South African/Australian Indie-Electro outfit Clubfeet have not only just embarked on an Australian tour but are also gearing up for the release of their new double A-side single ‘Everything You Wanted/Heartbreak’, due for release later this month. Ahead of the new single dropping, tour support, Future Classic artist Panama has reMixes the guys previous offering Cape Town to Tropical effect.
Panama’s take on Cape Town is like a laid back Island embrace. A rolling Disco effort who’s stomping basslines, beach purcussion and twisting Moog Funk leads all combine with a raw piano hook to create a chilled but pumping poolside groove. Add a splash of hazy and fitting vocals that are actually darker than first listen might suggest, and you’ve got an interesting, summery track right here.
Australian outfit Panama’s Magic isn’t strictly a new track, neither is the reMix from Brooklyn’s Midnight Magic. But the band have just been signed by Future Classic who are set to release the tune properly this month.
Sitting alongside a reMixes from LCD Soundsystem’s Gavin Russon, the Midnight Magic mix is a slick, late night DiscoPop jam. Summery and sexy, Midnight Magic’s mix glides out of the speaks to permeate every corner of the room with it’s rich piano and cosmic synth squelches. The actual song is quite an airy Indie-Electro tune that lends itself perfectly to a mirrorball spectacular like this. Shuffling hats and a pure Disco bassline keep a rolling groove going, solid and smooth, so the starlight synths can dance around the track. As the title says, it’s Magic.
