[Audio] Keenhouse’s ‘Argon Decibel’

 

Keenhouse

The Binary collective’s most avant-garde alumni Keenhouse is gearing up for the release of his latest long player. Titled A Future Past the album, coming early next year, continues in the Keenhouse tradition of deep synthesizer experimentalism, whist keeping things jazzy and solidly groovy. The first single from the forthcoming album is Argon Decibel; Keenhouse is about to get soundtrack-y.

A laid back, live sounding, jazz mood permeates Argon Decibel. Pairing the lush synths with brushed beats and a smooth horn section, the track evokes smokey café vibes but with an electronic Sci-Fi slant. Introduced by an imposing string sections, the track soon eases into it’s warm style, peppered with half heard vocals and looped effects. Keenhouse is thinking outside the box again.

Keenhouse’s A Future Past is released 22nd January 2015.

[Download] Cavaliers Of Fun reMixes Gwen Stefani’s ‘Baby Don’t Lie’

 

GwenStefani

Mediterranean Dreamwaver Cavaliers Of Fun is has just dropped this brand new sunshine-y reMix to warm your ears this winter. Ricco has been quite quiet for a while, but he’s chosen to remind you all of his holiday vibes with this take on Gwen Stefani’s ‘comeback’ single of earlier this year, Baby Don’t Lie.

Ricco keeps a lot of the original intact on his version, the vocals, backing vocals and lead line are all present and correct; but added to this you have both the Cavaliers Of Fun pumping Disco bass, and Vitali’s disturbing love of beach guitar. The end result is a version of the single with the groove turned up to 10, it’s not a massive departure from Stefani’s vision, but enough to make it supremely dancefloor friendly.

[Audio] Ben Macklin reMixes Deep Sound Express’ ‘After Rain’

 

deep-sound-express_thumb

Hey look! there’s a tune with features both Ben Macklin and Deep Sound Express, two artists that we’ve given a fair bit of support to in the past. Well, we say ‘support’, it’s not like we’re lending them money or anything, or helping out round the house, or comforting them in times of grief. It’s more of a waving a flag at the side-lines kinda’ support. We’re certainly not load bearing. So, here’s Mr. Macklin reMixing a track that first featured on Pole Position Recordings and Glam Jam ArtistsPole Jam Vinyl label’s début release.

Deep Sound Express’ After Rain features the vocals of Raha and is generally considered one of Pole Positions finest moments; so they’ve just released a reMix package for the track. Enter Ben Macklin. Ben serves up a smooth and soulful take on the tune. Warm and retro, the track conjures the Electro Soul of the 80s and Poolside Disco of the now and peppers it with a laid back Piano House flavour. The slickest of slick jams.

[Audio] Worship’s ‘Paradise’

 

Worship

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything from epic Swiss SynthWaver Worship; he seems to be on one release a year these days, and he’s keepings things tight in 2014 by waiting ‘til the end of the year to drop- a new release. But drop a new release he has. At the end of last week he unleashed his latest slice of Italo, Disco, Dreamwave goodness. This is Paradise.

Paradise is one of those Cosmic Disco journeys that really is a journey. Worship’s music always had an epic, cinematic quality to it and this is no different. Headed thick with lush synths and rousing chords, Paradise is part space-age floorfiller, part Sci-Fi soundtrack. Leading with a stuttering Italo bassline, the track weaves it’s audio tapestry our of sweeping pads, uplifting leads and emotional keys, paving the way for a funky little riff to intersect the track at it’s nexus. A welcome return for Worship right here.

[Audio] Starcadian’s ‘Saturdaze’ EP

 

Starcadian

So, after whetting your appetite with one hell of a mashup late last week New York electro wizard Starcadian dropped his new EP just in time for the weekend. We honestly weren’t expecting another body of work this size for a while; (for us at least) his album Sunset Blood is still fresh in our ears and despite being a year old, still gets constant play (also, writing “despite being a year old” just made us sad. Oh internet, what have you done to the shelf life of music?). The Saturdaze EP ages as somewhat of a companion piece to Sunset Blood; but whereas the album soundtracked the best in straight to video Sci-Fi thrillers, Saturdaze takes Saturday morning TV and runs with it.

And it does hit the ground running, the EP’s opener, Ultralove, is one of Starcadian’s best to date. The intro along is immense strings, synths, sax and crazy toms work the music up into a frenzy before dropping and kicking back in with a synth heavy future Disco belter. Ultralove is a journey through everything Starcadian does best, hard hitting raw Disco, Quite vocoder moments and squealing solos. This one’s got it all. It;s a tough act to follow, but the rest of the EP tries it’s hardest. Dance Or Die is the real TV theme hero here, mixing a rockin’ riff with Chiptune hooks this is your optimistic, action-packed, Cartoon intro here. Money seems to be a spiritual successor to Pompey Pirate a little, a growling, enigmatic Electro track that reminds us that Starcadian can do Dark just as well as Uplifting. Alien Victory jostles for position as the EP’s stand out track, an epic duet between ominous, creeping, synthetic tones and skyrocketing euphoric leads. There’s a whole movie that plays out in your head just to this one track; from the dark times to the hopeful future, Alien Victory will carry you there. All that excitement is followed by Entoptica, the EP’s instrumental power ballad, a soaring solo set against a steady melancholy electric groove before the release plays out on a new, up-tempo, dancefloor friendly version of previous single, and space ballad, He^rt.Kicking the track up a few BMP and dropping a kickin’ beat under the track doesn’t hurt it one bit, and reinvents it as a floorfilling anthem. As you can imagine Saturdaze comes highly recommended; we really can’t stress that enough, you need to get involved.
