[Audio] Frankmusik reMixes Ride The Universe’s ‘You And I’

 

ride-the-universe_thumb

We unleashed the new tune from Dreamwave superheroes Ride The Universe a couple of weeks ago. You And I is definitely one of the funkier and more entertaining slabs of Nu-Disco released this summer, like a rush of good times. The track has been given the reMix treatment by Mr. Frankmusik, and the result it typically quirky and typically dancefloor destroying. Check it out.

In the same vein as many of his recent reMixes, Frankmusik delivers a huge sound, stuffed full of complex patterns and musical bait & switches. Keeping the funk intact the whole time, Frankmusik infuses the track with stuttering hook and layers of buzzing synth lines. In his element with the vocal snatches, Vincent chops and pastes various elements, rearranging them in to fresh new melodies to ride his staggered dancefloor beats. A more aggressive, but perfectly complimentary, companion to the original.

[Video] Frankmusik’s ‘Map’

Frankmusik, free of the shackles of his old label, has just dropped a free EP of new tracks, the four of which really show off Vincent for the talent that he is. Sounding more comfortable with himself, Frankmusik has releases an amazing collection of ElectroPop tunes and a manifesto for himself going forward.

Here’s the video for one of those tunes, Map, which is all very woodland, but only cements the idea that Vincent is now doing it his way.

Alphabeat’s free reMix collection

Alphabeat

Danish ElectroPop champions Alphabeat’s last single Love Sea was an enormous saccharin slice of catchy Pop. Like someone shining very bright, colourful, lights in your eyes whilst spoon-feeding you cake icing. We would expect no less from Alphabeat really, it’s part of their charm. Now the six-piece have release a reMix package for the single, it contains some serious talent, and it;s all free.

So, first up Mr. Frankmusik takes a crack at the tune. The man delivers a storming Housy mix, complete with hypnotic piano and a hands-in-the-air vibe. Using just the right amount of the originals vocals, Frankmusik creates a party mood and keeps the deep bass rumbling. The Sound Of Arrows inject the track with some of their slick ElectroPop sounds making the track sound every bit as epic and majestic as one of their own. Kastra kick off with a You Got The Love arpeggio before lifting Love Sea up into a big anthemic main room House tune with all the big room House elements you’d expect, cut up vocals, stabbing synths, and sing-a-long vocals. there four other reMixes on the release, covering a range of dancefloor moods, for free it’s a total winner.

Vincent Did It

Vincent Did It. Vincent did what?, Well, Vincent did Frankmusik for a while, now he’s doing this thing that sounds like Frankmusik but isn’t. (Hopefully this means a move away from the Cherrytree bland factory)

Here’s the video for the new single, ‘So You’re Alive’, and it;’s pretty damn catchy.

Stream Erasure’s new single

erasure

Here’s your first taste of what to expect from the eagerly awaited new Erasure album. eagerly awaited not only because it is Vince and Andy’s first studio album since 2007 but also because it has been co-produced by contemporary SynthPop marmite Frankmusik.

The track is ‘When I Start To Break Down’, to be the new single, and bodes very well for the album. There’s a certain epicness to the track that you can see coming both from Andy’s solo work and, more definitely, from Frankmusik. It’s got that heartfelt, with a hint of majestic, melodic quality that Frankmusik used to be so good at before he tried to become an AutoTuned American Hip-Pop nightmare (come home Vince!). The song though, is very much an Erasure track though, but Andy’s Vocals and Vince’s writing shine through and gives up high hopes for the new record. The track also shows what a talent Frankmusik still is, he’s just fallen in with a bad musical crowd or something.

♫ Erasure – When I Start To Break It All Down (Single Version)

‘When I Start To Break It All Down’ will be the first single from the forthcoming ‘Tomorrow’s World’ album, it’s released 29th August .

Frankmusik reMixed by MNEK

Frankmusik and Far East Movement’s ‘Do It In The AM’ isn’t my favourite of Vincent’s tracks but it has really grown on me.

Throw in this big warp bass Electro-House mix from UK producer MNEK, premiered last week on Annie Mac’s show, that does some really interesting things with the original. Upping the grit on the track, MNEK drop a tight party-starting groove that is not only in your face, but leaves a surprising amount of the original arrangement intact (and you know I love it when reMixes do that!).
