Little Dragon – Ritual Union (Auxil Edition)

On the heels of their killer Blondie flip, electronic scene newcomers Auxil are back with a brand new remix that I’m super stoked on because they’ve decided to take a swing at Little Dragon’s “Ritual Union”. They twist the indie-pop gem into a driving deep house joint that I’d love to hear pumping out of some club speakers late at night…even more specifically, from an open-air club on the beach where the vibes of the dance floor and the ocean breeze swirl together into a sweet, sweet ritual union. Is there one of these in LA? I can only hope so. Anyway, back to the music!

Between their two releases, Auxil have made flips that sound like outright originals which is a massive feat. These dudes have an ear for fine-tuning music that I can seriously appreciate as someone who’s been around musicians long enough to understand the depth of their craft. It’s amazing that their take on “Ritual Union” so subtly makes its way into your ears and has your head nodding before you even realize it. I love a track with massive percussion that sounds like a subwoofer warcry, but sometimes it’s better to slowly slip away as the music unfolds.
