[Electronic Soul] Men at Work – Down Under (Chuck Norris Dub) [Thomas Jack Edit]

Down Under
Chuck Norris Dub (Thomas Jack Edit)

A few weeks ago we featured an amazing little number from Australian producer Thomas Jack, “The Final Speech”, which then proceeded to embark on a viral tear including a stay at #1 on Hype Machine . On the heels of that solid release comes an edit of Men At Work’s 80’s staple “Down Under”, and it was another cleverly worked piece of soulful electronic music fit for our Ninja palate. Although this particular song has been warped and remixed countless times, the 20 year old has made it once again unique, yet irreparably familiar. TJ doesn’t skimp on the summery vibe on his plush edit, and with the recent heat around the Western States, it syncopated charmingly with our cochlear cavities. Stream the tune above.

[Electronic Soul] Thomas Jack ft. Adrian Symes – The Final Speech

The Final Speech (Original Mix)
Thomas Jack ft. Adrian Symes

20 year old Australian wunderkind Thomas Jack has just gifted us with an electronic track sounding more mature and instrumentally textured than his age would suggest, with “The Final Speech” featuring sax player Adrian Symes. It is a melodically driven effort beginning with a laid back, and slowed up four-to-the-floor drum pattern, before a lovely piano and Symes’ subdued alto saxophone carries “The Final Speech” through a building break and vocal snippet, before shedding a layer and ratcheting up the sexiness tenfold for the second half of the composition. Bolstering “The Final Speech” are a few house and garage elements; and while the song is better as listening music than dance, there is no doubt that if this one found its way onto a floor there would no doubt be more than a few bystanders hypnotically swaying away to the beat. Thomas Jack has a sound and taste which seems like a perfect fit for the current wave of young electronic producers, and like most of them, he is giving away music for the price of… on the house. So listen above to Thomas Jack’s “The Final Speech” and grab a free download while you’re at it.
