The xx – Islands (Nosaj Thing Remix)

I’ve been in SoCal for almost two weeks now and it’s amazing just how slow paced life out here can be. I can’t seem to get accustomed to the time difference so its bad enough that I wake up 3 hours ahead of everyone but the lifestyle here is leisurely, I love it. Don’t confuse that with lazyness though, people out here still get it done, I myself feel more on the grind then ever, just without the excess worry and hurry you tend to feel on Broadway. So i’ll be…

Naturally, the music I’m listening to out here is bound to be on the slower side to fit the atmosphere. It’s also not a surprise that it would be by artist who call Cali home, which is why I’ve had this Nosaj Thing Remix of Islands on repeat for the last 2 hours. Nosaj aka Jason Chung is a young and very talented producer with a distinctive atmospheric sound and absolutely no respect for genres or any stylistic parallels for that matter. I’ve got another week left in sun so I have to get outside and keep this momentum going, enjoy.
