Australian Electronic Trio Seekae Pick The 10 Most Underrated ’00s Dance Songs
The guys from Seekae know what makes a strong IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) track. Up until recently, the trio from Sydney, Australia, dealt mainly in instrumental music, meaning there were no hooks or words to distract from the seductive down-tempo electronics. The songs were sleek and cool and more than a little mysterious, and on their latest single, ‘Another,’ the group introduces vocals, proving they can craft catchy, more pop-leaning fare without straying too far from the sound that’s earned them praise from the likes of Uncut and Dazed + Confused. Seekae recently signed to Future Classics, winners of this year’s Best Independent Label prize at the Australian Independent Music Awards, and early next year, they’ll drop their third album. In advance of the release, Seekae member John Hassell made Diffuser a list of the 10 Most Underrated IDM Songs of the ’00s.
‘Any Unrequited As Well’
‘Whilst Making Other Plans’
Off Ghostly International’s first full-length release, this is a brilliant track by the artist also known as Dabrye. It took a while to sink in, but after a few listens Tadd Mullinix’s genius is clearly apparent.
