women-beach_00259571

  After another long and dreadful winter it’s hard to believe that summer is around the corner. Sunshine and hot weather aren’t the only things to look forward to, however; summer also means we are in store for some massive dance anthems! Judging by these fresh releases on Spinnin’ Records, it’s going to be a […]

[PROGRESSIVE HOUSE] Kaskade – “Never Sleep Alone”

neversleepalone

  Anyone who feels like they need to discover themselves should try insomnia. Sure, I know it’s not a voluntary state, but I can say with relative confidence that most of the chronic insomniacs out there are not saying they need a lesson in self discovery. You learn a lot about yourself in the twilight […]

[DARK INDIETRONICA/HIP HOP] Grimes- Realiti // Nosaj Thing- Cold Stares

ignacio2

 Cold stares. Laptop LED lights make light of the moment. You are dead. They illuminate our four eyes off heart monitors, IV bags, bars.bars.bars.so.many.fucking.bars making up this bed, windows that look out to lower Sukumvhit as it shines back. Back into eyes of cold stares. We’ll leer over the edges of death Not always the […]

  Flip an 8 on its side. Infinity love. A goddamn numerical Hallmark card. I’ll always skate drunkenly back to you. Even if the ice melts. It’s the fucking physics of love. In Vietnam the 8 is lucky. Bastard number, taunting me. Present everywhere, a visual aid for karma. No matter what happens, it’ll all […]

  It’s not pretty a damsel in distress, don’t let me, romanticize the mess. Detached says the rustling of the voice behind me as I struggle with last nights inventory, it’s not the first time I hear that accusation. I feel the burning of his eyes on the curve beneath my back begging me to stay, […]

kat vinter 2

  I am a million pieces, I don’t know. How to put them back together; even though, I tried every combination, but never got it right. The azure name tag around my neck burns from 8 to 5 telling me to focus on my mission, Colgate didn’t win the morning war against Grey Goose and […]
