That time of the week again, kicking things off right away with a cover of one of my favourite Modeselektor tracks. It most certainly does it justice, and it's especially nice to hear Modeselektor's unique breed of electronic transfer well into other styles. And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't totally in love with the pitch bends on the intro.
Next is another track I saw thanks to a cheeky reblog and oh my, where do I begin. So many touchstones to reference; shades of UNKLE, Apparat, Trentemøller, a smidgen of Post-Rock and perhaps some fragments of The Knife too, all wrapped up in a killer bassline. I'm loving the builds in intensity thoroughout. Definitely going to keep my eye on these two for future coverage.
And finally yet another piece from Celadon City. He teased not too long ago that he'd got an auto-tune setup working and I've been waiting on the results ever since. The vocals make a nice addition to the usual feel good vibes of CC's output, albeit with a more downbeat lyrical angle. There's still a lot of room to experiment and improve, but I'll always support people tweaking and otherwise fiddling with vocals.
