TRANSLATORS NOTE: We invite you chill with us during your spare time whilst enjoying a gentlemane’s collection of rare Internet eccentricities and worldy, inspirational werks.
01. David Douglas – California Poppy (Solar Bears Remix)
Dunno if u noticed, but I tried my best to chill out as hard as I could this weekend. It was definitely successful with help from this track right hya! California Poppy is like a gently push back into bed for a much needed pre-dailygrind cuddling. While you’re there, imagine yourself floating upon a bed of lush flora knowing that da real world is here and now. Solar Bears have consistently delivered with their last couple of remixes for the likes of Keep Shelly In Athens, How To Dress Well, and Young Montana? The same goes for their latest touch on David Douglas’ California Poppy.
Solar Bears’ music is that beautiful bond of nature~technology by a special cosmic glue called inspiration. Everything under the sun influences Solar Bears, and with every one of their releases it’s as if we’re witnessing a musical micro-evolution in response to Western pop music’s now-quantified stagnation (according to recently published studies by some research-bros).
Or if you’re just tryna chill and not read all that like me (lol), trees will definitely help you out. I checked out David Douglas‘ debut EP, Royal Horticulture instead! If you enjoy photosynthesis-based real talk:
David Douglas (1983) is a Dutch producer of electronic music. David Douglas (1799) was a Scottish plant hunter who explored North America collecting seeds of plants and trees unknown to mankind at that time. Inspired by the Scottish botanist David started looking for his own musical seeds. The greatness of nature – the sublime mountain landscapes, Icelandic lupine fields, arctic coastlines, Californian fir forests – invigorate his music.
02. MVSCLES – where you are
Shoutout to skeptics who question buzz-acts like MVSCLES who gain critical acclaim pop out of nowhere.
Wherever you are; this is where you are. You don’t need Master’s-level insight to guide you on this one. Learn to werk with what you’ve got and let it all out. When no one’s doing it right, DIY. No matter how much you blame the State of the Union, The Weeknd, or your dog for eating your creativity, always remember there’s always a hard-working yung trillionaire a couple trap-houses down the street cookin’ up the next highly-bloggable beats.
Kinda side note: I vote TRILL as 2012’s word of the year because if you’re true and real with yourself and your passions, you too can become blogworthy. Here’s to a trill future! Trill trill trill
MVSCLES, thanks for flexin’ where you are 🙂
03. Blood Diamonds feat. Grimes – Phone Sex (Jensen Sportag Remix)
Depending on who you are, there might be something inside you (it’s hard to explain) while listening to Phone Sex. Uh
O~ I’ve fallen (back on my bed in a sexy pose) and I can’t get up because of leaving Pure Wet and The Wet Mix on repeat.
04. Flying Lotus – lamentedmix3 Instrumental
Speaking of quickies, you can do a lot in a minute 40 seconds.
