would be the best name EVER for some chilled out choons - if it wasn’t the nick-name of another lovely new contributor in the Minty fam :)  Meet John Ruzicka.  He was born in Kansas City, has ties in Spain, Italy, London, Amsterdam and South America now is residing in San Diego. 

A forward-thinking architect by trade and innate music connoisseur 24/7, homie has a keen sense of what sounds are game changers.  Rooted in hip hop and reggae, Snoozicka possesses a unique skill in pinpointing fresh music from other countries and says “there is top quality music being made in every genre”. 

We are very excited to have this new addition to the crew! Wait to go Yohnson and welcome to the team.
