Blende feat. Mattie Safer – Back To Summertime

Blende feat. Mattie Safer - Back To Summertim

Time to check out the funky nu-disco number from London based Swedish producer Blende, featuring vocals from Mattie Safer (formerly of The Rapture).

Originally a demo that Blende was about to scrap, it wasn’t until Mattie Safer gave it some sad, soulful vocals that Blende really started to pay attention to what was being created.

You may think ‘Back To Summertime’ reminds you of fun times in the sun, but listen closely, as this track goes deeper than that, considering the complications and burdens of everyday life.

It’s out now via Eskimo Recordings.

Sounds like: The Rapture, Joe Goddard, Hot Chip, The Presets

Gundelach returns with his new single ‘Fjernsynet (Norwegian for “television set”), which is poised to lift him to new heights with its cooly delivered falsetto over a driving rhythm, accentuated by beautiful analog-electronic production.

It is a broody, melancholic and catchy slow burner, perfect to listen to when driving late at night.

The ‘Spiders’ EP is co-produced by Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta). It is mixed by Al Carson (Ariel Pink, Tim Hecker).

‘Fjernsynet’ was released on 8 April via Cosmos (Say Lou Lou, Naomi Pilgrim). The EP is available for pre-order here.

Gundelach – Spiders

Gundelach

Gundelach

Norwegian, bedroom producer, Kai Gundelach has been sharing his songs under the moniker, Gundelach, since 2014. Prior to then, he used to party at clubs in his teens, and later went onto warming up for some of his teenage DJ heroes.

After supporting Say Lou Lou on their album tour, Gundelach sent some demos to Joel Ford (of Ford & Lopatin and Young Ejecta), the two began a collaboration that resulted in him recording his debut EP in New York with Joel and Al Carlson (who has worked with Ariel Pink, amongst others).

His latest gem is ‘Spiders’, which cleverly combines intricate electronics overlaid with wispy vocals and pulsating beats.
