[DARK POP] Porter Robinson- Lionhearted (Giraffage Remix)

50da4__486381_505606896130068_1845549389_n

I’m never one for the big boom boom sounds that permeate the air in EDM clubs like Nyan Cat spliced with Molly and sent out via supposedly inescapable aural transmissions into your brain. The formula is formulaic at this point: the bigger the beat, the more we piss all over it with happiness, the more people […]

[MONTHLY] Taking On Your Hero: Sounds of 06.2014 [FREE DL]

hotelimcoversspage

June sent us a monsoon of tracks that flooded our spindly hearts and sent our ears awash in a torrent of massively awesome melodies. We just came off two weeks where some of the best music all year was subsequently released day after fucking day. Best two weeks that I can ever remember, in fact. […]

[INDIETRONICA] Banks – Drowning (Lido Remix)

lido

Let’s be honest. We’ve all been here before. I remember starting my foggy mornings looking out my window and watching the ends of my cigarette light up; feeling a burning sensation in the back of my throat. It hurt so good feeling my smoke filled lungs. When I couldn’t suck in anymore smoke, I’d open […]

[ELECTRONIC / DEEP HOUSE] EDX – Breathin’ (Extended Vocal Mix)

avatars-EDX 500x500

You’re riding shotgun in the imaginary convertible driven by the boyfriend you don’t have. The breeze is swiftly flying through your hair like it does in the movies (not making birds nests and not tying bugs into it) but beautifully parallel to the cars direction. The setting is perfect. Driving down a speed road alongside […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Little Dragon- Nabuma Rubberband (AIMES Rework) [FREE DL]

artworks-000081223512-7v4zaf-t500x500

Swooping amongst the skyscrapers, deftly avoiding even a wing brace against the corner office. The crispness of the night you can feel as dew on your skin wiping itself off as the lights of a Hong Kong night soak–no, burn–you in their glory the closer you get.  Those lights: the sun to a modern day […]

[INDIE/DANCE] Sable- Foolin’ (Basenji Remix)

artworks-000080503859-1t1h7q-t500x500

If you’re going to prostrate yourself at the altar of a poor love, at least do it with some goddamn pride.  There’s a way to admit to a litany of loserly tendencies in an ex without sending like your going to carve their name in every bathroom stall from Tokyo to Sydney.  It’s called introspection […]

[INDIETRONICA] TĀLĀ- On My Own

artworks-000080769507-duiyih-t500x500

The ceiling fan in my hotel room in Bangkok sways above me, the rest of the room silent. I’m back from an hour of listening to TALA’s ‘On My Own’, traversing the suffocatingly populated streets of Ramkhamhaeng area; and although just moments before I’d reached human energy overload, the silence of my hotel, except for […]
