Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections — old and new — in an attempt to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
1. Ryan Hemsworth enlists Lucas on “Angel,” cropped from their pair’s upcoming EP Taking Flight. Placid melodies hum over a light thump, accented by hi-hats and slow, gushing drum hits. Pronounced strings tie the tune together for an ultra-mellow weekend selection.
2. OWSLA’s under-recognized utility producers, Vindata, take Hoodboi’s “By Your Side” to their own space with a bright, melodic, remix that is equal parts fresh and addicting as it pushes futuristic, synth-driven hip-hop with a hint of jersey-club influence.
3. Multi-instrumental talents, Daktyl, rework George Maple and Grande Marshall with their forward-thinking sound by offering a groovy electronic arrangement on “Where Do You End and I Begin.”
4. BOSCO’s “Seventh,” originally offered via Brooklyn’s Fool’s Gold Records, gets an experimentally sensual remix from enigmatic producer OBESØN.
5. Canada’s Majical Cloudz offers “Downtown,” a somber, synth-driven indie pop love song that represents a strangely magnetizing side of electronic production – far removed from anything resembling “EDM.” Perfect for the slower Sunday morning mood, wake up next to someone who loves you and turn this on.
