I'm honestly completely clueless as to who or what Soft Metals is, but I'm a huge fan of local avant-dance duo The-Drum
, so I was psyched to run across their remix of Soft Metals's "Psychic Driving" on the Internet the other day. In keeping with The-Drum's style, their version is propulsive and funky in a throwbacky, Moroder-esque kind of way, but also exceedingly chilled the F out. I've recently been daydreaming about spinning an all-chill-out DJ set somewhere, but I'm guessing the crowd would complain and/or fall asleep in their seats, which isn't really what bar owners are looking for in their talent bookings.
You can download the remix by The-Drum for free, but sales of the entire Soft Metals remix album—featuring versions by VALIS, Newclear Waves, and Darkwerkz, among others—benefit the great charity Doctors Without Borders, so you should actually think about buying it.
