Mindscramble reMixes Kites


Manchester’s purveyor of the finest SynthWave and retro synth tunes, Mr. Mindscramble has cooked up another fantastic slice of ‘80’s awesomeness for us in the form of this reMix of  London based Indie-Electro outfit Kites’ new single, This Jumped-up Boy in Livery.

The original of This Jumped-up Boy in Livery is in impressive, deep, mix of Post-Punk and ElectroPop, I burbling synth backing with Gothy vocals, but Midscramble takes it to the next level with with a vintage SynthPop twist. The track starts off in true SynthWave fashion, pulsating synths and warm retro sounding chords, but Mindscrample’s rhythm work and the addition of the vocals gives the track a nice mid-‘80’s UK Pop feel. There’s a little Pet Shop Boys going on there, a little Dead Or Alive too. The frantic arpeggios and piercing lead lines really play in to the drama of the vocal track, resulting in a rich, powerful post-Italo ElectroPop tune.

The Sanfernando Sound reMixes Kites


The Sanfernando Sound is back on the mix, this time turning his attention to London Indie band Kites.

keeping up his trend of post-EBM-ish power Electro tracks this mix keeps it momentum going with deep digital bass and ominous chords. while not strictly dark, the track is pretty upbeat, there is a moody undercurrent which, when coupled with Matthew Phillips almost Gothy vocals, makes for a sound that wouldn’t have been out of place on a late ‘80’s New Beat compilation alongside Skinny Puppy and The Neon Judgement. Wrap that up in some contemporary ElectroPop/Dreamwave style production and you have a track that easily sets itself apart from it’s peers.
