Hunger of the Pine by Alt-J

Une immense espérance a traversé la terre
Une immense espérance a traversé ma peur

Alt-J’s new record is a slow burner, it takes a few listen before I got to appreciate it fully. You have to wait for it, to let it envelop you and to let it trickle down to the very depths of your ears.

A sensational feeling once you start embracing it and hearing those 2 lines in French being whispered softly by Joe Newman. Those lines which meant, "A great hope has traversed the land, a great hope has crossed my fear." was taken from a poem called L’Espoir en Dieu by Alfred de Musset. It was a nice touch as well as a tiny sample from Miley Cyrus’ 4x4. It seems that Alt-J is in the right direction for their sophomore record, This Is All Yours.

Long Walks & Recorded TalksSealing the summer with a deep house mix. Quoting a Brit named James, “so fucking deep”, as he took over my music during our last night in Bangkok. I did not really mind since it gave me leave to talk to more people without worrying about the background music. We all bonded over our shared predicament of staying in because of the curfew and our very limited supply of alcohol. Here’s to summer nights of gripping conversations with strangers, worn out maps but still getting lost and long walks with my favorite people in search for a secret “fertility” shrine. We found it with unrelenting “D”etermination. Hello danslecielinfini and debriefingtheboys!01. Bondax - Giving It All02. Chris Malinchak - If U Got It03. Sub Focus - Close Featuring MNEK04.

HIP HOP FRIDAYS || 2 On (TOKiMONSTA Remix) by Tinashe

Live fast, die young that’s my choice

The original production by DJ Mustard was taken to another level by TOKiMONSTA, a producer from LA. The remixed was flipped and reversed the right way but still leaving the “ratchet” intact and splicing Tinashe’s vocals to match the faster tempo. This is me ending the weekday on a high note.
