Always Sunrise


It is always sunrise somewhere, nothing ever dies at once, rain is always falling, waves are always crashing. Eternal sunrise, eternal sunset, eternal dawn, on water, on earth, on hills, in gardens, in cities, everywhere, always, as the world turns. The grand show is eternal.

The One You Love

You always hurt the one you love/ The one you shouldn’t hurt at all/ You always take the sweetest rose/ And crush it till the petals fall/ You always break the kindest heart/ With a hasty word you can’t recall/ So if I broke your heart last night/ It’s because I love you most of all

I Got What You Need

It’s not so much who you love, what matters is that you love. Every day and in every way, make an effort to love. Be more lovable and more loving. Remember that all the darkness in the world can’t put out the light of a single candle. Spread your light and spread your love. This is how every one of us can help to heal our world.

Soulmates

When bae

“People think a soulmate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants, but it isn’t true. A true soulmate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life. A true soulmate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. Soulmates reveal another layer of yourself to you. Their purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego, show you your obstacles and addictions. Soulmates make you transform. They break your heart open so new light can get in.” EG

Alone With You At Last

The owls are not what they seem

Not one of us is all good or all bad, this is something we don’t always like to admit or recognize. No one person or group of persons is entirely praiseworthy or entirely at fault. We are responsible for ourselves, but we are also responsible for each other. Competition and altruism are not mutually exclusive. Neither are failure and success, hatred and love, darkness and light, wrong and right, ending and beginning, myself and you. Each of us fails as individuals when the human race fails to love itself completely. We really are in this together, whether we like it or not. Everything is a choice between fear and love, and death is coming. Fear or love, my friends, at every moment, you must decide. Death is coming, so choose love.

Please Don’t Go

The midnight stars above Hawaii are second to nothing. In the midst of darkness, light persists. The sound of the midnight ocean, the black slow crash of waves can break the heart. It’s not the strongest or the fittest that survive, it’s those that can best manage to change. Life is beautiful and love is everything. All of nature is music.

More Tea

Drink more tea

Here’s a new track with a nice backstory.

Dylan gained special access to a fantastic archive of 20 year old DAT recordings from remote villages in China on condition that he promote Chinese tea culture. The track came out beautifully and there’s some real heavy hitters on the remix tip. Dylan also scored rare high grade tea for promotional giveaways.

Dylan thinks I don’t like his music since I seldom include his songs in my dj sets. Of course I love Dylan and I love his music, but he doesn’t get handicap points just because we’re married. I’m still impartially discerning and ruthlessly selective with all my music choices. “More Tea” makes the cut and the remixes are lush.

“More Tea” officially drops today.

Dance Bitch

The title track from Sad Dance Songs, A Rick and Morty concept album by Allie Goertz. The album contains five tracks with references and samples from the show. With this project, Goertz sought to match the “beauty, darkness, and lunacy” of Rick and Morty. Sad Dance Songs features synth-heavy dance tracks accompanied by ethereal melancholy vocals. It goes without saying that I love this.

Do You Feel It?


Rain

Strength comes from learning to control your emotions, which is not the same as ignoring what you feel or pretending your feelings aren’t real. If an emotion can’t change conditions or improve the situation, the emotion isn’t useful. Your emotions in fact are often destructive, but you have the right to feel what you feel. No one said you can’t ever cry. It’s okay to be angry, upset or discouraged, but it’s not okay to quit, because in life it doesn’t matter what happens to you, or who is to blame for all the problems, setbacks and mistakes. What matters is what you do with what happens, what matters is how you deal with what you’ve been dealt, what matters is not what you feel, but how you handle yourself.

Music for slow scans of sunrise horizons gazing through glass listening through headphones riding trains alone, for daydreaming, for solitude, for lovemaking, and for pure listening. Beautiful work.

Secret Girlfriends

This one’s pretty much “for the ladies.” To all the electronic girls I’ve loved before et cetera. Listeners whose vaginas are more metaphorical in nature should I think find this set for them as well and equally pleasing. That previous Dancehall mix took me a million days to make. This set took me two days. Guess that’s what happens when “pleasing the musical vagina” is the Modus Operandi. This mix is everything a classic vagina should appreciate.
