Handlebars - Flobots

Aside from the villains of the MCU and DC Comics – have you ever stopped to wonder what the world needs saving from?  It’s easy to focus on the alien overlord and understand his need for galactic domination – it’s big and tangible and thankfully we have someone in a cape who will defend us – but in the real world – things are a little less clear…

Life is a crazy ass thing - one minute you're strolling along, minding the world's business, acting out the role of superhero and wondering - what if this is all there is?  Suddenly you're pulled out of your body and replaced by something else - something weird - something foreign - something possibly Scottish!…

Kerala - Bonobo

Following in the same vein as last week's entry, Bonobo's 'Kerala' is a super-chill fest that's gotten me through some pretty hard work over the weekend.

It always seems to happen that whenever Britain has some good weather, I'm cooped up inside working on an important deadline. It's worth it though; playing the long game always pays off in the end, so if missing out on a bit of a tan this weekend is the price for some hard earned success, I can handle that!..

Writing up this week's entry has been such a bizarre experience. Normally I'm not one to be stuck for something to say, but writing about my own track is like staring into the looking glass the wrong way. Now I know that that's an Alice in Wonderland reference, but I'm not really sure I understand it, so interpret it whichever way you want.

I Could Be The One - Noonie Bao Acoustic Mix - Avicii, Nicky Romero

The news of Avicii's death this week shook me pretty hard. To lose such a talented person is always tragic (and it comes off the back of the death of Stephen Hawking last month, another huge hero of mine), but when that person is hardly a year older than you it reminds you that death really doesn't care how old or how successful you are. It reminds you that you really have to live life properly, and not waste it on pointless bollocks…

I've been a very busy little bee recently. I can't say what I've been working on just yet, but believe me, it's exciting. 

When you're deep in the headspace forest, you tend to come across a lot of strange and interesting psychological creatures, and not all of them are friendly. If you've ever completely thrown yourself into a creative project, you'll know what I mean...

Mein War (feat. Julia) - Dakon First

Every once in a while, we get a track sent to us that catches us quite off-guard. Sure, we've spent the past few months talking about the victories we overcome in our daily lives (and the music we listen to as the soundtrack to those victories), but it's easy to forget that there are people out there going through a much more dangerous form of struggle. The kind that can get you killed...

Little Lies - Fleetwood Mac

If you told me I could only ever listen to one band for the rest of my life, well first of all I'd say you were a bit of a dick for forcing such an unnecessary restriction on me. But if you insisted, because that's just the way you are, I'd answer with Fleetwood Mac. When it comes to taking you on a journey, there's just no one quite like the Mac.

Opps (with Yugen Blakrok) - Vince Staples

Like Music to Dali & Jay-Z Lovers post last week, this week's Save the World! entry was inspired by the recent release of Marvel's Black Panther. It's rare that to have a film score deviate from traditional cinematic motifs and pull it off so well, but I really feel my enjoyment of the film was in no small part due to Kendrick's impeccable song curation. As curators ourselves, we know the impact that the right song can have on a particular moment, and it was humbling to see it done on a Hollywood scale...

HyperParadise (Flume Remix) - Hermitude

I'll be honest, I've had myself a pretty weird couple of weeks. Not to take this playlist to a place of doom and gloom, but I've not been feeling so Victorious! lately. In fact, I've been in a bit of a rut. 

But that's okay! Heroes aren't always winning. That'd make for some shit-boring cinema, and if box office success is anything to go by, we know that's certainly not the case. I won't reference any particular heroes here for fear of flaming up a DC/Marvel turf-war, except of course for Mr Incredible, who quite famously finds himself in the mother of all ruts. And everything turns out pretty great for him, so, y'know. Chin up...

Sometimes we're not super-human without that special someone who brings out our full potential. And sometimes, we lose that someone. In fact, one of the most grueling challenges a superhero can face is the loss of their sidekick. It can be for different reasons, but it's almost always an incredibly difficult thing to overcome.
