Favorite ThisAZEDIA - Calm Down

Published: July 4, 2013

London duo Azedia knows how to give you goosebumps. Without sacrificing any punch, they tone down the bass overused by their contemporaries in favor of a synth-heavy barrage of symphonic goodness. Lush melodies ricochet off pulsing drums. The elegant vocals frost the track in a cool, effervescent glow. Monstercat knows what it's doing, pegging the duo to produce a chill, graceful cut without coming off as cheesy or pretentious. "Calm Down" will help you do just that. Envelop yourself in the warmth of the poignant lyrics and settle into this one after a long day at work. Or, if you're in the States, as a prelude to a gluttonous day full of overcooked brats, warm, flat, light beer, and some thrilling pyrotechnics. Grab this one now on Beatport.
