES #1242 | by Jason Drakes and Mannie Seranilla of The Airplane Boys

SIDE A | by Mannie Seranilla

1. N*E*R*D | Run To The Sun
When we first started crafting songs a lot of our reference points would be from listening to N*E*R*D and this song stuck out to us on our car rides.

2. OutKast | B.O.B
We used to go crazy to this in the school yard, and their presence as a duo was hella inspiring. The high octane in this song is unmatched.

3. Kenna | Say Goodbye To Love
As you can tell we loved the Star Trak movement. So when we first got our license, this was a favourite along with N*E*R*D and Chester French that we were bumping on the highway.

4. Radiohead | Everything In Its Right Place

5. K-OS | Superstar, Pt. 1
K-OS was a Canadian artist we looked up to because how courageous he was with his sound. This song was big for the Hip Hop community in the city back then, and 'til this day we still hustle to it.

6. Arcade Fire | We Used To Wait
When we started to get invited to festivals we would always play this on our travels.

7. The Notorious B.I.G. | Mo Money Mo Problems (feat. Puff Daddy & Mase)
Our favourite song when we were 10 years old.

8. The Diplomats | Dipset Anthem (feat. Cam'Ron & Juelz Santana)
This was our anthem in High School.

9. Wu-Tang Clan | Triumph (feat. Cappadonna)
We would always spit these lyrics word for word in our Grade/Elementary School yard.

10. Fugees | Fu-Gee-La
We looked up to Lauryn and Wyclef mostly, and this song was vibes all Summer.

1. Kanye West | Flashing Lights (feat. Dwele)

2. Nas | Still Dreaming (feat. Kanye West & Chrisette Michele)
Our Love for Story Telling and Lyricism grew whenever we played this in the car.

3. Lupe Fiasco | Real
Lupe was a big influence in our Music when we first started. Our favourite song from him was this record.

4. Jay-Z | Beach Chair (with Chris Martin)
When all is said and done we want to have perspective in our career that this song's soundscape and lyrics tell.

5. Gorillaz | Empire Ants (feat. Little Dragon)
Our first time in LA we would be at peace driving around the city playing this.

6. N*E*R*D | Sooner Or Later
Our first gig as The Airplane Boys were Jazz festivals. We would play this all the time driving to and from those performances.

7. Frank Ocean | Lovecrimes
When nostalgia, ULTRA. dropped we were embracing Frank's melodies and story telling. This was the soundtrack to an unforgettable summer.

8. Cults | You Know What I Mean
We drove to Montreal to perform for Osheaga Festival from Toronto. It's a 6-8 hour drive with our team packed in one car, and our manager played us this song and the feeling was surreal.

9. When Saints Go Machine | Hos Mig Igen (feat. Coco O) (Xander Cover)
We were excited to be in California playing Coachella festival. On our drive there and back this song was the pulse of our soundtracks.

One of our closest friends ILLANGELO produced this, when we first heard it we knew it was a special song and it remains an anthem for our city.
