[Audio] Joe Goddard & Boris Dlugosch


Joe Goddard

Some deeply funky piano vibes right now from Hot Chip and The 2 Bears’ Joe Goddard new track, Step Together. His second solo outing this year features Boris Dlugosch and, like She Burns before it, once gain comes from the forthcoming Taking Over EP, out this week on Goddard’s own Greco-Roman imprint

Like the previous track, Step Together is a smooth, if a little left-field, Deep House groover with ElectroPop overtones. Rolling along on a hypnotic piano riff, Goddard and Dlugosch weave an intricate tapestry of sparking synths and pleasing vibes. Goddard’s soft spoken vocals, and message of togetherness, surfs the beat, flowing across the track like water, tying everything together into relaxed summer soundtrack. Goddard had admitted the EP is “an attempt to make synthesizers sound nice”, well, synthesizers already sounded nice, but his efforts are appreciated.

Joe Goddard

It’s been a while since Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard’s last solo offering, 2011’s Gabriel, although he has been pretty busy with The 2 Bears. Now he’s broken ground on his new release, the Taking Over EP, to be released later this year on Greco-Roman. this first track to see the light of day is a luscious, deep, electronica tune featuring the vocals of Mara Carlyle.

Introducing itself as a lazy, dreamy, Deep House rolling track, resonating with sporadic electronic pulses and rumbling synth bass, revelling in Goddard’s skills in both Pop and Experimental electronic musics. Carlyle’s vocals provide an uplifting at times, soulful at others, croon over spitting 808 beats and truly otherworldly synth work. We would expect no less from Goddard.

[Audio] Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard reMixes Arlissa


The latest artist on the Alt Pop R&B train is Arlissa. Having recently scored a hit with a track featuring NAS, she’s about to release her début solo single. Stick And Stones is actually a pretty endearing slice of ElectroFolkSoul, that tends to get stuck in your head, and comes backed with reMixes from MJ Cole, Friction, Wookie and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. Not bad for her first single.

Goddard whips up a little of Hot Chip’s quirky ElectroPop magic into the the track. Replacing the tracks bombastic Folk with shrill synths and toy town beats, Goddard reins in the song somewhat, allowing it to become less of a grandiose performance, more of a personal affair. A bouncy synth bassline follows the vocals like a faithful dog while all around them shining keys ring out. All-in-all, a really nice experience.

Joe Goddard reMixes Tyson

Hot Chip man Joe Goddard is on a roll this year, and surely the busiest guy in UK Electro. From Hot Chip, to 2Bears, to his solo stuff he just continually churns out to quality electronics.

Electro Quirk-Popster  Tyson is the recipient of Mr. Goddard’s latest work. The original is transformed into a deep, abstract, slice of Pop House with just the right amount of Disco to keep it funky while Tyson warbles over the top.

Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard reMixes Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs


Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard is on the reMix for the new Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs single, and really leaves his mark on the track.

The single, a re-release of ‘Garden’, comes fresh with a new crop of reMixes. the Hot Chip/2Bears wash on the track is quite evident and the combination of Goddard’s trademark deep grooves and light toytown Indie synths with TEED’s introspective vocals seems like a match made in heaven.
