[Release] Kids At Midnight’s ‘Unashamed’ & ‘Vapours’

 

02 Kids At Midnight - Unashamed-Vapours (Single) - Cover

Here it is! The long awaited return of the finest name in Australian Deep ElectroPop; Kids At Midnight.

A singer/songwriter/producer whose reputation precedes her, Jane Elizabeth Hanley, A.K.A. Kids At Midnight, released her début EP, Let You Slide (back in 2012 via Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music label) to critical acclaim whilst simultaneously becoming the Nu-Disco scene’s voice-in-demand; featuring on Edwin Van Cleef’s massive cover of Phoenix’s Lisztomania and Ride The Universe’s A Little Better amongst many others.

Now Kids At Midnight is poised to unleash a brand new double A-side single. Two lush, emotive and rich tracks that blur the boundaries between Deep House, ElectroPop, Nu-Disco, and Indie-Electro. Unashamed and Vapours. If you like your dance music song based, epic and passionate then this release will be unmissable.

A selection of reMixes tune the tracks for every dancefloor with Holmes Price bringing a retro Boogie to Unashamed whilst So Serious (the Deep House alter ego of Phunktastike) give the track an enigmatic groove. Vapours is given a spacey Tropical Tech House workout by Daniel Högberg of Pacific! and a beach party Disco send off by LA’s Dreamwave originator Touch Tone.

Moonlight Matters’ reMix of Pacific!’s ‘Unspoken’

Pacific! new single, ‘Unspoken’ is an awesome song in it’s own right, a beautiful electronic narrative that features a haunting vocal performance from El Perro Del Mar.

But, sweet Disco messiah, Moonlight Matters long awaited reMix is a slap bassin’, synth funkin’’, riff soarin’ juggernaut. Moonlight Matters is Belgian Sebastiaan Vandevoorde, one part of Villa, and on this reMix he drops the spooky in favour of shit-loads of late 70’s Disco glam. Pounding into your should, it’s the slap bass that dominates this tune, the heartbeat that allows Moonlight Matters to create something truly epic. If this tune came on during the finale of some inspirational 70’s movie I would not be surprised in the least!

“Unspoken” is out now on Alan Braxe’s Vulture Music. reMix back up from Santiago & Bushido, Moonlight Matters, Alex Gopher & Pierrick Devin and Anoraak

Pacific! & Anoraak

Get your ears round the new reMix of Pacific!’s ‘Unspoken’ by Valerie’s top player Anoraak.

‘Unspoken’, taken from Pacific!’s amazing sophomore album, Narcissus, is getting a single release backed with reMixes from the likes of Santiago & Bushido, Moonlight Matters, Alex Gopher & Pierrick Devin and this Anoraak mix. Taking El Perro Del Mar’s vocals, that tell the story of  Echo, who is rejected by the vain Narcissus and left pining for him, but with her love unanswered, she slowly withers away until only her voice is left, and putting it to Anoraak 80’s flavoured Electro works seems a stroke of genius. Anoraak’s smooth tunes are already soundtrack inspired so seem to flow perfectly with a narrative track like this.

‘Unspoken’ is out soon on Alan Braxe’s Vulture label.

Pacific! – Narcissus – The Album

Swedish ElectroPop eccentrics Pacific! are finally on the verge of dropping their second album, ‘Narcissus’. Originally conceived at the soundtrack to a ballet the record works amazingly well sans avant-garde dancers in frocks.

From it’s ominous harpsichord opening the album you still feel there is something a bit proggy, a bit conceptual, about the album but the music speaks for itself. Like Jean-Michel Jarre on bad (or good) acid this album is in part atmospheric and enveloping (and a little scary!) but also sweeping and electronic. Washes of Jarre mix with hints of Goldfrapp (on the vocal tracks). Like felloe Swedes The Knife there is something of the avant-garde here but similarly they have managed to cram the experimental and leftfield into Pop songs and get away with it making the edgy and unsettling elements to Pacific!’s music soon feel strangle comforting.

They have laid out the record really well to, spacing out properly structured upbeat tracks like ‘Narcissus’, ‘Unspoken’ and ‘King Of The Knight’ with their floaty instrumental works such as ‘Cupid’ and ‘Halfheart’ to give the feeling (even without aforementioned avant-garde dancers in frocks) of narrative.

Jagz Kooner and Pacific!’s analog epic

Damn, you’ve gotta’ love Jagz Kooner reMixes. He always turns in these really deep, electronic, powerhouses.

Pacific!’s forthcoming lead single from their long awaited album, ‘Narcissus’, is his latest victim, transforming the track into a BladeRunner-esq odyssey over a relentless dance beat. It’s an eight minute journey, an analog epic with a distinct beginning, middle and end. A true musical narrative.

Pacific!; first track from Narcissus

Swedish duo Pacific! are returning in September with a concept album inspired by (an named after) the Greek myth of Narcissus.

Looking like it will me something deeper, more mysterious, musically, than what we are used to from them with trailers for the project ranging from epic dance tracks to atmospheric soundscapes.

The first official track from the album to drop is ‘Venus Rising’, a Prog-Space-Disco journey that is, in equal parts, dark and brooding, and optimistic and frantic.

You get the feeling the album is going to be something special.

Kyte Vs. Pacific!

Leicestershire based Indie-Electro act Kyte and currently looking to release their new single ‘Designed For Damage’ later this month.

Taken from their album ‘Dead Waves’, the single comes with a reMix package that includes this gem from Pacific!, a smooth track that predominantly walks the line between Dreamwave and Nu-Disco but has little drops of Indie-Electro, here and there, throughout. Defiantly up there with some of the best of the laidback Indie tinged Disco that seems to be the sound of this summer.

Kyte – Designed for Damage (Pacific! reMix)

‘Designed For Damage’ is out 26th July.
