Indie pop duo Peppermint Heaven are set to build on the momentum created by their hugely successful ‘Curious Things’ album with the release of their brand new single ‘Lessons In Love’. Their unique brand of 80’s style indie pop has earned them a cult following over the last five years, and the new single looks set to continue their meteoric rise.
Juno & Spark have had quite the year so far, receiving critical acclaim for their last album, which also garnered a great deal of support from the Spotify playlist community. The album was a brave & unequivocally unique take on 80’s music, in a contemporary production setting, seamlessly blending the old & new with an incredible performance & no small amount of fun. ‘You’ (Oscuro Remix), ‘Sun Goes Down’ (Chords Remix) and ‘Monday Morning’ (Revaux Remix) have proved extremely popular, generating over 50,000 streams and grabbing listeners far and wide with their honest, vintage sound.
Ahead of their brand new album (Autumn 2018) – The prolific U.S Duo have roped in the help of some of the UK’s finest underground, electronic talent on remix duties. Joe Danvers has been slowly building a diverse catalog of dance music since moving to London in 2015. Previous EP’s have been released on house staple FINA Records, the eclectic Wotnot Music and Ben Gomori’s Monologues label. Future EP’s are currently lined up with London’s legendary CoOp Presents collective, and Bristol’s Boogie Cafe. Danvers latest EP Interludes (released on Wotnot) has received praise & radio play from Gilles Peterson, Detroit Swindle & Bradley Zero to name a few. It spans broken beat, house, jazz and lofi, with remixes from Warren Xclnce, Joe Armon-Jones & Frits Wentink.
Danvers also runs The Future Is Broken, a fortnightly mix series of unconventional but accessible dance music, so far guests have included Harry Wolfman, Athlete Whippet & Mr Redley. Aside from his solo production work, Danvers is one half of Kassian, who are yet to go public, but have EP’s lined up with Heist Recordings, Phonica White & Defected Records, due for release in late 2018 and early ‘19.
Danvers takes on the remix of the album track ‘Break Your Fall’ and as the name suggests, it’s a full blown assault of vintage breaks. Building with epic crescendos and analogue synths, it’s a powerful blend of retro and modern soundscapes.
