Jules Schimmer reMixes Aaron Alexis

Aaron Alexis

Ney York ElectroPop artist (and general renascence man) Aaron Alexis’ ‘Heart Box Smasher’ was an intimate, eclectic, slice of SynthPop we featured last summer, well that was until Manc retro synth man Jules Schimmer got his hands on it. Now it’s a huge slap of ‘80’s electronic Pop.

Schimmer brings that particularly ‘80’s combination of bouncy and moody to the tune with a slight Italo flavour and some deep pads. Crafting a tune that could easily work as the theme tune to a mid-‘80’s TV show about a crime fighting Casanova, the combination of Aaron’s soulful vocals and Jules’ RoboPop is something that works amazingly well. We need to hear more from these two, separately, and maybe more together too.

Aaron Alexis’ ‘Full Moon’

Aaron Alexis

Photographer, Director, Kitsuné collaborator and ElectroPop producer Aaron Alexis has dropped his next track on us.

Continuing his unique take on SynthPop, Aaron’s music is quite and understated. That’s not to say his songs aren’t rich and full tracks, but there is an air of intimacy, of introspection about them. Meticulously crafted, ‘Full Moon’ is impassioned, yet distant, and makes wonderful use of layers of synths and drums to create ElectroPop that is lush, but calming.

Aaron Alexis is a video director who was worked with Kitsuné and Chromat amongst others and is now expressing the ElectroPop side of his creativity.

‘Heart.Box.Smasher’, his latest tune, is an intimate electronic Pop tune that despite being quite layered managers to low key stripped down and personal. Aaron’s understated, almost whispered at times, vocal conveys a real depth of feeling while the deceptively intricate programming created a slightly distant, slightly detached mood as a counterpoint. With ‘Heart.Box.Smasher’, Aaron Alexis has crafted some incredibly listenable, somehow humble, synthesizer music.
