[Video] Pet Shop Boys’ ‘Axis’


Pet Shop Boys   Axis   YouTube

This is Axis, the first single from SynthPop legends Pet Shop Boys long awaited new album Electric, and it;s insanely good. A modern-Moroder robo-Disco epic with a B-Boy breakdown. Produced by Stuart Price too.

Check the video, a retro future freak-out that is absolutely perfect for the track. A neon, dreamlike, playground that’s lasertastic.

Pet Shop Boy’s Electric is due out in June.

[Audio] Les Rythmes Digitales reMixes A-Trak



Do you love Les Rythmes Digitales? Do you rank Darkdancer as one of the top five best albums of all time? A bit disappointed with much of Stuart Prices new Tracques output? Just wish he’s make LRD music again? Well, other than being me, you’re in luck…sort of. Whist we’re pretty sure, at this point Price has no intention of going back to Les Rythmes Digitales, especially with the Tracques album looming, but he has brought the project that started it all for him out of the woodwork, maybe one last time, to contribute a reMix to A-Trak new Tuna Melt reMixes EP.

The Les Rythmes Digitales of Tuna Melt really does do it’s best to capture LRD of old. Everything’s there, the DX bass, the chopped up vocal sample melodies, they synthesizer slides. It’s digital Funk, in that way only Stuart Price can do. We’re loving it, both as a massive slab of frantic synthetic Disco, and for nostalgic reasons, it really does sound like a LRD track, and that bassline is amazing. We’re (probably futilely, hoping this means a return to the LRD brand for Price, but if this is Les Rythmes Digitales swan song, we can be glad it sounded like this.

[Audio] Stuart Price reMixes Pet Shop Boys

pet shop boys

When  you’re reMixing SynthPop legends Pet Shop Boys, do you try an bee all hip with whatever sounds are packing dancefloors at the time, or do you think “fuck it” and go all mid-80s reMix? It seems like producer extraordinaire Stuart Price wisely took the latter path and had dropped a track that could comfortable sit on the B-side of any number of 1985-1987 PSB 12”s, albeit with a little more contemporary studio slickness.

As well as drawing comparisons to Shep Pettibone’s classic, pumping, PSB reMixes, Stuart Price’s take on their new single, Memory Of The Future, surprisingly feels like it has a load of mid-80s Front 242 in it’s DNA. The fact that this Extended Mix sounds like extended mixes of our youth is giving us a nostalgic glow. With it’s vintage drum sounds, digital bass and icy pads, this Price mix obviously goes perfectly with Tennant’s vocal, this kind of track is what we’re most used to hearing him on. An excellent update to the classic PSB sound, this one is going to be on repeat for a while.

Jacques Lu Cont’s ‘Underground’

Jacques Lu Cont

Surprising in more ways than one is Jacques Lu Cont new track, ‘Underground’. Surprising because we weren’t expecting it. Surprising because I think it puts the final nail in the coffin of “we might be getting some new Les Rythmes Digitales” and surprising because despite being reasonably tedious Electro-House, we can’t stop listening to it. The accompanying picture of Stuart Price includes a Kylie chaser, we think you might need it.

Now, I know how sycophantic that sounds, and we don’t mind saying this is not Price’s best work, not by a million miles. It’s not even his most original work but, fuck me, if I hear this in a club or festival this summer I’m going to go mental. It’s that kind of track. A relentless assault of riffs that almost command you to dance and the pounding drums somehow get inside your dead. This is no ‘Church’, and hopefully just a need for Price to express something before he get’s back to writing cleaver music, but seeing as it’s here, enjoy the ride, it’s a wild one.
