Straight Jam Thursday: Satin Jackets – The Hustle + Air Zaire – PLAY + Cajoline – Only Girl

by Reid Horton on December 13, 2012

Welcome back for another edition of the most jam-filled day of the week…


Straight Jam Thursdays on

First up, we have another great track from the hit machine’s known as Satin Jackets, and their new song “The Hustle“! Funked out disco guitars begin the head-nodding instantly, as the piano filled beat slowly builds behind you. Groovy in all the right places, this slow disco burner takes you on a late night ride through the streets, calmly passing endless rows of lights and neon signs. Half trip-back-in-time, half all-around-good-time, this song definitely deserves some heavy rotation. Enjoy!

Up next, we have a song that I just recently heard, Air Zaire‘s new track, “PLAY“, and I must say…WOW! Mildy esoteric without being boring, this tune carries you away on a delicate sea of tropical beats and ethereal synths. A driving beat propels the track forward, combining cut vocal samples with more tropical goodness, and we have a great vibe-filled track! Perfect for long summer days, or ya know…ANY day…this track is a quick getaway to a more “equatorial” locale.

And to close it out for the day, we have a groovy little track out of France from Cajoline, and their song “Only Girl“! Now, if you need a song to pick you up out of a rut/crevice/ditch/hole, this is it. Driving, bouncing, and careening off of your ear drums, the beat takes a hold of you and quite frankly, refuses to let go. Highlighted by island synths and bouncing steel drums, this track is a beach party in digital form. Hints of Zimmer and Monitor 66 abound, but being their first track, I think Cajoline are heading for a fantastically bright future. Enjoy!

Until next time,
