"Phoenix" from the album Rise
Composed by MDK
I'd have to say this is one of my favorite MDK songs, Maybe it's because it has a cool orchestral-ish intro that always brings to mind the image of a desert. Maybe it's the hardcore electric guitar and dubstep that follows. Heck, it could even be the build-up! (It's probably all of the above and more.)
A lot of the time, I don't care for electronic or dubstep music, because it can be annoying or repetitive or just really uncreative. MDK is an exception for me. When I listen to his music while I'm driving, I turn it up loud and roll the windows down. To do otherwise almost feels like a crime.
He's got a lot of cool, finger-tapping beats. I wouldn't necessarily recommend all of his songs, due to the fact that some of them have random harsh swear words, such as the f-bomb. You get rest assured that anything I share on my blog will be safe, and if there would for some reason ever be any swear word in any song I feature, I'd let you know. Also, if you want to listen to his music on your own, feel free to ask me about which ones are clean and which aren't.
Changing gears a bit, I need to fill you guys in on something. Whenever I sit down to write one of these, I always think to myself, "Oh, I should pick that song! But there's that one too. I can't forget about that one either." Truth be told, I could probably do a Music Monday post every week and wouldn't run out of ideas. Ever.
So I want you to answer this question: what kind of music do you want to hear more of? Do you want more movie soundtracks? More video game music? More lyrical songs? I'd like to mention that I've always considered the point of these posts to be exposing you to music you may not listen to normally, or know of at all. Feel free to give any suggestions in the comments.
What'd you think of the song? Did it fill you with summer hype? You feel like a phoenix now, ready to take on the world? If not, listen to the music on repeat until you do.
