Listening to French ElectroPop partnership Jupiter’s new single ‘One O Six’, it’s immediately obvious that the track is a homage to the Roland Juno 106 synthesizer. Saying that though, I suppose they could be singing about the Peugeot 106, or the 106 bus route that runs between Finsbury Park and Whitechapel in London, where the duo met. See how I slipped that in there? It’s called journalism bitches.
Alongside reMixes from the likes of Juveniles, The Supermen Lovers & Turzi Electronique Experience, the real highlight of the single is this version from is-he-or-isn’t-he-in-Mustang-anymore fella A.N.D.Y. and it’s an absolute blinder of a tune. Continuing in his tradition of mixing analog Disco grooves with bouncy ElectroPop synth lines, A.N.D.Y. one again throws loads of different elements into the pot and brews up a tasty DiscoPop stew. Driven by a crazy simple, but funky as all hell, bassline the track dips in and out of big retro stabs, lush strings and a hint of a Tropical flavour then nicely twists things about in a big building middle eight, that sounds like the theme to an ‘80’s cartoon about robots lost in space, before dropping you right back in the thick of the Disco.
Jupiter’s ‘One O Six’ is released 16th April.
