“Hippies and flower children of the 60’s would always describe one sick beat of any nature as being “Groovy” or “Far out”. We feel the same way. It doesn’t matter if it’s guitar, bass, violin, piano, ukulele, anything! This is the beats that intoxicate our brains, blow our minds, and really send us …well… Far out man.” —-> Got suggestions for music? E-mail Dignan
Recently, a writer, medical marijuana enthusiast, and song recorder named Darren McCrea approached me with a new compilation he had put together with one of his friends called, “The Hitchhiker.” Upon my first listen, this song sent me to space, it put me in a place where I felt free to chill. However, it had a funky beat reminiscent of old school R&B, while the main voice persisting throughout the song, reminded me of Tone Loc’s smooth, yet slightly eccentric voice. This tune is most definitely something I will have to add to my repertoire of smoking music, because it pours over the atmosphere much like the smoke that emanates from the tip of my tightly rolled blunts. In addition, it is refreshing to see someone like Darren McCrea, who is an already established figure within the community surrounding cannabis, reach outside of his comfort zone to pull off a selection so far out as this one. I mean, consider the level of detail alone, as it lasts four minutes and 20 seconds. Check out the song below and let me know what you think in the comments section.
