Joakim - On The Beach
First single of Joakim's upcoming new album 'Tropics Of Love'.
"This is the cover of one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists, On The Beach by Neil Young. When i first heard that song, i felt like i could have or should have written it. The lyrics are so dark and beautiful, they relate to the slightly autistic part that a lot of artists are hiding and the artist condition in general. But I'm no Neil Young when it comes to song-writing, so instead of trying to write something as good, I decided to make a cover, twist that blues tune and turn it into something completely different and (much to my surprise) even darker, to the point where most people don't even recognize the original song."
TOKiMONSTA - The World is Ours
"This song has been very close to me for years. I loved it too much to ever release it officially---all these mp3s online are poor quality rips off youtube or myspace. Here is the fully mixed and mastered version (thanks Daddy Kev) for you to play whenever you need to hear it."
FaltyDL - Hardcourage VIP
