Released: 19 Nov 2012
November sees the release of the new EP from Californian Indie-Electro outfit Let Em Riot. The SlashWave EP delivers five tracks of stunning, emotional, Dreamwave Pop.
Ranging from upbeat floorfillers to impassioned ballads, SlashWave draws on bitter-sweet nostalgia and new romanticism set amidst a hazy retro 80s ElectroPop soundtrack made contemporary with Indie sensibilities.
Like the soundtrack to the John Hughes movie of your life, SlashWave brings together lush, rich synthesizers and the kind of gently melancholy, tempered with optimism, that characterized the best 80s Pop. Perfectly packages for today’s vintage Disco dancefloors.
SlashWave was written and produced by Let Em Riot’s Alan Oakes, mixed by Chris Fudurich (Jimmy Eat World, Nada Surf, RX Bandits), and mastered by Bob DeMaa (Semisonic, The Rembrandts). The cover features artwork. By SBJKT.
About Let Em Riot
Let Em Riot is the brainchild of California based ElectroPop producer Alan Oakes. Drawing on a wealth of influences spanning 80s SynthPop to LA Dreamwave, Let Em Riot produce catchy, danceable retro Pop that speaks to the listener with an emotional resonance rare in synth music. With an effortless Indie cool, Let Em Riot, whist at their core a SynthPop act, speaks to everyone who gets drawn into their hazy, nostalgic, music. Débuting in 2010 with their The App EP, Let Em Riot have slowely made quite a name for themselves amongst those in the know. Now the SlashWave EP should set them on a course to take their DreamPop to a larger audience.
