Junior Sanchez vs. Bad Suns – Salt (Original Mix)
Size Records has been steady in releasing material, and consistent in the records it’s put out. Coming as the most pivotal change of pace the label has seen this year, Junior Sanchez summons indie rock group Bad Suns and their standout “Salt.” Sanchez laces a back-to-basics house production with the vocals at a spoken word pace, gradually layering nostalgic dance elements and contagious drums, building out songmanship as new elements come into play. “Salt” soulfully matures from start to finish — the musical journey unfolding trick by trick — as Sanchez finds the grounds for a funky house record that’s one of the year’s most distinguishable. While the modern indie-electronica formula continues to settle with producers across the dance landscape, Junior Sanchez gives the concept a thought-provoking twist with “Salt” due to turn the tide on the trend.
