Exclusive Premiere: Stream EJ Marais’ New Summer Mix

By: Staff –

Barcelona-based artist EJ Marais is back with a brand new summer mix, which you can stream exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.

“EJ Marais SUMMER 2020 MIX – Raretés et Inédits’ is a mix I created to get over the confinement blues and welcome the summer with positive vibes,” said Marais. “It contains an unedited hidden track and some moody interludes combined with disco and drum machine gems, all wrapped in a 20 minute Soundcloud stream.” Last week, Marais announced his upcoming LP, CUTS, which will be released August 28th Via La Castanya.

Marais has released two singles ahead of the release of this mixtape. The lead single from the album, “Love.mp3 b/w Better” – was originally distributed digitally by TWIN before La Castanya gave it a physical release, attracting international attention to the name of EJ Marais. The double A side contained a pair of understated anthems to end an evening at the club, or soundtrack an afternoon lazed away.  Blessed with the rich Mediterranean aesthetic of co-producer Ekhi Lopetegi (Delorean), “Love.mp3” is a lo-fi ballad, a reserved salute to a brand new bae that could have been penned by Homeshake, whilst ‘Better’ recalls the stoned sway of a Channel Orange-era Frank Ocean: 808s, crestfallen digital vocals, an acoustic guitar loop, a touch of the otherworldly pads and samples so unmistakably Delorean.
