Alvin Allure – Stuck


Sometimes kids dream of love but get stuck in their ways…The people that love us can be a catalyst for growth as they push you to move closer to your goals, but at the same time they can also be a catalyst for stagnation. Often times in relationships, we can actually be our own worst enemies, and our old ways can keep us from moving forward even though we say we know better. Insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, and there’s nothing that can make a person crazier than being in love. We’ll keep trying until we break the habit…until we’re no longer stuck in our ways…and until we allow ourselves to change for the better.

So Close to Summer 008 – “Til Infinity”

soclosetosummer008-tv-size

Music is meant to be created, curated, and shared. It’s been a mission of mine to do just that through Sound of February and I’m always looking for new ways to expand how we share sounds and the feelings that accompany them.

Our 8th episode is called “Til Infinity”, which will take you through a journey of sounds ranging from old school hip hop, to new school sounds and will explore a number of sonic detours through the process. The YouTube version of this list will also feature our first guest DJ mix provided by Bay Area DJs The CME and Shea Butter. As always, Subscribe to the YouTube channel for more vibes and start the dialogue in the comments box below the main video (or let the tweets fly).

Chance The Rapper & Young Thug – Big B’s

Dedicated to Soundcloud.

“The drop comes after the rapper proclaimed that the streaming platform, which reportedly only had enough funding for 50 more days, was “here to stay.” Chance announced earlier in the day that he had a “very fruitful call” with SoundCloud creator Alexander Ljung.

SoundCloud tweeted several messages of assurance to its users on Friday, writing, “your music isn’t going anywhere. Neither are we.”” – The FADER
