LexiconDon ‘Set Sail’

The boys are back in town! Well, they’re not, they’re currently on tour, but Binary’s finest SynthPop troublemakers LexiconDon are still finding time to drop the third single from last years ‘Pink + Blue’ album.

‘Set Sail’ was the comedown on ‘Pink + Blue’, the final track that eased you out of the LexiconDon world both in it’s chilled ElectroPop and it’s lyrical imagery, with a little heartbreak in the parting too. So with the single release the have enlisted the help of some of the funkiest music creators around to fill a, frankly, stunning reMix package. Chicagoan producer collective of the moment Only Children drop a live sounding tune with heaps of New York Disco groove. At an epic seven minutes their reMix runs the gauntlet from cool Disco licks to sparkling layers of analog synth. Raining heavyweight champions of smooth music, Fiero, grab the laidback beach vibe of the original with both hands and take it yachting. Their synthesizer dream is the kind of emotional soundtrack music that’s perfect for shoreline sunsets, with just the right amount of talk-boxed Disco Funk to keep you wanting more. Worship pick up the pace with their version, more fitting for the dancefloor than the beach, proving that ‘Set Sail’ works just as well as an upbeat dance track as it does as a ballad. Worship pulls out one of my favourite versions in the pack, really playing to the rhythms newly speedy vocals with the groove of the track, to give the song an urgent quality, opening up new interpretations of the lyrics.

Only Children

Only Children are Chicago based collective of DJs and producers who, after a string of edits and reMixes, have just released their début artist single on Nuclear Family.

‘Don’t Stop’ is quite a stunning début. Taking New York Disco bass, intricate Indie-Electro synth work and New Order-esque vocals and washing the whole thing in a sheen of effortless Indie Disco cool, Only Children have created a summer hit that is catchy with a groove you can’t ignore. This is how 21st century ElectroPop should sound, intelligent, funky and slick, as much for the dancefloor as the headphones. Not only is the track awesome but the line up of reMix talent is pretty amazing too. Amongst the reMix package MiGHty mOUse work their magic with a smooth organ led Disco rework, Hey Champ!’s glitterball Disco reMix is ridiculously infections, and Bit Funk provide my favourite mix with a deep late night drive of a Dreamwave mix.
