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.
While last week we brought you a special Hip-Hop and R&B edition of SMM, this week we’re back to our house game, providing an extra-upbeat selection of resplendent tunes from the likes of Max Cooper, Cassian, Duke Dumont, HNNY, and Mala.
If you missed any of last week’s lighter releases, make sure to check out Brown & Gammon’s cosmic original “Dark Matter,” Butch Clancy’s dubstep remix to Rihanna’s “Stay,” and Gorgon City’s Parklife Mix.
1. While “Devil’s Elbow” was an empowering journey in its own right, Max Cooper has upped the tempo and turned Nick Warren’s spiritual original into a transcendental house track. If you’re looking to be transported to a kinder, warmer dimension for nine minutes, hit play, sit back, and let the beat sink in.
2. You may know him from “The Giver” or “Need U (100%), or hell, you may even know this track, but regardless, Duke Dumont’s remix of HAIM’s “Falling” is akin to starting your day off with a fresh glass of sunshine.
3. In a similar vein to Disclosure, Australia’s RÜFÜS are revitalizing the house world through live performance. “Take Me” is the first single from their forthcoming album Atlas, and fellow Aussie Cassian has put a seductive upbeat spin on the track.
4. If you find your life lacking that classic, funky house vibe, look no further than HNNY’s “For the Very First Time.” It doesn’t get more groovy than this.
5. Finally to switch things up and disrupt the unbroken beat, Mala’s “Alicia” is the sexiest tune you’ll hear all day. Old school dubstep/UK garage at its finest.
