Sweet Serenade Mixtapes

Here to uplift those special moments free of time.

Pure Summer Vibes! “Apple of My Eye” by Jesse Whitney

Here is a friend of mine whom i met on Zoom (what a sad world that is), who then told me he was doing music while we talked about lizards, UFOs, conspiracies and Wikileaks and stuff…
Well send it he did! He made a super, uber-sweet beach, reggae, folky songwriter tune and it’s *****ing mindblowingly lovely! Play it at all summer, play at your garden party, play it in your barnhouse, play it on your balcony with your loved one! A proper 100% YUM YUM top tune, for the late night hours on the beach… Really wants me make a new Mixtape!
Proper music, not just some soundbytes to torture your brains memory center (actually lol’ed while writing this). Jesse is straight out of Melbourne, and spent some time in Berlin, where the hook-up happened, and although i am officially on team Sidney, simply bc my good friend Mat McHugh is from there, i should be biased (i am)  but this tune is some sweet, sweet summer wine. Check out “Apple of my Eye”!

ps. usually i would have posted a sunny beach pic like this, but Jesse has an unusally good so i had to repost it!

5 Years Of Sweet Serenade // The Complete Collection In Good Quality // Right Here Right Now

sweet serenade

“If you think sunshine brings you happiness,

then you haven’t danced in the rain.”


If there ever was a motto for this Mixtape series it’s pretty much summed up in the subtitle: Give you the heavens and the sunshine. What was meant by that becomes obvious when listening to the each of the series. Throughout the years there was always music needed to accompany you on your travels and every path taken appears to be a new and fresh journey – so this is what these mixes are about. The many listeners have thanked me for so many new artists they have found with the Sweet Serenade Mixtapes often and I open heartedly appreciate that. It was often demanded that we release these mixes as official Albums, but what’s the difference – at most its the quality – so here you go – the entire bundle as High quality versions. And one more thing – share it with your friends just like we have shared it with everyone else, your friends in real life not on your social media nets :)).

Ps: Dear friends, below you’ll find a Bandcamp Playlist that runs for about 7h. So press play and let the music have you smooth sailing through your daily routines. No matter if its regular work, studying, daydreaming or simply swaying away in your hammoks. Appreciate life.

“Sweet Serenade Vol 6” Compiled And A Little Bit Mixed By Chrome & Coco

Sweet Serenade vol 6

“Life is a dancer and you are the dance.”

– Taoist Proverb

It often feels as if life is a dance, that you dont know yet. Then you try to pick it up. To do this you think you have to learn the right steps and feel the rhythm. Sometimes its easy if someone is around to guide you. Someone who takes your hand and shows you the right steps. You can let yourself go and dont have to think about the moves but just follow the steps of the other one. Until he/she lets you go because you both believe that now you know the right steps. You are certain that now you have understood the steps and that you know the dance. And maybe you will go on dancing a bit longer, still the music in your head. But soon you will trip over your own feet, will make a step in the wrong direction. You will lose the rhythm and try to remember the sequences and the right steps. But you simply don’t remember anymore and can’t get it right. You have to stop since it wasn’t your dance – to begin with.

So you get back up, thinking you can learn the dance alone. You are certain that if you excercise long enough you will be able to understand the dance and that one day you will be able to dance it. Somewhen. But that is not going to happen. You will only have sore feet, will be so exhausted and out of breath that you have to stop. You will spin in circles that you will get you dizzy and you will have to sit down. And that’s where it all starts anew and you will ask yourself: “Why am i not able to learn that dance, since it is my life?”

Sweet Serenade Vol 6

And if you are still in that very moment, and dont move to any kind of choreography, but instead maybe just listen to the song playing in the background… maybe you will understand that there is no such thing as a dance that you can learn. Because you are the dance yourself – and your life is the dancer.

This Sweet Serenade came to life through one of these still moments. Since our dance only becomes complete with the music.

Enjoy your dance…

…and share it with your friends and loved ones… or simply with the whole world. Big push buttons below :)
