Obin+Royksopp+Empire+Runaway

Posted by Jakub

Andre Obin - PremonitionAndré Obin is similar to what I heard coming out of the UK in the late 90′s like the usual names that might make you a little less interested like Sasha or Underworld but he puts a refreshing twist to it that might be more stiff and cuts out the cheese and dishes out the vocals and synths more upfront.

Royksopp’s Night Out keeps up a great pace and offers such great dynamics, its such a crowd pleaser with elements of DJ Shadow and The Avalanches but dips into really nice psychedelic parts and the breakdown towards the end which reminds me of Pink Floyd and it fits right in without any interruption.

Now we get to probably the catchiest song of them all of 2008, Empire Of The Sun, I must have listen to this song 20 times already today. I didn’t know what to think of it first time(kind of like an episode of Tim and Eric on Adult Swim) around but now I catch myself trying to stop singing it so just be warned before you listen. The video looked like so much fun to make, looks like they had a nice size budget and plenty of freedom.

DFA has a newer signing Runaway who DJ quite often in Manhattan, a lot of distant disco guitar noodling and keeping it simple and dark, a nice way for a DJ to keep a late crowd from leaving.
