The first wave came on somber and slow hardly even reaching the sand. We weren’t afraid then even though the sky was starting to grow dark with grey clouds. We had all headed down to the beach to relax and listen to music playing just loud enough to hear over the sounds of the water. John had gone out on his board and was waiting for something worth cutting into. The second wave was a little larger and almost crashed into the spot were we had made our fire and set up the boombox. Trey was roasting a marshmallow and I was heading over to the cooler to grab another beer when we heard the thunder. The third wave was the one that we would always remember. John turned fast and started to make his way up onto his feet before the wave grew huge and he disappeared inside of it. That third wave left us with both a dead fire and a snubbed out friend.
I can’t say enough good things about TEEEL’s remixes. He chooses both a nicely varied group of artists to apply his sounds to and each of his remixes whether it be for Com Truise, Toro Y Moi, or Jenson Sportag which I posted about here have always turned the original pieces into something fresh and different. His latest challenge was taking on the relaxed sounds of one of my recent favorite artists Work Drugs and their song Third Wave. TEEEL amps up every element of the original turning that laid back hazy dream pop song into a ready for the party four on the floor get down number. Thumping bass and a hard snapping snare ride side by side with that solid vocal from the original track while original synth work transforms the entire sound of the original. Give it a listen here then head over to the TEEEL Soundcloud for a free download and an introduction to this great producer and a bevy of his work.
