AXIS is blessed to have many employees coming from different backgrounds and ages. One day we posed the question: “What music reminds you of summer? You know, those lazy days spent by the water with the warm sun and an ice cold drink?”.

We were surprised by all the different responses. Some are iconic, some we never even heard of.  So we thought we would compile an AXIS Summer Mixtape playlist so you can enjoy some summer music on the way to your inspections. See if you recognize what we chose.
