Don’t give your love away so easily, is what the mother tells the daughter. I imagine it’s what the prodigy tells an apprentice when listening to new music. It’s true, we should harness our love for music and we have every right to be picky. I think it’s the only other area in life where pickiness is rewarded (the other being in choosing romantic companions…though you can argue with me on that one.) Finding a good song is not only rewarding because of the pleasure it is bound to bring you, but the new relationship you’ve built. There’s a relationship that exists between the music maker and the product, which I find comprable to the thinker and the thoughts that are produced. Once the music (or thought) is put out into the world for others to interpret, it’s not longer just about your relationship. It’s about the connection between you and the audience, the listeners, the others.
Remember that. We serve up quality because you deserve to be picky, to come to a place where you can safely close your eyes and rely on what we provide to your ears.
This Slates remix has everything needed for a perfect summer track. I think I started listening to it last year, not quite during the summer time, but in the warmer months. The original is lovely, too. Both are lovely and want to send you on a sonically exciting journey.
