[PLAYLIST] – NORTH COAST MUSIC FESTIVAL 2014 PREVIEW

logo_2014_sls

Crafted by James Kabat and Kavi S. Still nursing hangovers from Lolla, Chicago is about descend in droves upon West Loop’s Union Park. Well, maybe descend is too strong a verb. They’ll slink their way on the L, shushing teenagers for the temerity to raise their voice an octave above a whisper. That is until […]

You might want to prepare yourselves for this one. How you do that, I will leave up to you to decide, but it is necessary that I adequately provide you with a proper heads up that you’re about to experience the future of the mix. That’s right you dancing fools, we here at S&S are […]

[DEEP HOUSE] Adam K – Is There Anybody Out There (Evoke Vocal Edit)

ADAM K FEAT

A month ago I received a late night phone call, it was a good friend of mine crying and through her sobs I understood that a beautiful soul had passed away. Not only had she passed away, but she had made the choice to end her life. She was physically beautiful and intellectually capable and […]

[DEEP HOUSE] Harold van Lennep – Liberation

Harold van Lennep1

  I haven’t yet reached enough narcissistic levels to contemplate myself worthy of being named God. Nevertheless, I look into the lost souls around me and say “Welcome home”. I believe that life puts people in our paths that are meant to be there. Whether they are the forbidden fruit tempting us to renounce on […]

[DARK POP/PREMIERE] M.A.U.- Epic Start

tumblr_lioam8RqUQ1qebb1do1_500

I have this recurring nightmare. It terrifies me to lose my loneliness, to think that meeting someone might cause me to ‘embrace old stories’ and erase them for the sake of love. as this mercurial, tortured bit of hopeful pop by MAU advocates. Fresh starts are stellar and all, but it’s a ‘thin line’ between loving […]

[EVENT RECAP] You take Xanax? I take Trance: Future Sounds of Egypt 350 takes over New York City at historic Hammerstein Ballroom

What do you do when you have a bad week? Maybe you work out like a fiend, or perhaps you find your solace in the nearest pint of Häagen-Dazs. Or, maybe you just go straight for the vodka and call it a day. But if you’re on this site I’m guessing you are like me, […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Galimatias- Night Owl

artworks-000088633861-ygezqj-t500x500

I do the midnight mode mambo with my mind all the time. I’m writing this at 2:17am–an hour, even in the rural parts of Thailand where roosters roam every inch of the road, where even they would say ‘fuck off. this is too early to wake the world’.  But since I was 7 my blood […]

[CHILLED INDIETRONICA] Kilter – Coward (Feat. Ngaiire)

kilter1

Insomnia. Defined as habitual sleeplessness. I find comfort through darkness by myself. Deep in thoughts, the mysteries I keep to myself are none that I am willing to share to those closest. Thoughts that brick by brick hold a barrier that contain my sanity. Connected by cement made by memories of my own struggles. Endlessly […]

The […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Little Dragon- Pretty Girls (Gold Fields Remix)

120628-little-dragon

Don’t get stuck.  You move in for a kiss but your lips feel like suburbia.  Your hands caress my neck  but they feel like the stranglehold of a white picket fence, boxing me in.  Your arm hair is like the blades of grass of some goddamn lawn I’m going to have to mow, rub my […]
