            I like to consider my taste in music a mix of magic that would evolve from the following scene: Avicii, clad in Beats by Dre headphones, walking into a small Brooklyn coffee shop to sip espresso with Dave Matthews when suddenly the two realize nothing would be more epic than collaborating with Jay-Z in the heart of Brooklyn.
