A cut above

Via Zonders

Thanks to good ole TNUC, I've been reintroduced to that fantastic sound that is Diamond Cut.

Cassette Kids - Lying Around (Diamond Cut Remix)
Datostrom - All I Ever Needed (Diamond Cut Remix)
LexiconDon - Heart Attack (Diamond Cut Remix)
Cinnamon Chasers - I Like Watching You (Diamond Cut Remix)
Evermore - Hey Boys and Girls (Diamond Cut Remix)
M'Black - Heartbreak (Diamond Cut Remix)
Hail Social - No Paradise (Diamond Cut Remix)

Once again, my heartstrings are pulled for the same reasons: that sure-fire distortion synth, the lyrics a la lady, and quality pop structures. It's like they came up with a formula and targeted it for me:

"What would Conrad like? What if we could work on a song with someone like Little Boots singing, but with actual lyrics, and turned it into something hard that Moullinex would be proud of, but just a little smoother so Classixx would approve."
"Yeah, and let's use that sweet bass synth that Futurecop! has in Eyes Like Ocean."
"Dude, this will be so jam."

Futurecop! - Eyes Like Ocean
Moullinex - Breakchops
Yacht - Psychic City (Classixx Remix)

Fingers crossed for a x-atlantic adventure to see them do their thing.

clicky for their soundcloud.

P.S. Repost of this sweet Futurecop! fan vid:
