99U Music Mix – Slow and Steady Wins the Race

Need a little extra oomph to get through your workload? Tune into our summery new 99U productivity mega-mix.

In the spirit of summertime, we ditched our usual instrumental focus for this 99U mix in favor of sun-kissed pop, dreamy electronica, and just a smidge of chilled-out reggae. Pulling a number of tracks from past 99 mixes, it’s a bit of a greatest hits, with a few new and undeniably infectious jams thrown in for good measure (see: “I Love It” by Icona Pop).

    Love the mixes like this. It’s things like these that separate you from the glut of productivity/creativity blogs out there. Keep it up.
