When Australian ElectroPoppers Radio INK returned to our consciousnesses in February with their with their ‘Who We Are Tonight’ single we welcomed them back with open arms. A massive comeback single for a band who get massive ElectroPop just right. Uplifting sing-a-long brilliance. Now they are doubling the excitement by dropping a reMix package and bringing some awesome talent with them.
Fellow Aussie Muffin is no stranger to reMixing Radio INK, but he released so rarely that we eagerly consume anything he puts out. The man is a Dreamwave genius who, with his version of the track, effortlessly merges the rich ElectroPop of Radio INK with with his own retro powerhouse. Perhaps more Poppy than Muffin productions we are used to, but this is no bad thing. Muffin brings an almost The Sound Of Arrows quality to the track in it’s pure euphoria, and when the solo kicks in, it’s enough to make a grown man weep with joy. Rogue Vogue take a deeper road with the track. First heard on The Magicians last Magic Tape, Rogue Vogue’s reMix is deep early ‘90’s House. The Sound of Chicago completely changes the cut-up vocals into a smooth jackin’ monster.
We haven’t heard from Australian ElectroPopsters Radio INK since last years ‘Rocket’ single, but they’re back with a brand new track, the first off of their forthcoming début album, and a shiny new video.
‘Who We Are Tonight’ is the kind of massive electronic Pop that we’ve come to expect from this Antepodean troupe with a massive chorus. Not too sure what’s going on in the Jefferton James directed video, but it looks nice.
Radio INK are going on tour in Oz with Aqua of all people! Details on their website.
Radio INK haven’t graced the pages of electronic rumors for a while now, but their new reMix package for the ‘Rocket’ single…oh my god!
I honestly don’t know where to begin, nine reMixes, all top quality. Let’s take a look at some of the best. Bit Funk kicks things off with one of his best to date, a deep bassed DiscoPop tune that works the best of Disco and Pop to their fullest. Moonchild rocks his synthesizer disco for an upbeat track that I believe samples Freeez’s ‘I.O.U.’, or contains a riff that sounds just like it. Neon Workout bring a more retro Dreamwave flavour to the package. The 80’s sounds in this Mix bring out a whole new side of the vocal track. Koobra (from Helsinki 78-82)’s sweeping SynthWave take on the track turns the tune into a retro ElectroPop epic with an instant classic lead line.
Radio INK are an in-your-face ElectroPop act from Sydney, Australia, who are pretty well known on their home turf but defiantly need some worldwide exposure.
The trio are about to release their third single, ‘Physical’, which is produced by hyper-talented Diamond Cut (who reMixed their last two singles) and features reMixes by the cream of down under talent. The awesome Muffin, who has been far too quiet of late, brings his massive sounding Nu-Disco flavour to the track with some massive pads and killer bass. G.L.O.V.E.S. drops more of a late night Disco vibe. Injecting the sexy to Muffin’s euphoria. Moonchild round off the package with their Filter-House workout. All three mixes keep much of the song itself intact making for thee awesome ElectroPop tracks. This single is recommended!
