Chicago based 21st century, post-ElectroClash, ElectroPop chicks Moneypenny are giving away the reMix package of their latest single, ‘Destroy’.
In exchange for your eMail address the three track single can be yours featuring reMixes of ‘Destroy’ from Bright Light, Mother Hubbard and this track from electronic rumors faves and fellow Windy City denizens Midnight Conspiracy. MC take the track and go pedal-to-the-metal, Electro-House style, in a high octane clash of deep bassline and buzzsaw synths that truly earns the title ‘banger’.
Here we have MC reMixing Gemini Club’s début single ‘Ghost’, throwing into a wonky bass powerhouse. A step apart from their huge Italo reMixes of recent time and, according to their email, a taste of darker and heavier things to come.
Woah! ‘Vietnam’ was one of the cooler tracks of Crystal Castles’ second self-titled albums, it’s heavy arpeggiated bassline counterpointed with sparkling bells was pretty infections, but Midnight Conspiracy (them of the rad Chromeo and Esser reMixes) have turned it into an awesome Italo influenced Nu-Disco monster!
There’s a lot of 80’s Pop in the mix too, the claps, the lead line, the FM bassline…this is about as perfect a reMix, of quite a disjointed track, as you could get. It even drops some 8-bit sounds toward the end, something for everybody (well, me anyway)!
This week Crystal Castles triumphantly announced their return with a new album and two new singles.
In an awesome move the new album, as with their début, will be self titled! Which is just a stroke of genius. The first proper single released will be a track called ‘Celestica’.
Before that, however, the duo are releasing a limited edition (500 copies) 12” of ‘Doe Deer’ to celebrate Record Store Day on 17th April.
To get you warmed up for all this good stuff here’s a couple of new reMixes. Midnight Conspiracy’s take on ‘Crimewave’ is a pretty amazing slice of 8-bit flavoured SynthPop and ‘Untrust Us’ as reMixed by Alex Zelenka, which is a deep bleepy vision of the original.
Esser’s ‘Headlock’ is getting on a bit now, but it was a good tune, so it’s nice to see it brought back to life by Chicago’s Midnight Conspiracy.
We previously featured their reMix of Chromeo’s ‘Night By Night’, this time it’s not the Dreamwave road they are travelling, oh no. Here, they treat us to some real deep dark Dubstep, and it works so well! Midnight Conspiracy lay down some throbbing subs to rival anything coming out of Bristol or LDN!
