[Audio] The Penelopes reMix Lana Del Ray’s ‘Ultraviolence’

 

Lana Del Ray

We’re generally not massive fans of Lana Del Ray reMixes, some things can become a bit tedious, but our interest was piqued when we heard that Lana herself has requested London based French ElectroPop duo The Penelopes to delver a reMix for her forthcoming new single Ultraviolence, the title track of her latest LP. In fine form on this one, The Penelopes hit the ground running with a tune that is relentless in it’s infectiousness.

Fun and funky, The Penelopes’ reMix lifts the track from Pop gloom to a euphoric dancefloor place. Underpinned by a drivingly optimistic synth bass, the track effortlessly flows between majestic Pop, Chicago House and slinky Nu-Disco, trading on an uplifting piano hook and a subtle horn section. Del Ray’s voice, which can grate at times, sound luscious and hazy here, a smokey chanteuse amidst a sea of punchy Disco sounds. The Penelopes are on a roll right now and this reMix (which, let’s face it; is pretty high profile) should see them gaining more of the mainstream recognition they so much deserve.

[Audio] Ronika reMixes The Penelopes’ ‘Time To Shine’

London based French duo The Penelopes recent single Time To Shine, a record that we called “Massive” with all it’s moody bombast and stadium ElectroPop leaning, is about to get a bit Massive-er. Fresh from releasing one of the greatest albums of all time, Boogie juggernaut Ronika has contributed to the Time to Shine reMix package with this timeless House mix.

Chicago meets Acid meets Rave in this highly kinetic four and a half minutes. Ronika really keeps the energy going with undulating purcussion and a plethora of classic sounds. At it’s hart a Piano House tune, Ronika brings a load of early 90s elements to the, from the Rave keys to the use of the vocals as samples. This should really be played extremely loud in a field full of revellers, but through your headphones on a sunny day it’ll put just as big a grin on your face.

[Audio] The Penelopes reMix We Have Band’s ‘Modulate’

We have Band

 

Indie-Electro juggernaut We Have Band released their new single Modulate last month. Taken from the British three-piece’s recent album Movements, the track, and it’s video, have already been hyped as hell. Now here comes our favourite French Londoners The Penelopes to deliver a storming retro Electro remix of the track that we are proud to première right here.

The Penelopes turn in a big chugging ElectroPop tune. Verging on Electro-Rock in places, the track is a powerhouse of driving synth bass and growling riffs. When the chorus hits, The Penelopes lighten things up a little with airy melodies and lush pads, before diving headfirst back into the B-Boy beats and relentless apreggios. The Penelopes are really expanding their sonic pallet recently; producing some awesome results. This ecclectic mix is just another feather in their cap.

The Penelopes

Massive. That’s the best word to describe the new single from London based French ElectroPop duo The Penelopes. Time To Shine has been released as a free download and is their first original release since their 2012 album Never Live Another Yesterday. In many ways it marks a district departure from the summery (and quite ‘of the time’) Indie-ElectroPop of their previous work as they morph into something more mature and rich.

The contrast here of the growling and moody sonic pallet and the euphoric, upbeat nature of the track is what really lets this track shine. Like The Sisters Of Mercy gone shiny ElectroPop, Time To Shine is brooding 80s power Rock preformed on shimmering synthesizers, with all the requisite pomp and circumstance. Chugging bass, gritty synths and Axel’s croon backed up with some huge, Morrison-esque female vox and squealing leads, this is stadium SynthPop at it’s finest.

[Download] The Penelopes reMix The Cure’s ‘Just Like Heaven’

 

The Cure

How would you go about taking a beloved late-80s IndiePop classic and serving it up to the desert island Disco masses? Well, just ask London based French ElectroPop duo The Penelopes; ‘cos they’ve turned in this equatorial Pop masterpiece  reMix of The Cure’s Just Like Heaven.

Too cheery to ever really have been Goth, The Cure sound the most upbeat they’ve ever been as The Penelopes wash the track in the most Tropical of vibes. Steely purcussion, pulsing synth basses and a hand-clapping Disco beat all work surprisingly well with Robert Smith’s vocal. The Penelopes produce what might be their densest track to date, loading the four and a half minutes with layers of pads and melodies, all coming together for an uplifting and epic experience.
