We’ve been diggin’ Au Revoir Simone’s Erika Spring’s solo work for the last couple of months now, but this is just the icing on the cake. Here next single for Cascine, Happy At Your Gate, reMixed by Mr. Vito Aeroplane. How’s that for a team-up?
Vito bring a touch of smooth to his electronic Disco with this reMix. it’s a slick combination of bouncy House bassline, Disco groove and vintage SynthPop lead lines. The mid-tempo pace of the track, and the steady, pulsing, dancefloor sound works perfectly with Erika’s hushed vocal. The drama in Erika’s performance is heightened as Aeroplane builds and builds toward the end of the track, increasing the tension, until it breaks for the finale. Additional production from Martin Dubka.
We’ve been meaning to post this for a while now, kept forgetting, we’re only human! It comes from Cascine, need we say more? Well, yes actually seeing as ‘saying more’ is pretty much the sole reason for our existence, but we wouldn’t have to, and maybe that’s what counts. Erika Spring is, of course, one third of the amazing Au Revoir Simone and she’s gearing up to release her début, self-titled, solo EP next month.
The lead track from the EP is Hidden, a lush three minutes full of broken beats, backmasking, airy synths and piercing lead lines. It’s a beautiful cacophony over which Erika’s vocals float like wisps of familiar smoke. The kick in the ass we needed to get around to writing this comes in the form of a new reMix from Nashville Chillwave guru Jensen Sportag who swoops in like a soft focus Michael Jackson to lay some Chilled Funk and reverb washed groove over the track. With a killer bassline and and some slick string verging on the Disco, Sportag has pulled off another killer tune.
