Justice Skolnik – You Could Be Down

After a long night of debauchery, it’s essential to afford your body and mind some well-deserved rest. Whether that involves buying a greasy breakfast and torching a bowl or chugging water and kicking back outside, it’s surely a better strategy than attempting to hit the ground running for another round of mass alcohol ingestion.

As I lay on my couch after scarfing down a much-needed plate of huevos rancheros – sans torched bowl – I’ve stumbled upon the perfect musical accompaniment to my day of recovery. A brand new joint from Justice Skolnik titled “You Could Be Down,” it finds the producer reimagining vocals from Brandy in a totally new context. As her performance behind the microphone is sped up and chopped up into exhilarating bits, jubilant synths bounce back and forth at a hypnotizing pace that envelops my mind whole.

It *almost* makes me want to take this entire Saturday easy, but alas, it is Halloween weekend; there’s simply too many strange memories ahead to throw in the towel now. Thus, chances are I’ll be repeating this recovery session tomorrow morning, but at least “You Could Be Down” will be there to soothe the soul.
