[MP3] Jupiter reMixes Lafayette

Lafayette

Just two days after their crazy good Yan Wagner reMix, Amazing French DiscoPop duo Jupiter are back with another four and a half minutes of quirky, electronic, grooves. This time it’s in the form of a reMix for fellow French act Lafayette , and his track Mauvaise Mine.

This is all about the most infectious synth bassline you’ll have heard in a while. The bassline bounced along, powering the track like a rubber engine, it’s elastic core funking it;s way into your heart. Add to this a wash of bright snyths and wicked Disco licks and you have another killer tune from Jupiter, who are on such a roll these last twelve months we can’t help but wonder if they can really so no wrong?

[Audio] Jupiter reMix Yan Wagner

Yan Wagner

French producer Yan Wagner’s recent Forty Eight Hours album didn’t leave out MP3 player for very long in the latter half of 2012. A Housey, ElectroPop opus that deserved wider attention. Yesterday the single Changed from the album was released, and alongside reMixes from Arnaud Rebotini, The Hacker and Tristesse Contemporaine sits this version from one of our favourite ElectroPop duos, Jupiter.

Jupiter get busy with their playful DiscoPop style all over the track. Their now trademark bouncy bass is at the fore of the track, providing a rock solid, funky, bedrock for layers of spikey tones and cosmic synths to dance around the tracks four and a half minutes. A stark contrast to Wagner’s deadpan, Factory-esque style, this meeting of styles works infinitely better than it should, more power to Jupiter for pulling it off. By the time the reedy synth solo kicks in you can;t help but be totally hooked.

Jupiter’s ‘Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman)’, with Little Boots, Punks Jump Up and Zimmer

Jupiter

Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman), the title track from awesome French ElectroPop duo Jupiter’s début album is getting s single release this week, in all it’s Moog Funk glory. It’s accompanied by an absolutely stunning reMix package.

It;s hard to say Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman) was one of the standouts of the album, when the album contained nearly one-hundred percent killer tracks, but it certainly was one of the tracks that sticks in your head, with it’s twisted P-Funk bassline and infectiously catchy chorus. It’s the prefect mix of sweet ElectroPop and warm French Disco. Our girl Little Boots delivers a majestic reMix that mixes up a deep 90s House vibe with a few Cosmic elements. Vicky brings a hypnotic dancefloor groove, layered with and uplifting piano hook and some great robo-vocoding. Punks Jump Up go down the warped Disco route with their reMix, the funky squelch bass powering the track along and commanding you to dance amidst the piercing synth stabs. Belgian angled Disco-meister Zimmer takes us down a Kraftwerk meets Moroder road with his take on the track. A deep electronic, at times Acidic pulse, that belies some seriously beautiful melodies.

Jupiter reMixes Midnight Magic

Midnight Magic

Brooklyn Indie-Disco orchestra Midnight Magic released the track Calling Out back in April as part of their What The Eyes Can’t See mini album. Now the live analog funk track has been given a new lease of life by Parisian ElectroPopsters Jupiter, who bring their unique musical slant to that track, and life everything they touch the reMix comes off sounding effortlessly cool and quirky as hell.

Dropping straight in with a 909 beat, we are soon treated to Jupiter’s own brand of Disco wrung through a C64 as the French duo add a little ChipTune to their eclectic mixing bowl of sounds. Giving the track a nice vintage buzz, and playing with the vocals until the become another instrument, Jupiter drag the track straight to the dancefloor, layering more and more elements until Calling Out becomes a retro dance frenzy. One again Jupiter have proven they aren’t afraid to go against the grain, mix things up a little, and just have fun with their reMixes.

Jupiter reMixed by DiscoRazor

Jupiter

The Jupiter momentum just doesn’t quit, it seems like every other day we have something awesome about the French ElectroPop duo to write about. In this instance fellow Frenchman and master of Disco and SynthWave DiscoRazor has turned his reMixing attentions to Jupiter’s ‘Hula Hoop’ from the recently released eleven tracks of pure awesome they call ‘Juicy Lucy’.

The original is pretty indicative of Jupiter. ElectroPop with a Disco flavour with a slight Indie vibe and some melodically chopped up vocals. DiscoRazor strips out the Indie guitar and replaces it with some seriously smooth Disco with a bit of a House edge to it. DiscoRazor shows his SynthWave side in the track too, with a twisted synth solo that leads right into a slick piano breakdown. DiscoRazor has delivered a slick carefree tune packed with Funk that perfectly compliments Jupiter’s original whist making it slightly more palatable to late night dancefloors. You could od a lot worse than investigating DiscoRazor’s recently released ‘Golden Night’ EP.

Jupiter’s début album

Jupiter

OK, so we’ve had French ElectroPop duo Jupiter’s début album in our possession for a few weeks now, but have been held back from reviewing it due to, obviously, them wanting the ‘One O Six’ single pushed first. It’s been an agonising few weeks, as we’ve been dying to tell people how good the album really is. But hey, we’ve been waiting for it for three years, so what’s another couple of weeks.

And was the wait worth it? Hell yeah it was. Jupiter have been a staple on the lips of ElectroPop fans for a few years now, right from the early Anoraak reMix and their standout reMix of CHEW LiPS’ ‘Salt Air’, alongside their début ‘Starlighter’ single, they crashed onto the Electro scene and left us all eagerly awaiting a full length record. Last years ‘Saké’ teased us that things were starting to move faster toward the goal and now here we are, ‘Juicy Lucy’, Jupiter’s début album will be released next month, and it’s going to be the soundtrack to your summer.

The LP kicks off with the current single ‘One O Six’, Jupiter’s tribute the their favourite synth, which sets up the album perfectly with it’s jumping Funk bass, big retro synth stabs and quirky vocals, it’s a great choice for a single and a great primer to Jupiter’s sound. Amélie De Bosredon and Quarles Baseden are the only double act I know that can so seamlessly merge traditional SynthPop, Indie-Electro and ‘’70’s Funk and Disco. Sure, lots of artists draw from this pool of influenced but who other than Jupiter can have and Indie guitar lick, shiny Disco synths from space and a SynthPop lead line all working in harmony to this extent. The album flip from track to track, highlighting a different side to Jupiter’s sound with each new tune. From the Indie stylings of ‘Set The Course Of The Nile’ and ‘La Dynamo’ to the pure Disco sounds of ‘Elliot Uppercut’ and the title track ‘Juicy Lucy (Needs A Boogieman)’ and the deep Electro-House of ‘St. Petersborg’, Jupiter’s summer, good times, vibe is layered thickly over everything., and it’s that Jupirterness that makes the album so great. Amongst the retro Funk, the sweet synth riffs and the Vocoders is this energy, this life best exemplified by Amélie’s magical-pixie-dream-girl vocals and the album’s overarching bouncyness that is so unique to these two. ‘Juicy Lucy’ is a masterpiece of DiscoPop, complexly layered, intricate, electronic music that end up being simplistically catchy, and easily a contender for the album of the year. Buy this record and your summer will belong to Jupiter.

Jupiter’s reMix of Sébastien Tellier’s ‘Cochon Ville’

Sébastien Tellier

French DiscoPop duo of the moment Jupiter made themselves a little DJ friendly version of fellow Frenchman Sébastien Tellier’s awesome current single ‘Cochon Ville’ for their last mixtape. Now they have released it, for free, in it’s entirety.

Jupiter’s version is a slick rolling Disco edit of the track. Ripe for the dancefloor Jupiter highlight that undulating Disco bassline. Stripping back the tune to it’s most basic Disco elements and the drawing them out over five minutes. With a particularly tension inducing build over the first half of the track until it drops you right into the heart of the song, this is definitely the mix to drop in the middle of the night.

‘Cochon Ville’ is the first single taken from Sébastien Tellier‘s new album ‘My God Is Blue’ available now via Record Makers.

Jupiter’s ‘One O Six’ EP

jupiter

So, we already established that French ElectroPopsters Jupiter’s ‘One O Six’ is probably an ode to the Roland Juno 106 synthesizer when we wrote about the fantastic A.N.D.Y. reMix of the track. The whole single, including the B-Side is a pretty special collection of tracks that definitely deserves further investigation.

‘One O Six’ is a deep analog bass funkin’, synth stabbin’, dreamy vocal croonin’ slice of DiscoPop. Musically imbued with a particular French sense of humour, this is exactly the kind of bouncing quirky SynthPop we’ve come to expect from this twosome in the last few years. The B-Side, ‘Multicolorising’, many not have the catchy vocal hook of ‘One O Six’, but my word does it make up for it in tons of Cosmic Funk. Vocodered robot vocals chant melodically over thick Moog-esque bass and laser synth zaps. This is late ‘70’s/early ‘80’s electronic Disco amazingness and, to be honest, is the stand out track on the EP. We’ve already heard the stunning A.N.D.Y. reMix, the other reMixes on the single come courtesy of Juveniles with laid back French Disco mix, T.E.E.’s deep Acid track, and The Supermen Lovers with two reMixes, the ‘Classic’ mix which lays on the ‘70’s Disco hard, and this ‘Basic’ mix. A growling House cut lead by some intense percussion that takes the track deep and dark while retaining the groove. The ‘One O Six’ single is a top quality taster of what to expect from Jupiter’s forthcoming, and long awaited ‘Juicy Lucy’ album. We’ve heard it, it is seriously good. More on that later though.
