Argonaut & Wasp is an indie dance band from Brooklyn, NY. Inspired by the sounds of the kick drum, the electric guitar, the bass, and the synthesizer, the group creates fashionable music for fashionable crowds.
Check out “Paradise” and fall in love like I did.
“Trey and I were attending lots of DJ sets at the time (which is one of our favorite evening activities). Anyways, we would show up at all of these hip Brooklyn venues and everyone would be glued to the walls, everyone just standing there – lost in a state of confusion. We decided to capitalize on this feeling, this need for a rhythm and the need for a beat. We rushed home one of these evenings – grabbed a cowbell, picked up the guitar, and got to work.” — Argonaut & Wasp
Hot off the press!!!
Check out this new remix from Belarbi.
He writes: (sic)
This one is special, tricky I would say as I’m such a fan of sbtrkt and Vampire week end.
I humbly tried to give a personal twist to their great song.
Since they released it, it seemed I had to drop everything else and only do that
I’m happy to share it fresh with you guys
Freshly out in the limelight, [Belarbi] has already received a warm welcome on social networks. His debut remix, a version of Nonono’s “Pumpin Blood”, has promptly gathered a half million plays on Soundcloud. His first original track, “Paradise” was an airy yet catchy display of his rich and diverse influences. Add a stream of well-polished productions bringing a unique touch to tracks such as Yuna’s “I Wanna Go” or Two Door Cinema Club’s “Changing Of The Seasons”. Forward-thinking label Kitsune got it right, releasing [Belarbi]’s remix “Kyllan” by BeatauCue. And Lykke Li “No Rest For the Wicked” last month.
