It’s been a long time

I shouldn’t have left you

Without a dope playlist to vibe to

If you’re receiving this in your inbox, it means at some point in 2019 you subscribed to my newsletter, Kick’s Groove. It was a short-lived yet very cool project. You can still read the archive here.

A world pandemic later, here I come again!

With this 2021 revamped version, things will be super straightforward:

  1. I curate a playlist of 50 new rap/R&B songs.

  2. You receive an email every time the playlist is updated, i.e. once a week, usually on Friday evenings or Saturday mornings (France time).

That’s it. It’s simple. It’s free.

Of course, if for whatever reason you’re not in the mood for a little weekly delivery of quality music curated with finesse, you can always unsubscribe. I won’t judge you. I promise.

Now, on the contrary, if you’d like the full experience (i.e. get access to private playlists + receive an additional monthly post with exclusive content + submit songs), please consider becoming a paid subscriber for just a symbolic euro per month.

Long story short, rather than paraphrasing myself, I invite you to check out this page where I explain everything you need to know about Kick’s Groove and other easy ways you can support it.

🎧 Listen on your favorite streaming platform:



Apple Music

Quick tip to improve your listening experience: enable crossfade in the playback settings and select a 6 seconds crossfade duration.

🎶 This week’s new entries:

It’s the very first update, so you’re in for a grand total of 50 new songs. But for the next updates, expect a more digestible 10 to 15 additions. Which means the playlist should be entirely refreshed every month or so.

Wanna dive into what you previously missed? Become a paid subscriber to get permanent access to all songs ever added to the playlist (160 and counting so far).
