1. The Cosmo Baker Roots Picnic 2013 Mixtape (AUDIO).


    Listening to Cosmo Baker spin is a guaranteed good time, which makes checking out his and Okayplayer 's Official Roots Picnic 2013 Mixtape a no-brainer if you're looking to unwind. Get ready for this year's famed Philly festival by partaking in this mighty fine collection of tunes featuring music from all the artists performing on the bill.

    Cosmo writes: "...to me it comes down to one thing – love. The love that one has that makes one do what they do. It’s not for the money of the fame, but for the love of music that is the single reason why we’re in this game. That’s the greatest commonality that we all share, and one of the reasons why Okayplayer is what it is today in 2013. Perhaps it’s something in our mutual Philly history, and its collective cultural fiber; from being in that one time at that one place. I don’t know, but I do know one thing: I grew up with all this, and so when I was asked to contribute this mix, it was more than an honor. It felt like I was coming back home.”
