Parisian producer of all things smooth synthetic Disco Kartell has been dropping some amazing tracks recently, his reMixes are getting better and better. His latest mission was to get funky with Disco Funk legends The Brooklyn, Bronx & Queens Band and their 1986 hit (I’m A) Dreamer.
Kartell has created a perfect summer Funk track right here. The brittle synth stabs play nicely against the bouncy digital slap bass, with a jerky nervousness so telling of Disco tracks from the mid ‘80’s. All adding to the laid back groove Kartell has created using just the right amount of the vocal to add some smoothness, but not take over the track. Grab yourself a drink, (I’m A) Dreamer’s here.
‘Don’t Fade Away’ is what Human Life do best. Summery, catchy ElectroPop with a feel good factor and a slight edge. Driven by piercing synths and call-and-response male & female vocals, ‘Don’t Fade Away’ is a pretty simple, stripped down version of SynthPop, but the simplicity really works and and allows the song to breathe. The consistently amazing Shook contributes a reMix to the single, brining his highly technical Nu-Disco to the table, creating a smooth jam that changes the mood of the vocals into something more relaxed and let’s Shooks musical talent shine. Kartell also chooses to drop a chilled groove,. There’s more of a beach vibe to this one, it’s ‘Don’t Fade Away’ tropical style.
We dropped the new Teenage Bad Girl single on you a couple of weeks ago, well it’s out now and to celebrate Citizen Records are giving away this exclusive reMix of the track by Kartell, not featured on the EP!
Less heavy and noisy as the the original, Kartell takes the groove and the smooth vocoded vocals from the track and invited them down the Disco. Thrown into the mix are the occasional electro tom and hand clap just to remind you of where you are. The original track was an awesome buzzsaw noisy ElectroPop tune, this reMix is a more sophisticated beat altogether.
