Mix Masters: Chris Ward's Don't Come A-Knockin' If The Yacht's A Rockin' Mix

Some of you may remember Chris Ward from being one beard hair away from snagging our Philly's Sexiest Dude ALIVE! title last December. Others may know him from being one half of Philly bearded wonders, Pattern is Movement. Clearly, he rules.

We asked him to do a mix for us, and this is what he tossed to together. He explains, "It's inspired by the famed yacht rock that we came to love a few years ago via the show on Channel 101. However, I peppered the playlist with some slammin' r&b that seems to have inspired the blue-eyed soul that is yacht rock. I also placed a couple r&b tunes from the '90s/'00s that seemed to fit the bill, so this is definitely a lineage of yacht rock of sorts." There you go!

These are the types of smooth jams he'll be spinning tonight at Johnny Brenda's from 7pm-11pm for a Beer Week Cider event. Go 'cause cider will be a flowin' all night long. Click on the image to download the mix and prepare to sail away.

I've never met a woman who has been aroused by a song about getting infected with HIV.
