DA’s Sunday Morning Medicine: Volume 82
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 any agonizing effects that a long weekend of partying might have incurred.
1. Give Darius a shot at one of house music’s biggest vocal 2014 and blissful downtempo indie dance commences. The French talent’s take on ‘Sunlight’ is a polished and poignantly chilled rendition, transporting one of the year’s biggest top lines into a whole new level of chill.
2. When Kölsch says he wants to make things personal, he isn’t overexaggerating. The past Essential New Tune is about a fictional turtle who could stop time, a musing made all the more beautiful courtesy of a little back and forth from the Danish heavyweight’s stunning composure and Gregor Schwellenbach’s haunting string work.
3. Lucas Chambon is another French upstart making big and bold movements within the indie dance / nu disco soundwaves. “Citadel” sounds like it should have dropped on Outcross or the like some fifteen years ago, bringing a warm and reassuringly funky fusion to the table to show that this nation’s talent pool goes well beyond the robotic kingpins of the craft.
4. Germay has a swell of incredible house talents on its hands right now, with Tube & Berger and national peers In.Deed representing the height of its underground remits. “Highness” is yet to his the market just yet, but the impending Kitball single is the perfect blend of dialled-back tech house with a deep melodic twist to wake to.
5. PRMD have been picking up some truly stunning assets over the past 12 months, but the man known as Jake Cull represents a real spike in the label’s eclectic output. Under the guise of Tundran, full-bodied indie dance with a nostalgic pop twist is what drives “Still Afriad” home as a truly next generation take on a popular sound. This is of sophisticated cut with unlimited potential that everyone need’s in their early morning artillery.
