MAKES ME THINK OF YOU.
Most of us have had that experience of hearing some sort of music for the first time and getting an immediate, surging cosmic feeling from it.
It’s a heavy wave that washes over you out of nowhere. Just a few minutes earlier you didn’t feel like this, but now something from these new melodies has tapped into your senses, while a burst of serotonin shoots straight to your heart.
When it’s over you can’t wait to hear it again. During the second listen the emotions are even more intense. It makes you think of something, or someone…
The song “Makes Me Think Of You” by Sellorekt/LA Dreams had the same effect while Uncle T was innocently polishing the tires on his ’84 Kawasaki KX 125 last weekend.
Tracks like these are few and far between. When one does suddenly rise from the depths, it strikes hard. Listen for yourself.
This one in particular reminds me of carefree summers of the past with no jobs and no responsibilities. Arcades, skateboarding, building forts, jumping off the floating dock, riding bikes through the cemetery, climbing trees, pool hopping, Nerf gun wars, chasing girls…
Hopefully the only worries in your life back then were wondering when the ice cream truck was coming and how many neighborhood kids you could rile up to play manhunt that night.
Special thanks to our old friends over at Valerie for the hot tip on this Sellorekt/LA Dreams song. It’s pulled from their latest guest mix which you should absolutely sink into over at The Valerie Collective. Easily the best mix I’ve heard in a long time!
