DA Premiere: Astronomar – Dick Dick Booty Booty Dick (Reprise)
Alaska native Mar Lumba has been marauding around the dance realm as Astronomar for quite some time. Purveying a perennially peculiar brand of club-compatible music, Lumba’s remixes and originals are impossible to nail down to a singular classification. 2015 saw the producer burst from the woodwork with a main stage performance at HARD Day of the Dead and a beautifully bizarre EP, earning him a spot on our Artists to Watch list for 2016.
Astronomar kicks off his year with a reprise of his seminal original, the obscenely goofy “Dick Dick Booty Booty Dick.” Though the application of a “less is more” technique may seem ironic to reimagine such a brash original, Lumba finds success in leaving the song’s foundation largely intact. Rather than fully re-conceptualize “Dick Dick Booty Booty Dick,” Lumba’s VIP manifests itself in a frenzied embellishment, adding a wild sense of furor through emboldened bass, atmospheric crashes, and ubiquitously dissonant builds.
