Cosmic Shift
Flying Lotus - Zodiac Shift (Sonnymoon Remix)

Today I bring you an experimental band from Massachusetts. Sonnymoon has been pretty low-key since they signed to LA label Plug Research. Luckily, they’ve released a fantastic remix of Flying Lotus’ hit, Zodiac Shift. If you know me, I’m a huge fan of FlyLo. As such, I only occasionally like remixes of his stuff, but this time around I was blown away.

Sonnymoon’s remix of Zodiac Shift begins with ghostly echoes and deep dots of bass. Then, singer Anna Wise chimes in with beautiful vocals. The original melody of the song comes in, only this time slowed down and made into a gentle glide. Glitchy sampling adds a chilled-out texture to the song, while Anna’s otherwordly vocals create a harmonious atmosphere. Superbly tweaked, I’d have to say this is a FlyLo remix done right, and that’s saying something coming from me. Also, check out Sonnymoon’s rework of Drake’s HOUSTOATLANTAVEGAS, performed live in the video below. I just can’t get over Anna’s voice–it has such a quiet power. I’ll be sure to report back on these two when they send more gifts out into the world.
