Editors’ Selections: Week of May 6th, 2013

Editors’ Selections is an opportunity for your favorite Dancing Astronaut contributors to talk about some of the music they’re listening to that we might not always get an opportunity to post about from week to week. Sometimes it’s out there, sometimes it’s obscure, but you’ll always get a peek into what we’re loving behind closed doors. 


Abba – Lay All Your Love On Me (Martin Brodin Disconet Cut & Paste Mix)

With the ABBA museum opening in Stockholm this past weekend, I’ve been infiltrated with singing advertisements and dazzling images of the disco era royalty in their prime. Moon boots, satin, and sequins have taken the city back to a time when the flashy Swedes ruled the scene, encouraging me to listen to this edit on repeat. I’m a lover of the classics which is why I love what nu disco is currently doing for dance music.


Patrick Reza – Vitals

Though Seven Lions may be best known for pioneering “lovestep,” Patrick Reza is keeping the love alive with his tune, “Vitals.” With a pedal-heavy piano intro that builds into a melodic trance and dub fusion, the track is perfect for those who like a little aural padding for their drops, a little story for their bass supper. To further spread the love, Reza released the tune as a free download, so grab one for you and your loved ones too.


Fatboy Slim – Praise You (Maribou State Remix)

Maribou State take Fatboy Slim’s breakbeat masterpiece and turn it into a dreamscape of soft tones and bustling percussion on their rendition of “Praise You.” The London-based duo subdue Norman Cook’s original, dousing the mix in a thick coating of syrupy bass and mellow vibes. Officially supported by the man himself, this toned down groover is set to be released on Skint Records this summer.
Sebastian Carter – Angels
Sebastian Carter may only boast one original track to his name, but my god, it’s beautiful. The 18-year-old producer from Switzerland has crafted a marvelous progressive house production with “Angels.” From its warm synth pads to its quiet kick drums, “Angels” is a delightful and peaceful construction that patiently strings you along with its near-celestial grandeur.

Mike Mago – The Show (Original Mix)
Techy bassline, piano riffs, and crooning vocals — perfect.
