An Amazing podcast that has so much to offer!

I really enjoy Beyond The Beats with Alec and Samir! Loved the vibes and all the attention to detail in the topics discussed. I also really think its a beautiful thing to share some new music from up and coming artists, just sharing music in general is amazing to props to them for doing that in their episodes.
