Today’s Untz: How Long (Tensnake Rework) / Sugardaddy

Whenever Tensnake releases something I am already assuming I’m going to like it. You’d think that would be a good thing, but I definitely like going into a show or listening to a song with little to no expectations.

The thing with Tensnake though is even with my natural high expectations most everything always comes out amazing. This rework is just that. It’s a perfect little groover with some space… just the way I like it. My friend and electronic cohort likens electronic music to coming home with a chick. He doesn’t want to just walk in the place and go to town. He wants some space to feel things out. Maybe a nice glass a wine and some good conversation and then the good stuff. It’s the same with electronic music in my humble opinion.

If you want a cheap bang Tensnake is not your man. This guy knows how to work a crowd or a girl. Wait what am I talking about again? #untz /tom

Today’s Untz: Every Night I Say A Prayer (Tensnake Remix)/ Little Boots

Little Boots is back after some time off accompanied with a remix from Tensnake. I first heard this remix on The Magician’s mixtape and finally crossed its path again today.

I love the deep 80′s era synth lines and funky bass, backed by her hauntingly sexy vocals along with Andy Butler of New York disco group Hercules and Love Affair. The softer drum claps are a nice touch as well. It’s hauntingly retro and futuristic all at the same time. #untz/Tom


fade into everything

25 Nov

I have to blog in hiding from my one year old nephew because he is completely mesmerized by macbooks and tries to swallow them whole. My sister obtained a strange device that converted her old iPhone into a toy for him to play with. Hopefully he will take to music as much as he does to technology.

Today’s Emo: Fade Into You / Mazzy Star

‘some kind of light into your darkness’

My dad played his Best of Bridge School compilation all of Thanksgiving Day, and coming across this track again was a welcome reunion of sound. Fade into You is the kind of track you would imagine slow dancing to at prom if they played artists with a degree of complexity beyond Beyonce, with a steady sway to it that lingers. It settles into you so nicely.

The duo of Mazzy Star has released their first new song in fifteen years, Common Burn, in October, and while it is easy on the ears it doesn’t strike quite the same chord with me. Still worth a listen, and this track definitely worth a revisit. #emo

Today’s Untz: Everything in its Right Place / Radiohead (Tensnake remix)

‘everything in it’s right place’

Something I am thankful for: this edit of Radiohead’s Everything by Hamburg based dj/producer, Tensnake. The remix has been blowing up the blogesphere and dominating my speakers all week. It has been hard to track down an online version, but YouTube to the rescue. Right place, right now. #untz
