Tigersushi boss and French electronic master Joakim has unleashed the first single from his forthcoming new album. The album’s called Tropics Of Love and is due out later in the year, before that comes On The Beach at the end of this month and will featured reMixes from CFCF and Principles of Geometry. The track is, in fact, a cover of a 1974 Neil Young track and shows off just what an ecclectic talent Joakim is.

With a moody and darker mood that we would be used to from Joakim, On The Beach is a smokey synthetic ballad. Pulsating apreggios seem to fade in and out of focus against a hazy of purcussion and haunting tones. Joakim’s modulated vocals whisper a robot’s lament against this dreamlike opus of synthetic Blues. Stick around for the saxophone solo!

Arsenal, Com Truise & Joakim


Belgian duo Arsenal’s new single arrives next week. We first featured these guys back in May 2010 and since then they’ve released a stray stream of pumping House tunes. Following on on from deep vocal House of ‘Melvin’, the new single ‘One Day At a Time’ features Mike Ladd on vocals and is loaded with some class choices in reMix talent including two of our top producers, Com Truise & Joakim.

Com Truise is, like, the public face of SynthWave. The SynthWave artist it’s cool for your Indie friends to like. So flying the flag for all things retro Electro, we always pay special attention to his tracks, and they are always mind-blowingly good. His mix of ‘One Day At a Time’ is no different. In fact it’s the highlight of the reMixes, with a funkin’ analog bassline and sweeping synths Com Truise turns the Housey vocal into something a bit more New Wave. Electro toms are just the icing on the cake in this track which boarders on electronic Soul at times. Joakim’s effort is a more sunrise affair, a bit Balearic, a bit Tropical, but with a unique rawness to it and an infectious ringing hook. The ‘One Day At  A Time’ collection also comes with Joakim’s ‘Dub’ and a version from JD Twitch Optimo, an excellent package.

Joakim’s ‘Forever Young’ video

This is the video for Joakim’s new single ‘Forever Young’.

It’s a nice bit of summer Indie-Electro introspection, Joakim says the track is “a song for all the 30-something-year old people out there”.

‘Forever Young’ is taken from the forthcoming album ‘Nothing Gold’, released 20th September on Tigersushi.
