Lazy Sundays 36 features a video of Axwell's set at the Winter X-Games, a Carl Cox set from 1999, and music from Steve Angello, Bassjackers, Dusky, and more. Let's bring Monday in with a bang, shall we?
Dusky - Atone (Original Mix)
We kick off this late episode of Lazy Sundays with one of my favorite tracks from the deep house dudes Dusky. Dusky really needs to revive their Light Cycles podcast from a couple of years ago. There were only three episodes. The duo from London definitely need more attention around them, even after capturing the number one spot in the Beatport Top 100 with 'Careless' back in October.
Mr Probz - Waves (Robin Schulz Remix)
This remix was originally released abroad in the summer of 2013, but it has recently cracked the Beatport Top 10 due to its official stateside release under Ultra Records this month. It's not a track that I would normally associate with Ultra Records, but I dig the forward-thinking here. Robin Schulz's remix of 'Waves' is laid back and chill, just what you'd expect to hear in Lazy Sundays!
John Digweed - Bedrock Spring Promo Mix
John Digweed treated all of us to a special extra episode of Transitions this week with a spring promo mix. The Bedrock Spring Promo Mix showcases new material forthcoming on Digweed's Bedrock label this spring, and features original releases and remixes from Guy J, Sasha Carassi, Arjun Vagale, Ramiro Lopez, and Coyu. The tracklist can be found on Soundcloud. Dig in and enjoy, because this mix goes down real smooth.
Harvey McKay – Silk Road (Original Mix)
Glasgow-based techno producer Harvey McKay has been one of my favorite producers recently. It's easy to see why with releases like 'Silk Road' or 'Lost', off of his new EP, 'The Illusion of Control' out now on Drumcode. I also recommend that you check out tracks like, 'Hard to See', and 'Chiral'. McKay is insanely diverse with his style and approach, and has releases on Drumcode, Bedrock, Intec, Soma, and Cocoon.
Old School Fire: Bob Sinclar feat. Ben Onono – Rainbow of Love (Original Mix)
One of, if not THE happiest track ever produced. 'Rainbow of Love' made absolutely no sense to me when a friend of mine introduced the video to me back in 2010. The cartoon video portrays Bob Sinclar as a little boy, walking around with a guitar-playing stork. The creativity here is off the charts.
"....why go chasing rainbows.....rainbows from your door..."
Angger Dimas & Bassjackers – RIA (Original Mix)
Wow. I haven't heard 'RIA' in over a year. The widely acclaimed collaborative original from Angger Dimas and Bassjackers is truly a diamond in the rough, with synths and chords that grind progressively into tomorrow. The drop in 'RIA' is bloated with Bassjackers' signature bass. I hope I revived some of your great memories by including this track in Lazy Sundays this week.
Axwell - Live @ Winter X-Games 2014
Axwell and Tiesto dropped by the Winter X-Games in Aspen last month to headline the X-Games' music event. Here is an uploaded video of Axwell's set from YouTube. The quality isn't spectacular, but getting to see this video instead of just listening to it through Soundcloud is a treat. I'd stand outside in the snow for a show....especially one that features a producer of Axwell's caliber.
Steve Angello – Tribal Inc (Original Mix)
Steve Angello and tribal house. Two things that go together, and should stay together. Angello has said many of times that he prefers techno and tech house above all else. A return to his roots has been what electronic dance music fans have dreamed about since he parted ways from Swedish House Mafia. It's been almost a year since the split, and we're all still sitting, waiting, wishing.
Carl Cox – Live @ Crobar, Chicago (Essential Mix, 1999)
Oh Yes! Oh Yes! One of the most beloved Carl Cox sets ever is here for your techno-loving ears to devour. The level of energy exhausted that night in the city of Chicago back in 1999, paired with one of the best tracklists I've ever heard = BOOM!
Old School Fire: Snap! – Rhythm Is A Dancer (Original Mix)
Them feels. Them early '90s feels.
"Rhythm is a dancer/ It's a soul companion / You can feel it everywhere / Lift your hands and voices / Free your mind and join us / You can feel it in the air.."
Lazy Sundays is a wrap. Start your week off with the Elements of Life below. Nos vemos el próximo Domingo!
