Bright Light Bright Light new single, new reMix, new competition

Bright Light Bright Light

Next week sees the release of the new single from Welsh ElectroPop sensation Bright Light Bright Light. Long time readers will know we’ve been following Rod’s career since the ‘olden days’, in the last two years he’s released some of the biggest, slickest, ElectroPop tracks out there. Every one of BLx2’s tracks to date have been modern classics, each one addictively catchy, and each one increasingly indulging Rod’s love of all things ‘90’s.

And ‘Waiting For The Feeling’ revels in it’s retro-ness. From it’s Darude-esque bass riff to the big Piano House riff, that could have come straight off MTV Europe circa 1994, it’s a celebration of the ‘90’s. A celebration of classic songwriting too, Rod’s vocal chops and his ability to write perfect Pop hook both shine through in the single, you’ll be humming it for days. Bright Light Bright Light’s love of the ‘90’s culminates in the reMix package for ‘Waiting For The Feeling’, it’s like a collection of all the names you found in the reMix credits on singles in the back then, I didn’t even know these people were still alive! K Klass put in an appearance. K Klass! Apparently they are still around and knocking out pretty awesome reMixes from the sound of their deep, almost tribal mix. And Trouser Enthusiasts! His reMix, which we are exclusively premièring below, is his first in a decade. Trouser Enthusiasts work for the likes of Sunscreem (Particularly), Saint Etienne and Pet Shop Boys we’re big parts of my life during that period, it really is awesome that Rod got him back in the studio to work on this. He’s lost none of his his flair, the mix is actually pretty ‘Trouser Enthusiasts’ (if that makes sense) but, despite being heavily ‘90’s sounding, really doesn’t sound dated. Massive and majestic, this reMix hopefully sees a return to production for Trouser Enthusiasts. A single this catchy will surely get Bright Light Bright Light the attention he deserves so much.

Google Music Competition

google-music-beta

Have you tried Google Music yet? I’ve been playing with the big G’s cloud music solution for the last couple of days and I’m pretty impressed.

I’m not exactly what I‘m going to do with it, I can already stream audio from my home PC with Audiogalaxy, but it’s a really nice media player. If it was a little more advanced (customisable columns in Song view, advanced tagging facilities etc…) and it could play local files I might even consider making it my default music player. And it’s nice to have some tunes in the cloud, with a nice interface, for the rare occasions my home PC isn’t on.

Anyhoo, Google Music is currently in a close beta state right now, and invites are hard to come by, but we have two to give away to interested readers.

To win yourself one you need to be located in the US and have a valid gMail address. Just follow us, @electronicrumor on Twitter, and tweet the following:

S’up @electronicrumor. I could really do with winning one of your Google Music invites. Hook me up! http://goo.gl/AF7Xa

I’ll run it ‘til Monday 22nd August and announce the winners that day. Two entrants will be chosen at random and contacted, entrants must be following @electronicrumor AND be open to receiving direct messages on Twitter, any winner who does not fill these two criteria will be passed over.

Get tweeting!”
