As featured in Edwin Van Cleef’s recent mix, here is Chad Valley’s reMix of The Sound Of Arrows’ new single, ‘M.A.G.I.C.’.
The track is pretty magical (no pun intended) as it is, but Chad Valley makes the song appear otherworldly with subtle vocal manipulation, reverb washed melodies and a deep, resonant, early 90’s House bassline. A complete departure from the uplifting EuroPop of the original, Chad’s reMix a soothing, hypnotic experience and a perfect compliment to both the single version and the video.

Dreamtrak’s reMix of ‘Now that I’m Real (How Does It Feel?)’, the lead track from Chad Valley’s ‘Equatorial Ultravox’ EP is a piece of pure electronic euphoria.
ElectroPop heaven is what’s on offer here, making the Chillwave riffs of the original into 80’s-esque gold. Keeping the space and depth of the original’s vocals but reigning the track to make it more dancefloor friendly Dreamtrak delivers a sunrise tune that will make you love the world.

Chad Valley is defiantly shaping up to be an artist to keep and ear on this year.
The latest reMix from the Indie-ElectroPopper is of Brighton sextet The Go! Team latest track ‘Buy Nothing Day’ which features vocals from Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. Chad turns the track into a sweeping synth epic, his Bedroom pop sounding slightly more grandiose than usual. Densely layered and perfectly mixed this reMix is guaranteed to uplift anyone’s day. Alongside the likes of I Am Noxious, Chad Valley is showing that the UK can easily compete with the current crop of Us BedroomPop artists. Penguin Prison watch out!

What are Ensoniq up to these days? The ESQ-1 was an awesome bit of kit! Anyway…
Chad Valley is the alter ego of Oxford’s Hugo Manuel and he’s about to drop his first EP on Cascine next month.
The track that had me wondering about Ensoniq is ‘Ensoniq Funk’. Taken from the EP, it’s an impressive début. A densely layered slice of electronic Pop where shimmering riffs, horn samples and distant vocals intertwine throughout a track with a distinct Disco flavour.
It’ll defiantly be an EP worthy of further investigation.

‘Ensoniq Funk’ is take from Chad Valleys forthcoming EP on Cascine, released on 16th November
