[Audio] Louis La Roché reMixes Public Service Broadcasting’s ‘Go!’

 

public-service-broadcasting

Released last week was the new single from one of our favourite live acts (even if we’re slightly less keen on record) around Public Service Broadcasting. Taken from their recently released The Race For Space album the single, Go!, features this stormingly retro reMix from the Disco master Louis La Roché. Eschewing his usual, more vintage Disco, flavour for some high-octane Italo and SynthWave; Louis takes us on frantic, funky ride. Strap in.

Rapid fire, nostalgic, goodness; La Roché’s reMix of Go! never let’s put with it’s intertwining arpeggios, rocking leads and a relentless 80s beat. Taking many cues from both mid 80s elector and the early SynthWave scene Louis takes the best of both worlds and mixes them up into an emotional, speedy, tune that is produced to perfection.

[Audio] GotSome reMix Róisín Murphy’s ‘Exploitation’

 

roisin-murphy

Exploitation, the first single from Hairless Toys, the about–to-be released new album from Avant-DiscoPop queen Róisín Murphy has been given the bass heavy floorfiller treatment from Bristol’s finest GotSome. The reMix rubs impressive shoulders with work from the likes of DJ Sneak and Falco Benz on the single and more than makes it’s mark by drawing you into it’s hypnotic groove. Check it out below.

Pulsating robo-bass and a jump up beat drive this juggernaut of a track. Murphy’s vocals are the prefect counter for this throbbing and woozy House tune; her soft tones curling across the high-octane machine groove like smoke. GotSome serve up a symphony of tough rhythms, cowbell and loose keys; punctuated by those demonic synth growls. Strobe light stuff, GotSome are on a roll.

Róisín Murphy’s Hairless Toys is out 11th May.

[Audio] Anoraak’s ‘Odds Are Good’

 

anoraak

Not only is there a new tune in the offing from French Dreamwave legends Anoraak, but it’s released by Eskimo Recordings. That seems like a match made in heaven. Old School members of the Valerie crew, Anoraak have pride of place on Eskimo’s new addition to their colour coded compilation series, The Orange Collection. Hopefully this means there more new material from Anoraak on the horizon. Check out Odds Are Good.

Anoraak main-man Frédéric Rivière oozes his way through the track with a smokey grace. Haunting vocals and easy nostalgic synths trickle over four minutes of dreamy SynthPop. When the growling, moody bass meets the pin-prick arpeggios, hazy magic happens. This is the kind of classic Anoraak tune that you can just sink into. Let the music envelop you.

[Download] Du Tonc reMix Pixies ‘Monkey Gone To Heaven’

 

The PIXIES

After premièring it on their recent Music To Show Aliens When They Land On Earth mixtape, Du Tonc (the globe trotting team-up of Matt Van Schie and MiGHty mOUse) have unleashed their the surprise tune from that mix. A reMix of Pixies late 80s/early 90s Indie club staple; Monkeys Gone To Heaven. As a prelude to their forthcoming new single, released later this month, this reMix is bound to keep you going for a while.

Effortlessly blending a bit of Indie nostalgia (if you like that sort of thing) with their magical Tropical Disco sound, Du Tonc strip down most of the original, keeping a few grooves and vocal snatches, but manage to hold onto Monkeys Gone To Heaven‘s feel with Matt Van Schie’s trademark Disco dream basslines and the waves of lush synths and wicked little licks we expect from these two. It’s a track the you can’t help but smile about, particularly if you’re familiar with the original. Summer goodness right here.

[Audio] Curxes’ ‘What You Want’

 

curxes

The time is almost upon us for the long awaited release of the début long player from our favourite Brightonian/Portsmouthoinian(?) noiseniks Curxes. Their glorious music lies at the nexus point between ElectroPop, Industrial, Post-Punk and Dance music. Their songs symphonies that manage to be at once abrasive and catchy, unsettling and dancefloor friendly. They have also expanded from a duo to a trio with the inclusion of drummer Camille joining Roberta and Macaulay. Their album, titled Verxes, is out this week, and you can check out the track What You Want right now.

Kicking off with hammerfall machine beats, What You Want soon warms you up with Teutonic synth bass and distorted kicks underpinning a beautiful cacophony of rich pads and an unexpectedly euphoric dancefloor friendly hook. Roberta belts out a truly rapturous performance, bring both the post-punk growl and the epic screaming into play. As our latest taste of the album What You Want bodes particularly well. We’re looking forward to getting our hands on this one.

[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.
