Una "The Astronomer (John Tejada Remix)"
- Words: Elissa Stolman
- Label: Cool Jewel
Several months after the release of its Laughing Man EP in March, Los Angeles trio Una has assembled a collection of remixes of those tracks from 14 different artists. Warp veteran Nightmares on Wax, Street Jazz label boss DJ Cam, and Kompakt regular John Tejada all contributed to the digital package which drops on July 2 via Cool Jewel (the vinyl version features a slightly different tracklist and is available now). Featured here, Tejada's remix of "The Astronomer" transforms the jazzy, downtempo original production into an astral cut of future garage complete with a skittering beats, airy pads, and swells of low end buoying the obligatory pitched-down vocal sample.
