From At See Compilations: With the sixth part of our La Danse Macabre series we open our focus to more facets of Darkwave music. For the first time in this series we make an in deep view of the electronic aspects of scene music. From Synth Pop and Coldwave to Dark Electronic. Retro aesthetics meets modern songwriting; catchy melodies and experimental sounds complete this collection. And in the end we make a link to older releases with some nice Post Punk tunes. We hope you’ll enjoy this different view of dark music.
Master Mood TV (Mason Monigold) is one half of the Dark Electronic Audio Duo and also mixed the track the remix stems from.
He explains, “We unapologetically make pop music but there’s a lot of content to mine within noise and uncomfortable listening experiences; Annie and I tried to explore that in the original ‘Tinder’ mix. In the remix I wanted to approach it from the opposite direction – focussing on the beat and vocals – sugar coat things a little.”
The Bandcamp release of the Master Mood TV remix also includes tweaked mixes of ‘Tinder’ and ‘Angelie’ as well as a downloadable PDF booklet. Tinder is available on all streaming services March 12.
With a little modern dance, a few farm animals, some strawberry mood-lighting, several groping disembodied hands, and soundtracks often dark and always catchy – these are the DEATHFORMS Top 10 Music Videos of 2018.
Number 10: a place both wonderful and strange – Kristae (The Strawberry Girl)
