Erasure frontman Andy Bell is still concentrating on his, now renamed, solo work and his latest single, ‘Call On Me’ has been given the Nu-Disco funk by Hey Champ!.
It’s a nice meeting of two worlds, SynthPop new and old. Hey Champ! bring their customary, epic sounding, space Disco to Bell’s instantly recognisable voice, the end result being a subtly infectious groove with some slick vocals.
MiMó is, or rather was, Erasure’s Any Bell. Having recently released his second single, ‘Will You Be There?". ‘, under the moniker (a tribute to his friend Tomeau Mimó), Andy had decided to release future records under his own name due to more than one artist already using the name Mimo.
The singles, ‘Running Out’ and, the current, ‘Will You Be There?’ are a couple of Italo influenced ElectroPop/EuroPop tunes produced by Pop producer extraordinaire Pascal Gabriel. Upbeat, dancefloor, Pop tracks with Andy’s unmistakable vocals both singles have an impressive line up of reMixers. ‘Will You Be There?’ can include amongst it’s reMix credentials this mix from French Horn Rebellion who bring a relaxed Nu-Disco flavour to the track and ‘Running Out’ features a mix from Indie-Electro band-of-the-moment Fenech-Soler who’s sweeping, chilled, Electro mix is the highlight of the single.
