Shura – Indecision (Jungle Remix)

I’m beginning to see indecision as a form of reckless passivity, another self-deprecating behavior that justifies itself via chronic remorse. In a world stimulated by action and reaction, where fear and love are the driving forces behind the choices we make, it becomes necessary to realize that indecision is a choice and duality is the human condition.

Libérez-vous

Si vous êtes pris dans le rêve de l’autre; vous êtez foutus. If you’re trapped in the dream of the Other, you’re fucked. –Gilles Deleuze, Thousand Plateaus

We are the mirror as well as the face in it.

Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along. We are the mirror as well as the face in it. We are tasting the taste this minute of eternity. We are pain and what cures pain, both. We are the sweet cold water and the jar that pours. I want to hold you […]

Gorillaz – Feel Good Inc. (Harmonimix)

Released under his Harmonimix alias, James Blake’s rework of the Gorillaz classic “Feel Good Inc.”, hit a spot I didn’t know existed. Damn, bass chakras. Eerie in the best way possible, this track feels like a dirge through space: so sinister, so satisfying. Gritty textures evoke an air of gloom that echoes through the deeper recesses of mind, […]

D’Angelo – Ain’t That Easy

Take a toke of smoke from me as you dream inside Let your days slip away come with me and ride… He’s back. I know I’m about a month late on this one, but if you haven’t yet taken the time to listen to D’Angelo’s third album I am here to tell you that it […]

The Rest Between Two Notes

My life is not this steeply sloping hour, in which you see me hurrying. Much stands behind me; I stand before it like a tree; I am only one of many mouths and at that, the one that will be the soonest. I am the rest between the notes, which are somehow always in discord […]

Amadou & Mariam – Ce N’est Pas Bon (JD Twitch edit)

Hypocrisy in politics, It’s not good. It’s not good. We don’t want any. Demagogy in politics, It’s not good. It’s not good. We don’t want any. Dictatorship in politics, It’s not good. It’s not good. We don’t want any. Happiness, happiness for the people, Love, love for the people. It’s not good. It’s not good. […]

Romare – Pusherman

Romare does it again. Killer groove & smutty samples with his signature cut and paste stylings, dig it. I’ve written about at least two other Romare tracks this year– this up and coming British producer is definitely one to check out if you’ve yet to experience his magic. Pusherman is the B side to his latest 12″ […]

Charles Bradley – Why Is It So Hard (live on KEXP)

Then I moved to Brooklyn, New York Had hard times…But sometimes I hold on… Some days I feel pretty weary; there’s only so much a human can do for other people before she breaks. Grown up responsibilities got me down this week. Not enough time for the work I love and for the brain stretching […]

Feist – Caught A Long Wind (Nicolas Jaar edit)

Nicolas Jaar‘s essential mix never gets old. It’s been over two years since its release and it still gives me the chills. To me it still completely reeks of Autumn 2012, one of the most intense seasons I’ve yet to endure— Hurricane Sandy and the End of the World all in the span of a couple […]
