The Miami based Sluggers have brought a classic back from the dead and created a monster. The anthemic “Get Yourself High” by The Chemical Brothers has helped paved the way in electronic music today, and Sluggers pay homage in their new version. Keeping the spookiness of the original, they add a dark and techy feel with a rolling bassline and that compliments the techno driven lead and “chemical” stabs. Listen below, and be on the lookout for when the download drops!

Foamy and frothy jams for those who get bloated easily. Another installment for that epic beach day or sensual shag session. Peace and Love.
“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.”
The Chemical Brothers have recently composed the score to forthcoming Saoirse Ronan thriller Hanna. Dropping next tuesday, the 20 track record ranges from the serenely mellow ‘Hanna’s Theme’ to acid infused ‘Escape Wavefold’ and the frenetic ‘Hanna vs. Marissa’. Not every track is a thumper, but that’s got to be expected from a film soundtrack, keep your eyes and ears peeled for ’Container Park’, by far the most impressive track on the record.

Dirty dancers, this is not a performance to be missed!
