Most of the mixes artists make for i-D are centred around partying, adventure, staying up all night and getting loose. But at the end of the year, it's kind of refreshing to focus on something a little more serene. "Caring for indoor plants is one of the most rewarding things you can do," reflects Lewis Cancut. He notes that because they require specific amounts of sunlight, water, nutrients and fresh air, taking on the task requires you to slow down. "You have to be sensitive to any changes which may indicate they're under stress. It forces you to step outside of your own routine and make time for them," he adds.

That imposed repose doubles as a great time to listen to music. "I've made this mix with that in mind," Lewis continues. "I really hope that while you're looking after your indoor plants this could be your soundtrack."
