[MP3 + REMIX] Tune In Crew – Don’t Gogo (Original Mix)

Here at The Burning Ear we’ve been supporting Tune In Crew and their remixes for sometime, so I’m always looking forward to their tracks in my inbox.  Then, suddenly my life improved upon reading their last email…  This email had something special- attached was a track entitled “Don’t Gogo”.  This is what I’d like to call Wonka Factory music.  As if they went to the Wonka factory and experimented with Willy himself.  The creations were beautiful ear candy… with everything new, fresh and exciting in electronic music today.

Here is what Tune In Crew had to say:

“Having produced mostly Remixes this year, we’ve come up with this fully original song, continuing to explore the mix of electronic and more “organic” sounds and feel, which is central to our approach. Our aim was to build a strong smooth atmosphere, different from what we had created before, while keeping our ongoing main focus: sharing joyful energy, good mood and “sunny” feeling!”

These are the one’s I loved the most this past year. You?
