Here’s the second single from Portland Minimal Synth Robo-Pop duo Soft Metals’ forthcoming sophomore album, Lenses. We had a taste of what’s to come back in May with the first release, Tell Me, now this new track, In The Air, has us even more eagerly awaiting the new record.
With Glaswegian Electro master JD Twitch providing hypnotic warehouse drum programming ion this one, In The Air nicely mixes up ethereal DreamPop with a gritty Acid House groove. With futuristic pulsating Acid bass and retro, clap laden, House beats In the Air has a dark, strobe lit, quality to it that is tempered only by Patricia’s haunting siren song. Lenses is definitely shaping up to be one of the albums of the year.

Are you ready for an Acid disco oddessy? ‘cos that’s what’s being served up right now in the form of this fresh new reMix from Mullet Records main man Casio Social Club. Latvian collaboration Phonetica Vs. Soulemotion are the targets for this blissful, intoxicating, synth workout.
Bringing a little Balearic feeling to proceedings, Casio Social Club whips up a hypnotic Acid riff, which he works into a groovy backing. His reMix of Impossible Love is hard to resist. Full of lush synths and haunting reverby piano, that both play nicely against the undulating Acid hook, this reMix really is one to loose yourself in, and when it finished you find yourself missing it. Its mind control we tells ya!

This is White Noise. It’s a collaboration between awesome House duo Disclosure and even awesomer Electro R&B duo AlunaGeorge. It reader it head last night. It broke the internet.
And you can see why, the amount of talent featured in this track isn’t wasted. Disclosure create the perfect, otherworldly, soundtrack. Part Acid House, part Bleep House, all warehouse, White Noise is a nostalgic trip for anyone who was raving in 1990, but the addition of Aluna’s vocals give the whole affair a soulful Pop twist. No-one really thought of ElectroPop Bleep House back in 1990, maybe if they had the scene would have lasted for longer than a year. this is the prefect melding of deep Dance Music vibes and Pop sheen. amazing. (P.S. I refuse to call Bleep House ‘Yorkshire Bleep & Bass’, we called it Bleep House at the time, and I’m sticking with that!)

Some Deep Housey vibes right now from Black Magic Disco, as his new track sees him teaming up with Tom Eales for some growling groove action. So Serious is a free download courtesy of Pole Position Recordings and features a slightly different vibe than we are used to from BMD, but one that is bound to move you.
A head on collision between early ‘90’s warehouse sounds and Nu-disco, we can actually hear an ominous Acid House undercurrent to So Serious. It’s like Stakker Humanoid suddenly got all light and dreamy. Layering that typically ‘90s rolling Acid bass with a sprinkle of funk and a Housey riff give us the best of all worlds, and the vocoded vocals are just the icing on the cake. Time to get dancing.
