0162 John Wizards – Muizenberg (The 2 Bears Remix) @ 3:15

Sunday, January 26th, 2014

This is a highlight of late 2013; the original of which is from a fantastic album which has flown way under the radar considering how good it is. Check the categories it falls into.

A great way to start 2014, turn it up!

“everything and nothing stays the same, the only rule, I know, is not to follow”

In LA, there is a lot of great radio, the best is KCRW I think. I’d always known about Garth Trinidad who plays all that classic soul and rare 70’s stuff I love, but it was later in the evening and this was a house show, which I’ve since looked up to discover is a show put on by Raul Campos. So we’re heading home after dinner, and on comes this track. All I can think about is what makes radio so great, and how everybody is jamming to this classic sounding deep house track at the exact same moment. This track is even more warm than the weather out there.

And the best part, gotta be that synth wash at the :20 mark below…

House will never die! Let the brosteppers and Skrillex get all that commercial money. This is the real deal electronic music being made right now in 2012.

0137 Nicolas Jaar – El Bandido @ 1:06

Nicolas reveals such a deft touch on this track. I edited out only 11 seconds, but listen to whole song below to put it in perspective.  The best part is clearly the sample at the 0:06 second mark on the edit. I can’t pick out the instrument, it sounds like a guitar but run through some compression and other effects. He uses is so sparsely, that it’s always a nice surprise when it drops in. That’s so much better than spoiling us with it, which would have been so easy.

I chose the 1:06 mark because that’s the 2nd time you hear it, you start to wonder if it was a one off.

“burn, burn, burn…”

I wonder what the UK boys think of this one, it’s kinda hidden at the 4:45 mark but still.

That extra little step in front of the drop makes it unique. Heavy drums and a soulful vocal, nice combo Mr. D.

0104 Slow Hands – Auld Lang Syne @ 5:29

2 weeks late for this one I know, but save it for next year. A great re-edit of the New Years classic with more bounce and danciness.
