Known to tackle difficult covers, NYC-based producer Slow Hands, aka Ryan Cavanagh, delivers an outrageously smooth version of Bon Iver's "Towers." It's an ideal track for post-summer day dreaming, the kind that transports you briefly from the humdrum autumn into the midst of palm trees by the bucolic tranquility of a turquoise sea, swaying back and forth in a hammock with a colorful drink in hand. Cavanagh himself calls this genre "houstechisco"
"His tracks are sultry, laid-back affairs, with atmospheres as balmy as midsummer rooftop parties. Behind the decks, he keeps it deep and weird, bumping through subtle but epic sets that have made him a favorite at Wolf + Lamb, the dark and soulful Brooklyn label that Resident Advisor ranked #3 of 2009. With only a handful of releases to his name, Slow Hands is one of house music's newest virtuosos." -Cielo
