[DARK DANCE] Indiana- Heart on Fire (Bobby Tank Remix)

in11

[D I feel like I'm the only one this doesn't happen to. I don't meet people and have them alter my being, course correct my path based off their sexual (and, I guess) personal auras. I move along in my path and let people, like streams around me, flow through my life. But nothing says […]

[DARK R&B/BASS] Ty Dolla $ign – Or Nah (K Theory Remix) [Free Download]

k theory or nah

Shit. It’s a pretty big pot. Your back tenses you’ve got a decent hand, but is it enough? The other guy just went all-in doubling the pot. You know losing what you’ve already lost will cut you out of the game. Feeling the heat, you do your best to hide it— don’t give anything away. […]

It was always going to take a hardcore charm offensive to get me to fade my cold shoulder to ZHU’s ‘Faded’.  Look, I am a walking party. I ain’t got no judgements: I’m the kind of person that’ll jump on the motorbike of a person in Viet Nam I just met at the promise of a momentous […]

[DARK HOP] The Smiths-There’s a Light That Never Goes Out (RBTS WIN Cover)

That track that made a certain generation, and those who find it by heavy handed hinting in the direction (as Smiths fans hew towards). feel as though they belonged? Yeah, that’s ‘There is A Light That Never Goes Out’. By the title, you’d think it was some shallow anthem, but The Smiths were always too […]

[INDIE POP] Kidd Feather-Videotapes

artworks-000052703126-in0cww-t500x500

Memories and the mediums that we store them in can become boxes of poltergeists we use to afflict ourselves. When trauma smacks my heart and shoots blood laced with menacing memories into my brain, I pool all that blood into songs that latch onto the the mesh of my mind and intuitively interweave themselves out of sight. […]

[INDIETRONICA] Banks – Drowning (Lido Remix)

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 […]
