Just found this Metronomy remix of Joakim’s disco-nouveau jammer ‘Spiders’. Forgoing his usual wacky shenanigans (which tend to err on the miss side of the hit-miss continuum), the French producer shoots this one right up into space and lands it in a restrained chaos of zipping arpeggios and epic pads. A nice execution of emotionally heightened melody builds betraying their perfectly distilled synthetic creation.
I don’t want to lose it
You don’t want to leave it
I don’t want to fake it
You don’t want to say it.
An older Joakim song ‘Lonely Hearts’, off of 2007’s Monsters and Silly Songs
