We all know that already many attempts, ranging from Moroder to Mills, were made to compose an appropriate score for Fritz Lang’s masterpiece ‘Metropolis’, but what about the music of the movie’s infamous night-club ‘Yoshiwara’? Did you ever asked yourself how a ‘party’ in there sounds like? To which music Evil Maria does dance to? The soundtrack of a cataclysmal seduction?
Remute‘s new album is focusing on this particular key scene and transcribes fictitious moods, events and vibrations into a retro-futuristic, synthwave-driven musical language enriched with the analog sonic warmth of 80s Roland and Oberheim gear.
This album or let’s say ‘speculative mixtape’ will be co-released by US synthwave label of the moment ‘Telefuture’ on good old vintage cassette tape and marks a huge step away from Remute’s accustomed genre territories into something quite unusual.
released July 20, 2015
All tracks written and produced by Remute.
With a little help of Roland Oberheim.
