[Audio] Worship’s ‘Paradise’

 

Worship

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard anything from epic Swiss SynthWaver Worship; he seems to be on one release a year these days, and he’s keepings things tight in 2014 by waiting ‘til the end of the year to drop- a new release. But drop a new release he has. At the end of last week he unleashed his latest slice of Italo, Disco, Dreamwave goodness. This is Paradise.

Paradise is one of those Cosmic Disco journeys that really is a journey. Worship’s music always had an epic, cinematic quality to it and this is no different. Headed thick with lush synths and rousing chords, Paradise is part space-age floorfiller, part Sci-Fi soundtrack. Leading with a stuttering Italo bassline, the track weaves it’s audio tapestry our of sweeping pads, uplifting leads and emotional keys, paving the way for a funky little riff to intersect the track at it’s nexus. A welcome return for Worship right here.

[Audio] Clancy’s ‘Revolutions’

Here’s the B-side to the new Anjunadeep released single from Clancy. The A-Side, I Wanna’ Know features duo of the moment, Eli & Fur, and is a futuristic club juggernaut that gonna’ blow up when it’s released this week. The flip side, Revolutions, proves a worthy counterpart as Clancy gets deep and hypnotic.

This one is pure moody House electronics. A stripped back tune that distils House down to it’s basic elements and works them for full dancefloor control. Still retaining Clancy’s Sci-Fi soundtrack vibe, Revolutions is a synth bass heavy groover that gets under your skin. The kind of tune you can loose yourself in on the dancefloor. Clancy’s Anjunadeep dominance has just begun.

[Download] Route94’s ‘Shards Of Glass’

 

route-94_thumb

Route94 delivers possible his best tune to date with his new stormer. It’s an exclusive for Mixmag and Rowan Jones has serves up a wonderful Sci-Di Disco House tune that contains everything we love about both club music and synth music. This is the reason Route94 is fast becoming one of the most sought after in the country.

There’s hints of Boogie and Italo in Shards Of Glass, the cutting digital bassline has got a definite 80s swing to it, and the sparking keys leant toward the Jarre end of the synthesizer scale. Pairing that up with some ridiculously heavy bass and a pounding dancefloor beat Route94 delivers something both retro and contemporary, and ties it all up nicely in a House groove. Awesome stuff!

[Audio] Starcadian’s ‘Saturdaze’ EP

 

Starcadian

So, after whetting your appetite with one hell of a mashup late last week New York electro wizard Starcadian dropped his new EP just in time for the weekend. We honestly weren’t expecting another body of work this size for a while; (for us at least) his album Sunset Blood is still fresh in our ears and despite being a year old, still gets constant play (also, writing “despite being a year old” just made us sad. Oh internet, what have you done to the shelf life of music?). The Saturdaze EP ages as somewhat of a companion piece to Sunset Blood; but whereas the album soundtracked the best in straight to video Sci-Fi thrillers, Saturdaze takes Saturday morning TV and runs with it.

And it does hit the ground running, the EP’s opener, Ultralove, is one of Starcadian’s best to date. The intro along is immense strings, synths, sax and crazy toms work the music up into a frenzy before dropping and kicking back in with a synth heavy future Disco belter. Ultralove is a journey through everything Starcadian does best, hard hitting raw Disco, Quite vocoder moments and squealing solos. This one’s got it all. It;s a tough act to follow, but the rest of the EP tries it’s hardest. Dance Or Die is the real TV theme hero here, mixing a rockin’ riff with Chiptune hooks this is your optimistic, action-packed, Cartoon intro here. Money seems to be a spiritual successor to Pompey Pirate a little, a growling, enigmatic Electro track that reminds us that Starcadian can do Dark just as well as Uplifting. Alien Victory jostles for position as the EP’s stand out track, an epic duet between ominous, creeping, synthetic tones and skyrocketing euphoric leads. There’s a whole movie that plays out in your head just to this one track; from the dark times to the hopeful future, Alien Victory will carry you there. All that excitement is followed by Entoptica, the EP’s instrumental power ballad, a soaring solo set against a steady melancholy electric groove before the release plays out on a new, up-tempo, dancefloor friendly version of previous single, and space ballad, He^rt.Kicking the track up a few BMP and dropping a kickin’ beat under the track doesn’t hurt it one bit, and reinvents it as a floorfilling anthem. As you can imagine Saturdaze comes highly recommended; we really can’t stress that enough, you need to get involved.

[Audio] Clancy and Eli & Fur’s ‘I Wanna’ Know’

 

clancy

Our boy Clancy has been snapped up by Anjunadeep, and rightly so. One of the leading lights of the Dreamwave, then Nu-Disco, then Deep House scenes it’s far past time that Clancy blew up; and with his forthcoming new single it looks more likely than ever. The amazing Eli & Fur drop in for vocal duties on I Wanna’ Know which only serves to take the tune to the next level. You could seriously be hearing a lot of this in the coming months.

Drawing on his retro electro past, Clancy injects  the UK Deep House sound with extra helpings of SynthWave-y futurism. Weaving dystopian soundtracks over booming club grooves, I Wanna’ Know presents a epic track that powers the dancefloor with growling basses and pounding drums, but also lays out an atmospheric soundscape. Eli & Fur serve up a hazy vocal accompaniment that hits just the right note to make you sit up and pay attention. An intelligent House monster; we can’t wait for this release.

Clancy’s I Wanna’ Know is released 6th October on Anjunadeep.

Starcadian

Back in 2012, when we were just getting to know his work, New York’s synthesizer mastermind Starcadian released what is possibly one of the best mashups ever unleashed on the world. First Kill crammed in Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Pharoahe Monch, Queen, Belinda Carlisle, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Busta Rhymes and Wu Tang Clan over some seriously hard hitting Disco sounds. Now, with one of our favourite albums of last year, Sunset Blood, under his belt, and with the storming new Saturdaze EP, on the horizon Starcadian drags you back to the dancefloor with his follow-up bootleg. This is Wrecking Shot.

This time around Miley Cyrus, Ol’ Dirty Bastard & Kelis and Tracy Weber get run through Starcadian’s galactic groove machine and spat out the other side in as a mirror-balled glam jam. Piled high with the finest French Touch, Nu-Disco and a surprising amount of Italo, Wrecking Shot once again surprises us as Starcadian makes seemingly disparate songs weave in and out of each other seamlessly. Where Fist Kill was full throttle Electro, Wrecking Shot has a smooth and soulful side. This should more than keep you going until Starcadian brings his urban synth Disco, with a Saturday morning TV theme vibe, on the new EP.

Starcadian’s Sunset Blood is out now. The Saturdaze EP is released 26th September.

[Audio] Ilya Santana’s ‘Big Foot’ reMixed by Future Feelings

 

ilya_santana

Mediterranean Cosmic Disco master Ilya Santana has released on most of the top Disco labels at one time or another, and now the Spaniard is preparing to unleash his latest single via London’s Retrospective Recordings. It’s called Big Foot, which immediately makes us think of those shaped ice creams, which, we guess, adds to the laid back summery groove in some way. Right here we are premièring our friends, Mexican Nu-Disco outfit Future Feelings, take on the tune. Deep and synthy stuff to follow.

Future Feelings take the very organic Disco sounding original and inject it with a healthy dose of robo-boogie. The Cosmic vibe is still in place, but in this more synthetic environment takes on a Jarre-like quality as it rides over an undulating electronic groove. The bass hammers home while the leads fly. Analog Disco at it’s best, this reMix is a galactic journey through a 70s lens. Buck Rogers would have loved this one!””

Box Of Wolves

Costal is the latest slice of sweet, laid back, Tropical Disco Chillwave bliss from the wonderful Mr. Box Of Wolves. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, Box Of Wolves hazy dance sounds always take you away to a warmer climate and better times. Check out his new symphony of nostalgia and groove; and prepare to let the sunshine into your life.

Riding in a hazy organ hook, Costal rolls together elements of House, SynthWave, Chillwave and Nu-Disco into one warm and relaxing four minute jam. Layered with intricate purcussion and waves of smokey pads, the track take you on a smooth voyage where you can forget your troubles. Sometimes we thing Tropical is the sound of the summer, but sometimes it occurs to us that Tropical should be the sound of the winter, when you really need warming up, so we’re glad Box Of Wolves brought us Coastal when he did.

Mitch Murder

Our vinyl copy SynthWave pioneer Mitch Murder’s new Mad Decent released album, Interceptor, has still not shown up. Apparently they’ve been delayed ‘til October now! what few quality pressing plants there are left are struggling to cope with the resurgence of interest in vinyl releases it seems. In the meantime we’ll have to console ourselves with his brand new (old) single, Breeze.

After a recent crop of vintage video game inspired tune, Breeze takes us back to a classic Mitch Murder groove. Smooth and soulful, this is a tune to soundtrack your lazy summer afternoons in a retro style. The optimistic synths and starlight chimes ooze 80s cool. After the track has has suitable time to introduce you to it’s laid back electronic vibe, it sweetly delivers a brain melting synth solo, the kind that leys were made for, and take you to the next plane of musical existence. Now…where’s that vinyl?!?!
