Astronaut Jones launched their new project last year and just released their second single, "Game Theory" this week. The duo has been playing biweekly Thursdays at Cusbah on H Street NE, where their groovy downtempo sound works well with the bar’s South Asian lounge vibe. They create a rich and funky blend of classic analog sounds and live instrumentation with fresh electronic production.
"Game Theory" features a red-hot saxophone solo by Frank Mitchell, who also performs with Thievery Corporation and See-I. The single comes with a Latin percussion remix by D.C.'s own Empresarios and a deep dub remix by Omegaman from Sydney, Australia. Astronaut Jones brings a refreshing jazz funk sound reminiscent of the '90s acid jazz scene, yet with an updated and fresh approach.
