What might be the outcome of taking a rather dreamy pulse-based trance inducing track, stripping it back, adding an addictive disco electronic undertone and phasing ghost-like vocals here and there (and rather rare)…? Have a listen and then you will know :)
When you dig the original of a song so much that you can't imagine how anybody could possibly ever dissect it and re-embody it in an alternate format, sometimes you are pleasantly surprised when indeed someone comes along who capably does just that - with flair, good taste and a handful of cards up their sleeve, dealt ever so cleverly within the remix they have created. That's what we're talking about with this Sounds of Sputnik take on Ummagma's 'Lama'.
Synthpop, Electronica, Indietronica, Electro bliss by the earful and here for the taking. Although it will be a while until this track will be published on any official release, you might enjoy this sneak preview.
This is one Ummagma track that has been totally turned on it's head, taking what was a dreampop folkrock-ish track and utterly transforming it into an whirling electro-dance track with traces of vocals from Shauna McLarnon. One slight change from the previous version. [more inside]

If you ever thought that there was no place for a little drum n' bass in the world of shoegaze and dreampop, hopefully this song will prove you wrong :) Somewhat of a feel like Stereolab, Broadcast and Lush rolled into one. [more inside]
A lovely electronic pop track, a prerelease from Good Old Neon's forthcoming album, Radiant City. [more inside]
A collaboration with non-mefite Riadsala, who sometimes records bass for me. This is a pretty strange track, with a lot of effects going on, with a weirdish tempo change into the chorus which is backed by something in the vein of guitar shredding. [more inside]
A calm and smooth falsetto song with lyrics lifted from an emergency first aid poster (with some additions turning it into a love song). Features guitar, bass, piano, and electronica-style rhythmic vocal snippets.
