This June one of Nu-Disco, House and SynthWave's most ubiquitous and well respected figures Freak You unleashes his swansong, a massive Pop House tune titled There You Are.
Assisting him in rocking your world is London ElectroPop superstar Bright Light Bright Light. Fresh from I Wish We Were Leaving, his collaboration with Sir Elton John, BLx2 is the icing on this deep and infectious House monster you're sure to be hearing a lot of over the Summer.
The release comes full to bursting point with some of the hottest reMix talent around. Deep, floorfilling club sounds provided by Edwin Van Cleef sit next to lush and emotional retro SynthWave from Starcadian, while Cosmonaut Grechko transports us back in time with a classic early 90s House tune and She's The Queen take us straight to the big room.
France's Freak You remains an enigma, despite being one of the most well known figures on the Nu-Disco and House music scenes. As head-honcho of On The Fruit Records he's been responsible for some of the biggest club releases in the past few years and as a producer, DJ and reMixer he's consistently won fans over with his classic, timeless, floorfillers. Also part of electronic act LoFrames with James Yuill, Freak You continues to be at the forefront of innovative, yet Poppy, dance music.
Bright Light Bright Light is the moniker of Welsh born, London based Rod Thomas who released his début album Make Me Believe In Hope last year to rave reviews. Hailed by Sunday Times Culture as "a songwriter of extraordinary dexterity", by Elton John as the hottest new thing in music, ending up at no.4 in the Guardian Reader's Albums of 2012 poll, and touring with Ellie Goulding, Erasure and Scissor Sisters, it's clear that his late 80s/early 90s tinged ElectroPop has found quite a few fans.
Rod, "the boy Robyn in all but name" according to the NME, is performer, songwriter, producer and DJ.
About the reMixes
There You Are gets the reMix treatment from some of the most exciting names in electronic music. Acclaimed Dreamwave/Nu-Disco/House producer Edwin Van Cleef is up first with the kind of crowd pleaser he is so known for. Starcadian, who's been receiving a lot of press recently for his Disco tinged SynthWave and his epic music videos, delivers a blissful nostalgia trip. The early 90s House scene is perfectly captured by Cosmonaut Grechko on his shiny piano jam and ElectroPop giants She's The Queen serve up a huge Progressive House track for the biggest dancefloors.
Formed after the success of the 'electronic rumors volume 1' compilation (released in association with Ninthwave Records as a boutique electronic music outlet concentrating on quality over quantity, developing artists and releasing some of the best synthesizer music around.
