Afghan Raiders tackle Neon Indian


Afghan Raiders stopped by the electronic rumors Inbox to drop off their latest reMix and this time its Psychedelic Indie-ElectroPoppers Neon Indian who get a ‘Raiders going over.

There’s almost a Dubstep vibe running through a lot of this track, Big warping Dub basslines and rimshot rhythms run through the first couple of minutes until the  Analog ElectroPop kicks in.

House/Electronica producer Rui Maia is back and dropping beats under the guise of Mirror People. Counting New Order, Add N To (X), Giorgio Moroder and Suicide amongst his influences (and you can bet Kraftwerk too!), you can see them shine through in this almost minimal slice of Electro. ‘Diamonds’ is a blipy little tune whose sheer electronicness can’t help but put a smile on my face.

Check out a couple of reMixes he’s done for Detachments (really Kraftwerky!) and blogtastic Nu-Disco act Neon Indian.

The week in Bangers: 19:04:09

The week in Bangers: While electronic rumors isn’t strictly an Electro-House blog, we do cover a lot of Electro-House that crosses over in to our realm. So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…


Wassup peeps? This week in Bangers kicks off with Joris Voorn’s Electro Acid ‘Addict’ before crashing straight into the vocoder Disco of the Tronik Youth reMix of Drlkt Freddie Freddie’s ‘Airtight’. The Nu-Disco continues with Fenech-Soiler reMixed by Combo and the Amazing Mad Decent mix of ‘Quicksand’ by ElectroPop superstar La Roux. The Twelves keep it funky with their take on Metric whilst Neon Indian provide some quirky dancefloor Noise-Pop. Mark Lam reworks Streetlife DJs hit of last year ‘We ♥ The Disco Sound’ and bring it back banging and we leave you with our favourite anthropomorphised tigers, Tigersapian, and a new reMix by Clockwork.
