For all of you fast-paced workweek desk dwellers: it’s time to relax, slow down and chill out.
Within the past year or so, Swedish import group Little Dragon has been spreading through the music world like a wildfire (pun intended). Their meteoric rise to success with the release of Ritual Union put them on the map with new collaboration efforts, festival appearances and widespread national tour dates, leaving us Indie Shuffler’s a gamut of music to cover and extend to the masses.
This remixed track of Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union” is a step in a more tranced out direction with subtle energetic builds and electronic swoops. The downtempo, super smooth offering from German producer Tensnake is one that is sexy, frosty, and poised all at the same time. Yukimi Nagan’s voice remains cool and collected while the beat yields control and takes your ears on a slow ride toward indie chart-topping bliss.
What I like best about this remix is the fact that it sounds like a track that Little Dragon would actually produce; it doesn’t stray too far from the original but it does create an alluring fresh sound that keeps my ears interested in hearing more.
In conclusion weekend welcomers, please sit back, take a listen and embrace the fine music coming out of your happily awaiting sound systems.
