Germany’s première SynthWave outfit Final DJs have turned in another one of their monster, euphoric, slices of synthesizer gold. This time of target of the Sci-Fi workout is the Southern Hemisphere’s most mystical ElectroPop duo, Empire Of the Sun. Final DJs have got to grips with their track, Wandering Star, and turned it into a cinematic synth masterpiece.
There is some absolutely gorgeous sounds in this reMix. At it’s heart the tune is a deft mix of SynthWave and Nu-Disco, pretty standard dancefloor fare, but coupled with Final DJs’ flair for vintage synths and soaring solos the tune is elevated to a higher place. A hands-in-the-air moment for the Dreamwave crowd, this tune should be soundtracking peak time at retro synth nights across the globe.
The next single from Australian ElectroPop characters Empire Of the Sun’s second album, Ice On The Dune, is DNA. The big-synthed anthem is due out later this month and comes stuff full of huge reMix from the likes of Calvin Harris, Brodinski and Alex Metric. The latter of whom has uploaded his version to his SoundCloud page so we can all grab a tasty advance listen.
The original’s massive ElectroPop is somewhat tempered, and reined in by Metric, instead he concentrates on creating a smooth vibe. It’s an almost Dreamwave mood this reMix has got, that’s counterpointed with a compelling dancefloor beat, making it both a call-to-dance and something enriching for your emotions. This one should definitely be in everyone crate, it’s a proper weapon.
♫ Empire Of The Sun – DNA (Alex Metric reMix)
Empire Of The Sun’s DNA is released 24th September.
Fresh from their sterling work on Chela’s Romanticise, Australian Indie-Electro outfit Gold Fields have turned their attention to Empire Of the Sun’s recent comeback single Alive, to give an already euphoric tune a bouncy, sunkissed, House going over.
Ready for lazy summer days and afternoons by the Pool, Gold Fields version of the tune adds lush synths and big filter sweeps to the mix. Playing around with the vocals a little, this mix slinks along in a laid back, synth bliss, fashion until the mid-way point when some seriously slick jazzy muted trumpet gets added to the mix, playing out the rest of the track in style and giving it a Balearic flavour.
While we’re all sitting around twiddling our thumbs waiting for the highly anticipated (by us anyhow) sophomore album from Australian ElectroPop duo Empire Of the Sun, they’ve just announced something that will tide us over for a bit. Next Tuesday the first single from the record, Ice On The Dune, will be released.
Titled Alive, the new single drops on Tuesday 16th ahead of the album who release date has also been announced. Ice On The Dune is due to hit stores on 14th June. We weren’t even sure there would be a second Empire Of The Sun Album, so all this news has made our morning. Really excited to hear what the duo have come up with.
If you were anywhere our Google+ page last night you would have seen us get all excited about this teaser trailer for Australian Indie-ElectroPoppers Empire Of the Sun’s long, long, long awaited second album, Ice On The Dune.
The clip it titled Discovery, heralds the duos follow up to 2009’s amazing Walking On A Dream. The and is suitably cinematic trailer has a taste of what to expect, musically, in it’s closing moments. It sounds awesome.
Empire Of The Sun’s Ice On The Dune is due to drop in June.
Empire Of The Sun are often reMixed, some good, some mediocre. When you have a name like The Golden Filter who have repeatedly dropped top quality Disco gems you know you’re in for one of the good ones.
The Golden Filter bring a little of their ‘Sold Gold’ magic to the table. Their dreamy Electro Disco seems a perfect fit with Empire Of The Sun’s track.
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…
‘Huge’ is the best way to describe ‘Disko’, the début single from London producer Burns.
Not without reason did Annie Mac name him as ‘one to watch in 2009’, Burns music is obviously influenced by Ed Banger Records and French House but pulls it in a UK party direction. ‘Disko’ is a Disco killer!
