Brady Lem grew up lapping Hyland Hills, an iconic Minnesota ski hill with a fast tow rope and proper park. It was at Hyland that he developed the astute ability for riding rails that he has since taken with him to both resort and street locations around the world. While Brady has a fondness for steel when he's on his snowboard, when he's scrolling through Spotify, his playlist is more melodic—he gets enough heavy metal when he's stacking clips. Because Brady's boarding style is so easy on the eyes, we tapped him to provide a playlist that's music to his ears. Because it's these tunes, as well as a detune, that Brady takes with him when he's dropping in. – Mary Walsh
