DA’s Sunday Morning Medicine
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.
Just as we’ve started many previous editions, this week’s SMM begins with some sensual Maya Jane Coles. Following Maya’s delectable deep house are originals from John Talabot, Chordashian and Crystal Castles, as well as chilled out trap remix of Purity Ring from Dark Grey.
If you missed any of DA‘s more mellow posts from the past week, make sure to check out Bondax’s BBC Radio 1 minimix, Flight Facilities’ Edit of “A Fifth of Beethoven,” and the Knocks’ remix of Tegan and Sara’s “Closer.” For five tracks to ease the cerebral strain of a well-spent weekend, click past the break.
1. Maya Jane Coles is something of an SMM favorite. It doesn’t get much better than her remix of Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union” in terms of spiritual Sunday morning music.
2. John Talabot’s 2010 original “Matilda’s Dream” is a minimal acid house masterpiece. Sit back and get lost in its subtle progression.
3. “Cold Night” by emerging duo Chordashian was “built to keep you warm.” Download the awesome progressive house original for free from SoundCloud.
4. Purity Ring are entrancing enough on their own, however DarkGrey has made “Grandloves” even deeper and dreamier by turning it into a chill dubstep/trap fusion. Download it for free.
5. Crystal Castles’ “Wrath” is an icy, enveloping original, and undoubtedly one of our favorites off of (III).
