Aid and Visitor and remix, oh my!!! Praise be to the musical powers that be, because one of my fave indie electronica bands, Visitor, is back with a bang! If you don’t know who they are, all you need to know is this: they’ve released on Alan Braxe’s Vulture label, they make quality 80s/disco-inspired indie synth pop and they are here to rock your ears!
Especially with a remix of a producer as talented as Monsieur Adi – Adi & Visitor is a GENIUS combination. Taking the high drama of his debut single ‘Fire Fire Fire’, Visitor somehow manage to mellow it out a little and yet add extra synth-rock glitter and glamour all at the same time.
Adi’s original incorporates his trademark incredible production skills and epic emotive quality that enables his tracks to take you on a journey through space and time. But Blue Satellite has added robotic, razor sharp syths, stabs and a squelchy, growling bassline to create a fierce, futuristic and frankly fabulous take on Fire Fire Fire, all the while incorporating Adi’s Daft Punk-esque retro chic guitar breakdown, lush pianos, intense layers of melody and the impression that you’re in a full-scale orchestral electral production!
