It’s always a good day when you unearth a previously unknown (at least to my ears) Todd Terje remix.
Esta teams up with Hudson East for a smooth piece of R&B. This is a track that plays to the strengths of the collaborators – Esta’s knack for crafting beats that get people off their feet and Hudson East’s smooth voice and catchy lyrics. The main takeaway is that these two are still trying to get people to call them in a day and age where no one does.
Parisian outfit Fever 105 set out to portray the journey of a young boy wandering around Harlem with this track. Not sure if that’s the first image that pops into my head when I listen but they’ve certainly created a compelling track with lovely horn samples, sharp piano chords and an epic guitar solo.
NZ duo SACHI are back on remixing duty, taking aim at LA indie act, Courtship. The original’s poppy and spacey feels make the perfect ingredients for the upbeat Electronic stylings of the Auckland teenagers. A remix with the rare blend of bounce and verve, ideal for my Monday afternoon blues.
Music to ease my post-Amsterdam Dance Event reintegration into society. Apply in conjunction with fried foods, coconut water and Cannibis sativa.
These classic Disco styling come to you courtesy of the New Zealand/German duo, Snacks. The Berlin based outfit keeps the grooves coming with basslines and handclaps for days.
Apparently SOULECTION wonder boy Chris McClenney has been dropping this track during his live sets for a while but now releases the remix for a free DL. The Maryland producer has channeled a Kaytranada-like bounce when reconstructing the KOLAJ original and I’m loving the playful vibe.
Excellent track from L ENFANT, a Dutch duo made up of two brothers, Oscar and Thomas Peters. It’s hard to pigeonhole their sound into a single genre but they create an intense atmosphere of electronic and analog vibes, with create interplay between the use of synths and guitar riffs. To me, it sounds like a perfect blend of the work of luminaries Caribou and Darkside.
