Equateur – The Lava

French producers Equateur are redefining the art of synth with the flaming hot release of their new EP, The Lava.  A movement cleverly dubbed #darkwave, this intricately designed EP boasts a range of silvery sound frequencies that effortlessly weave in and out of heavy basslines and raspy vocals. The EP’s headliner track “The Lava” utilizes this perfect composition of cosmic strings, echoey bass and sultry voices to heat up the mood and lead us through to the MIDI heaven that is Ira. The grand finale Cheval Noir is a rise to prominence that truly gives the EP its distinctive flavor. Don’t be afraid to seize this black horse and ride The Lava journey over and over again.

L’Etranger – Now or Never EP

Ben Thomas of L’Étranger has had quite an exciting year: he recorded an album with Spectrals as lead guitarist, he founded his own record label, Thomorrow, and on top of all of that he released his first EP of the label. His EP, Don’t Ever Change [TMRW01], consists of the songs Now Or Never, Got To Know, Please, and Ask.

L’Etranger – Now or Never EP 

His French moniker, L’Étranger, translates to ‘The Stranger’, but he’s certainly no stranger to the French House music scene. With tropical riffs and groovy beats, these tracks are sun-soaked, washed out, and danceably deep. Dive in!

Figure of 8 – Blue Velvet

My friend Dermot McGowan aka Figure of 8 has a flair for well crafted, emotionally driven tracks. With this take on Lana’s take on the classic Blue Velvet he has outdone himself. Musical shifts, thoughtful arrangement, this one takes us on a hypnotic, sexual joyride. With so much fluff to sort through, this song brings some refreshing substance and a passion that is palpable. Thank you good sir. Well done indeed.
