The Radar 132 – Mixed by NASAYA
NASAYA delivers some funk-based electronics in the latest episode of Dancing Astronaut’s “The Radar,” pouring his tropically-inspired sound into this 55-minute mix. Born and raised in Reunion Island, home to an extinct volcano and some luscious palm trees, the multi-instrumentalist derives influences from the French region’s ethically diverse culture, including elements of jazz, classic rock, pop, and dance music.
Now based in Los Angeles, NASAYA came to the United States with a mission: graduating from the Berklee College of Music and touring as direct support for Goldroom in 2019. With releases on Majestic Casual and Concord Records to date, he demonstrates true talent on his latest release, “JUNE,” an upbeat, synth-lead melody with R&B vocalist Floyd Fuji.
His guest mix entails a groovy selection of jams that hit all sides of the electronic music spectrum, including slower funk tracks like Tame Impala‘s “Is It True” and classics from Daft Punk, Robyn, and Mark Ronson. He also throws in some of his original discography and remixes, including a rework of Tim Atlas’ “Figure A.”
