The Hangover 

n. something remaining behind from a former period

It has been a week since my crew’s trip to Boracay. It’s hard to get over the 12-hour happy hour by the beach while endlessly talking with my bestmates. This mix reminds me of those incredible days from taking a troublesome flight to losing my camera, dancing all night, oogling boys and drinking to our heart’s desire.Tracklisting: 01. Steve Aoki & Laidback Luke - Turbulence Featuring Lil Jon02. Swedish House Mafia - Don’t You Worry Child (Radio Edit) [feat. John Martin]03. Jack Back - Wild One Two Featuring David Guetta, Nicky Romero & Sia04. Mayer Hawthorne - Henny & Gingerale (Bakaboyz B-Mix)05. Tinie Tempah - Pass Out06. Theophilus London - Starry Eyed (Remix)07. Nicki Minaj - The Boys Featuring Cassie08. Kylie Minogue - Timebomb09. Jason Derulo - Don’t Wanna Go Home10. Rita Ora - How We Do (Party)11. Shwayze & Cisco - Drunk Off Your Love Featuring Sky Blu from LMFAO12. Don Omar & Lucenzo - Danza Kuduro13. Flo Rida - Whistle14. Rupert Holmes - Escape (The Piña Colada Song)15. Slightly Stoopid - Leaving On A Jet PlaneDOWNLOAD ZIP FILE // LISTEN ON 8TRACKS

"Daylight come and we don’t wanna go home."

P.S. The last few songs are dedicated to my crew so they are slightly off track from the rest of the playlist.

Alive by Hustle Roses

I’m in the business of being alive
I will not falter, i’ll never die

I hope you’re not tired because this was also featured in Gossip Girl during the actual Kiki de Montparnasse fashion show. Ollie Stone aka Hustle Roses has all the makings of a reincarnated 80s Madonna. This modern disco-pop songstress was once a part of an indie rock band called The Oohlas. She has now ventured into a more upbeat approach to her music and I can’t help but compare her to Kimbra (from Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know) or Feist’s earlier works. Just listen to her EP, Tequila Mockingbird at bandcamp to hear the similarity. One of her songs was written by Sia so that’s grand! Make sure to check Hustle Roses on Soundcloud, Facebook and on her official website!

Recommended to fans of: Feist or Kimbra or Oh Land

Soldier OnThis little mix has been a musical therapy for me these past few weeks. I’m slightly broken-hearted that my extended stay in a place that I really want to live in has come to an end. It sucks because I’ve grown accustomed to the wonderful things it offered. I was hoping this mix would help me bring myself back to the earthly (mundane?) life in the third-world. I asked my friend who was in the same position a year ago, if she ever forgot her time there. She said she was reminded of it everyday and the same thing is happening to me so there really is no point in forgetting. The only thing left to do is to move on and try to make do with what I have. So here’s a 10-track mix, to remove you from whichever rut you are in. I can’t really say that it’s going to motivate you since most of the tracks are really somber but I hope it helps you to keep on keeping on. If you’re itching for a little more upbeat mix of the same theme, go here.Track listing:
01. Lykke Li - Time Flies

So, fingers crossed, my time is coming now

02. The Temper Trap - Soldier On

No one will know when seasons cease to change and..How far we’ve gone, how far we’re going

03. Maverick Sabre - I Need

I need sunshine, I need angels, I need something good

04. Laura Marling - Failure

Don’t cry child, you’ve got so much more to live for

05. Sia - Breathe Me (Four Tet Remix)

Be my friend, hold meWrap me up, unfold meI am small and needyWarm me up and breathe me

06. Angus & Julia Stone - Chocolates & Cigarettes

One of these days I’ll grow old and I’ll grow brave

07. Slow Moving Millie - Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want

So for once in my life, let me get what I want

08. Slow Club - Never Look Back

But you had to go, but if you’d stayed,I’d have come around to hold your handtill the marching band had played.

09. Lykke Li - I Know Places

There is a road, there is a way, there is a place.

10. Michael Kiwanuka - Home Again

One day, I know, I’ll be strong again.

Bittersweet Promises

eat your heart out!

Another heart break mix for my friend, Bubbles who requested a mix to nurse her heartache about losing someone. The situation was similar to Adele’s Someone Like You ("Never mind, I’ll find someone like you. Don’t forget me, I beg."). The mix has a progression and it started with a guy breaking up with a girl. The mix conveys denial, sadness, acceptance and moving on.
Tracklisting:
01. Alex Clare - Too Close (Live Unplugged)

How do I say that I need to move on You know we’re headed separate ways

02. James Vincent McMorrow - Wicked Game

I never dreamed that I’d meet somebody like you And I never dreamed that I’d lose somebody like you

03. Feist - Let It Die

The saddest part of a broken heart is …Losing your mind for the sake of your heart

04. Robyn - With Every Heartbeat

So I don’t look backStill I’m dying with every step I take

05. Birdy - I’ll Never Forget You

I’ll never forget youYou make me so angry

06. Sia - You Have Been Loved

Will you ever know that the bitterness and anger left me long ago?Only sadness remains and it will pass

07. Angus & Julia Stone - I’m Not Yours

Jump into your white mobile and run awayYou’re always leaving me behind

08. Kimbra - Withdraw

I can’t keep withdraw your heart from mine.You’re the one thing that sticks right onto my sideHow’d I get so stuck to your side?

09. Florence And The Machine - Blinding

No more dreaming like a girl so in love, so in love

10. James Morrison - The Pieces Don’t Fit Anymore

There’s no trying when the pieces don’t fit anymore

11. Girls - Hellhole Ratrace

I’ve got a sad song in my sweet heartAnd all I really ever need is some love and attention

12. Amy Winehouse - Tears Dry (Original Version)

He takes the day but I’m grownAnd in your grey, in this blue shadeMy tears dry on their own

Down On Love (Rainy Season Mixtape)Written on June 2, 2011
A short mix to accompany us during this gloomy rainy season. Last year, I made a similar playlist entitled, Un Parapluie Et Une Chanson Pour Toi.  The theme was more on falling in love and now I’m doing the opposite. I  was inspired to make this playlist while reading Michel Faber’s Crimson Petal and the White.  The weather was nice for lying in bed and listening to somber tunes so  it seemed like a good idea to make a playlist that time.
