While I DO know about the legendary Kompakt Records, I admittedly do not know a whole lot about their artist COMA (duo Marius Bubat & Georg Conrad who apparently hail from Space, according to their bio). I DO, however, know my 80s music. And everyone knows that “Bette Davis Eyes” by Kim Carnes is one of the greatest one-hit wonders of all time. The track has certainly made some appearances on the electronic music circuit via remixes and sampling, most notably on “In Your Arms” by all-time GDD favorite Mylo.
This time around, “Bette Davis Eyes” gets a rich, hypnotic, techno pop treatment from the aforementioned COMA. The long, spacey intro builds and builds and then right around the 4:00 minute mark, that signature synth riff comes rolling in. And the result is glorious. Even more glorious: the track is being given away as a free .WAV!
There couldn’t be a better time for an over-abundance of songs filled with sun-kissed vibes for the beginning of our summer here in California. I told you in my last Waves there would be another compilation on the heels of the first, and shazam, here it is. You know the drill, grab your honey, a boom box, and get poolside. Peace and shibby!
“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”
