This week one of Brooklyn’s finest purveyors of synthesizer goodness AIMES drops his new release via Wonder Stories. It’s a companion to his huge single of earlier this year, Burnin’ featuring five new versions of the tune. This new reMix collection brings together such talent as Auxiliary Tha Masterfader, A Copycat, Perdido Key, Rocco Desentis; and this grinding monster from London Electro hounds Tronik Youth.
As you’ll no doubt be aware, the original was a driving and summery House tune that featured some soulful vocals from NY resident Javi; this is completely flipped as Tronik Youth give the track an East London basement club vibe. A stuttering and ominous Electro rework that despite being abrasive and relentless retains a cheeky charm. Chainsaw synths and squealing leads replace the poolside sounds of the original as Tronik Youth put together a strobe-light oddessy for the early hours. Now there’s a Burnin’ for every occasion!
Tronik Youth’s forthcoming new single, Pain Relief, is due to drop at the end of this month with a bunch of sweet reMixes from he likes of KiWi and Gameboyz. The pick of the pack, however, is easily this slick Disco reworking from sometime Cassette Cluber Ben Macklin. Get your shades on for this one.
Macklin’s version of Pain Relief certainly does what it says on the tin,. A soothing flow of warm synths and enveloping beats. A smooth Dreamwave feel and pumping beat combine into slo-mo dancefloor gold. A mirrorballed symphony of slick sounds, pads that wrap you in their cool and a laid back tide that whisks you along with it.

Tronik Youth’s Pain Relief is released 28th February/
Next month, British Electro-Art-Poppers Decibels release their new single. Ruza is a follow-up to last year’s acclaimed The Lesser, which received a fir bit of coverage and airplay. Ruza builds of that success to deliver a confident sequel that’s sure to fine appreciation amongst Indie and Electro fans alike, and with Holmes Price, Tronik Youth and Skeleton Army stepping up for reMix duties, there’s something for everyone.
Ruza is an ecclectic tune. Reminiscent of Hot Chip at their most playful with Clock Opera as their backing band. A rowdy orchestra of rolling basslines and random percussion, all complimented with buzzing synths and rich pads. A listless vocal just adds to the breezy IndiePop feel, expect to be hearing this tune, a lot, over festival season. Holmes Price takes that airy groove and runs with it, whipping up a Tropical injection with a classic House core. If the original is a track for hot sunny days, this mix if for the nights that follow. Tronik Youth, on the other hand, take the track to a slightly grittier place with raw beats and riffs straight out of a grimy London warehouse. Joining them on the release is a classy House mix from Skeleton Army to complete a solid package. Look out for this one.

We’ve already hit you with Ali Love’s forthcoming single ‘Love Harder’ and in our excitement for the single dropping we’ve can’t help but share with you two reMixes from the release.
Tronik Youth turn in quite a minimal, quite old school House, mix that has some SynthPop overtones that all works pretty well together while Jaymo & Andy George’s wonky rave reMix beefs up the original.
Old school ElectroClash (if there can be such a thing?) nightclub legend Spencer Product explodes from the New York scene once more with a new release on Coco Machette.
The Original Mix of ‘We Bite!’ is pretty standard ElectrocClash fare, I was always a little suspicious of ElectroClash, but there are some excellent reMixes from current BlogHouse darlings Designer Drugs and Tronik Youth the former putting the groove back into the song and the latter creating a robotic disco epic.
The week in Bangers: While electronic rumors isn’t strictly an Electro-House blog, we do cover a lot of Electro-House that crosses over in to our realm. So many good club tunes and reMixes surface each week we can’t (and wouldn’t) cover them all, so this is a round up of some of the best from the week that we didn’t have time to dedicate individual posts to…
