Octo Octa, Kim Ann Foxman, Theo Kottis and Gareth Jones, among others, have contributed to The Neon Remixed, a 17-track remix package of tracks from Erasure's 2020 album of the same name. Alongside Erasure's excellent Secrets track, my fav picks are Theo Kottis's version of Kid You’re Not Alone, Kim Ann Foxman’s Heaven Mix of Secrets and Octo Octa’s 14 minute Psychedelic Visions Disco Dub of Secrets.

I Start Counting - Talk About The Weather

Mute have unearthed an obscure 80s electronic Pop gem called Talk About The Weather from I Start Counting, a band they signed in 1982.

With the duo, Simon Leonard and David Baker, they're releasing the track on cassette later this year alongside another bunch of demos from the mid-eighties. Here's some useful blurb from the press release:

I Start Counting are David Baker and Simon Leonard. The duo formed in 1982 and signed to Mute in 1984. Their first singles, ‘Letters to a Friend’ and ‘Still Smiling’, were both produced by Daniel Miller and preceded two album releases, My Translucent Hands (1986) and Fused (1989). By the beginning of the 90s, Baker and Leonard had become Fortran 5, releasing three albums for the label, before reincarnating in 1996 as Komputer, the name they continue to record under.

These cassette releases collate a selection of demos of songs from 1985 and 1986 respectively, some of the songs have never been heard before, others went on to be recorded and released. 

Baker and Leonard, through all their iterations, have a very British knack of weaving pop masterpieces from often suburban and mundane subject matter - ‘Talk About The Weather’ and ‘625’ deal with youthful crushes and TV addiction and throughout their releases the duo take on small town discos, big dirty cities, young love and serial killers through the prism of electronics such Korg PolySix and the Greengate DS3 sampler.

Cromby feat. Tee Amara - Qué Sientes

Chris McCormick, aka Northern Ireland producer Cromby, has teamed up with Spanish singer Tee Amara on a gorgeous track called Qué Sientes; it's electronic Pop perfection.

Released on Phantasy Sound, it comes with a subtly stripped-back remix from Nicola Cruz and an instrumental that retains the upbeat Electro vibe.

Golden Diskó Ship - Limping over the Prairies

I'm happy to report that Theresa Stroetges' Golden Diskó Ship project continues to receive attention, I felt her Araceae album from last year flew under the mainstream radar. Performance artist Anja Ibsch has made a video for Limping over the Prairies, playing on themes of environmental change, where natural beauty has morphed into something quite unrecognisable and sinister.
