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.
This week’s SMM features everything from deep house, to nu-disco, to some classic Chemical Brothers. Them Jeans drop a blissful remix to Flight Facilities’ “Clair de Lune,” while Dennis Rivera and Monsieur Adi provide some infectious remixes to “Awake” and “Pompeii.” Jean Tonique takes on the Kooks, while we revisit the Chemical Brothers’ enchanting 1997 original “Where Do I Begin.”
If you missed any of DA‘s more mellow posts from the week, make sure to check out Duke Dumont’s nu-disco original “Need U (100%),” Amtrac’s funky spin on Alex Metric’s “Rave Weapon,” T.E.E.D.’s deep take on Foals’ “My Number,” and Four Tet’s free 0181 LP. For five tracks to lift your spirit from the debilitating effects of a well-spent weekend, click past the break.
1. Flight Facilities’ “Clair De Lune” is spellbinding to say the least. Them Jeans provides a house edit that maintains all the beauty of the original while implementing a more prominent kick drum.
2. Boasting an upbeat bass guitar riff, Dennis Rivera’s house remix of Electric Guest’s “Awake” is like a fresh cup of coffee for your ears.
3.As if Bastille’s new single “Pompeii” wasn’t catchy enough, Monsieur Adi puts a groovy house spin on the track.
4. Jean Tonique takes on the Kooks’ iconic single “Naive,” turning the original into a bouncy disco house tune.
5. Finally, we couldn’t help but feature the Chemical Brothers’ “Where Do I Begin” from back in 1997. The song opens up with “Sunday Morning I’m waking up; can’t even focus on my coffee cup” for crying out loud.
