It’s so good to here some new, interesting Electro coming from the Modular house and the half of TTA that is Eric Berglund has carved a unique niche for himself in the ElectroPop field. Creative use of samples sets ceo’s music apart from the pack and the mysterious visuals will certainly keep people intrigued. Keep an ear our of ceo in the coming months.
Ladyhawke’s ‘Paris Is Burning’ is re-released this week, canine cover an’ all, so before you click on over to your favourite .mp3 emporium check this reMix Alex Metric has dropped turning ’Paris’ into a driving Electro growler.
Yesterday, The Presets premièred their new video for the upcoming single ‘If I Know You’:
The video is directed by Eva Husson (who directed the acclaimed short for M83’s Kim and Jessie)
‘If I Know You’ is possibly my favourite track off of last years, absolutely stunning, ‘Apocalypso’ so I’m chuffed it’s getting single treatment, even more so if you take into account the reMix line up, which includes Tom Middleton, Via Tania & Jori Hulkkonen, Chaim, Heartbreak and Vince Clarke!!!
The last NeverEverLand was a fantastic night, hosting the likes of The Presets, Shy Child, Ladyhawke, Van She, Fred Falke, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, Lifelike, thecocknbullkid, Frankmusik etc…
The line up this time includes Afrika Bambaataa, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip (DJ Set)), Bang Gang Deejays, Tame Impala, Drums Of Death, Holy Ghost! (DJ Set), The Golden Filter, Zomby, Matt Horne (from Gavin and Stacey!) and Modular DJs…phew!
Ever since I started this blog, all those 9 long days ago!, I have been waiting for the excuse to blog-the-shit-out-of Ladyhawke…and now my chance has come thanks to Electro newcomer KiD COLA. KiD’s reMix is a serious Electro Bass juggernaut, check it out:
So, what can I say about Pip Brown A.K.A. Ladyhawke that hasn’t already been said? I don’t want to be flippant with the word ‘genius’, but Ladyhawk’s self-titled début album for the almighty Modular Recordings is genius!
Easily one of my favourite albums of last year, top 5 at least! Pip is a world class songwriter and the album takes it’s 80’s influences without exaggerating or parodying them. I couldn’t choose a favourite track from the album, I think any tune on there would convince you to buy it. So have a taster, with the opening song ‘Magic’.
