Candide – Scaredy Cat

Candide

Hugh kick on this coupled with the soothing warm vocals of Candice Strongwater.   I like the blend of synthpop with electronic dance production and this song is a perfect representation of that sound.     

Really like this remix as well:

Annie – Chewing Gum (Mylo Remix)

As we await Erasure’s 16th full length album due out this September, I thought I would pull up a hit from 2004 from erasure’s new producer, Richard X.

From the wiki page:

 

Chewing Gum” is a song by Norwegian recording artist Annie from her debut album, Anniemal (2004). Written by Richard X and Hannah Robinson, the song is based on metaphor which likens men to chewing gum.

Richard X has a resume of solid pop hits and is a pleasant surprise to me to be overseeing Erasure’s new album.
On this particular cut however, we have Mylo taking over remix duties. Mylo is another artist I’m still waiting to hear a full length from. The man knows who to produce music, no doubt about it.
