Alright, so I’ve been holding onto these/debating whether or not to release them. I recorded them originally back in March, but they needed work. So I deleted everything, but school kept me too busy to really work on it. After finals, I was finally able to take this project back to the studio and make the necessary changes. Essentially, The Love Club was inspired by the myriad of nu disco and funk tracks I had been coming across all spring. I began putting together a set, but I also had several other gems that I wasn’t sure how to incorporate. So inevitably I ended up splitting things up into two sets and then everything fell into place. Ladies and dudes, I give you… The Love Club.
Looking through Architecture In Helsinki‘s press photos, it sure does look like they have a lot of fun together. I’d love to be part of a band like that. Guess that’s one of the drawbacks of being a solo artist, eh? Plus they seem pretty free form with their band overall, sometimes performing with 8 members on stage, other times just 4 or 5. If you’re looking for another taste of AIH’s sound, I highly suggest this number off their Moment Bends LP: Contact High
Andras Fox, another Australian producer, takes their track “I Might Survive” off to another level of airy delight!
p.s. It’s officially final week for me, so if I’m slackin this week… too bad!
Yuksek continues his stream of collaborations with The Magician on this sleek remix of Yuksek’s “Always On The Run”. I’m guessing Yuksek chooses to don the Peter moniker when working with The Magician (aka Stephane Fassano, former member of Aeroplane) simply because it sounds good, like the name of a children’s book or a sweet band name, obviously. Anywho, the duo team up again on this almost new wave sounding house remix of Yuksek’s indie pop vocal.
And if you haven’t heard their powerful old school house track “On My Brain” with the multi-talented Sophie Galpin, well quit slackin…
