Last week the mighty Lightwaves continued their sweeping comeback with the new single Returned. This week Jan and crew add the icing on the cake with a stellar reMix from our very own She’s The Queen. I doubt at this point there’s any point in us even pretending there’s no bias here, in our opinion She’s The Queen are two of the most talented people on the planet, card carrying members of the electronic rumors family, and a couple of the nicest people you will ever meet. So, for the next paragraph, pretend it’s being written by someone who doesn’t love them. Y’know, like a critic or something.
This reMix is super awesome! If you ever managed to find the end of a rainbow you’d discover a pot of this reMix! Seriously though, Drew amps the energy with masterful Pop beats and big, shiver inducing, synths. With just a pinch of nostalgia, this immensely slick slice of ElectroPop is guaranteed to worm it;s way into your heart. What we’re saying is it’s pretty fucking good; but then, we’re bound to say that aren’t we, so just listen.
Hey readers. A couple of weeks ago my father passed away, you may have seen a lull in posts. When all was done and dusted I felt the need to do something, both to commemorate my Dad and to give a little to an organization that helps both sufferers and carers, especially at a time like Christmas. So X-Mas Rumors was born. Four artists from the label kindly gave me their time and talent (and hopefully had a little fun) cover four beloved Christmas tunes.
Soundtrack your Christmas party, and do a little good in the process, with this new EP loaded with electronic cover versions of classic Christmas songs. Four of electronic rumors’ finest artists have generously devoted their time to covering their favourite Christmas songs for X-Mas Rumors, and EP whose entire earnings with be going to the Alzheimer’s Society.
electronic rumors newcomer (and Vulture Music veteran) Kids At Midnight work some kind of silky magic on Wham!’s Last Christmas, while the 60’s classic Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love gets an energetic retro ElectroPop re-envisioning by SynthWaver Let Em Riot. New York ElectroPoppers She’s The Queen deliver their upbeat take on Stevie Wonder’s classic What Christmas Means To Me and the EP plays out with electronic experimentalist beaumont intricate take on Little Drummer Boy.
The EP is being released with a ‘pay what you want’ price mark, with 100% of the revenue going to the Alzheimer’s Society we’re hoping people are full of Christmas cheer and give generously.
This 13th February marks the one year anniversary of the release of electronic rumors Volume 1. The compilation, spawned from a blog, that spawned a record label.
Released in association with Ninthwave Records, ER Vol. 1, collected 15 of the best ElectroPop, Nu-Disco and Dreamwave artists around onto one big CD and digital release.
To mark Volume 1’s birthday, we’re giving away a free EP. Four artists who appeared on ER Vol. 1, reMixing four other tracks from the album. All exclusive and specially recorded for this EP, and our gift to everyone who has supported us and the artists we’ve worked with in the last twelve months
Some of the finest talent from electronic rumors Volume 1 have kindly contributed to this free reMix EP with the worlds of ElectroPop, Dreamwave and Nu-Disco all represented. Lending their amazing songs to the EP are the queen of DiscoPop Ronika, ElectroPop siren Queen Of Hearts, 80s SynthPopper Kid Kasio and Indie-Electro dreamers Echoes. Turning their skills to reworking these fine tunes are Electro future stars Substatic, the cream of New York ElectroPop She’s The Queen, Dreamwave O.G.s LexiconDon and Electro experimentalist beaumont.
Today sees the long awaited release of New York ElectroPop duo She’s The Queen’s ‘Talk To Me’. It’s released by me, and frankly that makes me feel a little weird about writing about it, so I’m just going to copy and past the press release…also by me. Suffice to say it’s fucking awesome, if it wasn’t I wouldn’t have devoted the last few months of my life to it.
This September New York ElectroPop Duo She’s The Queen release their fresh new single, Talk To Me.
Upbeat and catchy, Talk To Me sees Drew Kuryloski and Emily White bring together the best in soulful Pop and energetic Dance-Pop, seeped in a love of Nu-Disco and Dreamwave.
Drew’s flawless production sheen compliments Emily’s huge Motown-esque vocals perfectly as the two produce a sure-fire summer favourite. Unique amongst ElectroPop, but classic sounding, the dance beats and bluesy vocals that make up Talk To Me are instantly infectious.
Backed with reMixes raging from Big Room House, to smooth Nu-Disco from the likes of Lightwaves, digitalfoxglove, ODahl and Silenx the Talk To Me single contains something for every dancefloor.
Talk To Me is out today on electronic rumors. That’s right bitches, we’re a label!
I’m not really well versed in the ways of Jeff Buckley, I think it comes from being British and not really into Rock, She’s The Queen have tried to educate me but I’m just not having any of it. What I will have a little slice of, however, their cover of the man’s ‘Last Goodbye’.
It’s their tribute to his, apparently he’s dead. I don’t know about that, I’ll have to take their word for it. Wikipedia backs them up, but y’know, anyone can edit that. I’m sure there’s no conspiracy, I’m just saying it’s not my field of expertise. What I am sure of though, is that Drew and Emily can record the hell out of a song. Drew production is flawless, the sharpest, fullest Pop you’ll ever hear yet at all times subtle. As with the best producers his tracks are rich powerhouses that seem so effortless. Nothing hit you in the face, demanding your attention, everything works together as part of the whole. That’s called mixing! And Emily, well, there is not a more soulful voice recording ElectroPop right now that can even compare. As with Drew’s production, she makes it sound so effortless, every syllable conveying an emotional power that is so rare, even in talented singers. OK, so ‘reader’ you think I’m bias, because they are realising their new single on electronic rumors? You may be right, but that wouldn’t be happening if we didn’t believe in them 100%. Ask yourself which came first?, us writing about how great they were or us releasing their new record, and cast your accusing eyes to the floor.
♫ She’s The Queen – Last Goodbye (Jeff Buckley Cover)
She’s The Queen self-titled début EP is out now.
Their new single is coming out when we’re ready, hold your horses!
She’s The Queen are pretty much family now, so everything the release had better be amazing or it’s gonna’ get pretty awkward around here pretty quickly. Luckily that’s not a bridge we’ve had to cross yet as showcased by their latest track, a reMix of Montreal based Indie-Electro outfit Stars’ ‘We Don’t Want Your Body’, which is (thankfully) amazing.
She’s The Queen’s Drew shows off his production chops one again with this mix, taking the raucous original and reeling it in to a slick summery ElectroPop class act. The layers of synth here are all perfectly balanced, the punch bass and sparking leads all sitting comfortable with each other and the vocals, which take on a whole new inflection in this setting. Check it out.
I’m predicting big things for She’s The Queen. Still riding high on the euphoria of being featured on ‘electronic rumors Volume 1’ the ElectroPop duo made the slightly confused decision to sign with a record label, that record label being the freshly formed electronic rumors, a decision they made under the advice of their manager, me, do you see where this is going? I’m not really their manager (they just bully me into doing that) I am, however, releasing their new single and some amazing reMixes, it’s gonna’ be huge, but more more on that in the coming months.
Right now check out our friend Lucas, A.K.A. Robots With Rayguns’, reMix of ‘Plead To The DJ’. He’s taken the track and crafted on of those tracks that leads a double life. On first glace it’s a big room, peak time dancefloor destroyer, complete with heavily cut-up and pitched vocals, real Ministry Of Sound stuff. But the track is actually deceptively laid back, the more you listed to it the more you realise it’s actually the prefect soundtrack to rollerblading on Venice Beach or [insert other summery activity here]. It’s that dreamy lead line that makes it, all lush synths played with flourish.
Well, it’s finally out in the wild, the last seven months of my life have come to fruition as we are amazingly proud to present ‘electronic rumors volume 1’.
I won’t go on about it, it’s possible that i would have a hard time reviewing it objectively, so take a listen to Ride The Universe’s awesome minimix of the compilation featuring all 15 tracks.
It’s almost weird that it’s real now and if you like physical media I would really recommend the CD, it comes in a stunning DigiPak designed by Sebastian Bentler.
♫ Electronic Rumors Volume 1 MiniMix (Mixed By Ride The Universe)
electronic rumors & Ninthwave Records
electronic rumors Volume One
Available 13th February 2012 on CD and Digital Download featuring the best in new ElectroPop, Dreamwave, Nu-Disco and Indie-Electro.
For the past four years music blog electronic rumors (electronicrumors.com) has been serving up the latest and greatest news and tracks in the world of Electro/Disco/Indie/Dreamwave/Synth/Stuff/Thing/Pop and now they have teamed up with respected Us ElectroPop label Ninthwave Records (Heaven17/White Town/The Modern) to release electronic rumors Volume 1, featuring of some of the best artists making Dreamwave, Nu-Disco, ElectroPop and Indie-Electro in the last twelve months including exclusive tracks from Ride The Universe (Dreamwave supergroup acclaimed, for their reMixes, with their début original), the much hyped Show Your Shoe, Futurecop!, beaumont, Substatic and Echoes and the first time on CD for Queen Of Hearts and Ronika, both tipped by the mainstream press for chart dominance in 2012. They feature alongside some of the most exciting electronic music that broke out in 2011.
Jan has taken the soulful Pop track and turned it into an Ibiza monster that would make Ministry Of Sound proud. Straight to the big room, the reMix balances Nu-Disco with a Balearic euphoria and some nice Electro inserts. Despite the vocal manipulation Lightwaves has managed to keep the feel of the track intact, but give it a new lease of superclub life. With the right push this tune could be storming the clubs this summer,
She’s The Queen have finally released their new track, ‘Talk To Me’. Was it worth the wait? Why yes, yes it was…
This track should come with a disclaimer, or at the very least a health warning. One listen is all it takes, and you’ll be humming the chorus all day, and the next. ‘Talk To Me’, with it’s epic chorus, Disco funk and perfect Pop structure, just reinforces my bewilderment that no major label has snapped up this duo yet. It’s seriously staggering that She’s The Queen aren’t releasing singles that storm the charts. they don;t need to find themselves a big, or hip, producer to work with because Drew is already at the top of his game and can easily stand shoulder to shoulder with the best of them. And he doesn’t need to be paired up with the latest singing talent, because he already has Emily, one of the best Pop singers you will ever hear. None of their flawless production is label backed, so imagine what they could do with a major behind them. All I’ll say is whoever doesn’t sign them will be kicking themselves in the long run.
