Viernes + Cepia + Deastro + Ratatat

Posted by Jakub

I really like today’s batch of tracks, all are really catchy in my mind. This Viernes track i’ve been waiting to share, its shimmery, light and builds nicely. The piano and vocals are so inviting while the guitar sits back and sets the tone yet never takes control which is a good formula for what I love in good shoegaze.

Cepia shared his official remix of M.I.A., this might be the first place its been posted and were proud to have it, he did a great job. You can always trust Cepia to push post IDM forward and he shows that here by making it work perfectly with a pop hit. Highly Recommended.

Deastro puts a spark to DIY/lo-fi and gives it that extra energy but from a producer with experience in his sound, you don’t always get that feeling, man what good drive too.

I think I have found my favorite Ratatat track which is named after their original band name I guess, what? the intro sounds like Mum, who would of thought, lovely work from this Brooklyn duo.

yeah, that intro really does sound a lot like Mum… Really strong track, definitely pushes my buttons, which Ratatat have failed to do recently…

oh, cepia! i was excited about him for years, with only a one-minute clip (sent to me by a friend) called “marina” (prior to the release of the actual track). i’m really excited about this remix. i tried to get into the original when you posted it, but I’m just not a huge fan of MIA…

so, thank you…yet again!
