We’ve been keeping out eye on Norway’s seipä for a while now, and his new tune ‘Sunset Highway’ is just one more if his full on SynthWave monsters.
‘Sunset Highway’ has all the right elements in the right places. a sprawling , majestic track with a B-Boy beat. Loaded with thick, lush synths that flow over an rapid fire Italo bassline. This track is like a juggernaut, relentless in it’s synthetic assault. Frantic it may be, but harsh it is not, the soloing that rides the track is slick as hell, and with a solid groove. When the synth horns kick in for the finale you are so swept up in the track it just carries you away. The playing off of the aggressive bassline against the emotional leads is what makes this track. ‘Sunset Highway’ is a two headed creature, and works both those two elements perfectly.
So, Cinnamon Chasers’ ‘the Day That Never Came’/’Warm Rush’ reMix competition has drawn to a close, we’ve already featured Mr. Mæn’s and Lameboy Advance’s reMixes but while we await the winner to be announced let have a listen to some of the highlights so far.
We’ve by no means had the opportunity to listen to every single entrant, but here are some of the tracks that have stood out to us in out browsing of what’s on offer. Collins, unsurprisingly, turns in a top quality synthesiser workout with layers of retro electronic and does a really good job of creating a mood with his use of sound. Norwegian outfit seipä, have entered a massive sounding ElectroPop version of ‘The Day That Never Came’ that is pure synth euphoria. Jason Kid, winner of the Monsieur Adi reMix cometition, delivers a warm SynthWave track in his ‘Warm Rush’ reMix while Croatian act Senzorz drop some live ElectroPop with walls of arpeggios.
