Best Running Song for July - Gemini - Blue
The R's picking a Dubstep track?!? What in the F'n F is going on here?!?
I hear you. I can barely believe it myself, but wow, this song is amazing. As the cool kids say, "Just listen to that drop!"
So the artist's name is Gemini. He's obviously not a superstar or anything - it's actually sort of hard to find much about him online. Here's his website. If you want to hear him perform live, you better head over to Europe. But this song, Blue, just rocks!
There's a bunch of Youtube vids, but none are actual vids per se, they're just the song with a different picture to stare at while you listen to it. But if you're into that kind of thing, here you go, and go, and go, and go.
And since we're in a bit of a electronica mood, here's another great song I've been running to lately. This one is called Midnight City from M83. It actually has a bit of an 80's feel to it at times...especially when they break out the sax at the end of the song!
And here's a live version of Midnight City. Nice.
Rock that Run!
