New Music Brings A New Dimension

There are few things in life that bring me as much joy as when someone introduces me to new music.  With so much new music being created daily, a little helpful nudge is always appreciated.  A buddy of mine recently asked me to take a look at a DJ by the name of Sharkoffs.  One google search and a few clicks later, I’m was asking myself how I went so long without knowing about this cat.  As I strolled through the available music selection, I realized that I was faced with the opportunity to go on a journey, a journey that I greeted happily.

I rely on my physical response to the music, as well as the imagery the music is responsible for, to help shape my overall opinion.   As I meandered on my musical voyage, I relaxed and let my mind wander once again.  My adventure came to a close with the song combo of “Japanese Steel” and “Trying To Be Cool” (Sharkoffs Remix).  These songs displayed a varied style and tempo from one another, but when listened to as a tandem they complemented each other very well.  “Japanese Steel” had me preparing to go to war in a world, on the cusp of apocalypse.  As if designed by coincidence, I saw an 80s hair band, rooftop, serenading the masses with the ironic and relaxed soundtrack of buildings being toppled by bombs, while the chaos ensued, in Sharkoffs’ remix of “Trying To Be Cool.”  Although your journey with this music will not be the same, I assure you that you will enjoy the exposure nonetheless.
