The Dirt

dirt143

I’m on my own for The Dirt this week, so I’ve taken full advantage and chosen probably the most random group of tunes possible that I’ve been playing in the headphones. I’d say there’s a solid influence of R&B, Jersey Club, and Hip Hop in there, plus some tracks from the AWESOME PC Music out of London which I’ve become obsessed with as of late. Of course, I had to add the new ones from Digitalism and Worthy in there as well to round it out. All in all, very proud of this one. Get weird with me. 143 = i love you.
