I've had enough of trying to Save the World! this week. I mean, I've been putting in some serious hours in this silly little thing we call life, and now I'm ready for some maximum chill time.
Beyond the Sun is the embodiment of chilled-out flow. It's the kind of track you can just put on repeat, close your eyes, and properly relax. I don't mean when you crash on the couch when you get home from work or let yourself have an extra hour in bed on a Sunday. Y'know, where you still haven't really switched off, and the baggage from the previous day or the anticipation of tomorrow lingers and looms.
This track is true chill material: the kind that transports you from day-to-day drudgery into twisting kaleidoscopic astroscapes (not sure if that's a word but I like it and might call my next album that, who knows); the kind of track that reminds you that there's more to life than spreadsheets and financial projections, that perhaps there's more out there in that big ol' universe than neighbourhood politics and who can grow the greenest grass (it's definitely not Graham from Number 29, and he's kidding himself and his sandals if he thinks otherwise...)
Do yourself a favour. Lie down, have a minute, and give this track a spin. See if you don't feel the weight of obligation lift, even for just a brief moment.

About the curator - Matt Jenko
Matt Jenko is a university postgraduate and music producer with an unhealthy obsession with Rick & Morty and all things Game of Thrones. When he’s not in the studio (a rare occurrence these days), he’s fueling his passion for music either on the net or out in the real world. He likes being out in the nature (in the least strenuous capacity though, let’s be real here) and chilling with his cat, and he’s also pretty proud of his mammoth collection of books that he’s never read.
