J. MacLean+Toro Y Moi+DMX Krew+Seahawks

Posted by Jakub

Recently i’ve been working on a new Heathered Pearls mix for the ISO50 blog and tears came to my eye when I came across this gem from The Juan MacLean, the perfect marriage between Dub and Slow Disco and this perfectly adjusted daytime jam by Toby Tobias of one of the blogs favs Toro Y Moi < looks off into the distance proudly, single tear runs down my face >.

If this is your first taste of DMX Krew I suggest you get on iTunes, Insound or Boomkat UK and start grabbing up his work in the past, the man has an ear for one of a kind production, he always mashing together styles and synths sound you might never hear again.

The Seahawks take their turn on merging the sounds of our oceans and making them collide with what some of us have convinced ourselves space might sound like, the real magic sets in at 1:17 and on for the full effect, oh and happy new year everyone.

Love the picture….reminds me of the post late nineties Asian currency bubble where Malaysia real estate had become overgrown with natural flora due to lack of development. Seems to fit the mood of the music as well.

Holy hell, this Juan Maclean tune is fire; a cross between Deep Chord and Morgan Geist. I can hear vocals over it. Hmmm.

Picture is from architect Ricardo Bofill’s adaptation of a cement factory near Barcelona. It is now part-home and part-architecture office for Bofill.
