OK, are you sitting down? This is going to get a bit confusing. Nashville based SynthWavers Makeup And Vanity Set are about to release a new EP, 7.25.2148, which is a prologue to two concept albums to be released in the coming months. In advance of the EP they released one of the tracks, Praxis, as a single with new track A Prologue as it’s B-side, but you get the full Praxis single featuring reMixes from Pilotpriest, Magic Sword and Sabrepulse if you by the CD version of the EP. Got it? Rather than give ourselves a headache we’re just going to look at the Praxis single and it’s reMixes single today, the one you get free when you buy the 7.25.2148 EP. It’s all good.
So then, Praxis? As well as being 7.25.2148’s standout track is a storming slice of synthetic futurism. Loaded with twisting synths and a pounding Italo beat, Makeup And Vanity Set conjure an enigmatic mood. Intertwining melodies and lead lines sparkle like starlight amidst the warm glow of the rich pads. it;s a track full of mystery and optimism that’s can still get you shaking on the dancefloor once it’s dominant riff kicks in. The best of soundtrack inspired SynthWave and up-all-night Italo in one tune. The amazing Pilotpriest delivers a suitable epic mix of the track. Wrapping Praxis in his trademark emotional electronic orchestration Pilotpriest takes the listener away to far off galaxies. Injecting the track with a little digital funk is Magic Sword, who’s reMix is a marching robot Disco tune is as unsettling as it is funky.. The 7.25.2148 EP itself is a magical synthesizer oddessy through different moods and soundscapes and, frankly, the Praxis reMix package with worth the price alone.
