Here’s the next instalment in the story of Let Em Riot side project Moderns. Releasing a steady stream of tunes, these guys have already impressed with the likes of Sub UrbanandLiesand as they gear up to (hopefully) releasing something properly they have unleashed Atlantic Sudden as the latest edition to their fast growing catalogue. Prepare for some lush, emotive, SynthPop.
Moderns songs tend to be slightly colder than Let Em Riot tracks. Well, maybe not colder, but slightly less personal feeling Atlantic Sudden being an example of this. It’s waves of icy synths and densely layered vocals displaying a rich emotional tone, but a less introspective one. This is a glossy SynthPop sound in comparison to Let Em Riot’s more raw ElectroPop. Which one is better? We’ll let you decide that; we love ‘em both.
We finally got to see London Nu-DiscoPop duo Cassette Club live a month or so ago, and we weren’t disappointed (that’s the blog ‘we’, I actually mean ‘I’; no idea why I keep doing this!); right in the middle of summer they busted out a cool set of chill and soulful Dreamwavey tunes that washed over the crowd like a cool breeze. Tom and Ben have decided to unleash another set of unreleased demos, to follow theirUnreleased EP of 2012.
Unreleased 2 contains three instrumental demos and this shiny vocal track, Toy. Toy is a lush slice of retro Pop with a slick Disco twist. With a popping bassline that anyone on TOTP in the mid 80s would be proud of Cassette Club get their Italo on. As Tom belts out an impassioned vocal, Ben’s smooth groove soon sweeps into and airy Disco vibe. The whole EP is free to download, then link is below the track. Enjoy.
The bearded wizard of Nu-Disco Justin Faust is testing the release of his début full length record with a sneaky peek at the title track. The album is called Spellbound and is due out this month via the awesome Discotexas. Followers of Faust will agree that this album is very long and eagerly awaited and if this lead track is anything to go by, it’ll be worth the wait. This bodes very well.
There’s just something about the bassline to Spellbound. We can’t put our finger on it, but it worms it’s way into your brain and stays there. It’s a rich and hypnotic track that shows off Faust’s funk in full swing. A chugging, unrelenting groove rolls over effervescent purcussion, synths firing on all cylinders and providing a forward imperative for layers of bright shiny keys to flow over. The album can’t come soon enough.

Justin Faust’s Spellbound is released 19th September.
Remember how Russian ElectroPop heroes Tesla Boy’s last album, The Universe Made Of Darkness, was one of our favourite albums of 2013? Well now that amazing record is getting spiced up by all manner of reMixes in the just released The Universe Made of Darkness: Night Version. On the new album you’ll find work from he likes of Xinobi, Piorneerball and 7th Myriads. To celebrate the release the guys have dropped this reMix of Paraffin from the superb Cosmonaut Grechko.
Grechko get’s his House on in a major way. The man’s latest tunes have all been incredibly complex Chicago House jams that feel totally authentic whilst bringing the sound up to speed, and that’s what he does right here. Full of Grechko’s popping purcussion and deep, warbling bass, the track flows perfectly with Anton’s vocal and injects it with a piano hook as classic as any you’ve heard.
Here it is! The long awaited return of the finest name in Australian Deep ElectroPop; Kids At Midnight.
A singer/songwriter/producer whose reputation precedes her, Jane Elizabeth Hanley, A.K.A. Kids At Midnight, released her début EP, Let You Slide (back in 2012 via Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music label) to critical acclaim whilst simultaneously becoming the Nu-Disco scene’s voice-in-demand; featuring on Edwin Van Cleef’s massive cover of Phoenix’s Lisztomania and Ride The Universe’s A Little Better amongst many others.
Now Kids At Midnight is poised to unleash a brand new double A-side single. Two lush, emotive and rich tracks that blur the boundaries between Deep House, ElectroPop, Nu-Disco, and Indie-Electro. Unashamed and Vapours. If you like your dance music song based, epic and passionate then this release will be unmissable.
A selection of reMixes tune the tracks for every dancefloor with Holmes Price bringing a retro Boogie to Unashamed whilst So Serious (the Deep House alter ego of Phunktastike) give the track an enigmatic groove. Vapours is given a spacey Tropical Tech House workout by Daniel Högberg of Pacific!and a beach party Disco send off by LA’s Dreamwave originator Touch Tone.

Kids At Midnight’s Unashamed/Vapours is released 1st September as a Beatport Exclusive followed by a general release on 15th September.
You’d have to have been living under a rock the past couple of weeks, or maybe you just don;t write for a music blog, not to have been hammered with ‘preMixes’ if the new single from the producer of the mist blissful music in the world, Goldroom. It was actually a very interesting concept, release the stems for reMixing before anyone has heard the original and let creativity ensue, but as much as we love Josh we just hid under the aforementioned rock until the man himself dropped the original version of the track. which is now; so “hello world””
‘Till Sunrise features Australian electronic producer Mammals and was well worth the wait. I know we quite often refer to stuff as soundtracking the summer; but in real life as soon as the sun starts to shine we reach for some Goldroom tunes, and ‘Till Sunrise will be pushing it’s way toward the top of that pile. A slo-mo Disco dream that swirls hazy snyths, Topical purcussion, and the most warm and inviting of back beats, around your head as Mammals misty vocal rolls over the tune. Too chilled for Disco, to Disco for Chillwave, ‘Till Sunrise hits the sweet spot between the two. Dreamwave was always supposed to sound like this.
Stop the press. There’s a new tune from the newly solo and still pluralised Final DJs. This time Final DJs has enlisted the help of SynthWave scene staple Dana Jean Phoenix on vocal duties, and the Canadian songstress adds that little bit of nostalgic flair to an otherwise Housey tune. Check out We Are The Night Below.
Crisp and clean, We Are The Night wears it’s Nu-Disco and French Touch roots on it’s sleeve. Warm basslines and heavy filtering underpin proceedings, creating a groaning core of some lush synth stabs and chirping leads. Dana’s vocal glides over the track like silk, tying everything together nicely and giving the track the human touch. Excellent summer evening listening.
Last week we brought you Grum’s Yousef & The Angel’s Float Away, part of a brand new reMix package for the track. Now we can share with you the other exciting mix on the release; a version of the tune from Clancy. Clancy has a EP out soon on Anjunadeep and we couldn’t be happier for him, that’s an awesome label and a good fit. This reMix just has us eagerly awaiting for the EP to drop.
In contrast to Grum euphoric endeavour, Clancy gives something a little more cerebral. A deep and funky House track with an ecclectic array of synth instrumentation. The track draws you in with a bright and sparking into before grabbing hold of you with a bassline that is part speaker shaking sub, part 80s SynthPop groover; a devastating combination. With a futuristic, and quite epic, feel, Clancy’s reMix of Float Away really will take you away, all the while rooting your feet in the dancefloor.
Yousef & The Angel’s Float Away was originally released back in September last year, closely followed by a bunch of reMixes. This reMix was not one of them, but have no fear, the single is getting another release that this time will, thankfully, include this monster reworking of the track by ER fave Grum. The new release is out this week and also features a reMix from the mighty Clancy.
Grum gets razor sharp with this reMix of Float Away. Punchy bass and piercing synths dominate the track, which seems a little bit like a nexus point between his Dreamwave past and his Progressive House present. There’s a definite retro flair to the tune, but in that really clean and euphoric way the Grum always did, and the beats and bass are so tight and crisply produced. All this production clarity doesn’t for one minute loose the groove though, as Grum pairs The Angel’s ethereal vocal with an infectious bass heavy vibe.
