Curing A Hangover

Friday nights are usually fun but can also be very deadly.  If you’re in the same condition as me this morning, chances are you could go for a couple tracks to make you feel better.  Luckily, I have just the cure.

Monoliths is one hell of a great instrumental.  It has a very sound ambient vibe to it.  Clear, clean, and constant, Maserati surely has tweaked out something brilliant.  Every aspect of this track grabs you, sucks you, and tosses you around before spitting you out.  The group hails from Athens, Georgia and will be breaching the northern border in the next month.  Watch out for shows in Montreal (Oct 01.09- @ La Tulipe), Toronto (Oct 02.09- @ Lee’s Palace), and Vancouver (Oct 08.09 – @ Biltmore Cabaret).

Audraglint

I stumbled across Audraglint entitled, Frost the other day.  While it strays a bit from the usual upbeat party bangers we try to provide on here, I liked it so much I had to post it.  The epic soft synth carry-away found within is spectacular.  Very dreamy, ambient, and very soft.  The crew releases their own stuff on their own label Audraglint Recordings.  Find more on them via their website, but more importantly, check out this track.

Well I guess we’ve established the musical theme of this post by now itchin’ toward the melodics of excellent music.  Classixx recently undertook a project remixing Yacht‘s Psychic City that turned out extremely well.  I used to sit on the fence with Classixx.  With their developed style and sound I found them inconsistent about six months ago.  Now after some spectacular couple of months (you can find a numerous amount of their tracks on here) I’m a big fan.  They seemed to have tuned and perfected themselves to where they want to be.

I saved arguably my favourite and best for last.  Something rare as some people tend to hit up the first couple tracks and move on.  However, this should be a rare treat for those who followed through with every track.  Michael Cassette‘s Moonlight Runner is a jam packed synth melody that is absolutely groovin.  I like how he conquers the fine line of producing dance beats all while keeping the mood very light and mellow.  Very interesting stuff. I dig it.

Alas hopefully this helps you out, and hey if you’re not hungover I’m sure you’ll still enjoy them.

Alright fine… one dance banger to keep everyone happy.

Flirtphonic tossed out a new track, Bubble Burst, that seemed to catch a lot of attention lately- as it should.  The track has a unique flavour of dips and heavy electronic breakdowns to keep you bobbin’
