Just a quick installment of songs from near & far, intended to help carry you away someplace sunny. Most of this week’s selections have been pickpocketed from my many DJ friends. Shout out to DJ Gozar, Maga Bo, Mr. Assin. Pic above was taken on the little island of Ubin, just north of Singapore. If you ever find yourself there, riding bikes on the trails through the jungle, look out for a beautiful Buddhist temple and ask someone there if you can feed the fish.
