Friday Bridge & Nicolas Makelberge


Friday Bridge are a Sweedish SynthPop duo that mix in a little Baroque in to their Pop, they’ve been around for about half a decade but I know them from their team-up with Johan Agebjörn on his ‘Casablanca Nights’ album. I can actually find very little information about them ,and even less about their newest collaborative partner Nicolas Makelberge. I can only assume it’s because they are actually deep cover government operatives with some hidden agenda who are only masquerading as makers of awesome ElectroPop.

So that their cover isn’t blown, lets just play along and hope no-one shoots/stabs/poisons us. This new single, ‘Dark Heart’ is a bright shiny slice of DiscoPop that Friday Bridge claimed in their email contains some “saucy “oh’s”” , they’re not wrong. The thing is chock full of saucy “oh’s” and smooth dancefloor friends basslines. It’s actually a pretty unique combination between sexy Disco grooves and that Scandinavian iciness you usually find in more experimental outfits like The Knife. Here, that slightly razors-edge feel is interestingly applied to more traditional, friendly, ElectroPop and the end result it something brand new. Disco grooves, Pop sheen and an edge of danger. We’re definitely now looking forward to hearing more from these guys new album. On an unrelated note, I might start producing a line of canned spaghetti hoops in tomato sauce called ‘saucy oh’s’.

The week in Bangers: 07:06:09

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…

This weeks club roundup starts off with another reMix of La Roux’s ‘Bulletproof’ by tEPr and a Vitalic reMix of Birdy Nam Nam’s ‘The Parachute Ending’. Friendly Fires get reworked by Stuart Price A.K.A. Thin White Duke and Death To The Throne take on a Lykke Li cover of a Kings Of Leon song. Fredrick Carlsson reMixes Jonathan Johansson as Johan Agebjörn does for Friday Bridge. The Preset’s K.I.M tackles Bag Raiders’ ‘Turbo Love’ and the forthcoming Simian Mobile Disco single is given the treatment by Naum Gabo. Enjoy!
