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.
While we usually strive to serve up a plate of mixed genres for our Sunday Morning Medicine, this week features an exclusive batch of deep, tech, and minimal house gems, many of which exhibit conspicuous garage influence. From older Maya Jane Coles, to a Julio Bashmore release on Dirtybird, to some sexy Jonas Rathman, to a Toyboy & Robins original and more, you can’t go wrong with this week’s SMM.
If you missed any of last week’s more soothing selections, make sure to check out Zedd and Foxes’ performance of “Clarity” on Letterman, Solidisco’s nu-disco remix of “You and I,” and Skrillex’s new Leaving EP. For five deep and tech tracks to make your morning a little less tiresome and a lot more groovy, click past the break.
1. Maya Jane Coles has quickly become one of my favorite producers. Her entrancing deep house tunes are unparalleled. Check out her remix of “She’s On Fire” by Bo Saris.
2. Julio Bashmore’s remix of “Steal Drums” by the Martin Brothers is minimal tech at its very best. It’s hard to go wrong with a release on Dirtybird.
3. Jonas Rathman’s “Since I Don’t Have You” is an ode to Jonas’s long lost microKorg, beaming with UK bass vibes and catchy off-color melodies. Pick up the original for free from SoundCloud.
4. Toyboy and Robin’s “No More Sunshine” is deep house with some prominent UK garage influence. Listen to the Sccucci Manucci release below.
5. Poupon puts a slow, hypnotizing spin on the Weekend’s soulful original “Enemy.”
