By now, the D.C. music scene knows that the nudisco duo Man & Woman are a force to be reckoned with. Comprised of DJ Provoke and Eau Claire, Man & Woman has played alongside Chris Malinchak, Tensnake, and Duke Dumont in addition to carving a niche for themselves through their bright, elevated sound that’s synonymous with catharsis.
Their first track of 2015 is a remix of Basement Jaxx’s juggernaut,Â Unicorn, off his 2014 release ‘Junto.’Â This edit is a far step away from the original which was more in the style of a 90’s throwback, but that’s not to say this takeÂ Unicorn isn’t a bonafide treat. Made up of layered pads and bells, the soundscape provided by Man & Woman is mellow, inviting, and soothes the same way a mug of hot chocolate does after a day out in the snow. Built from the idea of ebb and flow, the remix practically floats and entrances as the transient melodies are set to seduce us into shuffled feet (and maybe the hope of locking eyes with a mysterious, attractive stranger).
Poet John Keats once said, “Beauty is truth.” So if this is an indication of what we can expect from Man & Woman in 2015, this is the unabashed truth: they’re going to be a duo to keep tabs on because this edit is beautiful as hell.
