Good to jam when: Stoked about life
From the north Basque region of Spain in a city called Zarautz comes this awesome band with an attempt to change the mediocre electronic music that resonates through most club scenes today, Delorean. Remix Artist Collective (RAC) is a group of random dudes that put their personal spin on many popular songs of today, including the featured jam of today "Stay Close." For those that reminisce on the days when Napster and Limewire were legal and cringe over the thought of actually paying for music, it's your lucky day because RAC's website pretty much lets you download all of their stuff for free, including today's wavy jam. Anyways, enough factual and technical details for now, let's focus on what's cool, like this band. Delorean is worth checking out because they are finding a way to progress music in a new direction by magically combining techno-electronic beats with harmonic longing voices that anyone can hum along to and that anyone would be ever so delighted to add to their Summer 2011 Beachside Mix! Not sold? Well, they also live in Barcelona, which is my current city of residence and which happens to also give this stellar band automatic cool points in the book. I can assure you, I'll be spendin' my recent sunny days along the Mediterranean in Barceloneta jammin' mad hard to Delorean beats and keepin' the look out for these guys, and you should do the same.
