Here’s a tasty new track from our Northern Irish homie Figure Of 8. We never know what we’re going to get with a Figure Of 8 reMix, he’s got this knack of keeping a classic Dance music core while getting pretty experimental with his tunes, and this new one of no different. It’s a reMix of Australian signer Christobel’s White Right, and it’s pretty damn absorbing.
Taking Christolbel’s already haunting vocal, Figure Of 8 crafts a moody and enigmatic tune. Powered by a solid House beat and some deft Acid riffing, the vibe of the track allows Figure Of 8 to play around with some quite evocative sounds. From the brooding electric piano to the Industrial purcussion, it really feels like a musical narrative; there’s so much going on and with so much feeling. Atmospheric vocal House at it’s finest.

Gigamesh has done it again. The Minneapolis based producer has dropped another driving slice of Synth Disco in the form of his reMix for Crystal Fighters new single, ‘You & I’. The reMix sits alongside a brooding cut from London ElectroPoppers Sunless ’97, reMixing the track taken from Crystal Fighters forthcoming new LP Cave Rave.
Gigamesh whips the track up into an arpeggio driven funky frenzy as he mixes up Italo and Disco with flair. Keeping the energy levels high, Gigamesh weaves a SynthWave style night drive tune full of punchy snyths and up beat stabs which, when coupled with Crystal Fighters vocal grown, takes on a slightly EBM, slant, but obviously with loads more groove. Sunless ‘97 go in totally the opposite direction with their version, crafting an ambient, absorbing, soundscape for the track. Utilising Dub techniques and quirky synths sounds, Sunless ‘97 deliver a track that is the night to Gigamesh’s day.
