Close to a hundred online sites based in Singapore, most of them containing socio-political content, are currently “blacking out” their sites in protest against the government’s new rule.
They are protesting against the Government’s move to impose a S$50,000 license on online news sites that cover local news.
While they darken their sites or completely replaced them with a solid black background, the people behind these sites will probably have nothing to do for the first time in their sites’ virtual life. So how about some “dark” playlists to past the time ay?
- Pink Floyd - The Dark Side of the Moon
- Polica - Dark Star
- Death Cab for Cutie - I’ll Follow You Into The Dark
- Company of Thieves - Even in the Dark
- Hot Chip - Dark & Stormy
- Gale Storm - Dark Moon
This week’s groove is all about unwinding and what’s not to love about this new track from electro chill Bonobo featuring amazing soulful vocals by

Since the start of my first official job, life has changed more than I had expected it to be.
I was thrown into the depths of the ocean and left to survive by myself. In fact, I still feel that way now.
It’s hard to be where I am - at least to me it is. Hours are long, work has been mentally strenuous, and it always seems like a race with no end. At the same time, I continuously find myself in unfamiliar territories. It’s neither a good thing nor bad - although the perks of meeting the rich and famous do help with the motivation.
And as you may know, I used to churn out several entries about music. Now, it’s everything but that. And while I remain grateful for the priceless amount of experience I’ve been getting, I fear that this new road and commitment will divert me away from my passion for writing about it.
I struggle to keep up with the daily juicey stories. I struggle too, to stay in the loop with music matters as well. And most of the time, it seems like I’m losing touch of the latter.
Now listening: Bonobo ft. Erykah Badu - Heaven for the Sinner
Steven Tyler will always be the adored poster boy of rock band Aerosmith, but it was guitarist Joe Perry who blew Singapore away on Saturday night when he played so hard his guitar was on fire. Literally. The other half … Continue reading →
