KOTA – Masters Of The Sun

We received an anonymous email this morning with the following text and a link to this stunning video:

Living for a century without a frontier, the time for creation has begun. We will not seek power, only release it. It must live free now. Our message is yours to premiere.

The universe wants to play. We are masters of the sun.

On a week that was battered by hurricane Sandy, the tunes kept a-coming. The eleventh All Things Go Spotify mix highlights a handful of monster singles, including new ones from Calvin Harris, Yeasayer, and Chad Valley. Be sure to subscribe below and check out last week’s playlist here.

Playlist: Hurricane Sandy

Good morning. Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it’s fate that today is October 29th, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We’re fighting for our right to live, to exist and should we win the day, Hurricane Sandy will no longer be known as an American Hurricane, but as the Hurricane when the world declared in one voice, ‘We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on, we’re going to survive.’
