We have these brief lives, and our only real choice is how we will fill them. Your attention is precious. Don’t squander it. Don’t throw it away. Don’t let companies and products steal it from you. Don’t let advertisers trick you into lusting after things you don’t need. Don’t let the media convince you to covet the lives of celebrities. Own your attention — it’s all you really have.

In This Moment // Jon Kennedy

Jon Kennedy has been in our speakers since high school. After first hearing his track Smith vs Smith, probably downloaded off Napster, we were hooked. Since his first releases on Tru Thoughts, he’s gone on to craft more albums, EPs, and grown his own label, Jon Kennedy Federation, to give exposure and support to the emerging artists he loves. After all these years, Jon Kennedy is still going strong, producing and DJing so check out his site and Soundcloud for up-to-date releases and mixes.

So without further adieu, here are Jon Kennedy’s top tracks of the moment:

#BlueMonday on a Sunday. Thank you J for getting me this record! It doesn’t contain the track Blue Monday, of course, but it was a nice surprise to see a Tiffany blue #vinyl. #neworder #factus8 #petersaville #1982

Picked up The Danque: A Compilation of West African Funk cd yesterday from Jacknife Records & Tapes. Heard it playing and instantly bought it. It’s amazing and contains a lot of rare funk tracks. I can imagine this in a mix with some Can. Chill. Highly recommended. Check out a track after the jump.

Back to still life. Testing out the corners of my house against some harsh afternoon lighting. Also, trying to finish up the new #HarukiMurakami so I can reread The Wind Up a Bird Chronicles again. (Major nerd alert.) #light #afternoon #reading #stilllife

Cashmere Cat // Be My Baby

OK fine, it’s an Ariana Grande song but this is Cashy Cat production all the way. Annie’ll probably kill me for this but get your first real listen to this pop masterpiece. Gotta love those cute sounds by Cashy. And now that Benny Blanco’s been getting the Cat more pop work you can bet that we’ll be hearing more of his great production on tracks. Let’s just hope he doesn’t forget about a full-length follow up to Mirror Maru and Wedding Bells. While you listen try to figure out how she’s actually sitting on that stool. It’s like an M.C. Escher pitcture.
