New Music // Memory Tapes – Wait In The Dark (Jensen Sportag remix)

6 Jul

Hailing from Nashville, Jensen Sportag is the production duo of Elvis Craig and Austin Wilkinson.

They’re relatively new, having just released their first Ep Pure Wet in July, after a string of quality remixes.

But to be perfectly honest, the reason I’m blogging about these guys is this track, which has quickly become one of my favourites for the summer of 2012. If I ever meet Austin and Elvis in person I’m going to give them a really sincere hug for this blissful groove.

New Music // Memory Tapes

20 May

Memory Tapes is the name of the current project for the prolific New Jersey-based musician and producer, Dayve Hawk. Prior to this incarnation he released music under the names Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes, each with it’s own varied sound. Like so many others he was labelled early as a chillwave artist but has since evolved his sound and carved out his own identity.

Bicycle is probably one of his best tracks to date. It starts out as minimalist toe tapper but quickly adds a heavy bassline that turns it into a bit of a monster…and then just when you think you’ve got it figured out it performs one of the best change ups I’ve ever heard. Please, do yourself the favour and listen to this track but when it gets to the 3:20 mark close your eyes, turn up the volume, and really give yourself to the song. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
