Unique American Rave/Pop/Hip-Hop duo Starrset have got one of our favourite reMixers of the moment Diamond Cut to tackle their track ‘My Face’.
The original is a Rave-Rock-Rap part tune which Diamond Cut throw out the window before grabbing their synths (yay!). This is tight as anything, the beat and arpeggios command your attention, you can feel the whole song just building to the soaring synth solo kicking in. I love this stuff!
We’ve been very impressed with many of Diamond Cut’s recent reMixes so when a new one hits the electronic rumors inbox it always makes us sit up and pay attention.
Here he has turned his skills to Lo-Fi bedroom popsters The Candle Thieves and their track ‘We’re All Gonna’ Die (Have Fun)’ turning the quirky Indie-Pop track into a smooth ElectroPop journey that carries you away on sweeping synths whist retaining the intimate feel of the original. Great stuff!
Australian Indie-Electro darlings Cassette Kids are poised to take us here in the UK over as they make their début on our fair shores with three London gigs in February and the release of a new single ‘Lying Around’.
Taken from the forthcoming album ‘Nothing On TV’ (which has been produced by Van She’s Michael DiFrancesco!) the single also features reMixes from Diamond Cut & Sharam Jey, who both turn the poppy Indie track into club stormers. Diamond Cut, who we’ve featured a couple of times before, and never fail to impress, turn in our favourite mix with their sweeping Nu-Disco epic.
December 1st is a date for your diary, as on that day London’s Fear Of Tigers is dropping his new album…for free!
The album, ‘Cossus Snufsigalonica’, will be 10 tracks of, we can expect, original, retro-flavoured, Electro-House that you can sample with this tune ‘The Adventures Of Pippi Longstrump’. It’s a full on, driving, uplifting slice of Pop-Electro-House with a kinda’ end-of-the-movie finale vibe to it.
Diamond Cut step up to the reMix plate and deliver a chilled, spacey, synth rework.
The week in Bangers: While electronic rumors isn’t strictly an Electro-House blog, we do cover a lot of Electro-House that crosses over in to our realm. So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…
