Tried & True is a vintage boutique in LA’s famed Fairfax district, boasting an inventory of immaculately-curated shelves which contain everything from vintage Chanel bomber jackets to pristine Polo luggage.

In an effort to capture the spirit and sensibility of Tried & True’s inventory, I opted to strictly pull tracks from the 80s, 90s and early 2000s. This is a 60-minute mix of throwback selections conceived during the same era as much of the gear on Tried & True’s shelves.
Christon Gray, from Columbus, OH, takes us down the road which troubles every young man, especially one who adheres to Christian values. Christon says it best “People share a lot of the same experiences in relationships. Growing up you learn that love is not what you think it is, and by the time you’ve found that one, left behind usually is a trail of broken hearts, failed attempts, and overdue apologies. So is it magic or mayhem?” Christon tackles relationships while handling the bars and the melodic hook.
Looking forward to see what Christon and Collision Records has in store for the future.
