Yesterday saw LexiconDon wrap up recording of their début long player. To celebrate the occasion they, and the good folks at Binary, are giving you a sneak peek at a new track.
‘December Sunset’ is a smoother and slicker song than we’ve heard from LexiconDon in the past and shows a maturing of their songwriting prowess. The guys have always seemed to write about everyday lives and loves rather than grand concepts and this track feels like the most genuine thing they’ve done to date. The music too, feels, somehow, more intimate and honest. Less distorted synths, more melody. SynthPop at it’s finest.
I’m sure the album will probably feature more of the raw, almost punky, Electro LexiconDon we are used to but if this is the way the band are evolving, the album could really be something special.
Binary Records resident Electro-House guy The Kids Are Radioactive has send on over his two latest mixes. It been a few months since we’ve heard for this, relative, youngster but these mixes show a definite progression in his style.
Tackling Lady GaGa’s worldwide hit ‘Bad Romance’ and Shane Silver’s ‘Abyss’, he really knocks it out the park with his Lady GaGa mix. There is one particular riff up in this pretty busy mix, that just works perfectly, his work on the vocals too shows and almost flawless understanding of what works on the dancefloor. Some of the sounds in his Shane Silver are a little too Virusey/Trancey for my personal tastes but when it kicks in it has got a completely rockin’ Electro groove.
So here we have for you some of the reMixes that come with the single, kicking off with LexiconDon, who keep hold of the chilled summer vibe but pull it in more of a straight ElectoPop direction with stunning results. While everyone else in the world is chilling to this tune in the sun with a beverage, Walter Sobcek heads straight for the dancefloor with his take on the track leaving Alfa to crack out an arpeggio driven Electro reMix. It’s a storming reMix package, well worth a purchase!
