Track of the Day: Zonderling “Zinderlong” (Spinnin Records)
Zonderling? Zinderlong? After days of stuffing your face, drinking wine, and listening to awkward family stories (and fights) it’s time to gear up for New Years Eve. What’s cool about Zonderling’s track Zinderlong (see track above) is that its great for winding up or winding down. If you’re chilling in your room, putting away all those presents, this could work; if you’re having drinks for friends while getting ready to go out for the last weekend of the year (I know, what??), then this could definitely work. This laidback, (pseudo-)clubby track (not in the fist-bumping way, but in the classic house sense) will transport you, whether your eyes are wide open or closing up. Just wait for the releases at about 3:30 and you will know what I mean.
In just a little over a week “Zinderlong” has had over 125,000 listens on Soundcloud and it is only going up from here! The track is officially out on Spinnin’ Records and is available on Beatport here.
Who is Zonderling???
Who the fuck is Zonderling, you ask? Well, you may have actually heard of them via his track “Sonderling” (I’m seeing a trend here– listen to this amazing track below), which was released in 2011 and has over 3.5 million hits on YouTube. Then, as promptly as this “trippy tech-house track” launched this DJ duo into internet-electro stardom, they pretty much disappeared and this is their first big release since then. So not much is known of Zonderling, but I find this portion of the bio most enticing:
Zonderling comes from the north of Holland and has created its own version of current dance music. Freaky sounds by a headstrong duo working on musical impulses, leading to a couple of striking releases with a character of their own, including specific Dutch track titles like ‘Pruillip’ and ‘Zonnewind’. Weird dudes? Not at all. It’s simply Zonderling, exactly what this world needs.
And that pretty much sums up Zonderling in a nutshell.
