I listen to Spotify about 50% of my workday. Most of what I do is analyze numbers so I listen to various playlists that last year was organized based on month & all of my playlists are public. This past week I have been listening to my most played song and I’m excited about which ones have been played the most as those are what 2017’s theme was about: Independence, Hustle, and Discovery.
My top 5 from my most played songs in 2017:
Run The Jewels – Panther Like A Panther (Miracle Mix edit) (feat. Trina) | From The RTJ3 Album
Key lyrics: Give me a ten, and I’ll double, I’ll split your face like some aces
I got a fragrance I’m wearing called, “I will shit on you basics”
The money wants me to have it, I have a hunger for data
I’m crunching numbers and crack unbreakable safes while I’m at it
A majority of my time this year was spent learning as much as I could about running an online business while focused on building my credit and working a full-time job. I had an annual goal, a monthly goal, and a weekly goal. Lists on lists with a list! I didn’t listen to anyone that wasn’t going where I am headed. I took workshops, webinars, and talked to people who are where I want to be. There is money out there and I want it so I can put it back into the communities that I enjoy. And of course, nothing pumps me up more than saying LOUD AF: I’m the shit bitch.
Bling Bling – Junglepussy
key lyrics: And you best believe that I got the key
And I got the trees and I got the tweets
Ain’t no stopping these prophecies
Am I a thot for lovin ciroc?
Gucci or not I’m a cheat ’cause I got
All my hot girls with me and we
Dance around and bounce those titties
I banged this track at pretty much any after-hours party I went to & made so many dudes all uncomfortable. There was a stage at Evarland that didn’t have anyone playing for a couple of hours & played this & everyone was like, “This song is the shit!” Yes, this song is a reminder that I’m focused on my goals and to not take anyone seriously. That has helped me enjoy the companionship that I experienced and to not get caught up in having a relationship. I worked to NOT have a relationship because I focused on my goals. My favorite line is “I got the tweets” because there were a lot of times where I would set it off on twitter & users would try to test me. They can try to shut me down, but the fact is that I don’t care what anyone has to say: I’m going to do what I want & have a blast doing it & my beautiful friends are going to be out with me dancing around… bouncing our titties.
Can’t Hold Me Down – GRiZ (ft. Tash Neal of The London Souls) | Good Will Prevail
key lyrics: Don’t trust the darkness
Just be alive
Let it shine from the heart list
Let it shine through the night
This year was full of bad news. I had an amazing, talented friend pass away recently & had to focus on keeping her legacy alive. But all throughout 2017 there was a terrible feeling I had when watching the news. I have had various people say this is the end of the world & I’m such a positive person that I had to not trust that. I know things change & I know even when I want a major change, I will distroy everything to start completely all over again. I’ve had various people tell me that I shine – from my makeup’s highlighter to my personality to the fact I wear sheer clothing with rhinestones. Yeah, this song was my reminder to shine in this dark time.
SYD – GOT HER OWN
You try undress her, but she say no
You try to sex her, but she say no
You thought your jewelry, your fancy clothes would
Keep her from leaving and going home, well
Boy you thought wrong, you weren’t even close
She’s out of your league, I heard she’s a pro
Where she gets her stats, you don’t need to know
But they say she’s a freak on the low
And I heard she got her own
My parents raised me in beautiful homes, had nice cars, went on great vacations, gave me jewelry. I know those are things that impress people who are not used to them but I’m not impressed by stuff. I’ve even had relationships where my partner would stress how they could buy anything & I would let them know: I can buy anything. Plus this track is absolutely beautiful. I would rather be single and happy doing whatever I want with my own everything than have to ever answer to any. I do mean absolutely anyone. Nobody tells me what to do, how to think, where to go, how to act. I can’t stand being told anything. What is impressive? Kindness, intelligence & insane music collections.
Cardi B – Bodak Yellow
key lryics: I don’t bother with these hoes
Don’t let these hoes bother me
They see pictures, they say goals
Bitch, I’m who they tryna be
Who doesn’t love this song!? Since I am busy with events, meetings, planning and working CONSTANTLY I don’t have time worry about anything that is not going to help me get where I want to be. I definately feel terrible when any of my friends have issues with people but I always tell them not to let them bother them if they are person they don’t have to work with. Also I don’t stress if someone is being a jerk – I know that people have moods and issues so I just blow that off and things work out. I am aware that as an aunt, leader and influencer that people do watch what I do and I want them to be movitated to be their best self. I like knowing that my words, images and advice will make their life better. I even wish anyone who is in anyways jealous or mad at me their best life. I want everyone to be happy & have a great life – just stay out my business.
I hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do. What songs motivate you?
This weekend people will gather right outside of Hughes Springs, Texas for Atrium Obscurum’s annual 3 days, 2-night music and art festival at Armadillo Acres. This is the same venue used for Myschievia. The theme for this event is to honor the dead. Many of us have experienced death in 2016 in very personal ways so this is our way of celebrating them with this Norse mythology story.
Einherjar (Old Norse einherjar = ‘those who fight alone’ or ‘those who belong to an army’) is the term used in Northern mythology for the warriors slain in battle, who are brought to Valhalla by the Valkyries after their deaths. There they spend their days in battle, but in the evenings they are all alive again and drink the mead which flows from the udder of the goat Heiðrún and is offered to them by the Valkyries. They eat the meat from the constantly renewed boar Sæhrímnir. There is sufficient for everyone. – Nordic Names

Missing psytrance right now. I have no been connected to the internet for only 24 hours yet it feel like so much longer since I used to be connected all the time. Wonderful vacation to get to decompress from my typical life. I do need to keep up with things back at home so I am spending time at an internet cafe and found this.
Hope you enjoy your #MusicMonday
New to psytrance? It changed my life and I’ve been part of Atrium Obscrum since 2007. I found this awesome video which I’ve used to explain psytrance’s culutre.
I am heading back to the beach… You can check out these awesome psytrance albums to get you started:
su na – Hudson
Perfect for right now.
I pulled all these as I go on a road trip this weekend so these are all the best. I perhaps saved the best for last but only because I am nostalgic about my bass music.
Live At Brooklyn Museum for Basquiat “Unknown Notebooks” Opening 4/2/15
Golf Clap – Ad Infinitum Guest Mix – January 2015
Lonnie Liston Smith Mix & In Conversation
The 6ixth Session: Dieselboy
One of my favorite podcasts. I have looked forward to every single Thursday for over a year JUST for this podcast. It doesn’t matter what kind of day of I’m having Kid Fury and Crissle always crack me and straight up read folks up and down. I don’t have any other podcast I’m listening to that has the best introduction every single week of a new different song. I’m a fan of Zebra Katz and the DAY I heard “Iam Read” 3 years ago I would randomly have this song pop in my head when I was about to read a betch. Seriously, sometimes folks just need to get some knowledge. Any how, so when the remix played in the first podcast I was like, “Oh?!” Then completely devoured every single episode since.
All major Beyonce fan will love how they both go into deep details of how utterly blessed by all she does as well as talk about Blue Ivy. Then get passionately upset when the hosts discuss hot cultural topics as well as break down race issues. Favorite section? The readers’ letters at the end are hysterical. Sometimes I feel like the listers are just brand new trying to work around things but
Hope you enjoy their playlist. It’s straight up fire. Even if you NEVER get around to listening to the podcast itself – do yourself a favorite and play the intros picks for the past year.

Christian Prommers 60min Mix @ Wilde, Sonar Patrty
I would pay for a version of this a cleaning session. I do cleaning when deciding which mixes to post so I had this one turned to the LOUDEST (without pissing my neighbors off) volume. This mix is movement motivating and really, I could listen to this at a party. Christian Prommer is a really good reason to visit Europe. Check out his tour schedule: at his site.

Been on the (Google) alert for new downtempo and NCIFiRestArter’s Psy-Ambient Grove is a youtube channel that has gave me a great mix on Monday and today I have Bodo. Definitely follow this youtube channel for more downtempo. I haven’t been disappointed yet.
I went on a click spree and found this gem on Bodo’s sound cloud page. PERFECT WINTER WEATHER SOUNDS! I’m loving the natural sound-scapes in this one.

Getting through this rough week as I adjust to my new EVERYTHING! Love this mix and am happy to prep for my day tomorrow while listening to this.
