Incoming. We’ve got another amazing release right here on our electronic rumors label out today!
Today sees the release of the new EP from Californian Indie-Electro outfit Let Em Riot. The SlashWave EP delivers five tracks of stunning, emotional, Dreamwave Pop.
Ranging from upbeat floorfillers to impassioned ballads, SlashWave draws on bitter-sweet nostalgia and new romanticism set amidst a hazy retro 80s ElectroPop soundtrack made contemporary with Indie sensibilities.
Like the soundtrack to the John Hughes movie of your life, SlashWave brings together lush, rich synthesizers and the kind of gently melancholy, tempered with optimism, that characterized the best 80s Pop. Perfectly packages for today’s vintage Disco dancefloors.
SlashWave was written and produced by Let Em Riot’s Alan Oakes, mixed by Chris Fudurich (Jimmy Eat World, Nada Surf, RX Bandits), and mastered by Bob DeMaa (Semisonic, The Rembrandts). The cover features artwork by SBJKT.
♫ Let Em Riot – SlashWave (EP)
Let Em Riot’s SlashWave EP is released today via electronic rumors.
Today sees the release of Ride The Universe’s ‘A Little Better’ on Juno. I can’t tell you how proud we are to be releasing this package, it’s already getting shit-loads of play and even now, after hearing it a million times, it still leaves us grinning from ear to ear.
I’m just going to copy and past the press release right here (I know, copy and pasting press releases is the single lamest thing a music blog can do, but I wrote it, so it’s all good!).
The long awaited début single from Dreamwave supergroup Ride The Universeis finally here!
After a string of acclaimed Nu-Disco reMixes Ride The Universe are now ready to drop their première original single. A Little Better is a summery, funk fueled, synth Disco juggernaut that features the sweet vocals of Jane Elizabeth Hanley from Kids At Midnight(Vulture Music) and is the first step on a wonderful galactic beach-party journey.
Not long now! In ten days galaxy conquering Dreamwave supergroup Ride The Universe unleash their début original single via electronic rumors. Featuring Jane Elizabeth Hanley from Kids At Midnight, A Little Better has been a staple of all good Nu-Disco DJs crates for most of the summer and 5th November sees the track getting a remastered release with a whole host of reMixes that have been premièring on some of the internets top sites this week. We’ve had versions from Frankmusik, Pat Lok, Dublin Aunts, Auxiliary Tha Masterfader and Melee premiere this week. It’s a massive package!
But that’s not all! Oh no. Also on the single you will find the second Ride The Universe original. Which we are going to premiere right here, right now. Because it’s our record label and we can do that sort of thing. So here it is. Full-on cosmic Boogie. Buck Rogers beats and shiny jumpsuits are mandatory. This is Silky Way Galaxy.
♫ Ride The Universe – Silky Way Galaxy
Ride the Universe’s A Little Better single is released 5th November as a Juno exclusive, 19th November elsewhere via electronic rumors.
The massive announcements are coming thick and fast now! We are so proud to be able to share this one with you.
As you’ll know, we’ve been big fans of Ride The Universe from day one. Do we really need to talk about their reMix of Chromeo’s Hot Mess again? For those of you living under a particularly no-fun rock, Ride The Universe are the world’s first Nu-Disco/Dreamwave supergroup, or should that be superheroes? Made up of legendary DJ team of Nicky Savage, Jeremy Giovinazzo and Sam Aftermath, who collectively produce under the name Leisure Council (formerly Fiero) and one of Germany’s finest exports and the Nu-Disco ‘producer’s producer’ digitalfoxglove. That’s an outfit with proper musicians, proper production talent, and proper party-starting DJs, how can anything that comes out of that not be mind-blowing?
So, their début single, to be released on electronic rumors is A Little Better. First featured on electronic rumors Volume 1, A Little Better is the pinnacle in summery disco and features the sweet vocals of Jane Elizabeth Hanley (Vulture Music’s Kids At Midnight). It has been completely remastered and packaged with reMixes from legendary Electro & Pop producer Frankmusik, rising stars of the Nu-Disco scene Pat Lok and Dublin Aunts, analog Disco guru Auxiliary Tha Masterfader and Disco-House master Melee. It’s a massive release (and one we can’t stop grinning about).
♫ Ride The Universe (Feat. Jane Elizabeth Hanley) – A Little Better
Ride The Universe & Jane Elizabeth Hanley’s A Little Better is released 5th November as a Juno exclusive, all other digital stores will follow on 19th November.
We are incredibly pleased to be able to announce our welcoming of LA based Dreamwave outfit Let Em Riot to the electronic rumors family.
We’ve had out eye on Let Em Riot for a while now, so we’re pretty excited about releasing their SlashWave EP on Monday 19th November 2012. This is going to sound like bias hyperbole, but if we weren’t releasing this record, it would probably be our number one retro ElectroPop release of the year (it being on electronic rumors kinda’ disqualifies if from the electronic rumors Awards this year, but that’s a small price to pay!), it’s an amazing piece of work, powerful and emotional, with a relaxed LA synth vibe to it, and we can’t wait for you to hear it.
Not just yet though…watch this space.
Alongside Let Em Riot head honcho Alan Oakes, the EP was mixed by Chris Fudurich (Jimmy Eat World, Nada Surf, RX Bandits), and mastered by Bob Demaa (Semisonic, The Rembrandts), with some arresting artwork from SBJKT.
