Mike Posner – I Took A Pill In Ibiza (Seeb Remix)
I can’t get this song out of my head. Posner does an excellent job of painting a mellow picture against a backdrop of intense partying. This remix also makes the song sound huge. I mean literally. On headphones the sound fills your brain in a big spacey way. On repeat.
Tame Impala – The Less I Know The Better (Live on Triple-J)
I can imagine listening to this by the pool on a hot summer afternoon.
Moby & The Void Pacific Choir – Almost Loved (Moby Remix)
Woah, this one hits the ground running. The hypnotic loop takes shape in seconds and it’s all up from there in terms of energy. If you want the opposite, check out Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep. – a cool album that Moby is giving away as a free download.
Oh Wonder – Drive
I could do an entire playlist with songs titled Drive and it would be a pretty good list too. The latest I’ve discovered is this one by London electropop duo Oh Wonder. Love the orchestral accents in the chorus. Also, does anyone else hear hints of Johnny Hates Jazz’s Shattered Dreams?
Bette Midler – The Rose
I discovered this song only this weekend. What a flawless vocal.
