Rad Playlist – 2018 So Far

leave a comment »

Digital playlists: are they worth anything? They’re more popular as memes than anything else. That says something about their status within modern culture, right? Whatever…

I just made a playlist but I’m thinking of it as a mixtape cause I burned it to a CD. It has to have been close to five years since I last burned a CD. When was the last time you made a playlist? Burned a CD? Or made a mixtape? Try to remember, and take a moment to appreciate the value of physical formats. The care and concern that goes into moving music from the digital ether into the physical realm is an effort worth treasuring. Be sure to indulge in music you can hold in your hands every once in a while. Like the playlist below…

2018 So Far

Rad Music // Marc Baker – “No Place I’d Rather Be”

leave a comment »

I think about blogging a lot. I miss it. I just don’t have the time. Sure, I could probably make some more time, but it’s low on my priority list. I’m writing this right now to distract myself from something more important. Go figure. As I was saying, I think about blogging a lot. Access to new music is so unbelievable in this age of knowledge and there is so much music I want to share with others. Maybe I’ll start blogging more…

Marc Baker – “No Place I’d Rather Be”

Marc Baker seems like a fun guy. He exudes a New Wave aesthetic both in his look and sound. He put out an EP recently. The standout track for me is “No Place I’d Rather Be.” I have been listening to this song nonstop. It is upbeat and poppy in the best of ways. A love song of sorts, the melody will make you think of someone special as you get lost in your movement. It makes me want to dance like I’m part of The Breakfast Club. Feel this groove if you know what’s good for you. You can download it for free from his website.

Rad Music // Justice – “Randy”

leave a comment »

 

Justice has a new song: it’s called “Randy.”

“Randy” is a yummy culmination of everything and everyone you’ve grown to love about French electronic music: Daft Punk, Boyz Noize, Fred Falke, Sebstien Tellier, SebastiAn, Breakbot, Jamaica, Kavinsky, etc.. Justice sit among the modern kings of electronic music dominated by their fellow French kin.

“Randy” pops and oozes with French flavor; it urges you to move along with its rockin’ fall anthemic beats, keys, and strings. Justice are shining bright with this new single and you’ll soon been listening to it non-stop. You may even get a little obsessed. The video is rad – almost hypnotic. Every sound rings with optimism: it’s moving. “Randy” is your guiding light as you fall through the calm and chaos of your autumn days.

Justice have a new album, Woman, coming out early next month and “Randy” is the second single. “Safe and Sound” was their first.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

This song. You need this song. I want you to listen to “Daydream” by Dystopian Chic as you start your day. Let this song envelop you as you embrace its ominous nostalgic beat. Hear the horns and soak in the vibrations this song is offering. Get yourself feeling optimistic, determined, and ready to be rad. It feels like a theme song, so let it be your theme songs towards awesomeness today. Feel it! Take in this beat and feel what rad music has to offer.

“Daydream” by Dystopian Chic

Dystopian Chic is making music out of Japan and I like what they’re doing. Check out their Soundcloud for a boatload of more tunes.

Be Rad. Enjoy.

Rad Playlist – August 2016

August just flew by didn’t it?

Flux is in the air. There is growth and development all around me. I feel it. I want to be rad with all of my fellow rad humans. People are out there being rad and doing rad things! You and I should be too!

 

Maybe you need a reminder about how “far away” you are. Or maybe you’ve been feeling like you’re “losing” it. The summer heat doesn’t stop. Will you make “history?” Or maybe you do need more “sunshine.” Whatever you do, “you better” actually do it. You’ve got “everything you need.”

Be Rad. Enjoy.
