It has been awhile since I’ve opened up Spotify and got lost in some music. I switch back and forth between jamming to Pandora on my phone, and then if I’m not listening to Internet Radio, I’m jamming to some podcasts or music I’ve downloaded. Nevertheless, Spotify never disappoints me in my quest for new music, and today I found a beautiful track that you really ought to check out.
The track I’m absolutely loving right now is Hackman’s “Agree To Disagree.” With minimal lyrics, this track is a beautiful instrumental exploration of the essence of opposing sounds reaching a mutual plane of existence.
Now, in case you are wondering how I found this track (as well of some of the others below,) it’s all based on a station created to the sounds of Bondax’s “Gold.” So if you want to get into this groove and create, make a new radio based of “Gold” and you’ll get lost in the zone!
When I’m not using Pandora, I’m on soundcloud.com exploring new music and checking out tracks from DJs and producers that follow me. You see, normally I find mixes that I’m digging on other blogs, but this one was actually a delightful find on soundcloud.com.
The mix I’m talking about is a really chill mix by Borneland that is soulfully housey, with deep groovin’ at moments…with hints of chillness. Does any of that make sense? Well probably not, but what I’m trying to say is it’s a nice mix with some tracks from Mario Basanov, Issac Tichauer, Cassian, and so many more!
So grab your headphones and download this great free mix from Borneland.
I’ve found a lot of great tracks on Pandora that I’ve heard on stations based on my musical taste; Osunlade, Gigamesh, Maceo Plex, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
So while listening to my station based off Maceo Plex, I was pleasantly surprised to hear a groovy-pop track by Shy Child called, “The Beatles.” Mind you, this isn’t a new song, but it’s still a great track worth posting. Well in my opinion, it’s a friggin’ awesome track!
The best thing about this song, is honestly, the lyrics. The lyrics are infused with this playful hint of rebellion, especially in the lines, “If it feels so right, how can anybody call it wrong? Jealousy belongs to everyone. Wanting turns to needing, and we take it from whoever we can get it from.”
Listen to the song below. It’s from Shy Child’s 2010 EP Liquid Love.
Speaking of The Beatles, one of my favorite songs by them is “Come Together.” The beat of that song is so good, and of course the speculated meanings of it referencing drugs are sure to get one thinking. But, whether it’s about drugs or overdosing, one thing that is apparent is it’s still a pretty timeless track.
