Gnash – I Hate U I Love U (feat. Olivia O´Brien) (stalbr Remix)

This remix has a lot of meaning for me. The lyrics + the beat. It’s a completely different feel from the original and effectively a different song. Still not over it no matter how many times it plays, and the best is when it comes up on shuffle like it did tonight. Perhaps you hear a song at exactly the moment you need to.

LATE DESERT (CHONIES OFF REMIX) – FOALS & RÜFÜS

In honor of officially locking down my Coachella ticket today, I give you RÜFÜS DU SOL. But not just any song a total normie person could get on Spotify. I’m all about the underground remixes in the dark, dusty corners of SoundCloud, where I’m lost in a deep rabbit hole of one jam that led to another, and then I hear something that rocks me just a little bit more that it causes me to look twice…. See if you can keep up. 🙂

Bruneaux – Captivate The Light (deadmau5 x Mimi Page)

One of the great things about music is how it connects you with people you would otherwise never cross paths with on a day-to-day; all it takes is mere mention of a song/genre/mood…

There’s a darkness that adores me, sending roses in the night.

Kaskade & Felix Cartal – Fakin It (Feat. Ofelia K)

This popped on my radar this week and it just works. I figured this was definitely one of those jams that I probably heard the remix for first, and barely played the original much (or at all). Hence why the original strikes me a certain way… Upon further research through my SoundCloud bank of pure gold, yes, I found the remix that was a major heartbeat for me at one time. Don’t miss that Frankie Sanchez remix below too.

Kid Cudi – Rain

Probably one of my favorite things ever is going on my music laptop – the laptop I have solely dedicated to my music library – and hitting shuffle. I re-discover some absolute jams that instantly transport me back in time. I think that’s one thing I love so much about music, the emotional connection I have to so many songs that were my lifeline at defining points in my life. If you know me, you already know Kid Cudi is my one love forever. Let’s throw it back to 2011 with this one.
