New Music // Zero 7 – On My Own (12″ Version)

12 Nov

The electronic duo of Zero 7 are back with two new tracks, On My Own and Don’t Call It Love, which will most likely show up on their next LP, whenever it comes.

On My Own shows us a side of Zero 7 we haven’t quite heard before. Built around a slinky bassline and a more uptempo groove than we’re used to from these masters of chill, this track seems better suited for a darkened club than a coffeehouse.

It’s a welcome progression from a band that could’ve easily been written off at this stage in their career. Whether or not their next album lives up to the promise of these new tracks remains to be seen, but for the moment at least Zero 7 is back and sounding as good as they ever have.

New Music // Chvrches – Lies (Tourist Remix)

8 Nov

London based electronic producer Tourist has crafted a beautifully reimagined version of Chvrches stellar track Lies. Stripping it down to the vocal framework and then slow building it into something completely new, Tourist takes an already amazing track and proves he can make it his own with hair raising results. This is what quality remixing sounds like.
