London’s Swedish king of ballsy Electro-Disco Blende is gearing up for the release of his new single, Fake Love, later this month. Blende has been consistently impressing with his reMix work this year, but now with blend [pun intended] of French Electro, French Disco and English ElectroPop he’s about to give some of the biggest names on the scene a run for their money.
We’re not saying this lightly either. We were a little lukewarm on the latest Justice album, if it’d sounded like Fake Love, we would have been all over it. It’s loaded with those chainsaw synths and phased piano that we’d normally associate with Justice, but Blende takes it to the next level. Rebecca (from Sweden’s Rebecca And Fiona) provides a rich vocal for the track, adding a catch hook to a track that is so full of Funk, so full of electronic power, that it has to be heard to be believed. Sometimes, just sometimes, the new kids can really take the old masters to school. reMixes are supplied by The Living Islands, Belgian legends Villa, who turn in a gritty Disco stompfest with a hard Electro pump to it and electronic rumors favourites Chordashian who bring their pounding Disco-House groove to the table in the single standout reMix. Fake Love comes highly recommended.
