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.
The Disclosure brothers are back with another track that demonstrates yet again why we are picking them out for major success. “Latch” is a beautifully melodic chill house track that treads a delicate line between garage and deep house. The track’s punchy bassline and airy melody are complemented perfectly by the soulful vocals of Sam Smith. It is quite a remarkable production, especially when you take into consideration that both of the brothers are still teenagers. Have a listen to the track below and stay tuned for the full release.
If you listened to Tiesto’s Club Life, Pete Tong’s Essential Selection or an Avicii set in the past few months, you’ve almost definitely heard Jupiter Ace’ massive track “Glowing In The Dark.” Well the house anthem undergoes some major makeovers in the remix package. With drum and bass, heavy electro and chilled out deep house, there is something for everyone. Click after the break to check out remixes from DC Breaks, Chooky & Screendeath.
British producer Redlight has developed quite a following with his eclectic garage house productions. Some of you might remember us bringing you his last single, “Get Out My Head.” Well we have more from Redlight as he previews his upcoming single “Lost In Your Love.” The track is defined by an extremely catchy piano chord melody which is guaranteed to have you hitting the repeat button a few times. “Lost In Your Love” has already gotten strong support from Annie Mac & Mistajam among others and is out August 6th on Polydor Records.
Annie Mac continues her great tradition of free music Mondays by giving away Karma Kid’s remix of Bwana’s “Baby, Let Me Finish.” Karma Kid, a 17 year old producer from the UK, remixes “Baby, Let Me Finish” into a funky, bounce infused garage tune. It is a very impressive effort from the 17 year old, and we’re adding Karma Kid our list of young talented producers to watch. Have a listen below and grab the free download here!
We know you like us to bring you great new artists you have not heard about yet. Guy and Howard Lawrence are two teenage brothers (only 16 & 19 years old!) hailing from London. Together they comprise Disclosure and have been making waves with their unique garage and dubstep influenced productions. Delta Heavy, in our recent interview with them, picked Disclosure out as one of the most exciting up and coming names in bass music. “What’s In Your Head” is a soulful garage production that is the perfect track to chill out to. Check it out below and grab it on iTunes on June 4th.
You’ve probably heard of The Wideboys before because of their extensive work remixing mainstream artists such as Aloe Blacc, Taio Cruz, Alex Gaudino & Jason Derulo. They are back with their latest single “The Word.” The track, premiered on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 show, combines elements of traditional Garage with sounds that are almost French Electro House. There are some really cool remixes of this coming out that really encompass everything from Drum & Bass to House to Electro. “The Word” is out on May 14th, check out the preview below.
