Stranger Things – The Perfect 80ies Playlist on Spotify

If you haven’t watched it yet, do it! Do it right now, don’t wait until cozy sweater weather or next Sunday. You don’t need any excuse to open Netflix and disappear for the next 8 hours. Make sure you have everything needed handy because I promise you won’t leave the house or make any unnecessary steps away from your screen until the last episode is over.

Thereafter you are gonna wish to be one of them. One of the kids to ride your bike and go on adventures with your friends. One out of hundred things I love about Strange Things: none of the characters is a jerk or the simple one-dimensional archetype. Everything starts with stereotypes – you think ‘Oh the cool and hip kids in school are terrifying the nerdy, poor outsiders’ or ‘Of course, the typical chief of a small province town somewhere in the US hating his unfulfilled job while dreaming of catching the big bad guys’. But NO. Episode by Episode every character is (Except some secondary characters who are there to either make you laugh or to push the story in the right direction) growing and turning and in the end you’ll love them all. Agreed, the outstanding performances play their part too.

I personally always get bored at some part of any Show. For me even many Episodes of House of Cards dragged on and I could have jumped over without missing anything too important for the story line. At least that’s the feeling I get. I only remember ‘Wayward Pines’ as similar to ST. So no surprise that the Duffer Brothers and creators of the show had also been involved in the writing progress of Wayward Pines. Ha, knew it.

Although I am not a child of the 80ies (no, I’ve never seen the Goonies and ET scared the shit out of me the first time I saw it) I got hooked by the spirit of this Show instantly. The feeling of being a child again, of you and your friends against the rest of the world and especially these grown ups who don’t understand one thing on earth. The first time falling in love, times without smartphones and the possibility to reach anyone at any time, monsters, friendship and rules of friendship that really counts, promises and mystery mixed with modern Sci Fi. Do I have to say more?

Oh yeah, one more thing…also the soundtrack is on point! Netflix just announced they will release an official soundtrack (something they only did for House of Cards and Orange is the New Black so far and my conclusion is this could be the key indicator to the success of a Show on Netflix since their policy is to not report any viewer numbers). Listening to Joy Division’s “Atmosphere,” The Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go,” or Toto’s “Africa” makes continuing with your daily life more tolerable once the last scene is streamed. And if you do miss the main theme already here is an extended version of it!

#Premiere: KYTES – I Got Something (The Revenge Remix) @Spotify

KYTES Chromemusic
Keeping up the momentum from last year, KYTES are still in the fast lane and not only loved by the indie-scene. With their strong danceable beats, catchy guitar riffs and electronic sound beds they also made it over to this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) and impressed the heads of marketing of Vodafone, who chose „On The Run” to be the titel song of the new Vodafone CallYa Campaign.

Back from the USA, KYTES were launching their third single „I GOT SOMETHING“ on 29th April 2016.With „I GOT SOMETHING“ KYTES are creating a positive feeling, which takes the listener away. The Song deals with the human existence and compares life to gambling: it doesn’t lie in one’s own hands where and how one is born and bred, it’s more like a russian roulette. But the passage „I got something you should try“ also stresses the point that it is necessary to look ahead in life and it´s important to take the leap and try something new.

After the official first remix of the single done by Robot Koch they are additionally delivering a strong electro remix of Scottish producer Graeme Clark aka The Revenge now.

Revenge chromemusic

The Revenge is known for his innovative, progressive style and composition and has already released on an abundance of illustrious labels as DFA, Pokerflat, Dirt Crew, Needwant and his former imprint the much admired Intruments Of Rapture. In 2015 he released his long-awaited debut album „Love That Will Not Die“ on his imprint Roar Groove“, 2016 he came out with a special two-part EP „Intimitate Connection“. The Revenge has a strong reputation for deep, dark, and twisted killer DJ Sets. Wether home as a firm favourite at Glasgow’s iconic Sub Club or away, be it Tresor (Berlin), Space (Ibiza), Lola Club (Shangai) or Panther Room (NYC).

Enjoy his nice tripped-out-slo-mo-house version of the single „I GOT SOMETHING“ on Spotify and make sure to grab a copy on Itunes.
