Com Truise always puts me in a weird headspace. He’s easily one of my favorite producers, and you can tell a great one by their willingness to leave open space in a song (see 3:26 on this track). But what I love most about him is the bizarre facets of my personality that his music unlocks in me.
A few notes of one his tracks and its like the (figurative) straight-jacketed hipster that lives inside my brain is having a rave all by himself, mosh pitting with imaginary characters with glo-sticks coming out his eyes. But I love that kid inside me — that kid knows how to party even when he’s at his lowest.
Though I feel with his recent remixes, namely the darkly dreamy take on Foster The People’s “Helena Beat“ and now this amazing version of Maroon 5′s “One More Night,” Com Truise is allowing me to imagine what it’d be like if that crazy hipster was allowed to flourish in the modern club scene. His dance tracks, exemplified by “One More Night,” aren’t afraid to languish in the lascivious nature of club beats that leave you beating your better self back to bed with a dangerous stranger.
They are perfect soundtracks to the nights you let yourself go out to the club and throw caution to the wind. In my case, that meant going out in San Francisco and waking up in Palm Springs, and fuck knows how I got there. Ah, the marker of a great night out.
Check out more at his SoundCloud and follow him for your own sake. Oh, and you can thank Kris Kish over at The Sights and Sounds blog for turning me onto this track — I saw “Maroon 5″ and almost bypassed it.
