[Audio] ATTAR!’s ‘Love’

 

attar

Out next month is the first various artists compilation EP from Clair De Lune Records. This Belgian label hits the ground running with it’s inaugural release featuring work from Leach & Lezizmo, Lumoon & Rob!n and this luxurious tune from one of our favorite deep and dark producers, ATTAR!. ATTAR! weaves Deep House, Disco and EBM through his tunes and this new one, Love, displays all three with a silky finish.

Love serves up some classic House sounds; and then drags them to a mysterious, enigmatic, Sci-Fi space with haunting sounds reminiscent of early Detroit Techno. Amidst all these sweeping futuristic tones and tension building synth strings ATTAR! keeps things from getting to lost in the darkness of space with an infectious House groove. Deeper than Deep House, Love is a House oubliette, one in you’ll never get out.

♫ ATTAR! – Love

Clair De Lune’s Various Friends EP is released 13th March.

mighty-mouse

True to his word, Disco don MiGHty mOUse has released another of his personal crate weapons to you lucky people. The man is at the top of his game, the game of being a Disco DJ, so when he creates a tune specifically designed to rock his dancefloors you know it;s going to do the job right. No fluff, no padding, this one is a dancefloor aimed musical cruse missile. The kind of monster tune you’ll find him dropping on any of his forthcoming gigs.

Wunder is one of those track, when you’re on the dancefloor, that you just sink into. You let it take control and you just loose yourself in. That chord progression, played on rumbling bass synth, is like a wave of vibes that carries you away. The tune is seasoned with an hypnotic, almost Dubby, piano hook and an array of Sci-Fi sounds flowing over jaunty purcussion. MiGHty mOUse isn’t mucking around here; pure dancefloor exuberance.

[Audio] Cosmic Angst’s ‘Mytheme I-IV’

 

cosmic angst

London Italo/SpaceSynth producer Chris Gilbert is taking a break from filling our ears with epic synth soundscapes as Mild Peril for a while to fill our ears with epic synth soundscapes as Cosmic Angst. He’s been drip feeding psychedelic synthesizer jams as Cosmic Angst for a while now, the latest of these being the just released Imbolc EP. The EP is made up for four songs Mytheme I-IV, which are actually one seventeen minute opus. So sit back, headphones on, and sink into the world of Cosmic Angst.

Taking the listener through soundtrack moods, Industrial percussive moments and soaring crescendos Mytheme I-IV is an immersive experience. Throughout the four movements hints of Jarre can be found amongst the SpaceSynth warbling. For a seven minute musical journey Mytheme I-IV is amazingly tight, each section flowing into the next seamlessly with it’s underlying themes providing stability to the audio narrative. Reviewing either Mild Peril or Cosmic Angst’s electro odysseys sometimes feels more like reviewing a movie, as there’s definite plot or character moments that unmistakable inform the listen of what’s supposed to be going on as the story unfolds in the imagination, played out by burbling apreggios and stratospheric solos. Without wanting to drop any spoilers, it’s fair to say if you love synths you will love this

The UK’s Disco powerhouse MiGHty mOUse has a whole bunch of gigs coming up, including a six house set at XOYO later this month; and what does any DJ worth their salt do when there’s gigs coming up? They get reMixing. The object of the mOUse’s is a tine that takes us right back. Family Stand’s Ghetto Heaven. Those beautiful hi-hats are gone, but an Italo-esque bouncy synth injection more than makes up for it.

MiGHty mOUse’s brings it pretty full-on with this radical workout. I think the man is playing things down when it;s referred to as an edit, this is a full blown reMix as he whips those instantly recognisable vocals into contemporary dancefloor shape with sweeping synths, an infectious rubbery bassline and a rock solid groove. Maybe it’s just ‘cos we’re listening to this one with our headphones turned right up, but this one seems to envelops you, and you can’t help but move to it. Silky smooth, but tough with it, another floorfiller from the mOUse

[Video] Giorgio Moroder & Kylie Minogue’s ‘Right Here, Right Now’

 

Giorgio Moroder   Right Here  Right Now ft. Kylie Minogue   YouTube

Here’s the video for Giorgio Moroder and Kylie Minogue’s Right Here, Right Now. This first track we’ve heard from Moroder’s comeback album that has given us hope for a return to form.

Daniel Börjesson directs the high energy clip; which is glossy and slick and everything you’d expect. Kylie being effortlessly glamorous and Giorgio, um, on the decks.

Giorgio Moroder’s Right Here, Right Now is out now.

kylie-minogue-right-here-right-now-2

So, we weren’t particularly enamoured with Italo Disco legend Giorgio Moroder’s ‘comeback’ single, 74 Is The New 24, it seemed to us to be a bit pedestrian. Modern dance music made by someone who had just discovered it, all over compressed kicks and stuff. That said, we were still eager to hear his new album, hoping some of it channels the shiny analog Disco we love Moroder for, and particularly the collaborations with Charli XCX and Kylie Minogue. Well look what happened over the weekend, the Kylie track leaked, and it’s amazing.

Right Here, Right Now is shimmering synthetic DiscoPop created by the original innovator. It seems some of Moroder’s time with Daft Punk rubbed off on him as the track occasionally shows hints of Random Access Memories, but with more of an electronic Pop sheen. This is big vintage Disco with contemporary Pop production, utterly infectious. Kylie sounds as sweet as ever as the track strikes exactly the balance of new and old we were anticipating from the album. Right Here, Right Now makes up for Moroder’s last couple of single attempts a hundred times and with a video rumoured to have been shot it looks likely this will be a single.

[Audio] Mister Salo’s ‘Disco Mamba’

 

Mister Salo

Here we go with the latest release from the non-stop juggernaut that is Brixton’s Nude Disco label. This one comes from Italian House producer Mister Salo who was snapped up by the London crew just two days after sending them his demo. Hailing from Torino, Mister Salo A.K.A. Salonia Gianluca has had a sting of low-key releases over the past couple of years; maybe this new one, Disco Mamba, will be his breakthrough.

Disco Mamba is an extremely fun concoction; a melting pot of Latin flavours and vintage Disco stylings and a classic early 90s House groove. Add in some Italo keys and you’ve got yourself a no-nonsense crowd pleaser. OK, so it’s not going to be winning any awards for intelligence or innovation anytime soon, but it’s guaranteed to keep the floor moving.

[Audio] The Sanfernando Sound reMixes Foreign Boy’s ‘Dance Like A Light’

One of the surprise groovers of the summer, London’s Foreign Boy’s Dance Like A Light, is set to receive a new lease of life with a follow up reMix collection. Once again coming courtesy of Nude Disco, the Italo Disco monster gets some heavyweight working over from the likes of LosBikini, Sex On TV, SunnySunday and this juggernaut from our pal The Sanfernando Sound. Listen in.

In contrast to Foreign Boy’s decidedly British take on Italo, The Sanfernando Sound delivers an European epic, complete with thunderous EBM basslines and EuroDance leads, all wrapped up in a retro Disco package. Foreign Boy’s robo-vocals fit this soundtrack perfectly, forming a hypnotic mantra until they give way tot he soaring synth solo. The whole reMix package is currently available on Bandcamp, you should check it out.

[Audio] Jordan F reMixes KLP’s ‘Medicine’

 

KLP

Australian SynthWaver Jordan F swings back into the groove this week with his entry in a currently running reMix competition. The subject is fellow Aussie KLP’s current single Medicine; a booming slice of Future R&B that’s been doing some big things recently. Check out what some of electronic music’s finest unsung talents does with the sprawling tune as he drags it to the dancefloor.

Jordan hits the Synth Disco sound hard with his reMix. Rolling on an pumping bass with a head nodding pattern, Jordan keeps the lows heavy and the highs breezy to create a nostalgic slice of poolside that sounds perfect with KLP’s vocals. But wait, there’s more, switching things up a little two thirds of the way though, Jordan treats us to an Italo infused retro finale. Staying loyal to his SynthWave roots, but bringing something new to the table. You can vote for Jordan F’s entry in the reMix competition here.

[Audio] AIMES’ ‘Burnin”remixed by Tronik Youth

 

aimes1

This week one of Brooklyn’s finest purveyors of synthesizer goodness AIMES drops his new release via Wonder Stories. It’s a companion to his huge single of earlier this year, Burnin’  featuring five new versions of the tune. This new reMix collection brings together such talent as Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, A Copycat, Perdido Key, Rocco Desentis; and this grinding monster from London Electro hounds Tronik Youth.

As you’ll no doubt be aware, the original was a driving and summery House tune that featured some soulful vocals from NY resident Javi; this is completely flipped as Tronik Youth give the track an East London basement club vibe. A stuttering and ominous Electro rework that despite being abrasive and relentless retains a cheeky charm. Chainsaw synths and squealing leads replace the poolside sounds of the original as Tronik Youth put together a strobe-light oddessy for the early hours. Now there’s a Burnin’ for every occasion!

♫ AIMES (Feat. Javi) – Burnin’ (Tronik Youth reMix)

AIMES’ Burnin’ reMixes are released 8th December.
