New artist presents slamming synth pop debut EP with a heavyweight remix package, don’t miss this!
Electronic project Ready in LED has to be the Ukraine’s answer to Roisin Murphy. She is the multi-talented goddess Olya Dibrova, a singer and sound producer out of Kiev, with a penchant for vintage synths. The Ukranian scenester’s music is driven by neon pop, powerful synth-wave, analog bass, the romantic piano solos of Tchaikovsky, and just a little bit of Kylie.
The ‘Unreal’ EP features a wide range of disco. From NYC garage inspired ‘TMO’, to the highly sensual ‘Feel’. The main disco bangers are ‘Whatever’ and the super mega – ‘Only Tonight’, surely a Harvey future classic that’ll have you reaching for the sky and looking up at the Disco ball.
The four original cuts are treated to some killer remixes from a star-studded line up that kicks off with a monstrous banger from Gerd Janson. The Running Back boss delivers a prime- time bomb with shades of New Order throughout. Norwegian Disco don Prins Thomas, goes full on synth cascades and percussion with live bass and cowbells on his dancefloor deadly Diskomiks of ‘Only Tonight’. Music For Dreams boss man Kenneth Bager applies his beautiful Balearic touch to a more downtempo version of ‘Feel’. Lovelock tackles ‘TMO’ and goes in the direction of epic space funk, adding live drums and guitar strings. This is New York musician Steve Moore (Kompakt) in his solo synth-disco project moniker. All four originals are included for your listening pleasure. They were recorded in 2020 at the Kiev studio, Artreform Records. The mixing engineer is no less than New York’s Justin van der Volgen.
