[DEEP HOUSE] July Child – “When You Call” (Deepend remix)

deepend remix large

  I’ll never quite understand the intrinsic pull that one human being can feel toward another. Science has attributed it to genetic chemistry and pheromones, those of a more spiritual orientation call it finding a soulmate, and people like me…don’t even try to explain it. Some things, in my opinion, are not meant to be […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Born Gold- Until You Heal

BORNGOLD2

  I was to start this year at war.  I swore I needed it. Really.  It’s been Baghdad inside me, at least since the year genocide donned a cocktail mask and rode bombs into the downtown core cooing ‘Don’t mind me, I’m freeeedom!’. 2003. Fuck.  A whole generation of baby memories grew up in that time […]

[DARK POP] Real Lies – North Circular (Local Hero Remix)

fggg

  Solitude sinks its teeth into my stomach. It’s got me twisted up in knots, shooting glances at my gut–not trusting it knows how to get me back to humanity.  So, I pacify it with whiskey.  Shot after shot across every bar stool I can find in Thailand.  And I sit in silence and stare […]

[TROPICAL HOUSE] Mynga feat. Cosmo Klein – “Back Home” (Thomas Jack remix)

Thomas-Jack.

  I’ve never been much for astrology because every Cancer profile I’ve ever read has confidently pronounced that I must be an introverted homebody, an ugly little ball of emotion who seeks shelter beneath her own thick skin. Anyone who knows me well would tell you quite the opposite; I returned from a solo trip […]

[PREMIERE/LP REVIEW] MAU- Safari Entrepeneur + FREE DOWNLOAD OF 1 Track

MAU - Artwork

  A muted disaffection, a cold affair with the world where we whisper sounds of our discontentment into tumblers of scotch–that’s the sound of our generation. We are a disconnected generation. We look at the world and it stares back placidly as it shrugs–it’s forgotten who we even are. And we sit in our bedrooms and […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Young the Giant- Mind Over Matter (Stint Remix)

young-the-giant-mind-over-matter

  And I fell, because that’s what I do. It’s not a sign of weakness. And even if it was, who cares? I’m a young man, despite the litany of battle scars I like to lick. It takes [thrilling] remixes like this sometimes to help me realize that. I’m so scarred because I’ve got no […]

[PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] Grum – “Straight to Your Heart”

GRUM

  Short of crashing my car on the way to work, there are few things in this world that can give me goosebumps on a weekday before 7 a.m.  On this particular morning, Electric Area and BPM just weren’t cutting it on Sirius, so I put on Soundcloud and let my stream play while I […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA] Angus and Julia Stone-A Heartbreak (ODESZA Remix)

bangkok-art-installation_41941_600x450

  [At The Sights and Sounds we like to bring humanity back to music reviewing, so sometimes reviews  like this are all about the  journey we were on that a song completed for us. We hope you enjoy the change from your usual format.] I spent two days punching the streets of Bangkok with my […]

[PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] Ryn Weaver – Stay Low (Maor Levi Remix)

7kiRc47D

  You might know the deal–the clock is edging toward that time of  night when your bed seems extra empty, and you’ve had just enough whiskey and lemons to give you the courage to call that person who keeps invading your slightly buzzed thoughts to come over and remedy the solitude. No matter the gratification […]
