[Download] Chromatics’ ‘Just Like You’

 

Chromatics

Johnny Jewel’s amazing Chromatics have announced the release of their forthcoming new album. Titled Dear Tommy, the follow up to 2012’s dreamy Kill For Love, is due out in a month and is eagerly anticipated by just about everyone we know. Johnny has taken to SoundCloud to announce the release and give away the albums first single, Just Like You as a free download. Check it out.

Just Like You is just the first in a string of new singles. Jewel will be releasing one a week until the albums March release and he has certainly chosen a belter to kick things off with. A swirling electronic symphony blessed with sweet vocals and lush (like, really lush) synths over a smooth steady beat. It’s an intoxicating SynthPop dream with a dark undertone. We’re very much looking forward to the album.

[MP3] Chromatics reMixed by Visione

 

Chromatics

Chromatics’ classic and Drive & Taken 2 featuring epic Tick Of The Clock has been given this sweeping sharp update by Chicago producer and Chromatics’ own Visione. Tick Of The Clock is so recognisable now, you’d recognize it even if you didn’t know it from it’s gritty Italo arpeggios and spend all day wondering where you knew it from. It’s weird hearing a new version, but Visione does the business right here.

The new reworking keeps the originals haunting, hypnotic groove but injects the track with a little omph and some serious Cosmic snyths. Over a gruelling machine beat, the originals trance inducing riff plays out, with added help from a truck load of atmospheric synthetic squealing keys before launching into a soaring finale. The perfect end to the week.

[MP3] Chromatics cover New Order

Chromatics

Alongside an eclectic new mixtape from Johnny Jewel, Italian’s Do It Better have also just released this cover of Jewel’s Chromatics cover of the classic New Order track, Ceremony. The cover features on the new mixtape alongside the likes of Xeno & Oaklander, Desire and Kraftwerk.

Chromatics’ version of the tune is a slowed down, blissed out dream that gets Hooky’s bass spot-on and features Glass Candy’s Ida No adding a little guitar to the mix. Spacious, but not sparse, the track is a downtempo wave of relaxed sounds and Chromatics vocalist Ruth Radelet’s crooning out Sumner’s lyrics with a hazy tone. Perfect space-out music for dreamers, and a nice cover that remains true to the vibe of the original whist sounding completely unique.
