Johan and Le Prix’s version of the track is massive, big room, undulating mix. the duo lays thick that wonderful mixture of post-Italo groove, retro SynthWave and Sweden’s knack for perfect ElectroPop all rolled into one huge tune. Lush is the best word to describe this track, roomy, cosmic synths fill the track on top of the relentless Italo bassline, up[lifting the introspective SynthPop of the original into a fully fledged Dance classic. This is a reMix in return for Lindbergh Palace’s version of Johan Agebjörn & Le Prix’s ‘Watch The World Go By’, we’re really not sure who got the better end of the deal, maybe everyone’s a winner, especially us!
Ben from Fear Of Tigers has been far too quite lately for my liking. Of everyone making massive, retro sounding, Dreamwavey, dance tracks Fear Of Tigers are among the cream of the crop so a new FoT reMix really makes you sit up and take notice!
We featured Lindbergh Palace a while back and were pretty impressed with the Brooklyn based band. The combination of Leah Hayes vocals and Ben’s music is something special indeed! The reMix has a long rhythmic build which really pays off when the track kicks in and shows a real maturing musicality to Ben’s work.
Lindbergh Palace started life as Jonathan Benedict, Josh Harris and some pretty high profile reMixes for the likes of Rihanna and The Killers. Now alongside singer Leah Hayes and Alex Hamadey they are carving out their own unique space in the world of interesting ElectroPop.
Lead by Jonathan and Leah the Brooklyn based outfit have an EP coming out later in the year, this track ‘Scary’ is a perfect example of their audio adventures with analog synthesizers and old drum machines. Musically equal parts Minimal-Synth, ElectroPop and Indie-Electro and topped with Leah’s sometimes wistful, sometimes haunting vocals, all four tracks on the EP are defiantly worth a listen. Particularly the shuffling rhythmd Electro of ‘Starz’ and ‘Day’s Don’t Fade’, which sounds kinda’ like Dreamwave with a New York flavour.
