Editors’ Selections: Week of June 10th, 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.
Rüfüs – Desert Night
Not available until June 21st, Rüfüs’s “Desert Night” fuses indie dance vibes with a sex-fueled deep house bass line. Like most everything electronic that comes out of Australia, “Desert Night” is smooth in its delivery — poppy enough to be easily consumed but nuanced enough to establish a charming style all its own.
Cashmere Cat – Mirror Maru (G.Vump Remix)
Like most gen-whatevers, when I like something I want more of it. The same held true for G.Vump, and after their Birdy Nam Nam remix came out this week I took to SoundCloud to feed the beast. What I scrounged up was their remix of Cashmere Cat’s “Mirror Marou,” a tune accurately described as “catnip for people.” A blend of vintage hotel lobby soundtrack and hi-hat laced, piano pumped, helium hued production work, Louis and Guillaume complete the tune with a cat sample. Meow.
Klingande – Jubel (Original Mix)
The saxophone is back ladies and gents. Klingande, composed of French students Cedric & Edgar only starting making music together last December resulting in masterpiece “Jubel.” The track has been making mad waves across Europe, and will be sure to blow up soon within North America. Infusing countless layers of sound mixed with a subtle vocal, it’s impossible to not feel something while listening.
