YOLO List: Week 69

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  

Hedi Slimane

In honor of this being #69 and me being horribly immature, this week’s list consists of some prime get-down-and-dirty beats. Sexy house tracks and hard hitting electro bangers. I’m stoked that the C+A+D HQ has caught the disco bug, because I’ve never been able to give the genre a rest. There’s a timeless catchiness about its vibes that’s spawned so many new types of music, stemmed from the disco fever phase. Download the zip file, toss ‘em in a playlist, light up the candles and let your love making reach a whole ‘nother level. It’s on me!

YOLO List: Week 68

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Happy Sunday friends and fam! I bundled up ten solid tracks this week that I’m pretty excited about. The Black Keys track is a kickin single off their upcoming album, NEW OIZO, Florence and the Machine album came out of nowhere…but I got it! And it’s just as epic as you’d expect. Shows coming up that I want to go to: Boys Noize at Music Box, Girls @ Galaxy Theatre, Kooks in San Fran!! Will you be at any of these? Know anywhere I should be? Anyone I should see? Let me know on our Facebook page!

Couple words of advice I was thinking about the other day: no matter how rich or poor, happy or sad, successful or defeated you may be through life, there will ALWAYS be something to complain about. Something that’s not right, that you wish was. If it’s under your control, fix it! If it’s not, learn from it! Life is too dear to be caught up in everyday bullshit. Think big picture: Solve problems. Move forward. Stay positive. Enjoy #68!

YOLO List: Week 67

Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs @ HARD

Alright so it’s post Haunted Mansion weekend, and I can’t seem to let myself sleep. I just can’t believe this weekend happened, and to the level that it did. SO many surprises, and everyone brought their freshest sets. It’s gonna be so fun writing the review. I got a lot of ridiculous videos for us. Fake Blood, TEED, Skrillex, Rusko, Zeds Dead, Fatboy Slim, 2 Many DJS…unreal that we were there for all that. No videos of Soulwax. I took a vow to never film them after tonight. I don’t want people to think they can just go to Escape From Wonderland or Skream + Benga, and just see what’s up with Soulwax through YouTube vids. Fuck that. GO SEE THEM LIVE! Meanwhile, scope our YouTube channel for the others.

That being said, met a lot of f*ckin awesome people this weekend. Lots of good vibes all around. It’s crazy what saying something nice to someone will do to them mentally. There’s nothing like the assurance in your mind when someone compliments you and stands by you. So I challenge you: anyone can talk shit. say something nice to a random person this week. You could change their life that easy! That’s all for now. Enjoy the list friends. If you saw me in my Thomas the Tank Engine costume toot tootin’ around, that was for you.

YOLO List: Week 66(6)

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Ok ok ok…..I’m going to try and contain my excitement for the end of this week and save it for our HARD preview coming up. Despite Halloween being on a Monday, the week leading up to it is stuffed with fun things to do! HARD, Escape from Wonderland, Strange Boys on Wednesday, Nero @ Music Box, Deadmau5/Avicii/Feed Me in San Diego, Thee Oh Sees/Soft Pack on Sunday in LA. I mean, it’s interesting to see that concert going and party starting reach this level of competitiveness but HEY! I’m a man of options. The more to choose from the better. Halloween is awesome. Enjoy #66(6)

YOLO List: Week 65

by Skinny Genes Categories: skinny genes, YOLO list |  


Happy Monday people! Especially happy to share this week. Had a nice, steady flow of music. Both old and new. Dived a bit deeper in my library to make this list a solid 10-tuner, as I like to call ‘em. I want to leave you with something I was thinking about a lot this week: You can never be as happy as the people who laugh at themselves. Pretty much, just don’t be too hard on yourself. Learn to love who you are on your pursuit to be who you want to be. Turning negatives to positives is a powerful way to live. If you don’t have faith in yourself than how can anyone else? I have faith in you! Enjoy the list:
