Mozambo & Basic Tape – Bright Side (ft. Julia Church)[RYI Remix]

You’ve gotta keep on fighting

You want to bring this on You’ve gotta keep on going

Shout it when the beat is on

Make the best with what you get

Take it all and fuck the rest

Get your shit together

Cheer up smoke a cigarette

You know this feeling

When the world stops turning

Focus on the the bright side

Life can make you bitter

But you’ll wake up stronger

So focus on the bright side

Lost forever out of sight Forget the sadness of your nights

Breath deeper than ever Stand up take another chance.”

Sometimes the lyrics say everything you wanted to say. “Focus on the bright side.”  I think this is a beautiful message for everyone right now.  Easier said then done, but I can tell you all from personal experience of dealing with a lot of shit in my life and a lot of shitty disappointing people that you can make the best of everything and be incredibly happy as I am right here right now.  Yes that is the life coach talking in me so if you don’t believe it’s possible hit me up personally and I will prove it to you!

Clicking through our submissions I couldn’t have been happier to find this gem, it’s saying everything that needs to be said for all of us in this moment.  Another sweet track coming to you straight from Amsterdam, seriously what is in the water over there because the music is on point and the vibes are on a deep and relevant level.

Keep your heads up, press play!

Mozambo x Pakem x Kungs x Julia Church – Soulmate

I usually go into detail about the elements of the songs I’m writing about. But not today. All you really need to know about this song is you should listen to it. Let it consume you for a few minutes.

Now, the important part- the content. Not only is it presented in a pleasurable way (that sultry voice!), but it conjures up thoughts in my mind that other songs can’t quite possibly. I used to have a notion of a “soulmate”- that one person I was destined to meet. Now I’m a skeptic. Thank you, men that have been in my love life. Thank you, college, for my first “soulmate” (or so I thought). I’m not saying I was extremely crushed, but I felt an intense connection, one that has not since been replicated, and it makes me wonder WHY this one person had such an impact on my love life. What was this “connection”? Was it innate, or did it evolve? What was it about just a simple kiss that transported my soul to another universe? A universe with just this moment, and him. I wanted so very badly to believe a connection is the sign of a soulmate, but the realistic side of me wants to brush the notion of a “soulmate” from my consciousness.

Is a “connection” enough? A lot of other factors are forced, by nature, into the mix. Maybe I was naive in college and believed that those forces were mere details. ‘We have a connection, that must mean something, right?’ Thoughts like this kept me going back to the possibility of an us. My idyllic views have changed slightly since this encounter, yet I stay optimistic about the idea of someone out there who fits me just right, whose quirks I find cute and not annoying, and with whom I feel a prolonged spark.

For now, my quest for a life partner continues…
