THE DAILY GRIND: Quiet Dawn – After Sex (original mix and Sauce81 Remix)

Quiet Dawn takes left of center with this very peculiar but interesting track. Then he lets Japanese producer, Sauce81 make it even more peculiar. Just listen. (audio)


At first, I was going to just post the Sauce81 remix until I decided to dig a little bit deeper and listen to the original track, which is also good in its own right. I’ve always had a fondness for anything quirky or left of center and thankfully, both versions have those characteristics in spades. The original is a slow burner; lurching along at a slow pace with vocal percussion and what I believe sounds like some rapping their fingers on a table or a box over some dissonant, ambient synths. I can get into that but for me, the Sauce81 remix takes it to the next level.

Sauce81 takes those original’s ideas, bumps up the BPM a bit; giving it a bit of a left field disco thump and shuffle, all while adding some fun house-esque synths to complement the mix. It’s all a bit weird but I can dig it.
