Review: Danish duo Whomadewho return with yet more gorgeous pop-inflected electro-rock on "Hi & Low" featuring Tomas Hoffding's signature crooning, Jeppe Kjellberg's guitar riffs and Tomas Barfod's smooth beat arrangements. There's also some brilliant remixes on offer of the track
too: Maook's deep, immersive progressive house rendition was impressive, as was Macropsia's version. The Malaysian duo keep the pop sensibilities intact on this irresistible cosmic nu-disco journey, which was the surprising highlight on the release. Keep your ears peeled for this dynamic new duo.
Review: Spanish producer Daniel Inigo (better known as Animal Picnic) and Argentinian counterpart Santiago Garcia join forces to rework a WhoMadeWho track that was first released back in 2016. Where the original was all about the quirky, Hot Chip-ish leftfield pop charm, the Santiago Garcia & Animal Picnic Remix is redolent of the post-punk/pre-house era, when Mute Records was the last word in cutting edge electronica and The Normal's 'Warm Leatherette' sounded like a bulletin from the future. And if you're finding the vocal a little 80s Euro-sounding for comfort, the good news is that it comes with an instrumental attached.
Clark - "Strength Through Fragility" - (2:18) 125 BPM
Nosaj Thing - "2K" - (2:32) 135 BPM
Review: Danish power trio of electro-pop persuasion consisting of of drummer/DJ/producer Tomas Barfod, and the two-headed vocal monster singer/bassist Tomas Hoffding, AKA Bon Homme and singer/guitarist Jeppe Kjellberg present us with a dreamy, deep and ethereal journey much in the vein of their own productions as a continuous mix. Highlight include The Acid's "Ra" (David August Remix), George Fitzgerald's melodic journey track "Your Two Faces" and DJ Tennis with "Diversions" and the Roman Flugel remix of it which is just amazing. All in all a consistent mix that'll help you drift away wonderfully. Available as individual tracks plus a bonus continuous mix.
