Downtempo electronica icons Rae & Christian just released their first original material in over 10 years. The duo was a big name in the late 90’s and early 00’s in the now pretty much defunct electronica game. The lead-off track “Happy” from their new album ‘Mercury Rising’ is an infectious, poppy, slightly disco tune featuring Mark Foster of Foster the People. I heard this song over a month ago and find myself singing it randomly all the time. It just stays with you. It’s a surprising jam from the duo, but shows they are still relevant and can adapt with new sounds.
