[Audio] The Knocks & Sneaky Sound System’s ‘The One’

 

the-knocks

New York DiscoPop duo The Knocks are showing off more from their forthcoming Comfortable EP. This time it;s one of the back-up track, and one, in our opinion, should have possible been the lead tune on the release. It features the wonderful Sneaky Sound System, and it’s called The One. DiscoPop doesn’t really get much bigger than this.

The One has all the swagger of a Nu-Disco floorfiller and all the huge euphoria of a big room monster. This explosive combination of two worlds results in a huge, sassy dance track with a vintage Disco funk running underneath powerhouse chainsaw synths. Sneaky Sound System’s Connie belts her way through the track bringing the uplifting vibes and taking things to the next level. From what we’ve heard of the EP so far, this one’s the standout.

Sneaky Sound System’s ‘Friends’ reMixes

Sneaky Sound System

There’s a few reMixes of Australian Pop superheroes Sneaky Sound System’s new single Friends around, the whole single package is really good, including work from BeNi, Sneaky SoundSystem’s own Black Angus and an awesome mix from Plastic Plates we featured last week. Of the tracks on the single that are fresh to our ears, the mixes from Jonny Pow!! and Norman Doray are the standouts.

Plastic Plates aside, Jonny Pow!! delivers the best of the crop. A Funky ElectroPop tune that takes Connie’s big vocal and adds more Disco groove and this infections synth hook that worms it’s way into your brain. This is definitely, alongside the Plastic Plates mix, the more intelligent reMix in the package. For summer DiscoPop connoisseurs If you want massive danceflor action, then Norman Doray delivers, generic Trance lead aside it’ll do the job, just try not to think about it too hard. It’s all good fun.

Plastic Plates reMixes Sneaky Sound System

Sneaky Sound System

Apparently, Felix Bloxsom A.K.A. Plastic Plates takes much of his inspiration from busses. You wait for a Plastic Plates track for ages then two come along at once. In the first of two Electro groovin’ reMixes from the La based Australian, he takes on fellow Aussies, ElectroPop heroes Sneaky Sound System.

reMixing their ‘Friends’, Plastic Plates bring a synthetic Funk to the track. The original already has a pretty solid Disco groove, but PP ramps up an analog sounding cosmic vibe that has a raw quality to it that works brilliantly with the lovely Connie Mitchell’s smooth a silk vocals delivery. Hopefully this sudden glut of Plastic Plates reMixes hints at something new coming from the man on the horizon. Definitely more like this reMix would be appreciated.

Sneaky Sound System’s ‘Really Want To See You Again’ reMixes

SneakySoundSystem

Australian ElectroPop duo Sneaky Sound System must be feeling pretty pleased with themselves, they had an awesome 2011. they released their third album, ‘From Here To Anywhere’ to critical acclaim, which spawned a bunch of singles, most notably the massive ‘Big’ featuring that Oliver reMix.

They start the new year with a new single. Taken from the aforementioned album, ‘Really Want To See You Again’ get the single treatment which kicks off with an epic extended mix. This version really highlights the late ‘80’s/early ‘90’s DancePop influences on this track. Connie’s soulful and slightly gritty vocals switching from Pop Soul to House Diva effortlessly. The reMix package is pretty loaded too. Azari & III do their deep, mysterious, ‘90’s thing with the track. Cutting and pasting vocal snatches over their bass heavy Roland grooves and Sci-Fi synths. Pure deep Chicago House. Funkagenda bring us back into DiscoHouse territory adding wicked little guitar licks and a new male vocal as counterpoint to the original vocal and new heavy synth bassline. KiNK’s reMix is making some waves right now,  I wouldn’t say it was my favourite of the mixes, but it’s definitely worthy of the attention, taking the track in an almost Techno direction with it’s droning synths and, er, cuckoo clock. This is the one that’ll blow up dancefloors in Europe.

Sneaky Sound System tore up the Roller Disco at Bestival this past weekend so it’s was nice to come home to this, a meeting of one of out favourite ElectroPop acts and one of out favourite Dreamwave double acts.

The two Olivers of Oliver give Sneaky Sound System’s new single ‘Big’ a Nu-Disco workout worthy of the tracks name. it’s big. Massive synth chords, a huge Electro-House riff and gargantuan drums. Yup, it’s all got a bit…er…bigger.

Sneaky Sound System’s new single

Sneaky Sound System

They’ve been teasing us for a while now, but here it is. The Australian super Pop duo Sneaky Sound System’s next track from their forthcoming new album.

‘BIG’ follows ‘We Love’ and gives us an idea of what to expect from Black Angus & Miss Connie third album, and first for Modular Recordings, titled, ‘From Here To Anywhere’ . Slick ElectroPop with a bouncy bassline and an epic chorus. Connie Mitchell’s vocals soar  over the track proving she is one of the best voices in electronic Pop. Guaranteed to please on the dancefloor, ‘BIG’ is also quite an understated, emotional track too, not as in your face as previous Sneaky Sound System singles. More mature maybe? Awesome stuff nonetheless.
