Spanning different genres, eras and areas, Varnish La Piscine curates a playlist dedicated to the music that opens our minds and ears.

"UMI Says" by Mos Def

I have to say this is the Mos Def track that touched me the most.

"Flashing Lights" by Kayne West

What a track! It should be listened to at the Louvre Museum.

Gardenia - "Chiquita Linda"

The chorus is captivating.

"Successful" by Ariana Grande

Ariana agreeing to hop on a minimalist track produced by Pharrell and it works.

Hi-Fi Set - "Don't You Tell Him"

Just listen to the chorus, that's what life is about.

Antonio Adolfo & A Brazuca - "Vôo Da Apolo"

This music is very cold, I don't know how to describe it but it's like ice that shines.

Melting Holidays - "Merci, La Vie"

Merci la Vie!

Supply, Demand and Curve - "When You're By Yourself"

They've composed this music in the dark, I am sure of that.

Clipse feat. Slim Thug - "Wamp Wamp (What It Do)"

This is rap, THE REAL RAP.

Brian Dee - "Polo Pony"

Ideal track to take care of my plants.
