DA’s Sunday Morning Medicine: Classic Rock Edition
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.
Inspired by Flight Facilities’ decade mixes, this week’s Sunday Morning Meds is dedicated to classic rock reworks which commemorate generations past. It’s important to take a look back at musical evolution and pay tribute to the bands who revolutionized music into what we hear today. You’ll find Rolling Stones, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles, The Steve Miller Band and Aerosmith remixes below, each one using modern technology to revamp the classic tune without compromising the original sound.
If you missed any of last week’s more chilled out selections, check out Disclosure’s new single “You & Me,” the Hot Natured take of Phoenix’ “Entertainment,” the Adana remix of Larse’s “Hot,” Goldroom’s The Knock’s remix of “Modern Hearts,” Sepalcure’s “Make You,” Yousef’s “Think Twice” Catz N’ Dogz edit, Justin Jay’s “Static” EP, and Maceo Plex’s “Galactic Cinema.”
New York duo Streetlab, known for their array of classic rock reworks, add a subtle bassline and groove to The Rolling Stone’s timeless track.
Standing as one of the most influential songs of our time, “Dreams” takes on new life as Gigamesh spins a funk into Stevie Nick’s comforting vocal.
Croatian groove-master Pied Piper slows “Hotel California” to a chilled tempo while progressing through soft drum lines and eerie vocal isolations.
Pretty Lights shows his affinity for the classics by adding his signature glitch to “Fly Like an Eagle” fusing a modern riff and crafty vocals over the original.
Griz adds a melodic dubstep vibe to Aerosmith’s “Dream On” leaving the universal guitar mantra at bay while dropping a pattern of fluttering bass.
