Paris-based duo Frankfurt Express (a ferry service, fact fans) cites their influences as Trevor Horn, the EMU Emulator II and contemporary French electronic acts. Certainly, there's something of Horn's 1980s pop work on "Wake Up", a decidedly sweet synth-pop jam with crystalline melodies and vintage touches aplenty. The remix package includes a Shep Pettibone style rework from Lifelike (think edit-heavy, delay-laden drums and Europop-influenced synths), a full-on freestyle assault from FM Attack (bold but cheap synth melodies, suitably wobbly synth-bass etc) and a sparkling electro-pop version from Sferro. It's all pretty authentic and undeniably attractive.
