Straight Jam Thursday: Strange Talk – Cast Away (Plastic Plates remix) + Cosmic Kids – Freight to My Soul + Jamnights – Lesson & Fascination

by Reid Horton on October 4, 2012







Hey friends! You nearly through the week, and its only clear skies from here…

…oh…and its STRAIGHT JAM THURSDAY!

Straight Jam Thursdays on ReidsWildWorld.com

First up, we have a brand new remix of Strange Talk‘s “Cast Away” from Plastic Plates! Hot off the heels of the EXCELLENT single, “Things I Didn’t Know I Loved”, Felix has crafted yet another gem here. Space funk keys lead you across a sparsely light disco universe, riding in and out of the falsetto vocals of Strange Talk. An echo-laden breakdown leads you calmly into the head-nod inducing finale, complete with biting synth leads and glowing pads. Well played Felix, well played.

Next up, we have a new song from the LA-based funk/soul/disco group, Cosmic Kids, entitled “Freight to My Soul“! With similarities to Poolside, CK takes this track to a smooth disco paradise, where trade winds carry grooves across oceans. Expertly crafted drums and claps, allow the soft synths to take the lead, as a touch of spoken word is echoed in the background. A classy jam for discerning ears. Enjoy.

And to round out the day, we have a deep and grooving disco/house tune from Jamnights, called “Lesson & Fascination“! Based in Santiago Chile, Jamnights brings some sweet sounds to the table with this funky tune. Swirls and sampled vocal leads build you into a great disco chorus, where strings take the lead and guide you back onto the dance floor. With a deep-space-kind-of-feel, this tune can easily be enjoyed via headphones or late night on the floor. Either way, groove it out.

Until next time,
Reid.
