Music Monday: November 25, 2013
With three remixes this week, we'll be sure to keep you groovin', right up until Turkey Day. —Corbin
Jamie XX - Untitled
This Jamie XX tune that was ripped from a RBMA "Late Night + Day Berlin" mix really shows what Jamie's been up to, and it has that Burial-esque beauty we've all come to love. We're excited for an official release on this, and to hear more from Jamie. His tropical-inspired, broken house music is a great way to stay warm this wintery Monday.
Shlohmo remixes have become few and far between. (Check out his track "Later" to get a sense of his style.) His remixes have a similarity to Clams Casino, but are different enough to let everyone know that they're certainly listening to Shlohmo. This is a huge, slow, gorgeous track. The original "Wings" is a lot different from this version.
What struck me first about this song is that it sounds like a Scandinavian soiree. Boat Club, the band from Gothenburg, Sweden, home to many balearic greats, originally released this EP in 2007. Saint Etienne (LDN) only recently remixed it to promote the EP's reissue on Cascine. Solid remix.
Annnd, this is the third remix for this Music Monday. Joe Hertz has definitely made a name for himself with these remixes. This one is a bit more reserved than the classic Deep House stuff, but in a good way. This is also consistent with the warm sound we're looking for this winter.
Many don't know that the duo Rhye is actually headed by two men. Some confuse Mike Milosh's sultry, Sade-like vocals for a woman's, but he is, in fact, a man. His three previous albums have a gorgeous vibe, with a soft, intimate sound. Milosh's new album Jetlag is on NPR as a stream right now. This track, with a video featuring his wife Alexa, helps to pull the heart strings.
