This week features Poolside’s exceptional rework of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan,” Bicep and Ejeca’s modern ’90s track “You,” Something Good’s free original “Colors,” Trentmøller’s remix of “Brains,” and Nicolas Jaar’s groundbreaking essential mix.
If you missed any of DA‘s more chilled out posts from the week, make sure to check out Pretty Lights’ apocalyptic amalgamation “End of the World 2012,” Kill Paris’s R&B-dubstep tune “I Love You Lana Del Rey,” and Andrew Bayer’s grandiose original “Gaff’s Eulogy.” For five tracks to soothe your aching, post-weekend-partying hangover, click past the break.
1. Poolside’s rework of Black Sabbath’s “Planet Caravan” is absolutely sublime: a 100 bpm masterpiece equipped with dreamy vocals and catchy string work. Prepare to get lost in this one and make sure to download it for free from SoundCloud.
2. Bicep and Ejeca have done something special with their collaborative track “You.” The duo describe the track as “inspired by the early 90s warehouse rave era with a modern twist.”
3. Something Good offers up “Colors,” a disco-tinged, spacey deep house track, as a free download off SoundCloud.
4. Trentemøller’s neurotropic remix of Lower Dens’ “Brains” has a quick, lo-fi groove.
5. Finally, we couldn’t help but shine the spotlight back on Nicolas Jaar’s incredible essential mix after BBC Radio 1 recently voted it essential mix of the year. For those who haven’t heard it yet, you’re in for a treat.
