Japan is lucky, they get the robots, the sushi, and now their version of Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories includes an exclusive track titled “Horizon.” In my opinion, “Horizon” is a much better close to the album than “Contact,” which I thought was a little too chaotic, especially when you compare it to this meditative bonus track. We’ll update as we find a way for people to purchase the track, but you can stream it below for now:
Late night post calls for Deep House. I’ve never dabbled in this territory, so I’m not going to act like I know what I’m talking about, but I can say that this redux version Kaskade just put on his hit “Raining” is phenomenal. If you’re a fan of this track you should also check out his redux version to “Atmosphere,” a new track coming out on June 10th. I put all three below and you can download the first two redux versions for free from the respective Soundclouds:
Leave it to Seven Lions and Minnesota to come out with a track that infuses all different genre’s of electronic music into one glitchy, bassed out mix. Mimi Page opens up the track with her atmospheric vocals, leading into a constant progression of sounds. This one’s being offered up for free off of OWSLA’s subscription service, The Nest; however if you aren’t subscribed to that service, you can grab it from Seven Lion’s Soundcloud below.
Can’t believe I haven’t shared this track with you all yet as it is a must have for this summer. Bunji Garlin provides the vocals in this uplifting track, while Major Lazer kicks it up a notch for those festival plays. You can check out both the remix and original mix below, be sure to grab it from Major Lazer’s Soundcloud since it’s a free download.
The name Giorgio Moroder may sound familiar if you’ve been following the Daft Punk hype lately, where his collaboration with them is arguably the best track on the Random Access Memories album. However, this isn’t about that collaboration but a recent score he did for a game Google produced called “Racer.” At the forefront is a very simple melody that slowly gets added to, as well as a cool white noise stutter, to create a pretty awesome song. The “Racer” theme isn’t a track you’d here an artist blast at a show, but it’s cool to see what older generations of artists can produce once they mess around with these advanced machines. You can download the track for free from the Google Play store.
