Guess who’s back…..! I’m sorry for the recent delay in postings, but I am back from my vacation in Turkey and finally ready to give you all some new music! I had an amazing trip and was able to experience different types of nightlife this year. From the beautiful Bosphorus views and European influenced house music of Anjelique and Reina nightclubs all the way to the hipster bar scene in Taksim’s Tünel, I was able to not only hear an extreme variation in different music genres, but also hang out with an eclectic group of individuals in both environments! I don’t want to give you TOO much new music, as a new DJ D’Lish mix is in the works. (hint – East meets West part dos) 🙂 Start with these for now. Hope you enjoy!

“The only way to truly Love is to let go of what you are afraid to lose and Trust that what’s meant to be will stay.”
I do have to admit, that life is a little scary sometimes. Actually, it’s REALLY scary. We have this idea of how our lives are meant to be…who should be in them, how we work, where we play… but realistically, we really have no idea. Things can be taken from us as fast as surprises can be thrown into the mix. How are we supposed to stay grounded & guided? We fight for things & people we believe in, we try each & every day to learn something new, & we eventually figure out to think with our heads & our hearts together. Sadly, life doesn’t come with a rulebook or remote control. We can’t go to Chapter 8 to read about “How to fix a broken heart” & we can’t press rewind to turn back time & fix our mistakes. But we have NOW..the present, to say the things we never said, to speak up for how we feel, to take control…so that we will hopefully live a life with minimal regrets & burned bridges. Going into the future, what we don’t know is scary, but we do know how our lives are now & no matter what, we can save ourselves & whatever else we would regret losing in the future.
“So what do you want and what are you thinking?/Isn’t it about time you stuck up for me?/But what you can’t see is we’re under siege/And I only fight because I believe/Not gonna share you no/I’d fight for you”
“I say release me /’Cause I’m not able to/Convince myself /That I’m better off without you”
“Wish I could spin my world into reverse just to have you back again, there’s no gettin’ over, there’s just no gettin’ over you”
“Will you remember me, like I remember you”
“I’m gonna ask you to look away/I love my hands, but it hurts to pray/Life I have isn’t what I’ve seen/The sky is not blue and the field’s not green/Wait for me”
“You know I care what’s deep inside/Any hurt you choose to hide/But you should know how I feel/You should know that I like you/I want to be openhearted/Why can’t you see/You gotta be open or we’ll never get started”
