Weekend Playlist

If you're anything like me, you think a couple aspects of our society are sorely outdated.

As I write this, I know there must be some people who reading this thinking, "Oh god, I've heard this one before" but before you hastily pass me off as a stereotypically lazy teenager like that, hear me out: What if weekends were 3 days long? I'm not saying I'm any historical expert here, I'm just saying that somewhere along the line, maybe it got lost in translation as to how many days God really took to rest after he finished the whole thing...

Like, 1 out of 6? Anyone smart enough to know that they shouldn't choke on dice could pick a better ratio than that. My thought is that the big guy upstairs made it all in a few days and then clocked himself in through Sunday. Think about it, he doesn't have a thing you know he gets to thinking he needs a little "me" time after CREATING THE ENTIRE F$#%ING UNIVERSE. Besides, what better way to get a legion of loyal followers than embellishing the details of the crazy stuff you did (taking a dude's rib? Just not necessary imho..) and then saying that you're only gonna take ONE day off before you go back at it. They'd think you were, well...God.

But I digress. This all stems from the fact that I'm taking this Friday off (suckaaaaazz) to head to Montreal in what's shaping up to be a monthly tradition. With my move in late May, some concert going on at the end of July, and of course, the return of school in late August, I'm keeping up my end of the bargain in this whole long distance deal. Let's just hope my dear Montréal is #staying faithful to me.

In the meantime, here are the songs I'm gonna be playing over the weekend. If you wanna do as much crazy shit as I'm gonna be doing this weekend, here are the tunes to do it to.

1) New track from Adventure Club. Already talked about this one, so no need to go into detail.

 Flight Facilities - Crave You (Adventure Club Dubstep Remix) by Adventure Club Dubstep

2&3) DJ Legit & Bondo Music's Deep Feel Dubstep remixes of Rolling in the Deep. Even though I'm quite a fan of MTL's DJ Legit's remix, I can't stand but get addicted to the dubbier versions. Voilá

 Rolling In the Deep (DJ c.LEgiT Remix) - Adele by djclegit

 Adele - Rolling In The Deep (Deep Feel Dubstep Remix) by Bondo Music

4) Captain Cuts - Colours remix. Last year around this time, I was obsessed with the original version of this song. A year later, @my buddy introduced this remix to me that blends the best elements of party-house and dubstep remixes. Bazinga.

 Grouplove - Colours (Captain Cuts Remix) by Captain Cuts

5) ..aaand of course for when the times get a little more mellow and introspective as they tend to do, there's always Cults. These guys just released their second self-titled album in as many years. While some may see this as a testament to the similarity between all of their music, I see it as more of a tribute to their authenticity. These guys are just a little too nerdy to be cute, which I guess in today's world only makes you cuter. Oh well.

If all else fails, Gregg Gillis (aka Girl Talk) Recently threw together a 154-track "Barbeque Playlist" optimized for summer jammin'. It's as diverse as it is comprehensive. Give it a listen.
