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.
On this week’s Sunday Morning Meds, renowned house songstress Imani, leading Norwegian nu house talents DiskJokke and Terje Bakke, Compuphonic’s deep and melodic mastery and leading German indie dance asset Satin Jackets.
1. Renowned vocal house mouthpiece Imani is always a welcome injection of soulful ambience. With Reel People on the mix, her silky smooth top line remains enough to keep even the worst of recovery periods at bay.
2. With so many remixes for Kraak & Smaak’s vocal delight “Good For The City” currently doing the rounds, DiskJokke offers up the most Sunday-proofed of the lot. In ‘nite’ mode, this Oslo-based talent dials back his vocal remix to the utmost effect.
3. For his recent Jadore EP for Visionquest, Norwegian talent Terje Bakke can be found exercising many musical dimensions. The supple grooves and sparing melodic play of “Nibenay” marks a chilled out affair worth waking for.
4. Maxime Firket, better known on the floor as Compuphonic, has a proven penchant for deep and melodic house music. Behind the wheel of Kiwi’s Mayfly, perfected leys and poignant bass hooks extend his wrath to Need Want’s nu house armada.
5. Stain Jackets has been one of Germany’s more luminary indie dance protagonists of late. Add him to the equation of Enormous Tune’s leading Swiss melody makers Nora En Pure and the product is one of masterful melodies and stripped-back ambience throughout.
