Relation; Optimistic


Right kids, I’ve been pretty ill the last few days so I have all these posts mounting up and tonight they are gonna’ drop. We’ve got a lot to get through, so hold on tight!

So, I can think of no better way to kick things off than with Essex SynthPoppers Relation who are gearing up for the release of the second single from their ‘Fear Of Night’ album.

Relation’s slightly house tinged SynthPop mixes some really early 80’s sounding elements, particularly in the vocals and lead lines (think early Depeche Mode) with modern beats and basslines which makes for a compelling combination. The single, ‘Optimistic’, is a smooth, almost SynthSoul, jam that comes with a meaty reMix package. The Laserdisco mix is a minimal, bass heavy take that verges on Dub. The Diogenes Club provide probably my favourite of the mixes sending the track straight into Disco territory. You know all the Dreamwave tracks your playing in your Ferrari driving through the city streets at night? Well, this is the track they are playing at the club you’re heading to! Eat More Cake attack the track from left field with some world music atmospherics that somehow actually compliment the vocals.
