Kaytranada’s remix of “Waiting Game” by BANKS is the type of track that could serve as the soundtrack to all your romantic interludes. The song is mysterious & seductive. Between BANKS’ sultry sound & Kaytranada’s smooth, experimental R&B , this song feels like two beautiful strangers exchanging glances & having a moment.
And if feeling sexy weren’t incentive enough to by this song, this release is also part of a very good cause:
Waiting Game (Kaytranada Edition) will be available on the DANCE (RED) compilation.
Pre-order the DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES 2 album: itunes.com/dancered. ALL proceeds go to help fight AIDS in Africa.
Every generation is known for something. Let’s be the one that delivers an AIDS FREE GENERATION. Today and every day 700 babies are born with HIV. We can get that number close to zero. It’s not a question of can we, but will we? That’s why we have come together with (RED)to DANCE (RED), SAVE LIVES.
Join us on World AIDS Day and go to dancered.com to see all the ways you can get involved.
Our very own aRod returns with another seasonal mix – FallGaze 2013. Whether it’s warm indie/disco sounds to fit the feel of the Indian Summer or darker, sexier deep house/minimal sounds to go with the cooler, moody feel of Autumn, this mix will fit whatever vibe you’re feelin’. The track list includes originals from Nadia Ksaiba, Hot Natured, LUXRY & Daniel Avery plus remixes by Diamond Cut, Grafton Primary, GRUM, Jonas Rathsman, PIXELATED and many more. Extra special shout out goes to the artists/labels/management who helped out with a few exclusives (Kaytranada’s remix of “Perfect Form” by Cyril Hahn and Joe Goddard’s remix of “Everything You Never Had” by Breach).
LISTEN. SHARE. ENJOY.
