Shoulda Known Better (Bear Mountain Remix)
Let’s face it. There are not too many positives to Monday mornings. You’re probably worn out from the weekend, and the thought of digging in for an eight hour work day is giving you the chills. We do have some good news for you though. With Monday comes new music and with new music comes a little ray of sunshine for the start of your week.
LA-based Steffaloo (Steph Thompson) recently released the second single from her collaborative electronic album Heart Beats.Teaming up with Windy City native Different Sleep, they dialed in a dreamy pop song that slowly drifts through layered atmospheric elements, and calming percussion.
With the minimalist sound of “Shoulda Known Better,” we were anxiously awaiting a few remixers to pull out some elements and create something that is both complimentary to the original and something entirely unique. Enter Bear Mountain, who hail from one of this writer’s favorite cities in the world, Vancouver. You’re probably familiar with this four piece from their blogosphere smash hit, “Congo.” Taking a departure from their worldly sound that we all fell in love with on that release, they’ve dialed up a sultry dance tune complete heavy deep house elements, chopped up vocal samples and a pronounced bassline.
