Pedro Hernandez is a co-founder of and contributor at Night Fog Reader, a San Francisco based music and culture blog. He and his good friend, our very own Bold Local Michelle Broder Van Dyke, launched Night Fog Reader in March of this year to share their love of local music, fun parties, and whatever else has them pumped. Pedro listens to all kinds of stuff and can get into just about anything, but definitely likes a healthy dose of 80’s R&B and soul. His mixtape brings together songs from exciting local acts and up-and-comers, along with some tracks that are getting major playtime from local DJ nights and parties.
Here is Pedro’s summertime inspired mixtape, called “NFR01 Solstice.”
