I was liaising with a duo from Seattle called Beat Connection when they sent over a tracklist of a mix they'd put together. I'd already agreed to post them, but then I saw said tracklist and felt a warming sensation run down my spine. You'll see what I'm talking about momentarily.
The following track is from Beat Connection's upcoming EP release dubbed 'Beaches and Sky'. It's scheduled to be released in the next few months, and I must say it's nothing short of spectacular. Falling very much in line with the Washed Out/Neon Indian sound that is all the rage at the moment, 'Same Damn Time' features simple rhythmic backing with smooth keyboard samples. The off-beat synths that are almost filtered through the middle of the song bode well with the eerily emotive vocals. Overall, a very cool track. To quote my fellow blogger, it sucks that I've only heard about this track now while the Southern Hemisphere decends into Winter. This is as Summery as they come.
Same Damn Time - Beat Connection
Now I did mention a mix? Better believe I did.
Special Disco Version by Beatconnection
I can't describe how awesome-ly awesome this mix is. The song selection is ridiculous and I think I have found my new favourite DJ duo. We love Beat Connection. I'll put the tracklist in the comments below this post.
You can stay updated on all their progress on their Myspace or their Facebook.
Peace and Love.
