When Saints Go Machine Fail Forever (Nicholas Jaar Remix)
MIXTAPE MONDAY! CONTINUED!
I told you I was going to take Mixtape Mondays into Tuesday, and I wasn’t kidding. This mixtape is so fantastic it needed a day and it’s very own post. This hypersoul mix was created by one of the best places to buy indie music on the web, Boomkat as a way to showcase the tracks they have had on heavy rotation as of late.
I couldn’t be more enthused with their selection. Read their reasons for throwing this mix together below, and peep my favorite track off the mix above, a Nicolas Jaar remix of When Saints Go Machine's “Forever Fail.” Get’s really fucking weird and needed to be revisited. Other faves on this comp include Two Inch Punch, Vondelpark, Jacques Greene and Aluna George. I am obsessed with everything about this mix. You will be too. Stream the entire mix below via Boomkat.
What with Whitney’s untimely passing and the fug of Valentine’s day still lingering, it only seemed right to round up the best R&Bass/Soul-infused electronica from our digital stockpile this week. OK, maybe it’s a sideways take on the chart sound, but nonetheless these guys have definitely got their soul flow on. There’s straight-up vocal aces from Ango, AlunaGeorge and dBridge, beside pitch-shifting, autotuned stunts from o F F Love and Ifan Dafydd, while the likes of Nicolas Jaar, Ifan Dafydd and James Blake serve their subtly warped, blue-eyed perspective on matters of the heart. You also get tracks to make you bump - the frisky Teeth remix of Luomo, Two Inch Punch’s infectious ‘Love You Up’ and Jacques Greene’s plush ‘Flatline’ - and sublime moments like Neon Cloud’s ‘o’ and Shlohmo’s sensitive delicacy ‘Wen Uuu’. Whatever you choose to do with them, be safe kids, and take care of each other, yeah?
