Legendary producer Johnny Jewel, boss of the label Italians Do It Better, has been quite active lately! Today he shared a remix from Chicago producer Drew Conn, a.k.a. Visione, of Chromatics' "Tick Of The Clock." If you're fan of the band you already know that the original single is part of "Drive" movie soundtrack. Visione's remix of this single is pretty much epic! Besides respecting the feeling from the original track, he adds some heavy crispy synths taking off the perspective of the "driver" inducing the listener to pay attention to this piece. Around the min 1:56 is where all [...]

Golden Scissors' favorites, Kraak & Smaak are back with a delightful remix of The Chromatics' highly acclaimed "Kill For Love." Seeing as we're big fans of both acts involved, it's impossible not to share this work with you. Their take on the original track couldn't be more exciting. Before you click play, you must know that the vocals are the main character of this piece, right up until the end, while the rest of the instrumental arrangement is left behind and will fill the track while you're already rapt by the sweet vocals of Ruth Radelet. Around 1:41, the bassline [...]
2012 was a significant year for blasting the "male electro musician" typecast. Throughout the years, I have heard a bevy of male-dominated electronic music, and from what I can make of these past twelve months, women have undeniably entered the electro genre - and they are diminishing this stereotype with full force. Coming from all corners of the world, these synth-empowered females have been welcoming interest and praise from magazines and music blogs across the board - and let me say, the attention is well deserved. They don’t hide behind their swarms of synth; these women can [...]

Definitely the Chromatics are here to stay... hopefully forever.

Johnny Jewel is gifting us with a new/old mix called "Running From The Sun," which contains sounds from the sessions for Chromatics’ "Kill For Love." I've copied from his Soundcloud account his thoughts about this release, check it out below: Jet lagged & buzzing from Friday's show in Paris, I couldn't sleep...so I stayed up all night with Oko talking about color based dreams while blending these tracks together. Since the album came out, a lot of people on the road have been telling us they are curious to hear some of the unreleased [...]
Just a few months after Kill For Love , Johnny Jewel, Ruth Radelet and Adam Miller (aka Chromatics ) are already back with a new tune! "Looking For Love" is edited down from an epic 17-minute piece commissioned for Chanel's latest runway show. This haunting song features Radelet's whispery vocals over a polished hypnotic beat. The structure is linear, with a few subtle shifts here and there, and the result is classy and elegant. "Looking For Love" will appear on After Dark 2 [...]
Zhasněte světla, zavřete okna, zatáhněte z části závěsy, nechte měkké měsíční světlo, aby prosvětlilo přítmí pokoje, vezměte si vaše oblíbené pití, pohodlně se posaďte do křesla, uvolněte se, zmáčkněte na ovladači play, zavřete oči a nechte se 90 minut unášet na vlnách vlastního filmu. I tak by se dal charakterizovat dojem z poslechu alba Kill For Love Oregonské kapely Chromatics . Johnny Jewel je hlavou i tělem Chromatics, který již na předchozí debutové desce Night Drive (2007) prokázal cit pro noirové synth-popové melodie a hypnotické filmové nálady. Není tedy [...]

Excellent remix this one from Amtrac for "Birds Of Paradise" from Chromatics. I was a little apprehensive before listening to it, but this is really gorgeous. This remix is full of love and sweetness. I don't know if there is a release date for it, but at least we can enjoy it!
