It’s a meeting of minds in the heart of Chicago. Gemini Club and Hey Champ! should, by now, be well known to readers of electronic rumors and I think, generally, they’ve done the world a favour and unleashed a mighty soundclash on us!
Gemini Club’s recent single ‘Ghost’ gets the Hey Champ! treatment and winds up a chilled Nu-Disco jam that just slides out of the speakers, even when the vocals are being cut-up.
Gemini Club’s take on Hey Champ!’s oft-reMixed ‘Cold Dust Girl’ is an 8 minute electronic epic that never once gets boring. A head on collision between Nu-Disco and Indie-Electro, the track takes a turn for the heart attack inducing at the 4:40 mark.
Erasure frontman Andy Bell is still concentrating on his, now renamed, solo work and his latest single, ‘Call On Me’ has been given the Nu-Disco funk by Hey Champ!.
It’s a nice meeting of two worlds, SynthPop new and old. Hey Champ! bring their customary, epic sounding, space Disco to Bell’s instantly recognisable voice, the end result being a subtly infectious groove with some slick vocals.
‘Neverest’ is the second single from Chicago Indie-ElectroPop act ‘Hey Champ!’s forthcoming début album ‘Star’.
Having toured with such names as Kid Cudi, Sébastian Tellier, & Passion Pit and built up quite a reputation on the music blogs this album is pretty highly anticipated. Check out Raw Man’s pumping Electro reMix of the single.
The track ‘What You Need’ (or at least the demo version of it) by Raw Man’s project, Priors, has been knocking ‘round the internet for a few months now. Finally it is getting a full reMix package release courtesy of Eye Industries and the smooth Nu-Disco ElectroPop jam some pretty sweet reworkings.
Grum just goes from strength to strength. His reMix here is more chilled than his usual production but it shows a laidback side to his work and is a solid slick of 80’s-esq electronic Funk. Hey Champ!’s take on the tune is more of a cut-up roller-Disco monster. Finally Allen Walker gives us the most straight-up dancefloor version
