Here’s two absolutely legendary heavyweights of electronic music in one track. How is that not amazing? We introduced you to 80s icons Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark’s new single, Dresden, earlier in the month, well here it is as envisioned by SynthPop pioneer John Foxx, here in his John Foxx And The Maths guise.

Pulsating robot-synths and machine beats are the order of the day here as Foxx brings his cold, futuristic, SynthPop to OMD’s more human take on the genre. Shuffling, noisy rhythms and relentless synth bass craft out a core for the track to unleash a combination of icy vintage synth drones and Andy McCluskey’s passionate vocal. To pillars of 80s music, who have both been delivering quality, intelligent, synth sounds consistently over the past two decades, here show why they are innovators, why they are so respected, and why they are still forces to be reckoned with in 2013.

SynthPop legends Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark return next month with a brand new single to precede their forthcoming English Electric album. The new release follows on from 2010’s History Of Modern album and really sees OMD getting back in their classic SynthPop groove.

The first single from the new record, Metroland, is a rousing slice of electronic Pop music. A seven minute odyssey that encompasses OMD’s entire career, Metroland revels in it’s SynthPop past, delivering a classic electronic sound accompanied by Andy McCluskey’s instantly recognisable vocals. Pure OMD, the song is just what we’d want from a new track from these guys, dramatic, robotic loaded with sparkling synths.

Followed by Maid Of Orleans (The Waltz Joan Of Arc), from 1982.

Krystal Klear’s OMD reMix

It’s gotta’ be said, both The Human League and OMD are really upping their game in terms of their choices of reMix artists for their recent singles. Gone is their vague, yet uneducated, nod to modern electronic music to be replaced by a real insight into what is happening on ElectroPop friendly dancefloors these days.

Case in point; Krystal Klear’s reMix of OMD’s new single, ‘History Of Modern’ is a straight-up dancefloor Nu-Disco jam awash with New Jack Swing vibes. Dropping a deep jacking bass, vocoded vocals and huge 80’s Disco chords seems so far away from OMD’s SynthPop sound yet works so well.

The video is the wining entry in a competition run by OMD on genero.tv, It was produced by Lapantafilm from Sweden.

OMD said "The sheer volume of work that has gone into this is incredible. So many different film animation styles. A very creative mixture of stop frame animation, modelling, drawing, film capture. A serious collection of OMD references… some of which are incredibly subtle, some not. The ideas are a varied and effective as the many different techniques. There were several really strong entries but this is the clear winner."
