[Audio] Goldroom’s ‘Embrace’…again.

 

Goldroom

Oh I don’t know what’s going on anymore. The man Goldroom’s Embrace, with Ariela Jacobs on vocals was one of our top tracks of 2013, and now the track is back, Jack. This time around Embrace features the vocals of original co-songwriter George Maple, and is the lead track on Goldroom’s freshly released new EP; It’s Like You Never Went Away (which has also got the Chela featuring stunner Fifteen on again). As we’re just pulling into Summer (fingers crossed!) it seems like the prefect time to dust off the old Embrace and give it another spin.

Like a fine wine Embrace seems to have got better with age. And more alcoholic; in the sense that everything feels like it’s been honed and refined and made, for want of a better word, richer. The new production sheen and slight tweak of arrangement seem to make the track more focused with Maples vocals a hair’s breadth more soulful. Other than that it’s nice to have a track that ruled our summer two years ago return to the top of the playlist pile.

[Audio] Colleagues’ ‘Talk It Out’

 

colleagues

We’re a week or so away from the release of Swedish ElectroPop outfit Colleagues forthcoming EP; Visits. We’ve already had a gander at a couple of the tracks from the release; Tears back in march followed by Somewhere early last month. Both of which have been floating our boat. Now, in the final furlong before their début release, we can take a listen to another glorious slice of chill Pop from Visits; Talk It Out.

Were treated to more of the same dreamy SynthPop with this one. A euphoric track, Talk It Out comes filled to the brim with lush synths and energetic beats. Another heartfelt and passionate vocal performance flow over a tumbling and kinetic synthesizer symphony, resulting in a massively anthemic powerhouse. A future live favourite.

Colleagues’ Visits EP is out 18th May.

[Download] Goldroom covers Fleet Foxes’ ‘Mykonos’

 

Goldroom

Well, he’s been teasing it all week and now it’s here. The captain of the Chilled disco ship, Mr. Goldroom has unleashed his cover version of Indie outfit Fleet Foxes’ 2009 single, Mykonos. It’s Josh’s favourite tune from Fleet Foxes so not only does he perform a rare cover, but has also chose to sing on the track himself, something we’ve not heard much from since the his NightWaves days. Check it out below, it’s an absolutely free download, ‘cos Goldroom loves you.

Goldroom meshes some sweet nautical Disco vibes with a cheeky Indie vibe on this one. Driven by a pumping bassline, Josh’s cover of Mykonos threads lush pads, synthetic snares and big synth sweeps trough a tapestry of wicked little licks and a dreamy paradise atmosphere. His vocals do the track justice, and you can tell he’s having fun with the track. Top-down sunshine feels from this one.

[Audio] Colleagues’ ‘Somewhere’

 

Colleagues

We hope you all had an awesome long bank holiday weekend, but now it’s time to get back to work, back to the grind; time to face your colleagues once more. Although some colleagues can be a chore to deal with, thankfully some colleagues are pretty chill. Our Swedish Colleagues are of the chill variety; brightening up our workday with their sweet variety of dreamy ScandiPop. They are about to release a brand new EP, Visits, in May; here’s the first cut; Somewhere.

Somewhere is a skippy five minutes of tundra electronics and distant vocals. From the get-go, Colleagues serve up a symphony of machine percussion and piercing, frigid synths tempered with spacious, passionate vocals. A roomy and inviting SynthPop excursion with a sweet DreamPop feel, you should really consider letting Somewhere carry you away somewhere.

[Audio] Ambassadeurs’ ‘Can’t You See?’

 

Ambassadeurs

Up and coming British producer Mark Dobson, A.K.A. Ambassadeurs, started his adventure in electronic music production with OctaMED on the Amiga; this immediately endears him to us as we are old school MED fans. Fast forward to the present day and he’s been slowly but surely making a name for himself with a succession of well received reMixes and steady touring. He’s just released his new EP, Can’t You See?, as a Beatport exclusive and we can give the title track a listen right now.

Can’t You See? neatly bridges the gap between dreamy Chillwave atmospherics and bassy, Future R&B styled UK Deep House. Ambassadeurs lays on waves of lush Synths and haunting samples over a shuffling beat. For such a spacious track, Can’t You See? is pretty upbeat as Ambassadeurs stabs and a twisting lead line into a frenzy as the song progresses. There’s even a little Dub in the mix too. A complex and intricately crafted epic.

[Audio] Cuushe’s ‘Tie’

 

Cuushe

Tokyo’s Cuushe has joined the ever expanding roster of one of the labels we respect the most, Cascine. Not that our respect counts for much, but if we were to hold up an example of an independent label doing it right it would be Cascine. For her latest EP, Cuushe is combining the mighty forces of Cascine and Japanese label flau to release Night Lines, a four track “noir storybook” out in April on digital and limited edition 10” vinyl. Check out the records first track, Tie.

Cuushe serves up a sumptuous and beautiful swirling synthetic soundscape. It’s an unusual mix of modern, shoegaze, electronics, and oddly nostalgic arrangement. The drums spin and roll layered over with waves of smokey pads and pin-prick lead arpeggios. It’s an otherworldly soundtrack to Cuushe’s 80s-tinged ethereal vocals. intoxicating stuff.

♫ Cuushe – Tie

Cuushe’s  Night Lines EP is released 7th April.

[Audio] Falcone’s ‘Ghosts’

 

Falcone

Falcone, the artist formally known as Aaron Alexis, is certainly working his way through the Brooklyn production roster. If we’re honest we’d like to see him going back to producing his own material, we really dug the old Aaron Alexis tracks, they had a consistent sonic style; one of warmth and soul. Anyway, this new one, Ghosts, was mixed by AIMES, who throws off his recent Nu-Disco dominance for some of his old school Chillwave flavour.

And very Chillwave Ghosts is too. Reverb drenched vocals swirl about the track as cacophonous beats and waves and waves of lush pads swell and fall from the speakers. It’s actually kinda’ Shoegaze-y, a wall of melodic sound partnered with a cavernous voice. Electronic Shoegaze with soul, that’s Ghosts. Brand new genre?
