One of the stars of the last couple of years, French ElectroPoppers Reflex, have done it again. We’ve covered Belgian outfit Shindu’s new single for Continental Records, Just Go, quite a bit this past month. It’s released as part of the reMix single of Just Go on 10th December and amongst the likes of Kamp!, Plaisir De France and Oxford, will sit this gem from our favourite French duo.
Just Go is a very cool track indeed, so it’s a hard one to top, but Reflex do just that. Loaded with Reflex’s fun and funky take on ElectroPop, with an injection of Disco and tons of quirkiness. A pounding Disco beat and springy synths bounce all over this track with a summery smoothness, perfect for knocking out the winter blues. The little interactions between lead lines are a work of synth art. This is definitely the killer version of this tune.

We last saw Belgian ElectroPop act Shindu releasing on Kitsuné last summer. their storming cover of Siouxsie And The Banshees’ Happy House went down a treat. Now the slimmed down two piece are back with a new single on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records which is already getting a ton of support from some of the coolest DJs ion the planet.
Just Go is a big, rousing, slick of European SynthPop, all vintage synths and sultry vocals. Alongside the Original and a reMix from the amazing Cyclist, Jerry Bouthier himself gets a look-in with a rocking Dub version that’s primed for the dancefloors. Spinning the best of the original out into a floor-filling five minutes, JB works the buzzing analog synth bass and baroque leads, bringing out their most euphoric qualities. Mixing in just the right amount of vocals in the chorus the track takes on a new, anthemic, quality. Expect to be hearing this one all over.
Kitsuné Music’s latest single release is Belgian act Shindu’s take on Siouxsie And The Banshees 1980 hit ‘Happy House’.
It’s a track that was begging for a modern workover and Shindu have certainly lived up to the challenge. Dropping Topical and Disco vibes over the song works so well. Produced by Moonlight Matters the track is already being tipped to be one of tunes of the summer. London’s ElectroPop double act supreme JBAG take it to the next level though with a huge dancefloor aimed retro monster of a track. With a killer bassline and a constant build to the finale, this records is going to tear up some floors this summer. Herr Styler contribute a deep House mix with a 90’s piano sound that turns the track into a majestic epic.
