She’s The Queen’s way

Yeah, yeah, I know, it’s not Thursday. But whatcha’ gonna’ do if She’s The Queen drop a weekend track at the weekend?

I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, dear reader (did I just say that?), but here after a couple of weeks of awesome the heavens have opened and it’s chucking down. Hopefully in your neck of the woods the sun is shining and you can crank up the stereo and play ‘The Way’ all afternoon. While many StQ tracks demonstrate Drew’s frankly mystical production skills, here, maybe more than any other track, Emily’s vocal ability is really showcased. With a classic, soulful Pop voice, Emily effortlessly breezes through the highs and lows of the song with a delivery both powerful and nuanced. Smooth and summery, this new tune dials down the tempo for a laid back vibe in an ‘arm out the window’ stylee. Clean, crisp, with stunning arrangement and production, ‘The Way’ could easily (and I mean easily) be in the top 10 in the UK.

Druma Kina reMixes Cosmonaut Grechko

Cosmonaut Grechko + She’s The Queen + Druma Kina! What can go wrong?

Absolutely nothing! Grechko’s collaboration with She’s The Queen’s Emily, ‘All I Hear’ was one of the highlights of his recent (and awesome) ‘Alaska 2100’ EP, throw Brazilian Nu-Disco king Druma Kina into the mix and you’ve got a floor rocking cut-up Nu-Disco edit of the track that’s relentless in it’s funkiness. This is a peak time track that’ll send the crowd crazy.

Totally rad!

Cosmonaut Grechko’s new EP

Cosmonaut Grechko’s new EP, ‘Alaska 2100’ is out this week and is a pretty stunning electronic masterpiece.

Grechko hits the ground running with track one, ‘Singin’’, with Joywave, it’s the prefect meeting of Dreamwave and Indie-Electro, like a spaced-out-Disco Passion Pit. It’s catchy but still maintains a summery mellow groove. ‘All I Hear’ is up next with some help from She’s The Queen (I’m writing about She’s The Queen on a day other than Thursday, feels weird) that tasks Emily’s vocals out of the normal DancePop environment and slides them into some laid back, almost Chillwave, reverb washed Disco. As with ‘Singin’’, ‘All I hear’ is incredibly listenable, Grechko’s organ riffs intertwining with the big retro synths to create an intricate, yet effortlessly cool, jam. ‘Coloreye’ and the title track are both more tradition Disco fare, both mellow and upbeat, that show Grechko still has the skills to flat out rock the dancefloor and they lead into a selection of reMixes including these two by Electronic Rumors faves Show Your Shoe and Blue Satellite. Show Your Shoe takes on ‘All I Hear’ and proves why he’s the man to watch when it comes to smooth Electro-Funk cuts with some crazy Moog action while Blue Satellite turns ‘Singin’ into a massive upbeat DiscoPop track.

The ‘Alaska 2100’ EP shows a real maturing of Cosmonaut Grechko, musically. An evolution of his music that will surely place him at the forefront of Indie-Electro and Nu-Disco.

She’s The Queen & Jules Schimmer

It’s Thursday! You know what that means!

I swear I’m not doing this deliberately, people keep sending me sweet She’s The Queen reMixes on a Wednesday!

Today’s action comes courtesy of UK producer and DJ Jules Schimmer who lays down a deep arpeggiated retro bassline and some shimmering synths for She’s The Queen’s ‘As We Run’. Taking the original to an early 80’s place with his drum patterns, rapid fire claps and electro toms give it a authentic Electro flavour and creates a nice juxtaposition between Emily’s soulful vocals and Jules’ almost B-Boy beats.

P Martell reMixes She’s The Queen

No She’s The Queen Thursday this week!

It was, however, Emily Queen’s Birthday yesterday (and we all hope she had a great day) which was coincidentally the same day that fellow Night Mover P Martell casually slid his reMix of ‘Waiting Game’ into our inbox. His mix, featuring UpTill, gives the track a chilled Ibiza vibe. A sunrise tune, with elements of Euphoric Trance and Balearic beats, that is pure hands-in-the-air-it’s-1999 stuff. P Martell seems to have a knack for bringing in the huge Trance synths whilst retaining the emotional flow of the track (those big cheesy synths can sometimes kill the mood, y’know). The production could be cleaned up a little bit, and some of the samples seem a little roughly chopped, but aside from that P Martell is a producer with definite promise.

She’s the Queen’s ‘EP’ is available now on iTunes or, if you fancy the indie route, on CD Baby.

It’s She’s The Queen Thursday!

Sorry, I couldn’t resist!

There is legitimate news from the She’s The Queen camp though. Emily and Drew have released their début EP to the public. it’s four tracks of the slickly produce ElectroPop that has so enamoured us this month. They’ve just dropped the third track ‘Plead To The DJ’ on SoundCloud and while it may not be as catchy as ‘Waiting Game’, the EP’s lead track, it is probably the best example to date of how technically impressive the duo are, both in terms of programming and vocal ability. The track shows Drew to be just as talented outside of the straight-up DancePop arena as he brings in some Hip-Hop beats and intricate melodies and shows off a new, deep, level of passion and soul in Emily’s voice.

The Sanfernando Sound reMixes She’s The Queen

It’s like She’s The Queen month here at electronic rumors apparently. This is our third post in three weeks! Always on a Thursday too, which is an odd coincidence. Maybe Thursday’s should be She’s The Queen day?

That’s not to say they don’t deserve it though! Today’s track comes courtesy of The Sanfernando Sound who stopped by the electronic rumors Inbox to drop off his awesome reMix of ‘Sleepwalker’s Curse’. With big nods to both late 90’s ElectroPop and 80’s SynthPop, TSS create a dancefloor killer with a Trance like rhythm section and ethereal retro synth leads, embellished with a healthy dose of Simmons tom rolls, which you can never have too many of. The reMix perfectly show’s off Emily’s voice and the ability to hold this kind of massive uplifting tune.

She’s The Queen’s ‘Waiting Game’ EP is out 12th April, keep checking their Facebook page for details:

She’s The Queen’s new EP

She’s The Queen, the NYC based ElectroPoppers we dropped the science on last month, are gearing up for the release of their New EP ‘Waiting Game’.

When we wrote about the duo last we included our buddy Ren Riz’s reMix of the title track, and in light of the EP release we though you ought to be wrapping your ears round the power Pop of the original version. The more you listen to this track the more you realise how incredibly sophisticated it is. We briefly touched on the production in out last piece but it’s worth mentioning again just how impressive both the arrangement and production is for an unsigned band. The track itself is an excellent choice for the lead track on a EP, it’s a powerful tune that hits you, both musically and vocally, like a wave of good emotion and would work just as well and the dancefloor as in the headphones.

Enjoy:

She’s The Queen

So, it looks like electronic rumors favourites Cosmonaut Grechko and Robots With Rayguns have gone and joined a gang! It’ll all end in violence, I know it!

Until everyone’s demise in a pointless turf war you can check out their new crew, The Night Moves Collective, in which they have enlisted the likes of P Martell and Signals into their ElectroPop mafia, as well as She’s The Queen. who I discovered browsing the NMC blog. This New York based duo pump out some top quality power ElectroPop. That kind of ElectroPop that makes you forget about the world outside.

Just take ‘All You’ve Got’. Epic, uplifting and full. Really full! The combination of Andrew Kuryloski’s multi layered, clean production and Emily White’s powerful vocals fill the speakers ‘til bursting point. Although She’s The Queen’s music makes various nods to ElectroPop of old their sound is very much in the now. Electronic music with tons of energy and emotion, the essence of ElectroPop

She’s The Queen – All You’ve Got

They have even got our good buddy Ren Riz to reMix up their track ‘Waiting Game’, the man works his toytown synthesizer funk all over the track to awesome effect.
