[Audio] Richard X reMixes Susanne Sundfør’s ‘Delirious’

 

Susanne Sundfør

Scandinavian SynthPop chanteuse and frequent Röyksopp collaborator Susanne Sundfør’s new album, Ten Love Songs, is released later this month. Ahead of the release cam the single Delirious, and now following that comes this massive reMix from Richard X, who we really don’t hear enough from these days. Check out what the ElectroPop producer extraordinaire coxes out of the Norwegian singer below.

Richard delivers his particular brand of playful and experimental, but absolutely Pop, electronic music with this one. Sundfør’s epic and dramatic tale is soundtracked perfectly with a particularly majestic brand of SynthPop; spikey bass rubbing shoulder with rising stings and electro zaps to build and incredibly funky nervous tension.

[Video] Annie’s ‘Back Together’

 

Annie   Back Together   Official Video   YouTube

Annie journey to the 90s is now complete. Here’s the video for Back Together, from Annie’s current, and awesome, Richard X produced The A&R EP.

Going full on ITV’s The Chart Show style, this clip runs down the Dance chart (always the best week!) from her own Invisible through imaginary entries until the retro video début’s at number 1.

Annie’s The A&R EP is out now.

[Audio] Annie’s ‘Invisible’

 

Annie

It’s another new track from Annie and Richard X’s forthcoming A&R EP. Following Back Together and Hold On this right here is the third taste of what to expect we’ve had so far. It;s also the hardest, and darkest entry in the EP so far, and the most in-your-face early 90s too. The track’s called Invisible, but it’s aggressive dancefloor stylings are anything but.

Right from the offset, Invisible is full-on Acid Rave. Breakbeat style TR-909 drum patterns, twisted TB-303 riffs, distorted Rave organs, this is pure white glove warehouse material. Add to this Annie offering a husky, deadpan vocal delivery, at times pitched down to gender bending extremes, and you have a track that captures the excitement of the early Rave culture whist still serving up something that Annie makes her own. So looking forward to this EP.

Annie

Here we have the second track to emerge from Norwegian ElectroPop queen Annie’s forthcoming collaborative EP with London Electro head Richard X, A&R. Following the reveal of Back Together earlier this month, this track, Hold On, sees Annie and Richard in blissful Pop mode.

Sounding like a breezier, slightly groovier, Saint Etienne, Hold On is like a Pop breath of fresh air. Unashamed and unworried Hold On wears it’s uplifting beats and optimistic synths on it’s sleeve. Even embracing a slight Tropical influence and some gloriously crunchy snares, the track is, at the same time, both timeless and really early 90s. None of this is unexpected though, with the team of Annie, Richard X and pop writer extraordinaire Hannah Robinson at the helm, slick, intelligent Pop is to be expected.

Here’s the first taste we’ve had of Norwegian ElectroPop songstress Annie forthcoming new EP. Titled The A&R EP, the release is so-called because of the A standing for Annie and the R for Richard X, who is on production duties for these new five tracks. The EP follows Annie’s last single Tube Stops & Lonely Hearts and looks set to be a lot more upbeat.

Little Boots has mentioned that she co-wrote some of the EP with Annie and if we had to guess, we’d say Back Together might just be one of hers. From a vocal arrangement point of view, it’s very Hands-like, Little Boots in full-on Pop mode. It’s a massive slice of ElectroPop with a brilliant 90s House piano riff, in fact it’s got quite a general 90s House vibe to it all over, but with Annie huskily dragging it into a more Pop territory. We’re looking forward to hearing the rest of the EP.

Richard X reMixes Patrick Wolf’s new single

March sees the release of Patrick Wolf’s new single, ‘The City’ on new label Hideout Recordings.

The single will come in limited edition 7”, 12” and download with a selection of reMixes including this one by Richard X. And what a reMix. This track really is something special, the original track is very cool but veteran electro producer Mr. X bring both his talent with analog synths and his talent with a pop tune to make a massive, epic, synth-fest that has a air of early Erasure about it.

Patrick Wolf – The City (Richard X reMix)

‘The City’ is out 14th March with Patrick’s new album following.

Goldfrapp’s Rocket reMixes

Goldfrapp

Goldfrapp’s forthcoming comeback single (yes, I’m calling it a ‘comeback single’, what?) ‘Rocket’ has been given a couple of sweet reMix treatments.

Prolific Leeds reMixer Grum’s French House version is just the perfect style of mix for this track, all disco beats and retro synths, it’s like Goldfrapp turned up to 11! The next take is provided by, none other than, Richard X, who’s stripped down, minimal, analog synth jam is just as club friendly:

Goldfrapp – Rocket (Richard X One Zero reMix) (zShare) (MediaFire)

Goldfrapp – Rocket (Grum reMix) (zShare) (MediaFire)

Still lovin’ the original too!

‘Rocket’ will be the first single from the album ‘Head First’.
