Let’s close out this long and arduous Monday with a truly invigorating jam. Elusive new producer Marinsky alights on our radar out of France with a fresh and funky banger, appropriately titled Rapture. A whirlwind torrent of glamorous disco, spicy electro-funk, visceral deep house, and trendy breakbeats greets our ears as we don our sequined dancing shoes to twirl the rest of the night away to this groovalicious flight of fancy. If ZHU, C2C, Daft Punk, and Junior Senior all jammed out together, it’d probably be rapturous like Rapture. You can snag this foxy banger, such a deliciously flute fluttering, brassy trumpeting, and bass pumping affair, here.

Rapture is an appropriate name to bestow on this South London singer and songwriter’s stunning debut. The technicolor explosion of alt pop that emanates from Rapture is a fine introduction to MALORY, who’s already gearing up for the release of a debut EP named Dystopia. Epic is an understatement when it comes to this bold clattering, orchestral driven anthem, which evokes the likes of Charlotte OC and Zella Day. Lushly layered vocals, pounding tribal drums, and spellbinding folk elements permeate the sophisticated track from this must watch 22 year old artist. MALORY has already been championed by famed radio tastemakers at XFM, BBC Radio 2, and BBC London. “Can you hear the thunder, listen to the sound of rapture” is belted out with confidence on the resolute single. That thunder resonates loud and clear, and that sound of rapture grips every cell within me, launching me into an absolute state of euphoria. Dystopia arrives later this year. I can’t wait to be dazzled by more of MALORY’s cinematic splendor. Rapture can be purchased from iTunes, here.

London based Tropics, aka Chris Ward, revealed the title track off his forthcoming album Rapture, out February 17th on Innovative Leisure. Rapture is indeed rapturous with its warm, languid, meandering atmosphere. Foggy and introspective, Rapture carries an elegant, jazz like piano resplendence. The multi-instrumentalist adeptly creates a dreamy wooziness on the lush and intricate song. 

OFFICIAL VID: fiN – Rapture

January 11, 2012

Oops. Back to rock. My baaaaad. Here’s fiN’s Rapture. I’ve shared their song Artisan before, which was a very instrumental math rock track. Rapture is also very guitar heavy and progressive, however, the vocals take on a more central role. The instrumentals remind me of some experimental math rock from indie band Battles’ during verses, but then the vocals takes over on choruses. I hear a little Foo Fighters in the choruses, in fact. The video is gritty and dark to fit. 

Full A-trak remix of How Deep Is Your Love

a-trak

The A-trak remix has been floating around for a few weeks now, but the full track just showed up within the past day or so. Supposedly, the idea for the remix came from a conversation A-trak had with the late DJ Mehdi. I suppose it’s another tribute in some ways then. Definitely digging this remix.
