Moullinex – To Be Clear (RAC Mix)

The men of RAC seem to be having a fantastic summer because the tunes just keep cranking out. I’m personally happy that their creative juices are flowing because I highly benefit from this stroke of brilliance. This track breathes a new life of its own, completely separate from the original. Moullinex’s seductive voice and lyrics make for a hard to miss summer tune that keeps your ears happy with a solid beat. I also love when vocal samples are messed with in a way that makes them sound like an extension of the synth’s work.

I listened to this song yesterday on my new walk home (I discovered an easier way to get home by taking a train that now goes over a bridge and directly to my hood…why I didn’t discover it sooner, I’m not sure) and I felt really happy about a couple of things. After a conversation with my mom, where we talked for about half an hour despite my insistence on “not having any news to share”, I was content with the knowledge that no news can really be good news. And honestly, when we’re hustling the way that we do, working every single day to make our lives the best that we possibly can, there always is news. It’s just that none of it is worth sharing, because it is only news for you and no one else. I guess I was happy to know that I seemed to be doing okay by not only myself, but by others (in this case my mom). I also felt happy because I knew that this upcoming month would be a time of self-reflection and clarity for me, due to a couple of personal things. I look forward to it and welcome it, but know that it’s going to mean a lot of emotions, with ultimately, a lot of learning.

So I had an iTunes nightmare Friday night which ended up in me losing all my playlist, client work and DJ selections. Everything I do is based on my organization so the magnitude of this fail is so ridiculous that I’ve found it hard to even have an emotion about it. Instead I’ve been up for the last 48 hours re-doing all the work due in the next few days and pretty much rebuilding my work life. I haven’t had much time to think about it because the consequences of not bouncing back immediately don’t allow it but I’m realizing that this is how all problems should be dealt with – objectively. I could sit here, cry about it, look up to the sky and ask why me or I could void the unnecessary emotions and immediately get fixing the problem. I don’t know if it’s experience kicking in or what but I’m digging this new reaction, it feels kinda like that picture up there – blank.

You ever see Roger Federer lose a point? You ever see him win one? The reaction or lack thereof is pretty much streamlined no matter the outcome. I was always fascinated by that nuance and now I think I’ve really starting to understand it. Win or lose a point, 40-love or love-40, the ONLY objective is to win the next one. When you think about it that way it’s hard to justify worrying about some things.

Anyways, I should be working right now but I couldn’t leave you guys hanging for another day so I had to take a break. I’ve been listening to nothing but world music for a hotel chain in China but this morning on my way to poison my body with more coffee I was playing the latest playlist from the ShaveUrLegz.com crew and it fit the mood perfectly so I thought to share, enjoy…
