Washington DC native, Kris Kollins is on a quest to redefine ambiguity. An eccentric personality and flamboyant style, he aims to push the limitations on societal norms, and is ready to let his imagination run wild.
His newest track is titled, “Wish” and it is inspired by the traditional sounds of Miami culture and a relationship break up that didn’t go as well as everyone wishes. Kris Kollins said it’s, For the people who know they deserve more than bullshit, and leaving all of that in the rearview.” As we listened to the track, we loved the production, and it did help us reminisce on some relationships that we’ve had previously in our lives. Check out the track below.

Flow-bending artist aSanTIS discusses art, culture, and whether sound can solve the world’s problems in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
My interview with Amy Santis aka aSanTIS began in the most unexpected way. The Maryland-based flow-bending artist and lyrical storyteller came prepared to engage in conversation around questions I had posed – and she also brought one or two of her own thoughtful prompts based on her curiosities around my view of learning.
This practice of taking in her surroundings deeply through observation and inquiry has come naturally to aSanTIS ever since she was a young child. In terms of her early starts in music, she notes that she began as a discerning listener. “Just listening to music from my mom, on the radio, just being a consumer in the world of sound. But I think mainly, my mom has always loved dancing and listening to music, so that was sort of like second nature. We play music at gatherings, we play music in the car, and these songs are sort of like diaries that take us into a specific place.”
