Earlier this year Silhouette Music put out the Space Love EP from our friend SynthWaver Silenx. A collection of some of his finest tunes from around that time, the EP held four track worth of massive funky, space age Electro. Now it’s time to revisit Space Love, with a brand new reMix EP holding work from some of the top names on the scene.
Brooklyn synth heads Follow Me kick off the proceedings with a bouncy Italo version of the title track that delivers punchy beats and bass while managing to keep the Sci-Fi tone intact. Germany’s finest, Final DJs, bring a wonderful combination of soaring synths and infectious digital slap bass for their take on Far Far Away. Injecting the EP with an overdose of Disco, Final DJs work up a track that is electronically complex as it is soulful. 80s Stallone’s vintage 80s dancefloor workout version of Long Lost Love brings the core essence of SynthWave to the EP with wobbly chords and digital horns over an addictive Italo-esque groove. The EP leads off with a reMix of Stellar Kiss from Keenhouse. As you would expect, Keenhouse gets emotional and psychedelic with his synths, crafting a futuristic soundscape with a Jazzy twist and delivers the prefect EP closer. Easing the listener out of the heave retro beats with a glorious galactic voyage of swirling synthetic sounds.

Their reMix of Home Away From Home is probably the funkiest thing they have released to date, there’s very little of the SynthWave Final DJs in here. Instead what we are treated to is head on collision between Nu-Disco, Tropical and House. With a bassline, guitar lick and strings that are pure ‘70’s Disco and a beat and piano hook straight out of Chicago, the Final DJs mix up a slick, summery vibe that really plays with the vocals. They’ve pushed the rhythm of the chorus back a bar which makes the chorus seem more urgent, giving the laid back beach vibes a bit of drive. Guaranteed to get you moving, Final DJs mix has injected some much needed boogie into our Wednesday.
