I first heard of this song because of Starslinger’s rad remix but I really dug the vibe of the tune so I went in search of the original. Turns out Rollerskaters is the bedroom side project of Phoenix, Arizona’s Andrew McKee who created it because he was “bored after school.” Can’t remember what I used to do after I had finished school for the day but it certainly wasn’t making hit tracks in my room. McKee has been creating solo stuff for a little while now but is mostly known for his band The Young Friends with Brant Stuns, who he met on Myspace in their freshmen year. He’s only released a few songs as a solo artist but I’m loving his new age vibe and tropical beats. Can’t wait to here more.
Check him out on myspace!
Also, here’s the rad Star Slinger remix! Saw him at Fortune Soundclub recently and he absolutely blew me away. Enjoy!
