[Audio] Say Lou Lou X Lindstrøm’s ‘Games For Girls’ reMixed by The Penelopes

 

say-lou-lou

The funky Disco spike in Australian/Swedish ElectroPop sisters Say Lou Lou’s career to day, their collaboration with Comic Disco dog Lindstrøm Games For Girls has been brought back into their more familiar ElectroPop territory with this storming new reMix from our favourite Parisians lost in London, The Penelopes. As Say Lou Lou ramp up to the release of their début album, Lucid Dreaming, early next year, this is the prefect tune to bring the hype.

The Penelopes lay on the Tropical grooves thick to keep things fresh, but the main crux of the reMix is turbocharging the groove. This is a slamming dancefloor take on the tune; the beats pound, the basses pop and the builds go stratospheric. A punchy synth symphony that’s perfectly at home with Say Lou Lou’s vocals, which are kept largely intact here. the Penelopes have turned in an awesome, adrenaline spiking track that we’re saving for the weekend.

Australian/Swedish majestic ElectroPop sisters Say Lou Lou are already touting the release of their long awaited début album, and it;s not going to be here until early next year! It’ll be called Lucid Dreaming and despite not being available until February 2015, we can already get excited for it with their brand new single, a collaboration with Norwegian Cosmic Disco master Lindstrøm. Let the good times roll!

We have to admit, we found it a immediately a little jarring to hear Say Lou Lou in the context of quirky Scandinavian analog Disco, but as soon as you settle into the groove it all seems to make sense. Say Lou Lou, obviously, appear a lot less serious and a lot more fun as their intertwining vocals bounce over a cheeky arpeggiated bassline and and a sweet plethora of playful synths. It’s good to hear Say Lou Lou branching out in the lead up to their album. If we were interested before, we are super interested now!

[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?

[Audio] Lindstrøm reMixes Little Boots’ ‘Satellite’

 

Little Boots

Well this is pretty exciting. The queen of UK ElectroPop Little Boots and Norwegian Cosmic Disco master Lindstrøm! That’s a meeting of minds! Lindstrøm is serving up just one of the many reMixes to be featured on Boot’s new single Satellite, which is taken from her amazing second album Nocturnes. To coincide with the single’s release, Boots is also launching a reMix competition for the track, the prize for the most played entry being a Traktor Z1 controller, and one reMix will be picked by Victoria personally to appear on the single release. Get the low down here.

So, to Lindstrøm’s mix. It’s a glorious six minutes of driving tundra Disco, as ecclectic as ever, Hans-Peter rolls in a symphony of synth stabs, organic beats, and bubbling bass notes, and hit just that right note that only he and his Scandinavian peers can. Cosmic, but very down to earth too. Lindstrøm revels in Little Boot’s anthemic vocals and really makes the best of them, never overpowering the vocal melody with his own groove. It’s a good, complimentary, relationship. We can;t wait to see what’s on the rest of the single.

[Audio] Lindstrøm reMixed by Charli XCX & Twin Idol

 

lindstrom_thumb

In return for Norwegian Cosmic genius Lindstrøm reMixing here current single, You (Ha Ha Ha), ElectroPop princess Charli XCX has teamed up with Twin Idol to drop a radical reworking of Lindstrøm’s Fāār-I-Kāāl. And when we say ‘radical reworking’, we really mean it, Fāār-I-Kāāl, is I’m sure you remember is a bright, optimistic slab of funky galactic Disco. This is a bass heavy ElectroPop haze.

So what we have here is an R&B flavoured Bass track with and ElectroPop vibe. Charli lays down some vocals which the original track was missing and wraps the track in swirls of hazy synths and chimes. Big warping bass sounds jostle for space with haunting melodies as Charli and Twin Idol create a mood both of mystery and for dancing. Let’s face it, it’s pretty much a different song, but a pretty compelling one though.

[Audio] Charli XCX remixed by Lindstrøm

Charli XCX

You may have seen us get a little giddy about this tune last week on Google+ and Twitter. It’s out girl Charli XCX’s new single, You (Ha Ha Ha), reMixed my the space Disco man of the moment Lindstrøm. Alongside the Goldroom reMix, this is the one we were most excited about, and it doesn’t disappoint.

A little more stripped down and Housey than maybe we are used to from Lindstrøm, the track nevertheless retains all the Norwegian’s Cosmic Disco charm. Sparse and Groove, with an almost Dubby swing to it, Lindstrøm’s remix creates a woozy electronic mood into which he drops in and out swirling synths and warping bass sounds. How he manages to get so ecclectic with his pallet and still keep the vibe fun and funky I have no idea, but he pulls it off. Add to this Charli’s top vocal and you’ve got a track that lives up to the hype.

You (Ha Ha Ha) is released 3rd February.

[MP3] Lindstrøm reMixes Grizzly Bear

Grizzly Bear

Well, it was probably only a matter of time. After the kind of hype that Norwegian cosmic Disco legend Lindstrøm received toward the end of 2012, we knew sooner or later the cool Pitchfork crown would come knocking on his door. Oh look, here’s a Lindstrøm reMix of the new Grizzly Bear single, Gun Shy. That was quick.

It’s actually a pretty amazing track. It’s hypnotic space-age Disco track with all the tundral charm that we love Lindstrøm for. The mans knack for making icy, piercing synths feel warm and comforting is second to none, and he really knows how to rock an infectious hook. This has the potential to be one of the biggest tracks of the summer, expect to hear this a lot on your local indie dancefloor. Indie flavoured Cosmic Disco at it’s finest.

Lindstrøm & Todd Terje

Well, this was bound to set the internet alight. Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ll already be aware of the new single from two of the standout producers of 2012. Lindstrøm and Todd Terje both owned last year when it comes to quirky, spacey Disco, and now the two Norwegians are together as one.

Lanzarote is the name of the single, which strikes a nice balance between the sunlit warmth of Disco and ice Scandinavian electronics. Clock in at over eight minutes, Lanzarote feels like a journey through frozen tundra wearing Bermuda shorts and shades. Typically Scandinavian piecing synths and vintage tones are all present, but tempered with a Tropical undercurrent, the end result is fun as hell.  Diskjokke, who also had a hand in the original writing of Lanzarote delivers an even spacier reMix that hits just the right synthetic Disco notes.
