Baby Bash ft Akon - Baby, I'm Back

I was in the car with my friend one day, and I let him take control of the stereo (I want to know what are his choice of songs). Through all of the EDM and Folk songs, this one stood out to me. It's not a new song that I am hearing for the first time, but I admit that I forgot about this piece. This was the era where Akon was rising, and the old became relevant again. This was also the era of simple beats, allowing the listener to pay attention to the artist's words. I wonder how I could have let this song get away, still sounds fresh after beyond a decade - that's when you know the music is good.

Swimming With Dolphins - Sleep To Dream

When I was watching videos on Vevo long time ago, this video started to play after I was listening to another song. What first came to thought was, 'Oh, they're another Mission District.' But after listening to the song, I thought the band resembled more of an Owl City vibe... Turns out, Adam Young is associated with the band! Perhaps Young is secretly trying to dominate the music scene with all of these unknown artists, one song at a time. All in all, this song has a synthesizing rhythm that leaves you feeling, could there be more out of the song? Perhaps I should listen to more Dolphins.
