DA’s Sunday Morning Medicine: Volume 53
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.
It doesn’t get more diverse than this week’s collection of tunes for Sunday Morning Medicine. From poetry-powered bass music, to Thomas Jack’s tropical house, to Talking Heads and Trentemøller, this week’s edition of SMM features a wide array of soothing selections, divergent enough to satisfy the tastes of the most persnickety dance music enthusiasts.
1. What do you get when you mix slam poetry with deep dubstep? Something close to Author’s “Keep Moving.” Soulful, introspective, and a hell of a track to wake up to — dive into J. Sparrow And Ruckspin’s engrossing collaboration with Rider Shafique.
2. Australia’s Thomas Jack is making waves with his catchy brand of “tropical house.” Jack’s take on Of Monsters and Men is too charming to overlook. Catch his recent Axis Mix for Dancing Astronaut if you missed it.
3. Fans of Talking Heads and the 80s in general will be delighted by Gigamesh’s modern resurrection of “Once in a Lifetime.”
4. Trentemøller has gained countless renown for his unique, rock-centric approach to electronica. His remix of The Do’s “Too Insistent” is a softer approach from the Danish master.
5. Green Velvet’s underground alias Cajmere gets a sensual deep house makeover from remix technicians Pleasurekraft.
