Beat of my drum

In the search for the perfect spring hit, this song is certainly a great candidate (along with RAC’s remix of Modern Love by Coast, and Du Tonc’s Animals, to mention a few).

This explosion of feel-good tunes comes from the NYC/LA based duo Powers, consisting of Mike Del Rio & Crista Ru. They are also known for featuring on The Knocks’ hit Classic last summer.

It is spring time! For some years now I have had this song as my own soundtrack for the lighter days in March. Such a chillaxing song that reminds of the sensation when you finally feel the sun on your skin again after a long winter. I am sure all the Scandinavians out there definitely know what I am talking about..

This song is by the Norwegian artist Erlend Øye, who never stops being cool. One of my absolute favorite tunes of all time!

Don’t forget to follow my new Spring playlist, which will keep on being updated in the months to come!

 

Something about you

My absolute favorite song lately is Something About You by the Sydney-based artist Hayden James. It is the second track out of the Teen Idols compilation by the music label Future Classic. The compilation includes various tracks released on Future Classic throughout 2014, and I can also highly recommend Touch Sensitive’s Teen Idols track from that same bunch.

Happy weekend! Don’t forget that you can find all my recent song findings in the Winter playlist.

One of my favorite tunes as of lately is this chill remix by the Berlin-based producer Daniele di Martino. I am a big fan of this guy’s music, and his remix of Railway has been on repeat for months.

The song is downloadable for free through Soundcloud, for those who still prefer the old-fashioned offline way.

PS: Some of you may have noticed that the updates have been getting less and less frequent in the past month or so. Due to the immense amount of work from grad studies and internship this year I am not able to blog as much as I am used to. In the near future I’ll do my best to keep on sharing posts from time to time, but I will anyways keep updating my Soundcloud playlists with new music several times a week, so be sure to follow there for more earcandy ♡

 

Wear sunscreen

“If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience…I will dispense this advice now.

babbc69a61d2f4f1dfe63e81864ae5bc

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.

eb872db04501c8372594d8fe72be7e58

But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you imagine. Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday. Do one thing everyday that scares you.

bfb554566e4f802bc05f7121620b9aec

Sing. Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with people who are reckless with yours. Floss. Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements. Stretch.

ec4641613bc08143f81ca2a70733cb3d

 Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don’t. Get plenty of calcium. Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone. Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s.

2e88dcc7c9db9f8c9df63bffbe3c9e5c

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.. Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

ebd0072d47d174105245c06323f4f9d3

Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly. Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future. Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young.

56f4d47cb534369ee37b66f404a24f04

Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

6268bb15256859c256482fea665869066e654b85cf2042de82ce679815677e9a

Travel. Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders. Respect your elders. Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out. Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you’re 40, it will look 85. Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it’s worth. But trust me on the sunscreen…”

When the waves break

A smashing new remix by the Miami-based producer Artec. He also made a pretty epic video for it, which you can see here. The song is a remix of Sister by the American singer-songwriter Andrew Belle, taking it from slow indie to fast-paced house.

For just having been in the business for a year, this guy has really taken his music, production and media presence to a very professional level. Amazing. Get your free download of the song through Soundcloud!

 

Let us Stay in the Light

 

I absolutely adore this music video, from Swedish Dream Lake’s single Let Us Stay in the Light. The video is taken from Sweden in the 60s, and perfectly describes the idyllic Scandinavian summer feeling. So lovely! The video was actually taken by the father of Niklas Lidholm, the male member of the duo. The song itself is also so beautiful! More from them here.
