Faded Ranger made their hypnotizing debut earlier this year with a sparkling trio of singles - Be On The Lookout, Get Together (Right Now) and Blindfolds. Now the duo is ready to unveil their debut LP, Mechanical Tonight,
in its full glory. Bringing together Nick Maurer‘s gift for bite-size
storytelling and Neville Attree‘s intricate, melodic arrangements, the
album is an infectious collection of tracks that resonate with a
distinctive crossover appeal, while the dynamic beats ensure it still
gravitates towards the dance floor.Ex-Greenskeepe
rs frontman Maurer (Chicago) and Gumption Recordings founder Attree
(London) first met while DJing at a notorious outdoor party called
Girl’s Camp in their adopted home of Heidelberg. Faded Ranger
stumbled into existence soon after and has come to represent a meeting
of minds borne out of circumstance and driven by musical legacy. Mechanical Tonight
may be retro in its outlook as the pair work the presence of past
influences out of their systems, but the melting pot of ideas and
references converge at a point of undeniable modern appeal.
On the 4th single from his highly acclaimed 4th LP "After Forever", Kasper Bjørke puts his disco noir anthem "Apart" into the safe hands of two luminary remixing talents. The original version of "Apart"
(which is to be found on the digital single release and the album) was
selected as "Tune of The Month" in MixMag in the September issue,
stating: “Its nothing short of genius… Kasper absolutely nailed it”. On
the digital and limited edition 12” vinyl there are two epic remixes by
Kompakt Records’ head honcho Michael Mayer and renowned UK producer Ewan Pearson. Michael Mayer
gives the tune's melancholy synth pop a
n epic feel, remaking it for the deepest and darkest of big room
dancefloors, adding a discombobulating synth drone and ramping up the
intensity levels whilst Ewan Pearson's remix adds a High NRG vibe
to expose the yearning vocal before adding layers of arpeggios and
synthesizers to an utterly irresistible, motorik pulse with some epic
After receiving heaps of positive response to his track 'Marbled Blood', a vocal collaboraton with Soho Rezanejad that is featured on his recent album 'After Forever', Kasper Bjørke decided to complement this beloved with a tripnotic visual journey that has recently been described by The Ransom Note's editors as a "visual mind melter"....
Described as "...a dark, swirling vortex of tension and synth-based suspense" we see a new, stunning video that accompanies Darkness Falls' brand new single "The Answer" which is the first prequel for the bands sophomore album that is roughly scheduled for early 2015. Directed by Katja Boom
the high definition cut beams us behind the scenes of the speedracing
world whilst the Danish purveyors of PostWave swirl along a dramtic,
longing tune that unravels a yet unheard but still familiar vibe within
Darkness Falls' music.
Right in time for their debut album "Mechanical Tonight" we see the advent of Faded Ranger's video for "Get Together"
which is like a collection of postcards. Some from the beach, some from
the forest, and some sent by a whale on hallucinogens - In fact, the
whole thing has the aesthetic of half nature show, half minimalist
pop-art acid trip directed by The Flashbacker. The tune itself is
a grooving house number with galactic sounding synths and Nick Maurer's
loopy baritone lulling you into romantic availability, perfectly
suitable for late fall rooftop jams.
