Minimix 15 – Freedom Dance

My MBA is done. I can’t believe I’ve reached this point wherein I’m going to have all the time after office to do whatever I want. The feeling’s so liberating yet at the same time overwhelming because I’ve been pretty much used to spending almost half of my life going to school and working on academic stuff.

Don’t get me wrong – I love this feeling (which actually inspired me to work on this mix). I treasure my time much more than money, and I’ve got waaaay too much stuff on my mind that I’ve been wanting to do. I feel there won’t be any “lag time” for me as I’ve been itching to tick off all these things in my mental checklist.

Anyway, here’s the fruit of my newfound freedom. Got the chance to work on it the moment I felt like waking up from my 5hr (!!!) nap. Here’s the tracklist:

  1. Come Back Baby: Flush
  2. Golden Wings: Bag Raiders
  3. Disclosure: Bang That
  4. Paul Johnson: Get Down
  5. Charles B & Adonis: Lack of Love

Lenno – Good Thing (EP)

I’ve been waiting for this release since I first heard one of his singles “Fever” (which, btw, I reviewed here last year). And I must say, this 15-minute long EP is worth putting on loop all day. Lenno has this knack of using classic nu-wave/discotheque beats, bass lines, and synths you’d normally hear from classic 80s and 90s tracks. For someone who’s only in his early 20s, he’s making songs that our parents can tolerate listening to.

All tracks are standouts, it’s so hard to choose just one. The whole vibe of his album is everything I’m looking for in an electropop/synthpop song. You’d find yourself including his songs in your springtime/summertime beachparty playlists.

For more of Lenno, check out his Soundcloud, like his Facebook page, and follow him on Songkick to get updates on where he’ll be playing live next.
