Jan Blomqvist – Big Jet Plane (Niconé remix)

This track is boss. Jan Blomqvist’s reinterpretation of  Angus & Julia Stone’s “Big Jet Plane” takes the indie classic to a whole new level. Its dreamy tech house feel is perfect for almost any situation, thanks to its infectious beat. Like dancing with nostalgia, this tune stays true to the feel of the original while emitting a whole new vibe.

She said “hello mister, please to meet ya
I wanna hold her, I wanna kiss her
She smelled of daisies, she smelled of daisies
She drive me crazy, she drive me crazy.”

Jan Blomqvist’s voice exudes a certain melancholic euphoria. Bittersweet and so real. Haunting and uplifting at the same time. Passionate yet detached. His distinct sound captures a duality that is indescribable through words. Jan Blomqvist truly recognizes the emotional component of electronic music. All of his sounds are his own. After spending 7 years as a singer, songwriter, and bassist of a dark and melodic grunge rock band, he chose to move to Berlin and work solo as a producer. His sound has an unique organic quality to it, and he is definitely an artist to take note of for the future.

Angus & Julia Stone – Big Jet Plane (Chris Carter Cover)

Monday is full of surprises isn’t it!? Not always good surprises but today we have an EMPT exclusive for you from the one and only Chris Carter who is always bringing us jams, never a disappointment!  I think that we have all heard Angus & Julia’s track Big Jet Plane a time or two or more,  the Australian brother and sister following in the footsteps of their parent who were a folk duo before these two were born. This track is kind of a sad story about dreaming about a world that is much bigger then the sludge you might be living in at that moment.  I have always liked this track and I find myself always dreaming bigger when I listen to it.

I think Chris brings a bang to this track that gives it a feel like you are in the movie Tron, speeding down the lighted track towards whatever fantasy is driving you. I love that nothing gets taken away from this track, the string instruments and even the sad but determined feeling in the vocals, but what Chris gives it is more power and a more fast paced determination, creating less of a sadness. Chris speeds this jam up with some great effects and some kick that will surely have you wanting to leave work, jump in your car, pretend its Friday and speed toward whatever dream or fantasy is in your head right now.

Start up your week right and press play, don’t be afraid to turn this Jam up where ever you are, just blame us, enjoy!
