the mood strikes

Though I actually did assemble a 2008 Year-End list, I never posted tracks or anything of the sort because of that internet hiatus that I took. But on that list was Party Lovers, the fantastic album by Damian Schwartz. Perhaps one of the only European full-lengths that really stirred something in me this past year, "In the Mood" is the album's standout track. With watery reverb through, some echoey piano stabs, excellent drum programming, a vocal signature loop that recalls "Que Belle Epoque" and some excellent old soul samples, it is a killer bit that could fit into a minimal set, a house set, or even a deeper, jazzier piece. Really an earworm, this is highly recommended!

Damian Schwartz- In the Mood

Tomorrow, slowing the roll.
