Next week sees the release of awesome Aussie ElectroPop duo Bag Raiders’s self titles début album over here in the UK.
If you’ve already imported it you’ll know it’s a stunning body of work. Funky, powerful and consistently catchy, it’s 11 tracks of some of the best produced ElectroPop you’ll hear all year. It even made our top 20 albums of 2010!
Following the album will be the single release of ‘Sunlight’, including this reMix from Stopmakingme, who strips the track down to a solid groove to highlight the vocoding. Great stuff!
It’s got cool ElectroPop, Dancefloor sensibilities, and a monkey in the video. I get the feeling Bag Raiders’ forthcoming new single ‘Sunlight’ is gonna’ do well.
The reMix package has got one or two gems contained within too. Check this mix by fellow Australians G.L.O.V.E.S.. You know the G.L.O.V.E.S. name is a mark of quality and what you get here is no exception. Smooth Nu-Disco sounds to while away the night with a shuffling beat. this is the stuff to make you forget about the cold and dance in the snow!
It’s pretty fair to say I’m a little obsessed with Bag Raiders’ ‘Way Back Home’, in fact their whole self-titled début album is a work of genius.
Considering I can’t get enough of the track new reMixes are always welcome. Enter Sydney man-of-mystery Universe who pulls the ElectroPop powerhouse of a track into Tropical, Cosmic Disco, territory. Turning the upbeat, almost anthemic, original into a lazy, hazy, summer jam with some rad percussive touches.
Bag Raiders have always, consistently, pumped out some of the best Nu-Disco/ElectroPop sounds around, so the album, titled ‘Way Back Home’, is highly anticipated. Check the title track, it perfectly displays Bag Raider knack for storming dancefloor Disco with Pop sensibilities which those lucky enough to be in Australia this year can sample live as the duo embark on a national tour to promote the album, details here.
The week in Bangers: While electronic rumors isn’t strictly an Electro-House blog, we do cover a lot of Electro-House that crosses over in to our realm. So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…
