Review: Originally starting back in the mid-noughties as a slightly Ed Banger-esque producer, London based Swede Blende has mellowed over time into a more discofied take on the electro sound. He's also forged a bond with the always-hip Eskimo recordings. Here he presents three new sparkly gems: the cowbells and string-laden "Paramount", the raw '80s punky-funk of "Sparkle" and the wall of synths beauty that is closer "Plush". Just lovely.

Review: Blende has been on the London scene for a few years now, building up a following for his classic electro-disco productions. Now he's got a new EP on esteemed Belgian synth-pop label Eskimo, and he's clearly settled right at home. "Fake Love" is excellently produced electro-pop, not unlike a much more polite Uffie, and with some subtle Chic style chords and a big juicy chorus. Villa chop up and re-skewer the original in their remix, and the humorously titled Chordashians provide a pulsating, arpeggiated and melodic version. The Living Islands supply two versions of their Tropical Doom mix (one's a dub), which isn't that doomy but is a pretty lovely Italo-disco excursion.

Running (Knight One remix) - (4:04) 114 BPM
Review: There's something deliciously vibrant and multi-coloured about this single from London-based Swede Blende. "Running" is an attractive chunk of bubbling Balearic disco, painted in bold colours, soaked through with classic electrofunk synths, and boasting a deliciously soulful vocal from Hercules & Love Affair singer Gustaph. Happily, the accompanying remixes are equally as vivacious. Former breakbeat crew Kraak & Smaak deliver a wonderfully fluid, melodious deep house take - all shimmering electronics, soft-focus pads and metronomic rhythms - before Knight One turn the original into a dayglo slab of wide-eyed pop. While radio-friendly, it also sounds like the kind of tackle that would sound good blasting out of a poolside soundsystem, somewhere swelteringly hot and sunny.

Review: Blende is slowly becoming one of Eskimo's "go-to" artists. "Back To Summertime" is the cheery nu-disco/synth-pop fusionist's fourth single for the Belgian label since 2012. The track itself is something of a jaunty, synth-heavy summer shuffler, with Mattie Safer's attractive vocals rising above a bouncy, P-funk influenced backing track laden with kaleidoscopic melody lines. Arguably even better is the remix by This Soft Machine, which recasts the track as a rubbery chunk of sumptuous disco house complete with razor-sharp strings and life-affirming slap bass. To complete a rock solid package, Cavego weighs in with two reworks; a revivalist electrofunk "Extended Remix" and an "After Dinner" remix that re-wires the track as a blissful chunk of live-sounding Balearic disco.
