With summer suddenly upon us, it's easy to forget that this is the season to breathe, refresh and embrace the bodyrockingest of beats!
Summer is about partying, you desk jockey mofos! Yeah, you gotta collect that cheddar by gettin swole on them deals/trades/sales/felonies, but you also need to let it all out. On Wall Street, this can be a tough emotional chasm to bridge. How do you keep it 100 at the office while also enjoying the best that summer nightlife has to offer?
Well, we're just gonna say "You're welcome."
Wall Street's latest bro bible, Ray Dalio's "Principles" has recently been released in a new, cartoon movie form. We won't review the whole thing here, but suffice it to say that it is a beautifully produced work of animation that, thanks to Ray's narration, is the closest we will ever come to sharing a hefty bag of 'Shrooms with Dalio himself before wandering the Woods of Westport as he drones on about success. It's a masterpiece of psychedelic art masquerading as a self-help video.
But Ray's not the only bold-faced name in finance dropping the fruits of his artistic side hustle on us this month. It turns out that the most powerful EDM DJ on earth has released his first single on iTunes. DJ D-Sol's "Don't Stop" is available for purchase and after a dozen listens, we can say with certainty that Goldman Sachs CEO-in-waiting David Solomon has artistically revealed what Fleetwood Mac would have sounded like if their mountains of cocaine had been switched out with mountains of powdered amphetamines before 1974.
What we have here are two things that make almost no sense existing on their own. Are they dope? Verily. Are they necessary? Not even notionally.
But what if some genius put them together? What if an angel came down from the heavens and merged the wisdom of the world's greatest hedge fund manager with the sick ass beatz of the man about to become the world's most darkly powerful banker?
The kids call it a "mashup" but we just call it "Don't Stop Remix 2.0 - DJ D-Sol feat. Ray Dalio"
So take whatever pill is on your desk, grab an intern to dance with/educate and hit play!
