[Audio] A charity X-Mas EP from the Electronic Rumors gang!

 

MULLET_CS

Hey readers. A couple of weeks ago my father passed away, you may have seen a lull in posts. When all was done and dusted I felt the need to do something, both to commemorate my Dad and to give a little to an organization that helps both sufferers and carers, especially at a time like Christmas. So X-Mas Rumors was born. Four artists from the label kindly gave me their time and talent (and hopefully had a little fun) cover four beloved Christmas tunes.

Soundtrack your Christmas party, and do a little good in the process, with this new EP loaded with electronic cover versions of classic Christmas songs. Four of electronic rumors’ finest artists have generously devoted their time to covering their favourite Christmas songs for X-Mas Rumors, and EP whose entire earnings with be going to the Alzheimer’s Society.

electronic rumors newcomer (and Vulture Music veteran) Kids At Midnight work some kind of silky magic on Wham!’s Last Christmas, while the 60’s classic Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love gets an energetic retro ElectroPop re-envisioning by SynthWaver Let Em Riot. New York ElectroPoppers She’s The Queen deliver their upbeat take on Stevie Wonder’s classic What Christmas Means To Me and the EP plays out with electronic experimentalist beaumont intricate take on Little Drummer Boy.

The EP is being released with a ‘pay what you want’ price mark, with 100% of the revenue going to the Alzheimer’s Society we’re hoping people are full of Christmas cheer and give generously.

[Audio] beaumont’s ‘Milton’s Party’

beaumont_thumb

Hot on the heels of his reMix of Echoes’ Second Best on electronic rumors Volume 1: The reMix EP, Milton’s Party is the latest offering from Australian electronic experimentalist beaumont, or should that be Australian Italo maverick? Milton’s Party sees beaumont channelling a little Moroder into his madcap Disco. While we’re still waiting for the awesome Vampire to be released, Milton’s Party offered more than enough retro Funk to keep us going.

There’s hint of thinks in this track that we haven’t heard from beaumont, not in a while at least. Loaded with 80s Funk, big vintage stabs and a proper Italo groove Milton’s Party bobs and weaves around multiple melodies, combining beaumont’s musical flair with a nostalgic electronic Disco sound. Wrapped up in a major dancefloor weapon, this one’s got a bit of everything. Be prepared to be unable to resist.

beaumont’s ‘Vampire’ reMixes

beaumont

Well, this came as a bit of surprise. After months and months holed up with canned food and an impressive arsenal of firearms (we imagine), our boy beaumont has finally poked his head above ground just long enough to throw a couple of musical grenades our way. It seems that whist in self imposed exile he’s actually been getting his groove on with New York based singer Elle Pierre for what sound like it;s going to be a massive single.

It’s called Vampire, and right now we have reMixes from England’s finest Clancy and Detroit rocker BeatLoaf. Clancy delivers a slick-as-hell House tune. Everything about Clancy’s version is really warm and enveloping. Rich bass and subtle organ give this mix it’s base leaving loads of room for the Italo-esque arpeggios and the breezy piano hook. With a contemporary Disco production, but a nostalgic mid-9-0s House vibe, Clancy’s mix is a dream in the headphones. BeatLoaf keeps the original’s vocals more intact and works the track into a smooth dance track with an R&B flavour.  What starts off with a grinding urban beat ends up a sweeping House track before dropping back into something more ecclectic. This has definitely whetted out appetites for new material from beaumont.

beaumont reMixes Rüfüs

rufus

beaumont takes time out from his inventing a new genre of slowed down, laid back Nu-Disco to return to his Dreamwave/Nu-Disco roots with his new reMix of Rüfüs’ ‘We Left’.

Proving without a shadow of a doubt that he still has the skills to rock the Disco, this reMix is a full-on solid electronic epic with it’s feet on the dancefloor and it’s head in the clouds. It’s got all the right 80’s cues, and all the right Nu-Disco cues, in all the right places. beaumont’s sweeping phased synths work particularly well with the track’s vocals. The reMix features on On The Fruit’s release of ‘We Left’, as a single, alongside reMixes from Ride The Universe and SymbolOne .

♫ Rüfüs – We Left (beaumont reMix)

‘We Left’ is out 25th of July on On the Fruit Records

Clancy’s ‘Panther’ EP

clancy

One of the UKs most exciting up-and-coming producers Clancy drops his new EP today, his first for ‘the ever-awesome Holographic People’.

The ‘Panther EP’ sees Clancy at his Dreamwave finest with three original tracks and a couple of reMixes. The title track is five minutes of synthesizer bliss. Almost Futurecop!-esque in it’s ElectroPoppiness, ‘Panther’ is retro synth perfection, from the digital bass to the uplifting 80’s chords, this is how it should be done. Noting about ‘Panther’ doesn’t make you feel good. ‘4000 Shards’ is more designed to make you move. Ironically it growls a bit more than ‘Panther’. Definitely a nightdrive of a tune, ‘4000 shards’ is the cop film to ‘Panthers’ teen movie. The trilogy is made up by ‘Bite The Lightning’, a pure retro dancefloor workout that is nothing short of genius, and easily cements Clancy’s place amongst the top producers making Nu-Disco/Dreamwave today.

♫ Clancy – Panther

♫ Clancy – 4000 Shards

reMixes are supplied by beaumont and StardonE. beaumont treats us to a nice clash between the ChipTune Disco sounds we are used to from him and a laidback piano led vibe that has us looking forward to his début EP for Holographic more than ever. Korea’s awesome StardonE add a little of his Cosmic Disco to the mix with a reMix epic reMix that plays the EP out on a high.

Beaumont’s ‘Skyline’

Hot on the heels of his last offering, ‘City Meets Soldier’, Melbourne producer Beaumont keeps his momentum going with a brand new single, ‘Skyline’.

In a kind of evolutionary cycle Beaumont started out producing Disco and Electro tunes, then he applied his skills in their area to more atmospheric, soundtrack-like pieces, and now with ‘Skyline’ he brings the beat back but retains the epic and evocative nature of his recent tunes. ‘Skyline’ is almost a feel-good antidote to ‘City Meets Soldier’’s intensity. It’s the hope for the future in the face of adversity, the picking yourself up after a fall, the sunrise after a night spent chewing your face off. It’s got some corking reMixes too!

♫ Beaumont – Skyline (Beaumont reMix)

Show Your Shoe and Fiero step up to the plate for reMix duties with Show Your Shoe getting his extreme Funk on in a way that will surely solidify his reputation as one of the most talented producers of Electro/Disco/Funk around, while the Firero boys round of the EP by bringing more smooth than you can handle with some seriously majestic Dreamwave sounds.

Show Your Shoe reMixes EP with Beaumont

Show Your Shoe’s recent ‘Technik City’ EP had had a reMix makeover.

‘Technik City Revisited’, currently a Juno exclusive, holds four versions of tracks from the original EP featuring work from Coupons, Flashworx, Mitch Torino and includings this version of ‘Jet Skiing’ by Beaumont. The man gets deep and dark with the rhythm section in a slow, brooding track that threatens to suffocate you but give you glimmers of hope with sparking lead lines and Disco licks. There really needs to be a genre name for Beaumont’s slowed down Disco and Dreamwave. DiscoStep? Dubwave? LOL

Beaumont’s début EP

In a really fucked up coincidence it is exactly two years, to the day, that we first posted about Beaumont (well, his first solo post, if you discount a post about a Ladyhawke reMix), and it’s this day that he chooses to release his début EP!

So, what’s changed in two years? Well, we’ve seen the man develop and hone his studio skills, we’ve seen a maturing and evolution in the musicality of his work, but he’s never really strayed too far from his vision. Even in his early work you can hear hints that where he is now is where he was headed all along. The mixing up of Nu-Disco, Dreamwave and ChipTune that became Beaumont’s trademark always had a certain epicness to it that has now found a distinctive voice in his current Downtempo-Dreamwave (for want of a better description) output. ‘City Meets Soldier’ is an eight minute musical narrative that slides from mood to mood, kept in check with a solid groove. These seems to be seven distinctive parts, or chapters, to the track that each have something to say individually whilst advancing the overall arrangement. Now, I have no idea whether that’s just me reading too much into the track, but it’s pretty sophisticated songwriting and would appear to be the culmination of Beaumont’s recent interest in more atmospheric and evocative music.

It’s also pretty easy on the ears!

Beaumont (Feat. Ill Collins) – City Meets Soldier (Original Mix)

There’s four reMixes on the EP, by the likes of Shelby Gray, Farfetched Clancy and Ren Riz. The latter two take the track straight back to the dancefloor. Ren drops a slightly Acid flavoured Electro-House track, the kind that completely absorbs you on the dancefloor while Clancy seriously raised the bar with what is probably my favourite reMix on the EP that hold onto Beaumont’s epic feel and wraps it in some sweet sweet Disco.

Beaumont (Feat. Ill Collins) – City Meets Soldier (Clancy reMix)

Beaumont (Feat. Ill Collins) – City Meets Soldier (Ren Riz reMix)

Right, Reader, you have a choice now, and I’m trusting you as a person of integrity and taste to make the right decision. You can pick up the ‘City Meets Soldier’ EP two ways. Beaumont is giving it away, all five tracks, on his SoundCloud as 128kbps mp3s, or you can grab the whole EP in it’s full 320kbps nuanced format for a paltry $4 from Beaumont’s Bandcamp site.

You know what to do.
