Haunted Days – Next Winter

Haunted Days has come through with an utterly beautiful track that just might be my favorite release of the year. It’s understated yet dramatic, freezing yet familiar, classic yet forward-thinking. The producer has delivered a blend of sounds that sit somewhere on an isolated iceberg in a sea of dusty hip-hop percussion, evaporating vocal samples, and keys that circulate through the mist with a melodramatic sigh. Everything about this song is a visceral experience that takes you away to a totally different headspace between dreams and reality, like a deep meditation where conscious thought drifts away and a deeper connection with the universe is fostered.

I’m an absolute preacher of meditation’s benefits. We might be at our most technologically advanced point in human history, but we’ve totally lost touch with ourselves amidst these urban jungles where overstimulation from lights and crowds and noise channel us into a chaotic state whether it’s conscious or unconscious. Meditation allows me to dive into a pure state of being where all the noise fades away, all preconceived societal notions of what’s right and what’s wrong to internally experience drifts into nothingness, and I become one with my truest self. I do twenty minutes of meditation every day, attempt to do 40 minutes of meditation most days, and will continue to do so as this is a vital practice that rejuvenates my earthly body with the powers of the comsos.
