London ElectroPoppers Bastille fold a little Future R&B into the sound on their new single; bad_news. The track will feature on the bands new EP, Oblivion. The EP will see a limited (1,000 copies) 7” release and feels like a chance for Bastille to air their experiments with new sounds. Apparently some of the new stuff is more Rocky, we’re crossing out fingers that their new sound will settle on deep electronic grooves like bad_news though. Check it out.
bad_news is a combination of complex Future R&B rhythms with rave-y synth squeals and Dan’s instantly recognisable vocals, albeit in a more introspective flavour. A mid-tempo jam that lyrically nicely sums up both the giving and receiving of the titular bad news while an array of synth warbles and whooshes fill the track out in the background. We’re definitely intrigued to hear what Bastille are cooking up for us in the future.

Of The Night, London ElectroPop outfit Bastille’s ode to Snap!’s Rhythm Is A Dancer and Corona’s The Rhythm Of The Night, and long-time live favourite will be the bands next single, due out at the end of next month.
The video, though, is more in tune with the end of this month, featuring a cops night-time drift from murder to murder.
Bastille’s Of The Night is released 24th November.
Switzerland’s finest purveyor of Nu-Disco and House, Ryan Riot continues on his quest to reMix the biggest Indie-Dance tracks of the moment by tackling the current single from London based ElectroPop outfit Bastille (who played an absolutely blinding set at Bestival this past weekend BTW!) and their ode to insurance claims, Things We Lost In The Fire.
Ryan’s reMix leans quite heavily in the direction of the big room. Taking the anthemic chorus from the original, Riot swamps the track in big synth riffs and an Italo rhythm section. Driving and uplifting, this tune works the vocals to create some awesome breakdowns and build to completely control the dancefloor. Ryan has been knocking it out of the park recently, and this huge tune is no different.
♫ Bastille – Things We Lost In The Fire (Ryan Riot reMix)
The sounds of London based ElelectroPopper Bastille are making some serious waves, majestic and dramatic, yet pretty introspective they are the perfect fit for this post-TEED world. However, things get really interesting when you add a little of Russ Chimes in the mix.
Flaws is Bastille’s signature tune, and it’s about to get re-released complete with reMix package. Headlining this is Mr. Chimes with a full-on Chicago House created from that dense production styles that we love about him so much. Rather than frantically throwing out whatever track they can knock together, every week, like most producers seem to have been bullied into doing these days, Chime’s tracks are few and far between. But you can see why, each tune is a labour of love, and obviously something that he has taken an immense amount of time and care over. The production alone, with so much going on, yet everything having room to breathe, must have taken ages. Let along the composition itself, a hyper House workout with an infectious bassline hook and complex intertwining melodies. just the right snatches of Bastille’s vocal have been used to give the track an anthemic quality. this one will be packing dancefloors for months to come.
We features Los Angeles Disco duo Bastille a couple of weeks ago and really dug their tunes, now they have sent on over their edit of Duck Sauce’s unreleased ‘Radio’.
The guys cut up this 80’s post-punk slice of New York Disco that the duo of A-Trak and Armand Van Gelded debuted at Coachella this year into a stomping retro dancefloor goodness. So desperate were Bastille to play the track out hat they whipped up this edit, which should keep everyone happy until it’s released. Those samples from The Members are gonna’ tear up dancefloors this summer.
Bastille are a duo from LA who are making a bit of a name for themselves pumping out some good times Nu-Disco party jams.
They’ve just dropped their ‘Bumpin’’ EP, two years in the making, for free containing three tracks of summer fun to loose yourself in. If you like your basslines funky and your Disco with chopped-up horn sections then you’re gonna’ love ‘Bumpin’’. A pure French Disco House juggernaut, the horn riff alone is worth the price of admission but couple that with a killer bassline and you have Disco gold! ‘Wide Open’ slides the mood over into more of a Funk state of mind bringing severe guitar licks to the table and a flue solo that blows the top off the tune. All of the ‘Bumpin’’ EP is well worth your attention if you don’t hate fun.
