[Music Video] SLINGER – Caribou Sundays

SLINGER
CARIBOU SUNDAYS

Ready to get weird? We are. So was SLINGER when he decided to make “Caribou Sundays,” a creation that is one hell of a musical drug. Just ask the music video that was created for it. We don’t even need to talk about what craziness goes on in the comedic animation. You’ll just have to watch and see how a chemical-heavy drink leads to a battle for a girl between a hunky jet pilot and an average Joe on a… bird with his grandma? Yea.

The greatest thing is that when you hear “Caribou Sundays” it’s almost too appropriate for the music video. It’s a wild ride of supercharged disco house. This track is all fun all the time, and it’s one that can really pick your spirits up quickly. SLINGER’s gearing up for a big summer with this jam. Be on the lookout for more solid records that are on their way from this mysterious act.

[House/Disko] Jess Glynne – Right Here (Slinger Remix)

Jess Glynne
Right Here (Slinger Remix)

Once again, enigmatic groove purveyor Slinger drops another stellar remix; this time for Jess Glynne‘s powerplay pop tune “Right Here”. Having already taken on remixes for Michael Jackson, Prince and Pharrell; it is Slinger’s dancey instrumentation paired with an excellent female vocal which has worked the best for our ears thus far. Glynne’s angelic refrain paints itself around Slinger’s composition wonderfully, sounding as if it was plucked right out of the 80’s nu-wave era. Rather than the past few high energy nu-disko remixes though, Slinger’s remix of “Right Here” is shaped around a much more classic house and garage structure crafted with the same exerted musicianship we’ve come to fall for. His hi-hats shuffle and pop on a different level this time around and the tune’s kick-drum carries a bit less punch but rather a more hollow pounding thud; producing a darker but utterly danceable atmosphere.¬† Stream this one above for a perfect hump-day pick me up, and we’ll keep digging up more dirt on this cryptic producer for you ninjas.

[Nu-Disco] Pharrell ft. Justin Timberlake – Brand New (Slinger Remix)

Pharrell
Brand New (Slinger Remix)

There is something almost symbiotic about the relationship between disco dance vibes and Mondays. One pulls its listener into visions of happy, sunshine soaked dance floors while the other is slightly more bleak in its undertone, pulling your psyche into a paradoxical direction altogether. Yin and Yang. Sweet and salty. Balance. Which, not to wax philosophically for much longer, is why we love to pair glitzy club tunes with the most dreaded day of the week. Today, the mysterious Slinger popped up with a very driven and elegant slice of disco induced house rhythms that commanded the undivided attention of our cochlear cavities from its onset. Remixing two of the most influential artists of our time can be an arduous task, but Slinger’s slinky kicks and pointed nu-disco percussion paired with the unmistakable and altogether dreamy vocal reverberations of Pharrell and Justin Timberlake has resulted in quite the hooky dance tune in the form of a syrupy Summer nu-disco remix. The vibe painted onto “Brand New” by Slinger is one of high energy poolside day parties, which I think we could all be yearning for right about now. Slinger is most certainly¬†an act to keep your ears tuned into, and you can bet that ours will be too. Check it out above.
