[Audio] Hercules And Love Affair’s &’Working Miracles’

 

Hercules And Love Affair

Working Miracles is one of two B-sides to Hercules And Love Affair’s new single Do You Feel The Same?, released ahead of Andy Butler and crew’s forthcoming The Feast Of The Broken Heart album. The A-side is a  spacious funky Acid Disco monster, so H&LA deliver something deeper for the flipside.

After a shaky piano and sample intro, Working Miracles drop and thumping, almost Psy Trance, beat. Undulating and hypnotic, the groove builds and builds into an ecclectic and bassy House juggernaut. Taking cues from their Industrial roots and their Warehouse DNA, Working Miracles moves in both dancefloor and avant-garde circles.

Hercules And Love Affair

Deep Acid Disco is on the cards with the new a single from the latest version of Andy Butler’s Hercules And Love Affair. Do You Feel The Same? is the first new track we’ve had from them in quite a while and comes from the forthcoming album The Feast Of The Broken Heart witch again sees Andy in the studio with Consolidated’s Mark Pistel.

If there’s one thing we love, it’s when the funky and the Acidic mix, and the is exemplified perfectly on Do You Feel The Same?. Long-time collaborator Gustaph, the voice of Moonlight Matters’ amazing Come For Me, croons over a burbling 303 bassline and some serious warehouse vibes. Capturing the drama inherent in Hercules And Love Affair tracks, Do You Feel The Same? is already fast on it;s way to becoming one of our favourite tracks of the year.

[MP3] Free Johan Agebjörn/Sally Shapiro reMix album, ‘Sweetened’

 

johan-agebjorn

Never one to sit around on his arse, prolific ElectroPop producer Johan Agebjörn having already released the new Sally Shapiro album and it’s associated collection of reMixes, the man is keeping himself busy by releasing this free compilation of his reMix work, both as himself and as part of Sally Shapiro. Sweetened pulls together some pretty big names that Agebjörn has gifted with his production skills, featuring the likes of Little Boots, Jam & Spoon, Glass Candy, Lindstrøm, CFCF, Wolfram and Holy Ghost! and Hercules And Love Affair, and more.

It’s hard to pick favourites from this sweet collection, the releases here span a couple of years and showcase every side to Agebjörn’s production. From the blistering ElectroPop to the growling Italo, Johan always injects his music with an emotional energy, often mirroring the mood of the vocals, rising and falling with the sentiment of the track. Expect an album’s worth of punchy dance beats and starlight synthesizers that whirl around your head. At times the album show’s off Agebjörn deeper, groovier, more experimental side, but on the whole you’re treated to 13 tracks from one of the best ElectroPop producers in the world working today. Did we mention it was free?

Hercules And Love Affair’s ‘Release Me’

Hercules And Love Affair

Following Digalism’s stunning entry into the series, the next gang up for the honour of compiling a DJ-KICKS album is Hercules And Love Affair. Despite a relatively mediocre second album, the members of H&LA have been producing, collaborating and featuring on some of this years most amazing releases. As is the way DJ-KICKS things work, Hercules And Love Affair have a new original track in the mix, and Release Me give us the impression that the guys have  taken a lot from their various works this year and brought it back to H&LA.

Butler and Pistel really bring an early ‘90’s Pop vibe to Release Me, alongside some ecclectic synth work and retro House Piano. It’s the logical progression from both their past work and the collaboration with Moonlight Matters earlier in the year. Bringing a B-Boy beat and a hint of Electro Boogie to work with the gentle vocals creates a nice contrast, but what elevates this track to greatness is the liberal use of those all-important orchestral stabs.

Chromeo & Hercules And Love Affair

Hercules And Love Affair are next up to reMix Chromeo’s next single, ‘When The Night Falls’.

Focusing on vintage synths, B-Boy Electro & House beats and Solange Knowles vocals H&LA’s reMix provides a nice contract to the funkin’ original and the super funkin’ Breakbot reMix. There’s even an element of Chiptune as the track progresses. If you are at all a fan of Chromeo and electronic music you’re going to love this. It’s a bit of a synth geek track, but in a way with groove.


Chromeo – When The Night Falls (Hercules And Love Affair reMix)

Chromeo’s ‘When The Night Falls’ single is due to drop 25th July.
