[Audio] Starcadian reMixes John Carpenter’s ‘Vortex’

 

Starcadian

As synth and soundtrack fans will do doubt be aware, horror mastermind and creepy synth noodler John Carpenter as about to release an album. His first non-soundtrack solo work, the album, Lost Themes is a collection of scores to imaginary movies. No stranger to the odd imaginary movie himself, Brooklyn synthesizer warrior Starcadian has taken on Lost Themes’ teaser single Vortex and dominated it with his own brand of Electro-Funk. Check it out.

Featuring additional vocals by the Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet (‘cos that baby can sing!), Starcadian’s Vortex workout is an expansive Electro powerhouse loaded with emotional beats. Revolving around a chugging bassline, this is Starcadian when he’s got one foot in the world of Electro-House, one in Nu-Disco and his eyes to the stars. Cosmic wonder with a chainsaw grind. Gritty and majestic. Let Starcadian’s reMix of Vortex inspire you into the weekend.

Chrome Canyon editing John Carpenter

CarpenterHowarth

Chrome Canyon, one of Brooklyn’s finest purveyors of vintage synth Boogie, has taken it upon himself to spice up your Halloween with a funky little re-edit of legendary master of horror, and synthesizer wizard John Carpenter’s theme from his 1978 slash-fest Halloween.

Carpenter is the undisputed king of horror synth. Halloween, Escape From New York, Assault On Precinct 13, all synth classics, with Halloween obviously being the most creepified. So what can you do with that instantly recognisable, flesh-crawling piano line and chords of dread? Well, Chrome Canyon musters up all his electronic trickery to drop a shuffling beat and cuts the track up into dancefloor sized chunks. Building and building a robotic tension until the big Disco synths drop for the finale and the track goes manic, or should that be maniac?
