RMX ROUNDUP: Laura Doggett + Gilligan Moss / Milky Chance + Disciples / Daughter + LCAW


Welcome to another Remix Roundup, in which we bring you the latest and greatest mixes roaming about the interwebs. First up, we’re thrilled to share the new effort from Gilligan Moss, the Chicago-based electronic artist who continues to impress us with his artful production work. This time he undertakes the sultry track “Moonshine” from London chanteuse Laura Doggett, slicing its silky framework into a progressive and rhythmic reinterpretation. Pitch-shifting the vocals to be higher at some points and lower at others creates a nice contrast against the natural lower register of Laura’s sinuous vocals. Stream below.

Next we have the Disciples deep house edit of “Down By The River” from Milky Chance. The German duo came out of the woodworks this year with their hit track “Stolen Dance” off debut album Sadnecessary, where the sulky “DBTR” can be found also. With their flair for future-retro sound, the UK trinity aka Disciples add a slick bassline to the moody track for a more polished feel. Give it a spin below.

To complete the folksy throughline we seem to have crafted in this week’s roundup, enjoy this LCAW remix of “Run,” a B-side track from the UK indie folk trio known as Daughter. The German producer speeds up the tempo on the more muted original, accentuating the guitar lines and creating an almost onomatopoetic effect. We dig.

Glass Animals – Gooey

Perhaps you may have heard of Glass Animals, the much buzzed about quirk-pop quartet out of Oxford. Last year they signed with Wolf Tone records, the label started by super-producer Paul Epworth (known for his work with Adele, Florence Welch, and Foster the People). “Gooey” is the title of their first EP, as well as the lead single off their debut album Zaba, out June 9. The compelling track uses atmospheric and reverberated sounds to create a unique sonic formula that will keep your head spinning. Stream below, along with the inventive remix from Gilligan Moss, the Chicago producer that is generating a lot of buzz in his own rite.

Glass Animals has a smattering of U.S. tour dates this summer, and DC peeps can catch them at U Street Music Hall July 8.

Gilligan Moss – Choreograph


Every once in awhile, a musical composition comes along that catches you off guard and has the potential to completely alter the music landscape. Such is the case with Chicagoan Gilligan’s Moss’s single “Choregraph,” a song so distinct and variegated in style that it immediately commands your attention and calls for further listening. Syncopated rhythms and coruscating textures transport you to a totally unexpected and dazzling place 3:30 minutes in. Pick up a free DL of this intelligent piece of work via Soundcloud stat.
