Scarlets – Boundaries

Torino’s own Scarlets new single will be out on APRIL77RECORDS on November 1st as a 7inch and on December 14th as digital download produced by Dubka. heck out “Boundaries” a very Cure-esque sounding track but with more of a jagged edge and punch – love the drum sound.

We Are Standard x Dubka

I recently found this remix on Dubka’s myspace, a remix of We Are Standard’s “Last Time”. Dubka is so good at producing tracks that sound so 80s while not making them seem like a novelty thing. I particularly love how he transposes the vocals to sound like a woman. Also that synth guitar solo blows me away. Check out Dubka’s myspace to see what he is up to lately – currently he is producing Ali Love’s album, a synth pop odyssey that Giorgio Moroder would be proud of. Checkout “Smoke and Mirrors” here and “Diminishing Return” here.

Here is Dubka dropping some knowledge on how he achieved that crazy synth solo:

“The synth solo is just very fast programmed midi sent to the Commodore 64 synth I made. What makes it sound more guitar-like is the fact it’s going through an old Boss multi-effects box and I’m doing the pitch-bend live as it recording. The main sort of melodic theme is the same sound but it’s just played live.”

Cazals are finally releasing “What Of Our Future” in France and the USA! Courtesy of The:Hours Entertainment 2.2.2009 in France and 3.3.2009 in the USA!

Shinicihi Osawa turns Poor Innocent Boys into quite a banger sampling Human Resources’ “Dominator”. I like how he uses the guitar part in the beginning.

The Death of Cornelius

Bob Rifo proves to everyone that he is a musical genius with this tune. He channels Vangelis, Giorgio Moroder, Tangerine Dream, Ennio Morricone, along with his raw punk rock emotion and crafts an overture that pays tribute to the mysterious CORNELIUS.
