[Audio] Joypopp’s ‘D-Day’

 

Joypopp

As we reported yesterday, French SynthWave producer Daroc contributed a track to the French Le Burgundy Paris L’Album, but it wasn’t alone on the record. Daroc other project, as member of ElectroPop two piece Joypopp also turned-in a brand new tune for the collection. Their particular brand of sweet atmospheric SynthPop since last years Addictions album.

Their new track, D-Day, is a heady buzzing synths and dreamy vocals, with just a sprinkling of guitar. Alix’s siren vocals drifting across the magic swirl of sounds to instil a mood of smoky mystery with a hint of enticement and a hint of foreboding. A nice retro feel is provided by vintage synth sounds, it’s one of those songs that stick with you after you’ve finished listening. This truly is DreamPop.

Joypopp’s Addictions

Joypopp

Today sees the release of French duo Joypopp’s brand new album. We are really pleased to have our hands on a full length release from these two. We’ve been waiting since last year’s Binary release of their Ecstatic EP, a rich, emotional collection of ElectroPop tracks that was one of the highlights of they year. Now, Addictions brings us ten tracks, some new, some old, of dreamy SynthPop goodness.

Kicking off with the shimmering catchy Domination, Addictions is an album of sweeping moods and rich, haunting electronics. Sensation is one of the quieter tracks on the album, but sums up Joypopp’s manifesto. Blissful vintage ElectroPop with a slight nod to contemporary Electro. Sensation sweeps you up in it’s wake and carries you along in the beauty of both Alix’s vocals and David (Daroc)’s symphony of synthetics. Things pick up tempo for Caress, with almost Italo overtones and the Synth-Rock groove of Pleasure. Inner World has got ‘single’ written all over it, upbeat and catchy it’s a track that shows of Alix and Davis talents at the fullest, rich and emotional SynthPop music. Desire was one of the tracks, featured on the Ecstatic EP, that made us fall in love with Joypopp in the first place and is a great example of how Joypopp are able to combine the hauntingly beautiful and the grittily electronic with seeming ease and an infectious vibe. It’s EP mate Volupté also puts in an appearance, arguable the best track on the EP. Elsewhere the EP features the full-on French-Electro/Italo workout of Selfishness and the Ladytron-esque Indie-Electro of Vanity and Skin Taste. Whereas there is a lot going on on this album, a lot of different influenced, Joypopp tie it all together nicely with their unique sound and make the record feel more like a retro music journey than a collection of songs. This is one record from 2013 that is very highly recommended.

Joypopp release début EP on Binary

Yesterday saw the release of Joypopp’s début EP, ‘Ecstatic’, on Binary Records.

It’s an EP bursting at the seems with four original tracks and three reMixes. We’ve already covered two of the original tunes on the EP, ‘Desire’ and ‘Volupté’, both of which really whet our appetite for more Joypopp. ‘Nostalgic’ and ‘Six To Six’ are more of the same top quality analog ElectroPop from the French duo. With their big Sci-Fi soundtrack synths and sweet female vocals, the Joypopp combination is defiantly a winner. ReMixes on the EP come courtesy of Night Drugs and these two from Girlfriend Records head honcho Sferro and Binary’s RoboPop™ main man Short Circuit. Sferro turns in a suitably retro slice of ElectroPop with a laidback groove, deep bass and awesome 80’s melodies. Short Curcuit’s reMix takes the track in the opposite direction, it’s a heavy mid-tempo club track that sees SC moving towed an almost Justice mix of rock riff-esq chainsaw synths and Disco drums.

More new Joypopp!

Another fresh track from Joypopp’s forthcoming EP!

Joypopp are Binary’s latest signing, a French duo who create wonderfully atmospheric, yet danceable, ElectroPop music. ‘Desire’ proves that the EP’s lead track, ‘Volupté’ which came to light at the beginning of the month, wasn’t a fluke. A marvellous futuristic love story wrapped up in soaring analog synths and emotional vocals. It’s easy to see why Binary snapped up these two, there is something special about the Joypop tracks that have surfaced so far, a real depth of feeling and some real musicianship. Great sounds too.

♫ Joypopp – Desire

Joypopp’s ‘Ecstatic’ EP is out 9th May on Binary and features reMixes from Binary’s own Short Circuit, Night Drugs and Sferro.

Binary welcomes Joypopp into the fold

Barely a week goes by, recently, with out something exciting happening over at Binary HQ.

This week sees the announcement of another new signing, French duo Joypopp. Releasing their début EP, titled ‘Ecstatic’, in May Joypopp have dropped the first track to give you a taster of what to expect. ‘Volupté’ is very French, in the best possible way. Musically it’s a Jarre-esq Sci-Fi synth epic. A mid-tempo ElectroPop groove provides backing for layers of intertwining analog melodies that would make Jarre, Vangelis or Tangerine Dream proud. Top that with the sweetest female vocals and you have something both futuristically ethereal and summer sexy.

I love the solo in this track!

Joypopp’s ‘Ecstatic’ EP is out 9th May on Binary with reMixes from Binary’s own Short Circuit, Night Drugs and Girlfriend Records head honcho Sferro.
