Wild 8-bit bleeps and sharp synths introduce the wonderfully bouncy beats of 'Arcade Love', Fran's first single of her debut solo album 'Frantastic', which describes a feeling most of us are all too familiar with: you enter a room and your eyes lock with a perfect stranger. The electrifying moment feels like an eternity, charged by a feeling of intense desire… until it suddenly passes.
Oliver Koletzki then delivers his own interpretation of 'Arcade Love', adding an extra portion of eletronic funk by incorporating more synths and effects while keeping the original's structure intact. The climax? An indulgently cowbell-driven break leading into the final chorus.
Giving way to a softly pulsating beat, Oliver's remix flows into the beautifully rounded ‘Zen Dance’, on which Fran’s sweet voice simply bedazzles the listener as she presents her views on the often mindlessly celebrated hedonism prevalent in dance music culture.
This is a dazzling representation of all that 'Frantastic' stands for: a stunning, singular DIY-vision, brimming with the wonderful versatility of Fran's musical mind.
