Last month we dropped Human Life’s amazing reMix of Noisy ElectroPop duo Polygon Palace’s latest single ‘We Have A Visual’, now we can present the original version of the track and a reMix by the underrated Popskarr.
‘We Have A visual’ is a slice of organised Indie-Electro chaos, if you’re only used to the Human Life reMix you’ll be surprised at how gritty it is. That rawness is part of it’s charm though. Of the two promo photos that Polygon Palace sent us I chose to use this live shot ‘cos that how the music sounds, live and exiting. i wouldn’t go so far as to say punky, but their brand of ElectroPop has a bit more balls than your usual clean, superproduced, tunes. Popskarr (who produced an excellent reMix for Short Circuit’s Let Go’) turns in a deep DiscoPop track with a hypnotic bassline countered with some of the sparkliest of sparkling sytnhs and somehow manages to tame the beast that is Polygon Palace.
A while back Melbourne based international Electro duo Polygon Palace stepped up for reMixing duties on Human Life’s single ‘In It Together’, now the Californian ElectroPop heroes are returning the favour.
Polygon Palace’s new single, ‘We Have a visual’ is “a hard-hitting tune on the topic of vampire-hunting robots and cross-dimensional hedonism (with synths)” which, frankly, is as awesome as it sounds. It’s an Electro Sci-Fi epic, and Human Life take it to the next level. Bringing their massive 80’s synth sounds to the table Human Life take the track to it’s funkiest conclusion, This is pure dancefloor ElectroPop genius. Y’all defiantly need to be keeping an eye on Human Life in 2011!
Aeroplane and Grum are diggin’ them, Alan Braxe is working with them. everybody seems to love LA ElectroPoppers Human Life. The attention is well deserved too, their forthcoming second single, ‘In It Together’, is an almighty clash of Nu-Disco basslines, 8-bit sounds, 80’s synth chords, 90’s House keys and Disco vocals.

Acid Girls and Polygon Palace are just two of the big names contributing to the reMix package (alongside the likes of Louis La Roche and Kris Menace). Both have amped up the 90’s house feel, Acid Girls Electro-ing things up with a wonky bassline and Polygon Palace taking a more Nu-Disco route under that lead line.
Melbourne based Polygon Palace, Australia’s latest weapon in their bit to talk over the ElectroPop world, have dropped this awesome track about a time machine being built in Tokyo city. Sounding a little like some of the UK LaptopPop acts but with a bigger sound, ‘Tokyo Getaway’ is SynthPop with a garage sound.
The track is completely turned around into a slap bass heavy banger by Cryptonites while fellow Aussies Cassian rebuild the original track times 100 adding a sprinkling of Disco flavour.
