SummersRadio™ Classic Remixes! Faithless!

SummersRadio™ Classic Remixes! Faithless - 'Salva Mea' (Save Me) (Tuff Mix)/ 'If Loving You Is Wrong' (Inflammable Mix)

Faithless have just released a new remixed single - Insomnia 2.0' - and it's loathed by all! 2015 marks the 20th Anniversary of their breakthrough monster club hit 'Insomnia' from their debut album 'Reverence',  and to celebrate Faithless have released the new 'Avicii Remix' of the tune (available now on iTunes) which will be featured on their upcoming remix album 'Faithless 2.0' in September.

                   

You can check out some of the scathing feedback on the 'Avicii Remix' on Faithless' Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/Faithless?fref=ts and if you dare you can check out the 'Avicii Remix' itself on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh0e_lotkY4

The 'Avicii Remix' is not included in this post because, well - nothing about it suggests that it will ever be a classic remix! Everyone seems to be hating it because they're not Avicii fans - with very few comments about specifics of the remix itself. SummersRadio™ has never featured Avicii in a post, so I reckon we're not fans either. However, the worst thing about this remix is the fact that it's a 'radio edit' - it literally chops the 8:47 original down to just three minutes - 3:04 to be precise. That is just trying to condense too much awesome into too little time and it just ends all too quickly, making everyone hate it in the process. You just feel kind of ripped off after listening to it.

The full tracklisting for the remix album 'Faithless 2.0' is yet to be revealed, but I suspect/ hope that there may be a much longer, or proper, full 'Avicii Remix' forthcoming with some better paced eight or ten minute version that is more bearable. Or perhaps there's also a full 'Insomnia 2.0' remix EP forthcoming... or perhaps not, we'll see.

The remix itself is really not that different - Avicii pitches Maxi Jazz's voice down (thankfully - pitching up vocals for remixes is just wrong!) in this version which makes it even more distinct. Beyond that, there's nothing radical going on here - Faithless just should have chose someone more respected/ experienced to remix the track - rather than just whoever is currently the most popular. I've loved Faithless for two decades - and 'Radio Edit' aside, this new remix just isn't worthy!

So enough about 'Insomnia 2.0' (Avicii Remix) (Radio Edit)! While the original 'Insomnia' is indeed a classic, it was Faithless' previous single - 'Salva Mea' (Save Me) - that first blew me away and turned me into a superfan (specifically the 'Tuff Mix') several months before 'Insomnia' was released. ('Salva Mea' was first released in July 1995, followed by 'Insomnia' in November '95 - and both were re-released in '96/ '97). It made the top 10 in the U.K., and it was the band's first number one hit on the Billboard Dance Club charts.

What made 'Salva Mea (Save Me)' - the 'Tuff Mix' so epic was the dramatic operatic intro, the debut of Maxi Jazz's ominous voice, and of course the keyboard hooks... Enjoy!



'If Loving You Is Wrong' was released as the fourth single from 'Reverence' in 1996 - this is the 'Inflammable Mix' - another classic early Faithless remix... Enjoy!

SummersRadio™ New Music! The Chemical Brothers Featuring St. Vincent - 'Under Neon Lights'

The Chemical Brothers have just released another new song from their forthcoming new album 'Born In The Echoes' online today! 'Under Neon Lights' features guest vocalist Annie Clark aka St. Vincent and it's the third new song that the duo have released online from the album which is out on July 17th on Astralwerks.

                   

'Under Neon Lights' is a rather dark psychedelic number featuring St. Vincent that mentions suicide and asks the question 'is this really all I want?'... Enjoy!

I doesn't indicate which song is being played in this thirty second clip - but judging by it's sound, I reckon it's one of the two Chemical Brothers produced tracks. Thirty seconds isn't much to go on, but this is thirty seconds of awesomeness - I can't wait to hear more... Enjoy!



Rare Remix! This is the 'Extended' version of 'Mr. Disco' (originally from their 1989 album 'Technique') mixed by cfduns in 2013(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaUTJwffM7WocfWUh8xR8Cg)... Enjoy!

SummersRadio™ New Music! Soul Trader!

SummersRadio™ New Music! Soul Trader - 'Love/ Techno' (Original Mix)

Soul Trader have posted a new song online called 'Love/ Techno'! Little is known about Soul Trader at this point - but we do know that this is their debut single - and that it will be the first release on Funkagenda's new Open Source Music imprint. The release date is still yet to be announced.

                   

If there's any justice 'Love/ Techno' will become a huge underground club hit. Everyone will be singing 'I'm in love with the techno'! The production - particularly in the breakdowns - is amazing. Please note that this is an edit - I will post the full track when it becomes available... Enjoy!

SummersRadio™ New Music! The Orb!

SummersRadio™ New Music! The Orb - 'Moonbuilding 2703 AD' (Meltdown Edit)

The Orb have posted new music online today from their forthcoming new album (their 13th) called 'Moonbuilding 2703 AD'! The band have posted the title track - the 'Meltdown Edit' - which features portions of each of the seven songs on the album.

'Moonbuilding 2703 AD' is scheduled for release on June 22nd on Kompakt. You can pre-order the album now on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/de/album/moonbuilding-2703-ad/id992280053?ls=1

                   

Here's the album's tracklisting:

1."God’s Mirrorball"  14:44
2."Moonscapes 2703 BC"  14:40
3."Lunar Caves"  9:16
4."Moonbuilding 2703 AD"  13:04
5."Dilla’s Moon Quake" ((The Orb’s Tribute to J Dilla)) 
6."Moon Quake (Slice of Silver)"  8:44
7."Moon Quake 6"  4:22

This 'Meltdown Edit' of 'Moonbuilding 2703 AD' is a nice taster of what we can expect from the new album - it certainly has great potential. I'm not a fan of the crackling bit though - I've never been a fan of crackling on recordings - real or fake! However I do find the opening sample quite amusing... Enjoy!
