So, our good friend Mitch Murder produce a song for David Hasselhoff. Let that sink in a second.

It’s called True Survivor and it’s amazing and epic and utterly ridiculous.

The truly stunning video gives us an insight into how awesome Kung Fury is going to end up being. No description, Just watch,

[Audio] Crystal Castles’ ‘Frail’

 

Crystal Castles

What do Crystal Castles sound like without Alice Glass? Well, it looks like were about to find out. Really, we weren’t sure Crystal Castles was even still a thing, but the remaining member, Ethan Kath, has just uploaded a brand new tune, with vocals by someone called Edith, titled Frail. The accompanying blub feels a tad bitchy: “I wish my former vocalist the best of luck in her future endeavours. I think it can be empowering for her to be in charge of her own project. It should be rewarding for her considering she didn’t appear on Crystal Castles’ best known songs. (She’s not on “Untrust Us”. “Not In Love”, “Vanished”, “Crimewave”, “Vietnam”, “Magic Spells”, “Knights”, “Air War”, “Leni”, “Lovers Who Uncover”, “Violent Youth”, “Reckless”, “Year of Silence”, “Intimate”, “1991”, “Good Time”, “Violent Dreams”, etc.). People often gave her credit for my lyrics and that was fine, I didn’t care.”. Honestly, we didn’t know she wasn’t on so many of CC’s hits, but she was still the front-person of the band; the bands energy and face. We guess we’ll just have to see where things progress to from here.

Frail does sound sounds pretty Crystal Castles-y. I don’t know why we might have expected it to sound otherwise. The rousing and evocative rave synths are in place, alongside the pounding drums and heavily modulated vocals. It has the driving energy of the best of Crystal Castles. The beats sound a little disjointed, but that grows on you. It’s a solid Crystal Castles tune, but we can’t help feeling that Alice’s departure might have been a good point to try something different. nonetheless, it;s nice to have a new CC tune on the playlist.

[Audio] Aeroplane’s ‘Let’s Get Slow’

 

Aeroplane

Let’s Go Slow is the new single from French Nu-Disco legends Aeroplane and the voice of Stardust’s 1988 French Touch blueprint Music Sound Better With You, Benjamin Diamond. Despite a constant stream of top notch reMixes, new original tunes from Vito De Luca are few and far between these days so the news of a string of singles to be released this year is good news indeed. This one, released later this month, kicks off the party. Check it out.

So, Let’s Go Slow is one of the most playful tunes Vito has produce to date, one of the Poppiest too. Loaded with the trappings of his career in French Disco, the track also makes nods toward American dance Pop and late 80 chart hits with bubbly synth and big stabbing keys over a jubilant rhythm section. Diamond delivers a catchy refrain to give the track a theme, but the stars hear are Vito’s razor sharp riffs. Also, it’s sounds kinda’ like Lightwaves reMix of She’s The Queen’s Talk To Me, which is cool. Just sayin’.

Aeroplane’s Let’s Get Slow is released 20th April.

[Audio] Monsieur Adi’s ‘Runaway’

 

monsieur-adi

Here’s the latest tune from our favourite French renaissance man, Monsieur Adi. It’s actually been a while since we’ve heard a new original tune from Adi, but then again he’s spends his days reMixing and producing some massive starts these days so we’ll let him off. For his new song he’s raining in the high-octane, cinematic Electro for an laid back, emotional groover; Runaway.

Vocoder passion and thick heavy synths permeate every second of Runaway. The drums are a bit of a departure for Adi, verging into neo-Madeon drum territory, as the man heaps on piles of rich and emotive keys, stack deep but exquisitely mixed so each layer delivers it’s resonant punch. Add to that a heartfelt vocoder performance, like a robotic lament, and you have some powerful electronics right here.

[Audio] Leitbur’s ‘Strange In L.A.’

 

Leitbur

There a new release forthcoming from LA SynthPop dreamers Leitbur. The EP, titled, The Moment That I Knew You drops at the end of this month; ahead of which you can check out the lead track from the release. it’s a majestic SynthPop epic called Strange In L.A. a nostalgia laden ode to their home city. Sit back for the sweeping mood.

Opening with a classic SynthWave sound, the song soon elevates itself beyond retro pastiche with a war and heartfelt song and a grove that juggled powerhouse ElectroPop for B-boy beats and Sci-Fi synths. Leitbur are no stranger to soaring keys, and in this case the chorus delivers a stratospheric lead paired with catchy vocals. A song like this deserves a suitably epic finale and Leitbur deliver that in heaps. We’d love to catch this one live.
