[Indie/Synth-Pop] Yoke Lore – Goodpain (Blondage Remix)

YOKE LORE
Goodpain (Blondage Remix)

Brooklyn based indie-pop auteur Adrian Galvin (formerly of Walk the Moon) spins lush webs of synth soaked pop music under the Yoke Lore moniker, and closed out 2017 with the release of an excellent EP: Goodpain. This past weekend, Yoke Lore’s Goodpain was buoyed by the release of an accompanying Goodpain Remixes sister-EP featuring indie mainstays including Yeasayer, Chad Valley, Shy Girls and more; and we’ve been happily consuming it in the time since.

Standing tall among Yoke Lore’s impressive offering of remixes is Danish electro-pop duo Blondage‘s sparkling treatment of the EP’s title track “Goodpain”. Blondage unravels Lore’s original melody, infusing their revision with a healthy dose of soulful piano stabs, and a bent take on its hooky synth line. Instrumentally, the pair manage to simultaneously gloss up their version of the tune, while also painting flecks of a more minimal approach to pop music throughout. Be sure to check out the rest of Yoke Lore’s Goodpain Remixes EP, but until then stream Blondage’s remix of “Goodpain” above.

[Electro] Birthdayy Partyy – Unwrapped feat. Rico Act

Birthdayy Partyy
Unwrapped (ft. Rico Act)

For each of us Birthday parties are a once a year event. However Birthdayy Partyy is here to make sure the party doesn’t stop ever. This duo of twins has come forth with their debut single “Unwrapped” featuring rapper Rico Act. Break out the balloons, red solo cups and any other gear you need, Birthdayy Partyy has officially started.

Coming from Chicago these two have obviously been influenced by house music, but their song isn’t as straightforward as that. The hip-hop introduction really sets the stage for what’s to come – that being some dirty basslines blending the groove of G house with the energy of electro. “Unwrapped” doesn’t stop their, the song changes with the second drop, but we’ll leave that as a surprise for you. It’s only their first single and we’re already at the edge of our seat for more. Safe to say we won’t be leaving Birthdayy Partyy anytime soon! Make sure to take “Unwrapped” home with you by grabbing the free download.

We had a couple firsts on this episode with Brian, half of DJ duo Cosmic Crates, in the studio for a live mixing sesh. Before we got into that that, I opened up playing catch up on some of my favorite new indie rock/pop releases from Jay Som, The Sufis, Frankie Cosmos, Slenderbodies and more. When Brian joins for the second half, we chop it up about the Cosmic Crates project, his experience growing up in Detroit and thoughts on the state of electronic music today. For the final hour, we had a fun live b2b mixing session sharing some deep and hazy house cuts.

[Electro] Solstis – Open Your Eyes

Solstis
Open Your Eyes

It may take some time, but electro is definitely making a comeback. Although the style can be split between BPMs, the sound is much the same and today we’re sharing with you a midtempo marvel called “Open Your Eyes” by Solstis. This original is the third single off the duo’s upcoming debut album set for release next month.

“Open Your Eyes” doesn’t pull any punches with its warehouse ready basslines that are full of aggression and grit. This industrial-influenced monster may not be as fast paced as a lot of electro out there, but Solstis manages to input enough groove to get the perfect swing for a headbanger’s anthem. Raw, unrefined and truly a work of bass-driven art, “Open Your Eyes” is likely to continue to terrorize sets until the end of Summer 2018 and beyond. Best part about it is it’s a free download!
