JMSN – Alone (Kastle Remix)

When I was in school, I wrote a term paper on the subject of genre: What does the term mean? Has it outlived its utility?

The Weeknd – Wicked Games (Mendez Rework)

Wicked Games is probably one of my favorite songs of all-time, let alone, by The Weeknd. A quality piece of music transports me to another place entirely — emotionally, mentally, and physically.
