Robosonic & Mat.Joe – Got Game

This is a bad to the bone, sexy, bass heavy, head nodding, club rocking banger. It samples one of the dopest Hip Hop tracks, 50 & Games Hate It or Love It, which Robosonic  flips with that classic deep house/hip hop flavor only he can bring. Got Game, I love that title because it represents everything I’m about right now.

Since the 3rd grade I’ve lived in a highly competitive performance based world – entertainment. It’s a world where your shit has to be tight or you don’t make the cut. You deliver or you’re done, you’re aware, you know what’s up, you’re really fucking good at what you do and that’s the bottom line. Often times the things expected of you are complex, i.e. deliver something totally subjective that a lot of people agree with, be compelling to strangers, predict the future, amaze and delight – you get the idea. It sounds rough but when it’s your lifestyle you learn the consistencies and you figure it out.

All the while you develop and appreciation for details because in this world it’s the details that separate the good from the great.  You appreciate when someone consistently delivers, you appreciate high level communication, when someone has intention and conviction, when they take care of their appearance, have wisdom, charm or anything else that represents an effort. It says they’re on top of their shit. I know what you’re thinking, materialistism, phoniness, etc but that’s a cope out; what I’m referring to is top to bottom excellence. We all dream about ideals right? For example in love, women want that tough, super sensitive, romantic, handsome, intelligent, highly spiritual and loving man. Guys want that homely, innocent yet sexual, beautiful, stylish and stunning girl who melts your heart with her looks, flowing fairy tale hair and smells so good when she leaves you can’t think of anything else.  That’s called game tight and let me tell you something, it’s real. What you want, it’s out there, it’s no fantasy.

Often times we settle for less because we undervalue ourselves! We don’t love or believe in ourselves enough to keep fighting and searching for what will truly make us happy, not just what’s right in front at the moment. On top of that, to get what you want you have to be what you want. You also have to understand that the world isn’t a fixed thing, you can literally create anything you want but first you have to get free.

I know many people hate on LA and for the right reasons, I know people hate on NYC, for the right reasons as well. Many people despise the entertainment industry but when you grow in those places you distinguish between the real and the fake and trust me when you find real in NY or LA or entertain, it’s real. Those 3 have shown me what game is, what truly being exceptional in ALL facets of life is about. Get game, enjoy.

Games – Back In Time

A lof of grown men who entered puberty in the 80s have become very skilled with synthesizers, and the result is some very erotic music. While I’m by no means an aficionado on the subject, the sound clearly pays homage to the golden age of the pornography soundtrack. And Games’ “Back In Time” would fit in perfectly in a late Jack Horn film (post-Diggler era).

Initially, this was all I could find online about Games:

“Games is a synth-collab. might take alot to enjoy this. it is very fucking groovy. enjoy”

Games actually used to be the pseudonym for the synthed-out collaboration Ford & Lopatin–who then had to change the name because The Game apparently wasn’t cool with a pornwave duo using a similar name as him.  Ford & Lopatin are a very underrated power synth/production duo and this was *probably* their first release. If you’re a fan of Todd Terje and Lindstrom, I highly suggest you peep their entire album Channel Pressure.

These guys make baby-making tunes that I’m running out of words to describe. They set the mood, and they may be caked with too much cheese for some, but they’re perfect for those late night playlists. Get very fucking groovy.
