The Mystic Underground’s new single

New York based ElectroPop act The Mystic Underground return this week with a brand new single, ‘Pride Of St. Marks.

Produced by Super Buddha (Debbie Harry, Rufus Wainwright, Franz Ferdinand) the track is pretty anthemic for TMU with it’s bouncing bassline and chant along chorus, defiantly worth checking out and a welcome comeback for the duo. ElectroPop with huge production, this is one track you can’t help but nod along to. The reMix package includes this mix by fellow New Yorker and THISISNOTANEXIT artist  The Dark Esquire who brings the track to a slightly darker, slightly more minimal place with the lightest of sprinklings of Post-Punk guitar.

Monarchy reMix Kylie Minogue

It was only yesterday that it was announced that the ElectroPop mystery men Monarchy would be reMixing Kylie Minogue’s next single, ‘Better Than Love’ and already we have the reMix so you lot can listen to it!

In true Monarchy style, the London Cosmic SynthPoppers have taking Kylie into space. If Kylie’s music is the sound of a Disco down on Earth, then Monarchy create the soundtrack to the Disco in the orbiting space station. Floating, zero-G, synths wash over Miss Minogue’s dreamlike vocals all held together by the their machine beats. With a pulsing bassline acting as the heartbeat of the tune this is one of the most innovative Disco or ElectroPop reMixes that I have heard in a while. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it? It’s pretty rad either way!

This is the track that should make first contact!

‘The Fear Inside’ – Brand new Frankmusik

OK, hands up, who was a little nervous about Frankmusik’s new material.

Yeah…me too.
This could have so easily been a generic rehash of one of his previous songs, a sloppy sticking to a style that has since been copied numerous times. But have no fear, ‘The Fear Inside, as débuted last night on Cherrytree Radio sounds a fresh as anything you will hear this year. Taking his trademark sound, Vincent Frank seems to have beefed things up a little. Co-written by Cherrytree’s Martin Kierszenbaum, the track has got a big old school Electro vibe going on under the Pop track that lends a kinda’ hardness to the ElectroPop.

‘The Fear Inside’ and Frankmusik’s new album are due for release in 2011.

The Human League; ‘Night People’ video premiere & Villa reMix

We told you it was coming, and now it’s here! The brand new video from SynthPop legends The Human League for their eagerly awaited new single ‘Night People’.

We’ve already let you know what we though of the single, we loved its combination of ‘Sound Of The Crowd’ style old League and an epic second half. The video does what it says on the tin, a voyeuristic look into the lives of some wildly different night people!

Still loving it when the song goes all impassioned toward the end!

As previously mentioned, amongst the reMix package is this little gem from Villa who layer the track with frantic strings and and Acid burbling to give the tune a new sense of nervous energy. If the Leagues original is the soundtrack to an amazing night out the Villa’s reMix is the soundtrack to a dark and dangerous evening!

The Human League – Night People (Villa reMix)

Night people is taken from the (almost unbearable) anticipated new album ‘Credo’ is due out in March 2011 preceded by the ‘Night People’ single.

Electrosexual & Mz. Sunday Luv

Electrosexual, who we featured on the site back in the day, had teamed up with Mz. Sunday Luv to release a brand new single.

‘I Feel Love’ is more of Electrosexual’s slightly left of centre Electro-House. Taking in influences from across the dance music board you can heard bits of Acid and Techno amongst the hypnotic Electro track. Mz. Luvs sultry vocals add a smokey, dreamlike quality to the track and a touch of danger. The B-side, ‘Play With Fire’ is more of an 80’s take on their sound with a dominant analog bassline underpinning the tune.

The Human League: ‘Night People’ is here!

The Human League are back! And they’re taking names and kicking ass!

Ever since the announcement that The League has signed to Mark Jones’ Wall Of Sound label we’ve been eagerly awaiting the fruits of that union, and here we have it! The first single from their upcoming ‘Credo’ album, ‘Night People’!

We were right in our previous assessment, there is something of ‘The Sound Of The Crowd’ about it. It’s sounding both really 80’s, and pretty contemporary too. Almost like a modern reMix of a classic The Human League track. The second half of the song is particularly epic when it evolves from early THL sounding chants to a sweeping finale.

It’s so good to have them back!

The Human League – Night People (Album Version)

‘Credo’ is due out in March 2011 preceded by the ‘Night People’ single which will feature reMixes from Cerrone, Mylo, The Emperor Machine and Villa.

Stay tuned, the video is premiering on Monday.

Fancy covering the new Mason & Róisín Murphy track?

In a world where reMix competitions have become commonplace it’s nice to see someone mixing it up a little bit.

Mason (they of the awesome track with Princess Superstar a few years ago) are releasing a new single featuring the vocal talents of none other than ElectroPop queen Róisín Murphy and to celebrate they are inviting their listeners to show off their interpretations of the track. The winner of the contest, which they are calling a ‘Refurb competition’,  will get their version released through Mason’s own Animal Language imprint. A Refurb is, in their own words “…not remixes in the usual sense but completely new interpretations of the original track done in any style that takes their fancy.”, back in the real world we call that a ‘cover version’, but semantics aside it could be a chance to have a little fun with the track.

You can listen to the original here, it’s actually a really cool tune, Róisín’s dreamlike vocals are always welcome.

♫ Mason (Feat. Róisín Murphy) – Boadicea

Entries must be submitted by 1st December to info@animal-language.com with the subject ‘Refurb Róisín’, more info on the SoundCloud page.

The ‘Boadicea’ single (featuring your cover?) will be released early March 2011.

Lindbergh Palace get the Fear Of Tigers reMix treatment

Ben from Fear Of Tigers has been far too quite lately for my liking. Of everyone making massive, retro sounding, Dreamwavey, dance tracks Fear Of Tigers are among the cream of the crop so a new FoT reMix really makes you sit up and take notice!

We featured Lindbergh Palace a while back and were pretty impressed with the Brooklyn based band. The combination of Leah Hayes vocals and Ben’s music is something special indeed! The reMix has a long rhythmic build which really pays off when the track kicks in and shows a real maturing musicality to Ben’s work.

If we did ‘track of the day’, this would be it!

Lindbergh Palace – Days Don’t Fade (Fear Of Tigers Mix)

Lindbergh Palace’s début EP is out in December, until the go check them out on MySpace and pick up some of their reMixes:

Patrick Wolf’s new single

London Pop kid Patrick Wolf is back with a new single, ‘Time Of My Life’, in December and it’s a pretty addictive slice of electronic Pop.

The singles reMixes come courtesy of, amongst others, Ceephax and Leo Zero. I think, of the whole package, the Ceephax reMix if my favourite, I dig the burbling Acid bassline, 80’s shimmering synths the old school SynthPop feel the track is given. The shuffling hi-hats are a nice touch too. Leo Zero’s mix is beat heavy, almost tribal, and deep. Stripping the song back to basics and bringing in the big square waves.
