Forged in the depths of Bethany Beach, Delaware, Daily Flava was founded in 2012 by 5XT, who broadcasted sporadic video logs from New York City and Los Angeles. Despite the name of the website, the updates were far from daily, and after careful consideration, Daily Flava shut its doors in 2013.
In 2014, Daily Flava returned to provide its loyal listeners with the best music that the web has to offer. Daily Flava is not limited to one genre, one style, or one person, but influenced by a team of taste makers and music addicts –the kind who use the toilet with their headphones on. We live for music, and we want our family, friends, and followers to be able to enjoy the same tunes we enjoy. Join us on a journey through space and sound as we travel into the future of music.
Our weekly newsletter, Weekly Flava, is a wrap-up of the week’s best videos and MP3s. The newsletter –besides updating our readers about what’s gucci– contains a link to a .zip file with the best MP3s of the week. We know that our fans can’t be on Daily Flava every second, and we want to ensure that our loyal readers stay on point with our weekly email.
