[Audio] Sally Shapiro’s reMix album (with Mitch Murder, Little Boots, Lovelock & Nite Jewel)

After the overwhelming success of Swedish ElectroPop duo Sally Shapiro’s third album, Somewhere Else, and the preceding single, the Electric Youth featuring Starman we were eager for more, but we didn’t expect something this hot. Just released is Elsewhere, a reMix companion for Somewhere Else who line-up is a variable whos-who is the cream of ElectroPop talent. It’s a killer meeting of minds that features the likes of Dan Lissvik, Young Galaxy, Lost Years and The Field, but right now we are going to take a look at some of our highlights.

First up, the undeniable king of SynthWave, Mr. Mitch Murder, graces the album with his presence. Reworking All My Life, Mitch delivers on his particular brand or rich, emotional, synthesized soundtrack work beautifully here. The deep, twanging, digital bass and invigorating electronic pulse play nicely against the warm tones to create something head-nodding brilliant. It’s prefect for Sally’s vocals too, the interaction between the chorus vocals and the bass is just amazing. If Mitch if the electronic music king, then our girl Little Boots is the queen. Taking on the brilliantly titled This City’s Local Italo Disco DJ Has A Crush On Me, Boots whips up some mirrorball sheen with a surprisingly gritty hook. Mixing up House and Nu-Disco elements to classy effect, Boots turns-in a slo-mo, soft focus, dancefloor dream. One of the most talented men in retro electronica, Steve Moore, here in his Lovelock guise turns his attention to I Dream With an Angel Tonight, injecting it with smooth, laid back, vintage Disco and Italo sounds with a cinematic feel and a slight mysterious, Sci-Fi vibe. LA synthesizer Funk queen Nite Jewel bring to the table a typically atmospheric and left-field slice of electronics in her rendition of Sundown, loaded with compelling basses and swirling soundscapes turning Sally Shapiro from twee ElectroPop into brooding, but groove, Cold Wave. This is definitely a recommended release, with a stellar line-up and a wide variety of styles, there really is something for everyone.

Nite Jewel & Dntel

OK, someone’s just massing with me now. It’s bad enough that track ten on Nite Jewel beautiful current album ‘One Second Of Love’ freaks me the hell out, it’s called ‘Clive’, which does my head in. But now they get Dntel to weird it up even further?

Dntel is, of course, Jimmy Tamborello who was one half of The Postal Service, who’s ‘Give Up’ was possible the best album of 2003 (whoa! was it that long ago?), so if they’re going to get anyone to twist up my namesake then I’m happy he’s the guy. The reMix is amazingly innovative, chopping up the vocals into new melodies to layer alongside his glitchy beats a wonderfully emotive synth sounds. Ramona Gonzalez take on a whole new beauty as an instrument, becoming part of the wall of dreamlike noise, kept in check with a steady dancefloor beat. And, yes, it does sound a little like the Postal Service.

Nite Jewel’s ‘One Second Of Love’ video

Nite Jewel is just about to release her second album ‘One Second Of Love’ and it’s similarly titled lead single, and has premièred the video for the track.

Delaney Bishop directs this freaky ladies get-together come paper headed goat ceremony. I don;t know what’s going on, but it looks like most people are having a good time, and that’s what counts.

Nite Jewel’s ‘One Second Of Love’ album is released 6th March.

Track ten on Nite Jewel’s forthcoming second new album ‘One Second Of Love’ freaked me out! It’s titled ‘Clive’, but that’s my name! For a good few seconds I genuinely thought they we’re somehow doing personalized promos now, I had to check and double check other sites tracklistings. But there is it, track ten on ‘One Second Of Love’ is named after me. It must be, right? Why would you call it that otherwise?

Ramona Gonzalez’s second record is a thing of beauty. From her Nu-Funk influenced basslines to the washes of Chillwavey reverb drenched synths to her quirky, left-field delivery this seems to be a more focused record than her début ‘Good Evening’, more coherent. It’s a dark and moody vision of ‘80’s Synth Funk and R&B fed through a modern LA Funk machine and dunked in the Chillwave river. There a particular production here that makes the lush synths and Ramona’s intimate vocals sound quite sparse and separated, but that’s the Nite Jewel sound, it’s something that is at once far away and right next to you. ‘One Second Of Love’ is a melting pot of ideas that is made one by Nite jewels vision. If you want something chilled, but a bit funky, check it out.

Nite Jewel’s ‘One Second Of Love’

Nite Jewel

Nite Jewel had just dropped the first taste of what to expect from her forthcoming new album.

The album is set to drop March 2012, but right now we can check out the title track ‘One Second Of Love’. It just the kind of blurry collision between LA Nu-Funk and Downtempo ElectroPop that’s we’d expect from Nite Jewel. Featuring emotionally injected synths and a deep groove for Ramona Gonzalez’s catchy, but slightly distant vocals to ride over. Ramona’s stripped down, minimal take on DiscoPop has always made her stand out for the pack, and this new album should be something to look forward to.

The ‘One Second Of Love’ album is out 5th March 2012, preceded by the single ‘She’s Always Watching You’.

Nite Jewel’s ‘Am I Real?’, video + Classixx reMix

This is the new video for an old Nite Jewel track. ‘Am I Real?’ was released last summer on the Nu-Funk-tastic ‘Am I Real?’ EP last summer but has only just got itself a clip.

Directed by Jose Wolff and Delaney Bishop, the video is pretty out there…but then again, I suppose Nite jewel is too:

DāM-FunK and Nite Jewel keep it funky

It’s been ages since Synth-Funk master DāM-FunK and Nite Jewel supposedly teamed up to record an album under the moniker Nite-Funk. Apparently the album will finally be surfacing later this year, but until then this track might provide a glimpse of what to expect.

DāM-FunK’s reMix of Nite Jewel’s ‘It Goes Through Your Head’ will appear on the forthcoming single out later this month and it’s exactly what I’d want the Nite-Funk album to sound like. I love DāM-FunK’s synth work so much, he just gets that 80’s Post-Funk ElectroPop perfectly which makes a nice counter for Ramona Gonzalez’s vocals.

‘It Goes Through YOur head’ is out soon on Mexican Summer.
