Here’s a reMix of Brooklyn SynthWavers Emeron & Fox’s latest single, the pretty awesome Nightmares, with those haunting vocals from Bit, that didn’t quite make the reMix package. Swedish Nu-Disco trio Monitor 66 already had one reMix included in the release, but in addition to that they cooked up this moody Techno version of the tune.
Monitor 66 choose a good medium to convey the mysterious feeling of the tune, in fact this version of the song is even more enigmatic than those found of the single. The deep, hypnotic bass and shuffling Techno beat intertwine with Bit’s ethereal vocal to creature something truly dreamlike. A Swirling synthetic Nightmare with an infectious groove.
Transatlantic is the new EP from Belgian Disco duo Tempogeist. Out now on Shiny Disco Club the EP contains three original tracks and a host of reMixes by some of the best talent around. It’s a release chock full of big synth Boogie and smooth Disco sounds.
We Need Lovers is a slick late-night jam. With an effortless cool Tempogeist lay down right vintage synth sounds and a laid back Disco vibe. The track is complimented with a velvet male vocal and some gentle female MCing with an early Bronx feel. That feel is carried over into Romeo, which is the EPs highlight for us. A solid Boogie track with a sing-song old school rap that just flows with the track so well. a laid back party starter. Hold On picks up the pack a little and moves proceedings into a more DiscoPop territory, layering Tempogeist’s wickedly silky vintage Disco sounds with a catchy upbeat vocal. this track gets the bulk of the remix treatment, with work from Prometones, Rogue Vogue and this track from Germany’s Satin Jackets, who deliver a squelchy bassed slab of electronic funk. Also available, but not on the EP, is this version of Romeo from Swedish SynthWavers Monitor 66. their take on the tune adds severe amounts of piano and space, but interesting use of the vocals to create a spacey and melodic House track.
Brooklyn SynthWave export Emeron & Fox are gearing up for the release of their new single later this month. If’s been a few months since their début, Dopecity, and this new release, Nightmares, sees a maturing of their sound and a massive collection of reMix talent.
Nightmares features American Indie-Pop singer Bit on vocals and is a rich, evocative SynthPop track that gently creeps along on spacious synths and distant cutting analog growls. Bit’s calm, husky voice tempers the eerie soundscape, all ties together with vintage machine drums. There is a ton of reMixes by some of the best producers out the. Swedish Nu-Disco trio Monitor 66 delivers a slow House jam. loaded with smooth laid back vibes and a ton of funk. The Dutch king of Electro Boogie L’Equipe Du Son’s take on the tune is suitably packed with B-Boy basslines. It’s a Nu-Disco stormer with a late ‘80’s electronic Soul feel and a sprinkling of 16-bit sounds for good measure. Follow Me drop a thick retro synth mix with a robotic Disco feel. Germany’s finest Final DJs drop one of the single standouts with an upbeat SynthWave track that keeps it’s energy levels up with wave after wave of sparkling melodies. Nightmares sees a definite advancement of Emeron & Fox’s sound, we can;t wait for the next instalment.

Nightmares is released 24th September on Silhouette Music.
It was only last month that we featured Swedish Nu-Disco trio Monitor 66’s single Her Bells. Hot on the heels of that release, as a thank you for all the support it received, the guys have droped a brand new tune, for free. Deep In The Night is a slick as hell was to say “cheers”.
Pure late night boogie, Deep In The Night is sexy Disco that cares about nothing but the moving you. Dropping a very slight Tropical flavour on to of the bass heave Disco sound, Monitor 66 drop a jam that is 50% mirrorball, 50% sunset. Smooth beats, smooth bass, smooth keys. Pull up a beach chair, grab yourself a cocktail, enjoy the sunset with Monitor 66.
This week the generally pretty awesome Silhouette Music, released ‘Her Bells’, the new single from Swedish trio Monitor 66. Getting their digital bass warmed up for the summer Monitor 66 have followed up their track ‘Triscuits’, which both The Magician and Zimmer rocked into their mixtapes with a track that is even more sweet.
‘Her Bells’ combines the smoothness of LA Disco with an energetic Italo flavoured Funk bassline. It’s a warm and inviting Dreamwavey Disco tune without a care in the world. While the track is laden with lush pads, sparkling bells and a deep, deep beat, it’s that digital bass that is the real deal sealer here. Like an the blissful ramblings of a Funk robot, that bassline just speaks to us. Alongside Gary Baldi, The Legendary 1979 Orchestra roll up for reMix duties and take things even deeper, before adding some 808 percussion and light House piano for a real smooth old school Chicago feel, and they keep the bassline! Good Work!
