Fab Four And The Russian Pirates Of Sound

Did you ever visit St. Petersburg in the early nineties?

If you did, my next question to you is: How many pirate CDs/DVDs did you bring home with you?

Quite a few, no doubt. A box set of the sitcom Friends perhaps? Or Sting’s entire catalog? Or maybe you just bought a few famous CDs like The Dark Side Of The Moon by Pink Floyd and Born In The U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteen…

Music to Expand Your Mind

The music to expand your mind playlist has one goal to set. That goal is to prove that both mainstream and underground musicians are equally talented and deserve recognition. From musicianship, to audio production, or lyrical concepts, these elements are all crafted in a unique delivery that needs to be heard regardless of the artist status.

Music to Nirvana

Growing up around my grandfather not only brought great memories, but also gave me great taste in music. He would play artist from Biggie, Tupac, and Lauryn Hill to Frank Sinatra (among other artists) and it wasn’t just the “hit” songs played on the radio. He’d a play full body of work, and it made me appreciate the artist more…

Caitlin Moss - Music to Curator Interview

My name is Caitlin Moss. I live in Los Angeles, CA in the United States. I currently teach music and work as a drummer in a few bands. 

Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do?  What Do You Enjoy About It? I’ve wanted to be a musician since I started playing drums over 20 years ago. I’ve always loved the way playing drums feels, getting to be with other musicians, creating new things, being in the moment and performing in front of people. I didn’t realize I wanted to teach until I was working with youth in another capacity and realized how much I enjoyed it…

Music to Take Over The Night

Night rides, cheap motels, gas stations, low-key parties, take away drinks, complex relationships, suburban heroes, suppressed feelings... Once they’re all together, they seem to be connected to each other somehow and you see that the whole image is kind of a culture which is embraced by the masses. In the last couple of months, I’ve seen and met so many people who are sleeping in the daytime, living like a bat all night long till the last light is turned off. So many stories out there…

Music to Watch The Apocalypse

It's hard to be born into a world that's crumbling. It's an existential crisis that has wormed its way into the collective consciousness of every generation: "what if it all ends, right here and right now". The only difference between those generations past and us is that we very well may actually be here to see it all.

2/ Is This Something You Always Wanted To Do? What Do You Enjoy About It?

Yes, this is something I have wanted to do at least for the last 6 years. I realised I loved discovering new music and what bummed me out was people's low tolerance towards new and good music. Everyone listens to the same kind of generic stuff that everyone else is listening to. As a result, some great artists and great music get ignored. My aim was to bring the less heard music to people: it started with me sharing music with friends and now it extends to the world. I get a kick out of people telling me that they loved what I introduced them to.

It’s like this. You know that scene in The Devil Wears Prada, where Anne Hathaway has gone through a complete makeover because she wants to impress her boss? And she walks through the NYC streets in all of her new high-fashion outfits? She’s hailing cabs, running across the street in heels (somehow elegantly?), and she’s walking through the office like she owns the place as the song Vogue by Madonna plays…

Music to Navigate A Life

My wedding... God, what a bloody awful day that was. We'd caught the back-end of some major storm, As we left the church, in a soaking shivering huddle, the organist hit the third verse of MORNING HAS BROKEN.

‘Mine is the sunlight. Mine is the morning.’

And suddenly, out came the sun…

Music to Therapize Yourself

I'm a musician, songwriter and a music producer from Italy.

I love to create playlists for each moment of my everyday life.

Music is like a therapy, I have an emotional connection to the craft and I truly enjoy and love sharing music with friends and people I really take care. The pure energy of music is often better than the most part of medicines, to cure the difficulties, the anxieties and the fears that undermine our daily well-being…

(Re)Mixing It Up - An Interview with Save the World Featured Artist SWACQ

As a music curator, I'm sent a lot of music. But every so often, I'm hit with something that completely stops me in my tracks. Dutch producer SWACQ's remix of 'Faded Away' by Sweater Beats & Icona Pop is well and truly Music to Save the World! (you can read about why here,) and has rightly been our featured track for the month of October.

With a catalogue that spans a huge range of styles and includes collaborations with the likes of Tiësto, Nicky Romero and Justin Mylo - not to mention the frequent spins on the iconic  Hardwell on Air collections - SWACQ is clearly a force to be reckoned with in the world of electronic music…
