Cassette Club’s ‘Flash’ reMixes

cassette club

London ElectroPop duo’s Cassette Club recent Flash single, out now on Modal, is still riding high on various music outlets sales charts. The guys have been in a giving mood recently, with their free EP of unreleased material, and that giving mood continues with two brand new reMixes of Flash for the noting-at-all-really- price of £1.

First up to have their way with Flash is LA based Dreamwave duo D.A.R.E. whose Disco influended sunshine ElectroPop melds perfectly into Cassette Clubs’ sound turning Flash into a laid back beach-party jam that has a gentle melody that washed the track like waves lapping at your toes. But D.A.R.E.’s smooth LA Funk influenced groove is only one half of this package. On the flip-side the amazingly named The Found New Hardware Wizard bring an almost late 90s Trance vibe to the table. Their reMix of Flash is full-on hands-in-the-air stuff and whilst the big Trance leads sound a little dated the tracks huge lead line more than makes up for it. We’re so glad that Cassette Club seem to be on a roll these days. Bring on the CC juggernaut!

Cinnamon Chasers’ ‘Dreams & Machines’ album

Cinnamon Chasers

To those in the know, those who really follow Dreamwave, or Nu-Disco, or SynthWave, or whatever we are calling it this month, London’s Cinnamon Chasers has long been a name associated with some of the best synth music around. After he released his amazing début A Million Miles From Home in 2009 he came to most people attention with the massive Luv Deluxe (alongside a slick video from Francis Pollara who went on to direct Russ Chimes’ Midnight Club trilogy). Luv Deluxe was huge, and set the stage for Cinnamon Chasers second album, Science, which cemented Russ Davies reputation for emotional and beautiful synth music with all the groove of Nu-Disco and all the emotional resonance of Jean Michel-Jarre or Vangelis.

So here we are as Cinnamon Chasers is gearing up for the release of his third full length record later this month. Dreams & Machines its the logical next step for CC, it’s got that spacey, cosmic Disco feel alongside the blissful Balearic keys that so encapsulate Cinnamon Chasers sound, but here there’s an underlying current of early 90s House, a warehouse Rave feeling that pushed Davies’ music one step further. The album kicks off with the title track (which we heard a couple of months ago), and Dreams & Machines sums it, and the whole release, up nicely. The meeting of pounding Disco beats and hazy synths & vocoded vocals leys the groundwork for the rest of the record. As we go into Watch The World Burn we start to pick up on some of those House influences with a stabbing organ line set against the warping galactic synths. Throughout the album the tracks maintain that perfect balance of infectious dancefloor grooves and transcendent smokey synths. highlights, for us, have to include the 21st century BladeRunner Italo-Electro of Hyperwaves, Flash Gun’s introspective Vocoder-Pop and Retrocop, which consummately appeals to our love of Italo and B-Boy Electro, it’s an instant Boogie classic with a Piano House twist. Dreams & Machines is yet another almost flawless release from Cinnamon Chasers, the textbook album for lovers of either retro Disco music or synthesizer tunes in general. Not many capture the emotionality of electronic music without sacrificing and of it;s dancefloor dive, but Cinnamon Chasers has done it again.

Goldroom reMixed by Final DJs


LA smoothmeister Goldroom’s single before his last single, the Chella featuring Fifteen, was a reMixers dream. Chella’s nostalgic, passionate vocal is like a gift to a talented producer. So, unaspiringly the track has been reMixed by everyone under the sun. Is there room for one more? Well, there is if it is Germany’s Final DJs taking you on a slow-mo SynthWave oddessy. Eight minutes of synth bliss to follow.

Yes, we said eight minutes! Final DJs reMix is a epic tune that reins in the tempo compared to their usual output allowing the song to breathe. Pinned on an head nodding digital slap bassline, the track takes it’s great length to evolve throughout.  Starting off with a relaxed beach vibe, Final DJs slowly add more and more elements associated with their traditional SynthWave tunes, playing off and around that Tropical Disco vibe to create something greater than the sum of tis parts. Just let yourself sink into the groove.

Goldroom’s EP is out now.

Chordashian reMixes Touch Tone

We knew it was only a matter of time before we started to hear some reMixes of Dreamwave Original Gangster Touch Tone awesome Make Believe. Make Believe is Touch Tone’s second single under this new moniker and both his track have been in demand for reMixers, once you’ve heard his big, anthemic, DiscoPop you’ll understand why. So, stepping up this time is a duo who have been around for a while, but recently joined the Binary fold, Chordashian.

The Brooklyn duo whip up a nice mix of beach Disco and piano House for their taken on the tune. Alex from LexiconDon’s vocals sound comfortable amidst the stuttering snares and late night House vibe. Chordashian have managed to deliver a reMix that is both extremely dancefloor friendly, but quite musically interesting too, and retaining all the the originals soul.

Octo Octa reMixes Pelifics and Electric Youth


Undoubtedly, one of the released of the of the summer was the first of Swedish SynthWaver Pelifics’ dual EPs. And on that release one of the highlights was his collaboration with Canadian Dreamwave heroes Electric Youth, Wish It Could Last. So well received was the track that Brilliantine are going ahead and releasing it as a single with a host of reMix talent contributing to the package.

Here we have Brooklyn synth head Octo Octa’s take on the track. Loaded with sparkling synths and waves of reverb soaked vocals, the reMix takes the tune into borderline Chillwave territory. an intricate and delicate electronic dance track that morphs Bronwyn’s vocals into something half-heard and dreamlike. this reMixes companions on the EP come from Marius Våreid, Poindexter and Sweet Track. Definitely looking forward to this one.

Goldroom reMixes Atlas Genius

Atlas Genius

Australian Indie-Rockers Atlas Genius came to our attention earlier this year when their Trojans single boated some sweet reMixes from Lenno and Fred Falke. Well these boys are still on their continuing mission to prove to the world they really know how to pick the best reMix talent, as their new single is given a blissful workout by Mr. Josh Legg, doing his Goldroom thing and bringing sunshine to everyone in the world.

The new single, Back Seat, is given a lush summertime gloss at Goldroom’s hands. Using bell-like electric piano against a more sharp House piano riff leads to an almost steel drum effect in the track, a breezy beach groove that keeps the Yacht feel of Goldroom’s tunes but ups the tempo a little for a track that would work perfectly for peak time at a  pool party. Washed with feel good vibes Goldroom layers the track with numerous complex elements that build and build toward the track’s finale, which leaves you with a haunting melody ringing in your ears.

Goldroom is heading out to the South Pacific next month, you can catch him here:

Oliver X Aeroplane


Well, it’s finally here. The long awaited reMix of Aeroplane’s We Can’t Fly, by LA Oliver duo Oliver. the fact that they’ve waited so long to release this much sought after track, even if they were saving it for Eskimo Records’ Eskimonde compilation, is quite bizarre, and probably harmed the track in terms of visibility. It’s easily worth the wait, but a bit disappointing that what could have been one of the tunes of the summer (summer 2010 that is) has been kinda’ wasted.

But, like we said, it was worth the wait. Thanks in majority to Oliver. The duo of Oliver ‘Oligee’ Goldstein and Vaughn ‘U-Tern’ Oliver have always been at the top of their game. Even two years ago they were producing slicker Dreamwave tinged Disco tunes than almost everybody else, and this reMix just proves it. It revolves around the vocals and this huge Funk synth riff that you just can’t help but nod your head too. It’s pure good times Disco with their trademark relaxing LA vibe. It’s a majestic track, that’s practically a dancefloor religious experience. Oh, and a little cowbell never hurt anyone.

♫ Aeroplane – We Can’t Fly (Oliver reMix)

Oliver’s reMix of Aeroplane’s We Can’t Fly will feature on Eskimo Records’ tenth anniversary box-set, Eskimonde – A Decade Of Eskimo Recordings, which drops 31st October.
