Let’s Not Be Productive

Sometimes, you can’t be productive. That is, the things you put effort into don’t produce results. That’s all that productivity boils down to, right?

Remember The Process

When a project reaches a stage of difficulty, as it inevitably will, no matter how swimmingly it’s been going so far, it’s important to remember the process.

Permission Granted

The thing is, no one will ever give you permission to be okay in your own skin.

Existential Crisis

Since I’m in the middle of trying to figure out how I can incorporate my playlist into my increasingly-elaborate project, I figured I’d simply drop some tracks that I can’t stop listening to at the moment.

Enter Shikari — THE GREAT UNKNOWN Album Review

My love for Enter Shikari by no means unconditional, and I certainly don’t love everything they release unquestioningly. It took me a VERY long time to appreciate The Spark, and there isn’t a single album of theirs where I like every single song.

New Sky – RÜFÜS DU SOL

And so we’re leaving our little moon for a New Sky. As Himalia crumbles and falls apart around us, we depart for our new home.

Nightwalk – Spencer Brown

And so I get up, leave my room, head out onto the rooftops. I’ve done this a lot lately. A Nightwalk to calm my troubled soul.

Be Someone – CamelPhat & Jake Bugg

Despite the bright daylight, the city feels dark. It’s cold, and imposing, and unnatural, and it doesn’t want me here.

The Escapist’s Handbook, Vol. I – The Expanse 📽

Let’s cut straight to the point right from the get-go: The Expanse is brilliant.

Into Clouds – Luttrell

It washes over me, seeping into every fibre of my being, immersing each and every atom to the point where I don’t know where I stop and it begins…

Lfost – Calcou

‘Drifting, floating, falling, but never moving… Time ripples around me but I can’t reach it, and I’m held here in a stasis that lasts an eternity and spans an entire universe…

Underwater – RÜFÜS DU SOL

‘Floating, weightless, the pressure holding me as though it were a vice. I hung in stasis for what can only have been eternity, somewhere between sleep and death…’

Sirens – Icarus

‘I’d been so long in this wilderness that I thought I’d never see another soul again. One by one our tiny band had fallen apart, lost along the way or through a loss of heart, until only I remained…’

Bloom – IHF

‘We woke to the sun breaking on our faces. Squinting from the brightness, we looked around to find that the desolation we’d gone to sleep amidst had vanished.’

Wilderness Girl – Yotto

The forest was dark, mysterious, but not foreboding. Ethereal lights strung across the branches above our heads danced in an effortless breeze, their glow bouncing primordial shapes across ancient oak…

Toro Y Moi – Still Sound

Need more house cleaning music? Well I hope you have on comfortable shoes! Toro Y Moi’s Still Sound is exactly what you’re looking for. The groovy bass line and guitar riffs are sure to bring out your inner dance machine

Good Voodoo – Kiki (VisionQuest Remix)

I first heard this song yesterday as I was running through Hasenheide, a huge park by my house. I had already been running (ok, you got me, jogging) for a solid 15 minutes and therefore reaching my tap out point. And then, like a gift from the gods, this magical song started pumping into my ears like a seductive siren, causing me to tap into a dormant energy source I wasn’t even aware existed

Momentum – Kill Frenzy, Justin Jay

Last night, after a few glasses of wine, my roommate and I were laughing about our individual dancing styles when we are at a club and completely immersed in the music. My roommate tends to hang out in front of the DJ. She’s usually swinging her arms, but in a very controlled way as if she’s marching (that or fending off a bevy of zombies.) Oh and she’s usually smiling really big at other people, wanting to make sure that those around her are having just as much fun as she is.

A Jealous Heart Never Rests – The Black Madonna

As a woman who loves techno, I feel it is my personal duty to draw attention to all the incredible techno DJs out there who also happen to be ladies. That’s why occasionally I’ll use this playlist as my platform (hey, everyone needs a soapbox, ok?)

Did You Ever – Daniela La Luz

On Saturday night I arrived to Griessmühle; formerly a pasta factory, and presently one of my favorite clubs in Berlin. Not only is it just a few U-bahn stops from my house, but it’s a bit off the beaten path (and a bit gritty), which means it doesn’t attract a lot of tourists.

What House Is – Lady Blacktronika

Since today is International Women’s Day I thought it would be most appropriate to feature one of my favorite DJs, Lady Blacktronika. She was one of the first friends I made when I arrived to Berlin and also the first person to ever tell me not to refer to “Techno” as “Electro.” When I asked her why, she said, “just don’t.” Duly noted Lady Black.

Diving With Whales – Nora En Pure, Daniel Portman

A couple of days my roommate mentioned that she was going to deep clean the apartment. I said, “Well, wait. Friday we are having a house party and it’s just going to get filthy again.”

Voyeur – The M Machine

Because this song is a bit slower than the other tracks on the playlist, it’s great for getting in the zone (or pretending your life is in slow motion.) It’s a dreamy trip to the moon without ever having to leave the comfort of your room. 

It’s Ok (feat. Patricia Edwards) – Ernesto Blaque

The lyrics to It’s Ok were written by Patricia Edwards way before I ever made the song. I liked it when I first heard the lyrics and then decided to write music to it. Since Patricia is based in New York and I am based In Johannesburg, I wanted the song to have both an American as well as a South African feel to it. I also wanted the song to fit in any club around the world. Hope you enjoy!

A New Day (feat. Fritz Kalkbrenner) – Chopstick and Johnjon

It’s the freakin’ weekend and I couldn’t be more excited. Before I crack open a bottle of beer and toast to the ending of a particularly stressful week, I still have a few tasks I need to finish up..like backing up all my data to my external hard drive (a habit I need to just go ahead and adopt weekly). 

Rock Solid (Mickey Remix) – Rambla Boys

The other night I had the arduous task of putting together an IKEA bed that I had bought secondhand. The task was arduous because 1. There were no instructions, 2. I had never put together a bed before.

House Work – Jax Jones

“I call it house work, ’cause it’s like work. But Ima throw shade if I don’t get paid for this house work.” Man, I can relate. I don’t just dance; I dance like it’s my motha fuckin’ job. 

Sunny – Umami

If my roommate or I have a bad day, we have a series of songs that we put on full blast to cheer one another up; Drunk in Love by Beyonce, Love Invaders by Fatima Yamaha, and this one. We always put these songs on to celebrate the good days too 🙂

Saku – Fort Romeau

When I am a grandma one day I won’t tell my kids that I walked miles in the snow to get to school (I grew up in the desert so that would be a flat out lie). I will, however, tell them about the time I walked to Berghain alone to see one of my favorite DJs (Fort Romeau) at 3 in the morning, . I’ll then tell them that he didn’t go on until 9a which meant I had to entertain my drunk sleepy self for another 6 hours. 

Attention – David Jach

I now know why Berliners spend every single second of the warm weather outdoors. When you only have one month of real summer, you tend not to take it for granted. While I’m seriously looking forward to the sun setting at 9pm, rooftop bars, dining al fresco, boozy picnics with friends, and open air festivals, I’m also trying to appreciate the gray winter days.

Come On Now (Set It Off) – Tube & Berger, Juliet Sikora

When I hear the words “set it off” I immediately think of one of two things; the 90s crime action film featuring the Queen (Latifah) herself (if you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and get on that..right now) or else I think of the 1984 song by Strafe, “y’all wan’t this party started quickly, right?”

Ringo – Joris Voorn

Like many of the songs on this playlist, this one reminds me of my first few months in Berlin. It’s less dancier than the others, which makes it perfect for getting lost in thought while simultaneously ridding your boudoir of old U-Bahn tickets, bottle caps, and Sterni bottles. 

The Giver – Duke Dumont

Who is that special someone Duke? What are you giving? Do you have a single brother? *Asking for a friend. Regardless of who the song is about, we can all agree that they must be pretty damn special to inspire such a banging track.

No Eyes – Claptone feat. Jaw

When I first moved to Berlin, I didn’t know anyone, nor did I speak one bit of Deutsch. Those first few weeks were spent wandering around the city solo, getting lost (a lot), and listening to songs such as this one. Flash forward two years later — though I’m extremely proud of the awesome life I created, I never want to forget how magical the world felt those first few anonymous weeks.

Summertime Sadness – Asadinho Main Vocal Mix by Lana Del Rey

Throw your hair up real big, beauty queen style, open those damn windows, and then turn this song up as loud as you can. What’s wrong with channeling your inner diva prior to getting down and dirty? 

My Head is A Jungle – Wankelmut and Emma Louise

Wankelmut means fickleness in German which is quite fitting considering I have musical ADD. Yes, that’s me, the “voracious song skipper.” This song however, keeps my head bobbing until the very end. If your house is a jun-gle, jun-gle, this song should help fix that.
