This week on the Sunday Sesh, we are focusing on indie electronic and instrumental vibes. As we near the end of this taxing year, we look to the future with hopeful eyes. This selection of new music is the soundtrack of the blissful melancholy that comes with faith slowly re-entering our lives. We kick things off with a hypnotizing track from Fatboy Slim and Roland Clark, before introducing you to the immensely talented producer, Omari. Then we take things to the mirrored table energy of Dave Audé’s remix of Leann Rimes and cap things off with a haunting track from Tricky and LOUISE.
Fatboy Slim – Sunset 303 (If You Believe)
Fatboy Slim just released a massive compilation album featuring tons of talent. One of the standout tracks from Back to Mine is a collaboration between Fatboy Slim himself and the masterful Roland Clark. ‘Sunset 303 (If You Believe)’ is the perfect opening track. The spacey atmosphere transitions smoothly into classic acid house synths, providing a hypnotizing background for the goose-bump inducing spoken word. If you don’t get chills to this track, you need to check your pulse.

Omari – Cloud9
South Florida’s Omari is an incredibly talented producer who has worked on some impressive underground rap projects. He just released a 21 track instrumental hip-hop album that shows off his melodic inclinations as well as his mixing and mastering skills. ‘Cloud9’ is a track that is as smooth as it is complex, taking you on a journey through your own mind and mellowing you out like the sonic soul medicine that it is.
‘Cloud9’ is just a personal favorite, but the whole album deserves a listen. Check out the whole LP and support the up and coming talent here!
Leann Rimes – But I Do Love You (Dave Audé Mix)
Dave Audé mix of the Leann Rimes classic, ‘But I Do Love You’, delivers the steady strut of late 80’s dance music with booming bass kicks and an intoxicating plucked synthesizer. At times, the instrumental sounds like something out of a Safdie brothers film. At others, the track crescendos and brings a vibe that I can only describe as Santa Cruz beach energy.
Tricky feat. LOUISE – Doorway (No More Mix)
This track from Tricky is a spaced-out, bass-heavy tune featuring the angelic yet haunting vocals of LOUISE. The beat builds on itself masterfully, delicately incorporating jazz trumpet samples and single piano keys around the massive, wobbling bassline. The song ends with a muted guitar breakdown that shifts the energy to the more ominous side of things. This is night time driving music at its best.
