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.
For the last Sunday Morning Medicine of 2013, we hit you with a diverse array of selections: midtempo from KOAN Sound, deep house from Amtrac and Bakermat, garage from Enigma Dubz, and a classic from Laurent Garnier. For those recovering from a pre-New Years weekend, and those gearing up for a sleepless NYE, take a chance to cleanse your consciousness with this week’s edition of Sunday Morning Medicine.
1. When you get KOAN Sound, Culprate, Asa, and Reso into the studio, you can expect some amazing results. The gathering of the dexterous bass music artists resulted in “Cascade,” a beautiful midtempo track with a delightfully organic feel.
2. Enigma Dubz is a recurring artist on SMM. His deep productions lend themselves to the delicacy of early morning music listening. “Near Me” is a smooth garage tune: one of his most pleasant originals to date.
3. As if there was any reason to love Duke Dumont’s “Need U (!00%)” anymore, Amtrac laid down this silky house remix two months ago.
4. Before there was the Hardwell remix, before there was Funkagenda and Mark Knight’s progressive remake, there was Laurent Garnier’s original “Man With the Red Face:” an epic nine minute house music journey.
5. While we’re on a jazz kick, you can never go wrong with Bakermat. His ability to combine live instrumentation with a clean house beat is breathtaking.
