Blog JBFC Mixtapes, Vol. 6: Summer @ the Lab Director Darrel Swann

Posted May 17, 2018

JBFC Mixtapes is a new initiative from the Burns to highlight the music—from soundtracks to scores—that makes the cinematic experience so special. We’ll be updating the blog with mixtapes from staff members, special guests, and more, to drop the needle on our favorite songs from, about, or inspired by films—with a few curveballs every now and then. Our sixth installment comes from Senior Education Faculty Member/Summer @ the Lab Director Darrel Swann. Excited to welcome warmer weather to New York, Darrel put together a summery playlist in anticipation of Summer @ the Lab‘s start in early July! Listen to Darrel’s mix now via the embedded player below, or download it to listen later from the JBFC spotify account!
