Bayes Blast 29 – VibeClipse

Steven and Eneasz regale each other and you with our stories, experiences, and takeaways from VibeClipse.

Also, as hinted in this blast and discussed in the last blast, Yassine is a baller DJ. Steven’s wife enjoyed one of his songs enough to ask him about so he could send it over. Check out a sample of his skills here. This is the opposite of dance hell. 😉
