Dunian+SolarsBears+Shlohmo+Mathieu

This Dunian track makes me picture a smiling person stumbling in slowmotion with their eyes hold in a dreamy state, not a care in the world, completely content, now i’m wondering what kind of person you’re imagining and if they look like the one in my head.

Don’t let the wonky intro for this Solar Bears track scare you off, its a very rewarding listen, epic echos and a sugary drive to it all.

Just a lazy day off sitting on the porch, really dry air keeping me awake, might take a nap still. Shlohmo switches it up on us with a hint of soul and its tweaked perfectly enough so you never think about how loopy it is.

Stephan Mathieu plays with tone as if you can grab a very thin strand of it out of the air and pull to no end, meanwhile as you pull the strand switches from different palette gradient colors, dangerously hypnotic.

Yes @Pablo ,that’s indeed Elizabeth Fraser. But those are samples from her period with the 80′s band The Cocteau Twins. (long before Massive Attack’s Teardrop) I was a huge fan in that time of that (kinda new wave) band. I hope they don’t come in trouble using that so many and recognizable samples. But I think The Cocteau twins is ready for re-discover for the now generation.

The intro to the Solar Bears track is reminiscent of the intro to Arcade Fire’s “Ready to Start” off the Suburbs album.

If I can get mathematical for a moment, I would say: Solar Bear’s intro to “Cub” is similar but not congruent to Arcade Fire’s intro to “Ready to Start”.
