This is a collection of twelve songs that have influenced me, opened my eyes, entertained me, or I just generally think are beautiful. I tried to order the videos in such a way that the listener could find their similarities in tone or practice despite being made by people worlds/genres apart.

Cameron Reed is an electronic musician that regrettably goes by the ridiculous moniker Babe Rainbow. He has one EP out on Warp Records with another one due in June, not to mention tons of free music and remixes floating around the Internet. You've probably seen his music pop up on one of your favourite blogs. People (and critics) seem to like it.
At home in Vancouver, he works at an advertising agency and spends his free time as the director of two cultural festivals.
