I Kissed a 2018 and I Liked It

by mykx

Question: Darf man den Versuch starten die Vergänglichkeit einzufangen? In einer Liste runterschreiben? Answer: Yeah, whatever. Warum also nicht mal ein Lebenszeichen hier. Die besten Alben des Jahres, as I see them.

Deutlich poppiger, als ich bei Einzeltracks unterwegs bin. Deuuuutlich poppiger. Dafür aber auch mit wenig bis kaum Hardtrance. Last Train to Hardtrancentral…

Das Ganze auch auf Spotify, damit die Künstler auch 0,0013 Cent für´s anhören kriegen. Coz Art Kills Music.
