LA IndiePoppers Capital Cities’ Safe And Sound is getting quite long in the tooth now, we first wrote about it back in June 2011. The track has been give a new lease of life by French prodigy Monsieur Adi who delivers a little bit of his old style Electro Disco on this one. We’re not sure if this is a recent reMix, or something that’s been sat in the vaults for a while, either way we’re glad it’s seeing the light of day.
Adi works his magic, as we would expect him to, with grinding Electro riffs and slick Disco grooves mixed up with an addictive horn section. Morphing the song from summery Indie jam into Majestic epic, Adi’s reMix injects the track with a certain amount of drama amidst the Filtered Disco vibes, the vocals taking on a new energy set against the repeating fanfare. This is classic Monsieur Adi, a track to get excited about.

Capital Cities album, In A Tidal Wave of Mystery, is out now.
In their latest release, Californian ElectroPoppers Capital Cities step up for reMix duties for Frenchman Ernest Saint Laurent and his Tatiana Heintz featuring track ‘Offering’. The result is some blissed out sunrise Pop.
Carried along on the vocals of Tatiana Heintz from Franco-German Folk duo Okou who creates an uplifting, deep mood that allows Capital Cities to get a little Ballieric as they mix things up. Throwing a bit of that beach vibe into the mix they churn up a deep, warm Housey, ElectroPop track that envelopes you like a comfortable blanket. Full of rich synth pads and a Funk fuelled arpeggiated bassline, Capital Cities capture the mood perfectly.

The original of ‘Offering’ appears on Ernest Saint Laurent latest album ‘Rollercoaster’.
LA Indie-Dreamwave duo Capital Cities have become a bit of a mainstay here on electronic rumors in the last couple of years. We covered their latest single ‘Kangaroo Court’ back in March but now the EP is out it;s time to check out a reMix from one of the most musically talented Nu-Disco producers working today. Shook.
Shook channels all his ability into capturing the Funky side of Capital Cities home town. this is a huge slick of pure LA Funk and the Dutch producer works it like he was a native. this kind of pure groove is Shook at his best, it’s where his musicality is allows to shine though and it’s the reason people are lining up to work with him. The original’s upbeat Indie-Disco is reined in and told to ‘chill the fuck out’ resulting in some amazing, slick, west cost vibes. Thick Moogy basses and twisting Disco licks are the order of the day here.
Capital Cities are back with summer good time summer grooves for the approaching good weather.
The LA duo’s Dreamwave leaning blend of Indie-Electro not comes complete with a brass section with only adds to the laid back, no-cares-in-the-world, party vibe. ‘Kangaroo Court’ is four minutes of pure sunshine gold. The synths are playful, the vocals quietly anthemic mic, and the horns are just a wave for the listener to ride. We’ve not had much in the way of Indie-Electro classics this year, hopefully this monster from Capital Cities is just the beginning.
LA’s ElectroPop duo Capital Cities have dropped this awesome slice of summery good vibes.
These beard enthusiasts have their début EP coming out this months and if ‘Safe And Sound’ is anything to go by this good times from here on in. It three minutes of ElectroPop wonder that’s so feel good that the addition of perky trumpets seems a bit redundant, but welcome nonetheless.
