Who among us can resist a good full circle story? Atlanta-based, classically trained musician and producer OLAN recalls seeing KCRW faves Little Dragon perform at HARD Summer one year, and thinking to herself, “I don’t know what I have to do, but I want to do that.” 

Flash cut: OLAN is now, indeed, doing just that, with a clutch of singles and compilation tracks for revered electro label Anjunadeep under her belt, plus her debut album “Contra” unleashed to considerable acclaim earlier this year. And here’s where the circle closes: Today we’re pleased to premiere Little Dragon’s blissed out remix of “Contra’s” lead single, “Wake and Return.” With it comes precisely the energy you need to get this week started on the right foot… Better yet, dive straight in with both feet. The water is perfect.

Plenty more remixed delights await as you cool your heels in our sonic pool, including TOKiMONSTA’s textured, temperature-dropping take on Disclosure’s “Waterfall,” and Stones Throw Records stalwart Stimulator Jones taking the NEIL FRANCES’ cut “dancing” in a direction certain to permeate with primo vibes.
