Local Hero: Sei A - Going Down

LOCAL HERO: Sei A - Going Down

We already reported on the massively damaging ‘You Can Bring’ EP from Sei A a couple weeks back, but having recently witnessed it work in a club, we felt it was only right to give its creator the title of ‘Local Hero’. What seems to truly resonate from a Sei A production is this visceral atmosphere which takes hold of the dancefloor, a primeval sense of complete submersion, and here on ‘Going Down’ that is completely resolute.

We can’t tell you how close this came to grabbing the top spot this week, as Miaoux Miaoux takes on avant-garde LA artist Ariel Pink and his 2010 single ‘Round & Round’. Anyone who has heard the original will appreciate what an incredible job Julian has done with this, taking the uplifting crescendo and stretching it out over 8mins of pure gold. Let’s just hope he makes it a free download.

And staying with the edits, Slow It Down continue to rule our summer with this hot-to-touch collaboration with London’s Elijah Collins. Featuring on the new Midnight Riot compilation which has already topped the charts on Juno Download, ‘I Don’t Need’ is a big, bouncy spandex-jam which is so 80’s its in danger of suffocating itself in hairspray. Prepare to work it.

Finally, we’re not entirely sure who Amstrad Billionaire are, but they’ve recently uploaded a series of tracks which are all definitely worth a listen. Pick of the bunch is this, a piano-led slice of Balearic House which floats in on Mediterranean breeze and fades out with the setting sun. Smooth beyond measure, we can see this becoming somewhat of a regular-fixture for us.
