artworks-000081970205-fv32e3-t500x500

You think you’re someone of intrigue. As you stare down a bevy of buoys carrying your secrets you’ve sunk in the bottom of the Bay, you can certainly convince yourself of that. Because all that’s left to share with the teeming minds trawling the cityscape behind you are the parts you’ve hand selected. Gone are […]

[DARK POP] Lykke Li- Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone (Zebra Safari Remix) [FREE DL]

cear_lykkeli_wounded_v

Some tracks meet the verbosity of my mind and crash land into it like a syringe full of Valium. I feel knocked back into complacency, soothed–no, healed–by just the goddamn beauty of it all.  That vein of insta-Serotonin boosting songs includes the likes of King avriel’s ‘Freedom’,  SZA’s ‘Julia’, and now Zebra Safari’s remix of Lykke Li’s “Love Me Like […]

[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 […]

[ELECTRO/BASS] Justice - "We Are Your Friends" (Dani Deahl Purrrnt Up Remix) [Free Download]

Whether you know it or not, there has been a massive revolution regarding women’s roles in the EDM community. Consistently under-booked and over-looked at shows and festivals, it’s clear that at this point, electronic dance music is dominated by the male persuasion. But there is one double X chromosome boasting producer/DJ out there blazing a […]

[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 […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Bastille -Bad Blood (Lido Remix)

artworks-000079694906-6zihxv-t500x500

And these little things define you forever, forever.  We brought a knife to the heart fight of our friendship, but we didn’t become blood brothers. We didn’t bind together,  we didn’t cut our fingers in solidarity. Losing you, was like cutting off one of my limbs. But I’m stubborn enough to stumble around spraying my […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar – “Hey Now” (Arty Remix)

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] London Grammar - "Hey Now" (Arty Remix)

If you’re a night owl such as myself, you’ll find you spend a lot of time alone at your computer during the twilight hours. I find it quite peaceful, the lack of any outside distractions allowing me to focus and concentrate on the task at hand. As the hours progress, I tend to find myself […]

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] Coldplay – “Midnight” (Kygo Remix)

[CHILL/ELECTRONIC] Coldplay - "Midnight" (Kygo Remix)

Some artists take years developing a sound they can call their own, often spending endless hours and countless all nighters in front of their work space pouring over every detail of their craft. Live bands, too, have a seemingly endless tour schedule, opening in front of meager crowds in a continual effort to spread their […]

[ELECTRO/DANCE] Borgeous – “Invincible” (Freak Island Remix) [Free Download]

[ELECTRO/DANCE] Borgeous - "Invincible" (Freak Island Remix)

There are some hot things happening in Chicago at the moment, and I’m not just talking about the temperatures finally breaking 70 degrees for the first time this year. Yes, Chicago has officially joined summer, having made the un-Democratic decision to just forego spring altogether. It makes me feel like dancing all the way to […]

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers – “Ain’t No Sunshine” (Lido Remix)

[ELECTRONIC] Bill Withers - "Ain't No Sunshine" (Lido Remix)

It’s dreary and depressing in Chicago. Spring is fighting for it’s life here, but it’s round 3 and winter is a tough motherfucker. Wait a second, let me check my calender… yup, it’s almost May, yet the cold, wet weather outside my window weaves a different tale of depression and apathy. I imagine it’s the […]
