DA’s Sunday Morning Medicine: Volume 100
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.
Today marks the 100th edition of Sunday Morning Medicine. We started this feature in late 2012 as a way to explore the deeper and dreamier side of electronic music. Over the last two years, we’ve brought you over 500 chilled-out selections from some of our favorite left-field artists. From tech house, to techno, to glitch hop and downtempo, we’ve left no genre behind, but instead proceeded with one goal in mind: to provide a weekly stream of soothing musical therapy.
To commemorate our centennial edition, we’ve chosen ten of our favorite tracks from the past 100 volumes.
1. It’s crazy to think that Chris Malinchak’s affable “If U Got It” first arrived in late 2012. Fittingly, it found its way into our first deep house edition of Sunday Morning Medicine.
2. Maya Jane Coles has been a consistent favorite of SMM. All the way back from Volume 3, MJC’s remix of “Rule The World” is still perfect.
3. Maribou State’s music is ideal for rainy days and contemplative moods. Nothing quite captures the essence of our feature as well as “Truths.”
4. What do you get when you mix slam poetry with deep dubstep? Something close to Author’s “Keep Moving.”
5. Much of SMM was spent musing over the brilliance of Anjunadeep, and more particularly, the awesome duo of Thomas Schwartz & Fausto Fanizza.
6. Adriatique bring an otherworldly vision to deep and tech house. “Space Fox” from the summer of 2014 is still a favorite.
7. You can’t speak of hypnotizing electronic music without mentioning Jon Hopkins. His remix of Four Tet is four years old but its soporific charm is as strong as ever.
8. Summer of 2013 brought a special Daft Punk edition featuring Darkside’s re-imagination of “Beyond.”
9. Andrew Bayer’s left-field album If It Were You, We’d Never Leave proved a perfect candidate for SMM.
10. Ok, so Above & Beyond’s acoustic cover of “You Got To Go” may not necessarily be electronic, but it feels fitting to end with something as beautiful as Zoë Johnston backed by a full live band.
Thank you for tuning in and may we continue to inspire your early morning musing. Check out all of our past 100 editions of Sunday Morning Medicine here.
