  • ❝  through hard times, we spark minds to keep the flame on.  ❞
  • ❝  will they tell your story in the end?  ❞

As you settle in for the weekend, take a listen to this beautiful #TombRaider20 fan tribute! Dean Kopri has stringed together a series of tracks and remixes taking notes from official Tomb Raider themes. We’re listening to these on repeat!

Have a fan #TombRaider20 project you’d like to see featured? Let us know!

Last Friday, an absolutely ridiculous remix package was unleashed for Zeds Dead and Diplo’s massive tune, Blame, a hit single which blends electropop, future bass, and dubstep then tops it off with Elliphant’s spunky magnetic voice. The five track EP features edits by the likes of Gorgon City, Nebbra, Dirtyphonics, and Michael Sparks. It also features a colossal remix by rising LA project Champagne Drip, an electronic act I touted as a fast new favorite when debut EP Of Course I Still Loved You dropped last month. Prepare for an experience as effervescent beautiful as it is gut punching exhilarating as Champagne Drip douses Blame with a trap and melodic dubstep flurry of wavy trills and wobbly chops. You can download this remix and the rest of the Blame remixes from iTunes, here.

Free will is a myth. Religion is a joke. We are all pawns, controlled by something greater…

The ultimate Cassie dream...

After the MAMAs 2015, I can’t help but wonder how amazing it would be if DBSK pulled a 2ne1. Could you imagine?! 

Yunho and Changmin doing a song and then all of a sudden the lights go off and Rising Sun starts  and JYJ rise up from the stage and Homin just exchange proud smiles. The fans and artists alike go mental- camera panning over to SHINee, EXO and capturing their star struck reactions. 

Then after Rising Sun, Mirotic remix ver. would start and they would recreate their 2008 MAMAs performance but like even better! 

Like it wouldn’t mean that they got back together, it would be like a special reunion stage kind of thing… *sigh* 

Ignore me… just getting Cassie feels
