Another slice of Retromania at its finest, Com Truise‘s latest is an ode to the digital emulation synth that purists would argue “ruined electronic music”, or at least killed analogue off for a brief period until it was written back into continuity like a beloved superhero character. Oddly enough, I’m reminded of the all-analogue DMX Krew in this cut’s delectably gooey synth cheese factor. The video’s not your standard copy and paste Youtube pillage project. It looks like it was carefully choreographed to create some stunning recombinant neon psychedelic eye candy. Their debut album Galactic Melt on Ghostly International is available to download now.
