Faik (pronounced Fake) is a one half of Stay Positive - the creators of one of our favorite i-D Slumber Sessions of last year. Venturing off on solo mission, Matt Farthing makes bass music with a playful edge, with plenty of awesome pop remixes and r&b bootlegs sitting pretty in his musical artillery. While the first of his three new videogame-inspired tracks and visuals is now available as a free download via his website, the London producer steps into the mix for i-D with a blend of music to browse dank memes to. Happy awesome timewasting!

Music to shift your mood from staying in to staying up all night... 
Farley Jackmaster Funk, Love Can't Turn AroundBonus points for the original mix with its completely fucking insane 1:10 min long intro in which Darryl Pandy screams himself horse for absolutely no reason. Gets me fucking hyped.

Music for fiery arguments and emotional goodbyes...
Wait, aren't those two completely different things?! I've being doing this wrong the whole time! Hmmm if I had to pick a catch-all track... 
It'd lighten the mood I recks. Downside, that laugh will haunt me for the rest of my days.

Music to kiss and make up to...
Tiga, Sex O'Clock
"It's Sex O'Clock
You need the time
I got the time
It's Sex O'Clock"

Commence white man overbite and subtle eyebrow gyration.

Music to heal a broken heart...
American Football, Never Meant. Ahhh it's cheesey but it's worked for me.

Music to get high to...
Enablers, On Monk

Music to change your night from mediocre to magnificent...
Chrissy Murderbot, Work Yr Bodee

Music to take a long drive to...
Alice Ant, I Want You. Basically anything by Alice. So talented.

Music to walk down the aisle to...
Can I use the Chris Brown polka track again? Or this?

Music you'd like played at your funeral...
That exact youtube video. RIP in pepperoni, me.

Music to have sex to...
I really wish I could use the Chris Brown polka one again. But this is usually good to get me in the mood. Obvs I have to repeat it, like, two times cuz I'm really good at sex.

Music to celebrate your birthday to... 
Come on i-D are you even trying? That's an easy one.

Music guaranteed to give you serious swagger...
SCNTST, Basement Structure

Music to make even the wallflowers dance...
Marvin Gaye, Got To Give It Up

Music to play at the afterparty when it's 6am and the sun is beginning to rise...
Thomas Bangalter and DJ Falcon, So Much Love To Give. The lyrics are "I got so much raw chicken" btw

Music that could put even an insomniac to sleep...
Ellie Goulding, Love Me Like You Do. Boredom is more powerful than any sleeping pill.
