Snakehips & MØ – Don’t Leave (Gryffin Remix)

I remember it clear as day…I was about to move at the age of 16 and was *beyond* in love with a girl. I wanted to say fuck the distance and stay together, but she was always the independent one and decided that it was best if we went our separate ways. I cried a ton and then built up some serious emotional walls because it felt like there was no way anyone could love her the way I did…from the crush in our elementary days to standing by her side as a best friend through years of bullshit to the overwhelming love I felt then.

Would my life be different now if she didn’t make that decision? Yeah, probably… But man, *years* have gone by and that shit still hurts when I think back on it. Hell, she added me on Facebook to see how I was doing a few months ago and seeing her with someone else still stung like walking into a giant wasp hive. I don’t blame her in the slightest for wanting to split up, I mean it was high school and all, but still…it’s crazy that so many years later, I still haven’t come within miles of loving someone the way I loved that girl.

As an old friend I really am happy to see her doing so well these days…but I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that part of me still wonders if anyone will ever love her better.

Inspired by the mythical power of the full moon and the famous parties of Southeast Asia, MATTE’s Full Moon develops this narrative with New York’s distinct culture and edge – a transcendental beach party in the center of New York Harbor with sounds, art and food from a carefully curated lineup of musicians, DJs, artists, and chefs.

Full Moon 2013 is New York’s not-to-be-missed summer music event, blurring the line between festival and dance party. In 2012, Full Moon was attended by over 2,500 of New York’s finest and written up by titles such as Bullett Magazine, NY Mag and VICE.

This year, The Beach at Governors Island serves as an urban paradise for Full Moon – a sunset over the Statue of Liberty, a moonrise over Lower Manhattan.

Full Moon’s 2013 lineup will feature Miami Horror, Tanlines, Wild Belle, Cyril Hahn, Float Fall, The Knocks, Yuksek, & more.

Wild Belle – It’s Too Late (Snakehips Remix)

I really wanted a mellow, feel good Sunday track and I got even more then I had hoped for with this remix of Wild Belle’s “Its Too Late”.  London’s own Ollie Dickinson AKA: Snakehips, took the groove too the next level with some more base and a hip-hop/club style feel, a remix that you can really move too, but chill and feel the calm in the midst of any crowd or any situation.  Don’t front, I know the SWAG has captured you!

It’s a great track to wind down your week/weekend while listening to Natalie Bergman’s sexy bedtime vocal’s you can really breakdown anything that was thrown at you during the week with a peace of mind.  It’s amazing how the tone of someones voice can change everything. I mean can you imagine if you were having a horrible argument with someone except you both were talking in sultry sexy bedtime voices, that argument probably would turn into some steamy love making, just sayin’…

Lately I have been finding lyrics that have resonated for me so perfectly..

Now that you want me it’s too late 
It’s too late for love 
Or when you got me 
You don’t care 
It’s too late for love 

I’m tired, so tired of playing … 
My mind is made up 
Uuuuuh uuuh 
I’m not coming back to you 

I need a man that treats me right 
He’ll treat me right 
He’ll feed me supper more than twice 
Yes he will, yes yes, he will 
I’m not asking for lots of fancy toys 
I don’t need a lot of fancy toys 
Someone to keep me warm at night.”

..And when “it’s too late”, it’s too damn late.  Whether it’s friends, boyfriends or girlfriends I don’t think you have to look at these lyrics in one way.  However you want to apply them, do so.  Thanks Wild Belle, I needed this, and it has made my Sunday too good, hope this groovin’, sexy, boss remix gives you the same chill vibrations it’s given me, enjoy!
