♫♪  Warm Thighs - “Cold Legs”

Astro Nautico, the label responsible for putting out solid releases by howse, Time Wharp, Kuhn, Obey City, and Paul Jones, recently dropped Atlantics: Vol. 2, a beastly (and free) 41-track compilation of bass-heavy dance tracks, suffocated hip-hop, and ethereal bathdub constructions. Each morning this week, I’ll pick one of my favorite tracks, so you can start your day off astronautically.

Warm Thighs, formerly known as _lip, is a Brighton beat maker. His tracks might sound smooth at first, but listen closer and you’ll hear the true beauty hiding just beneath the surface: the cut-up beat-displacing, the pitch-fucking, the overlapping sampling, the sound quality extremity, the jerky looping. His aesthetic makes “Cold Legs” a clear standout on a compilation of standouts, and if you click on this link, you’ll be treated to a roundup of several Warm Thighs tapes, including the “unofficial” Warm Thighs 3 tape from this year. Seriously, you need Warm Thighs in your body.
