Drama Free - deadmau5, Lights

Lately I've been having these bizarre pangs of existential confusion, and I have to tell you kids, it's pretty bloody weird. 

I'm 27 with a fairly decent job and enough freedom to focus on my creative goals, but there's this insidious little voice in my head that recently has been getting loud enough to hear over the other nonsensical bullshit that rattles around in this old noggin of mine…

If there's one thing I look for in a track above all else, it's a powerful sense of story. I don't just mean that the lyrics really capture an emotion - often the most vivid songs are the one that use no words. What I'm talking about is a track that builds a soundscape right before your very ears,…

Earlier this year, Andrew and I attempted an experiment. For a whole month, we swapped playlists, completely entrusting one to run the other's list in a way that stayed true to the central theme but also putted an added twist on the existing paradigm…

I get a lot of track submissions. Some are good; some are bad. Some are downright ridiculous. They span all different genres and styles, from artists with hundreds of thousands of streams to those with virtually none. It's always exciting listening to the latest track to land in my inbox (and I do genuinely listen to every one!), and I never know what to expect when I follow that Spotify link into the unknown…

Remember when I said this playlist was about providing a superhero soundtrack to your everyday routine? This week I'm laying it on thick with ODESZA's new-but-not-really release 'Loyal' - brace yourself as military snare rolls, mysterious arpeggios and a FILTHY brass section collide to weave a cinematic soundscape that just screams EPIC…

Taking some time away from my list, and reading the things that Andrew was writing for Save the World, has put it back into perspective for me what this is all about for me. I started out with the idea that this list would be about the everyday struggles that come from being a human, and providing a soundtrack to those struggles to help you overcome them….

And so here we are - we've come to the end of our little experiment in playlist swapping and you know what?  I've bloody loved it!  I hope you haven't been too freaked out by the slightly different flavor brought to the list.  Who knows - maybe at some point in the future Matt'll let me come back…

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!…
