You all know Garfield right? The indolent feline created by Jim Davis who happened to HATE Mondays and LOVE lasagna.
Oh right, ya’ll can’t immediately respond to my inquires can you?
Jesus, this needs to stop. I get you and the voices in my head confused all the time, always telling me to “kill whitey.”
I digress, back to the matter at hand. I bet you didn’t know which day of the week Garfield hated second most?
Bingo. You got it, January…I mean Tuesday.
See, it all comes full-circle eventually. You just have to give me some time.
We’ve taken it upon ourselves to craft a Tuesday evening playlist that is perfectly apt for that hellish car ride home in traffic. It’s a beautiful day in Chicago tonight. Enjoy it with the windows down and breeze blowing through your hair as you cruise down LSD blasting these tunes.

I dare you to listen to this next remix without thoroughly enjoying it. Go ahead, do it. Make my day.
Kaylan C. Brown, who goes by the name of Skrux, is one of few rising EDM stars that can get away without a record label or even a general manager for that fact. Producing uncanny, melodic ANYTHING (most notably dub and trap), Kaylan’s moniker is quickly gaining massive amounts of support from diehard fans and seasoned, respected DJs alike.
With several remix competition wins already under his belt, the sky is the limit for young KCB in twenty-fourteen. We look forward to seeing his name alongside some of the biggest names in the biz. Until then, we have another near-masterpiece by Skrux that is of the melodic trap variety. One interesting fact to note is that this next remix of “Escape” does NOT have a drop. Sure, it tells a story much like every song should in that it has a rise, climax and decay. However, there is no defined build and certainly no intense break.
We fucking love it.
