Boomkat Product Review:
Our favourite current synthpop duo return heralding the release of the forthcoming 'Begone Dull Care' LP with a superb single with 'Hazel' replete with multi-mixes from Ewan Pearson. As a taster of things to come, the original version of 'Hazel' is very promising, finding a spark of energy after the largely laidback 'So This Is Goodbye' with a tempered ecstasy of crystal-white electrofunk riffs and increasingly evocative vocals from Jeremy Greenspan still perfecting those Prefab friendly melodic wrenches that still kill us. The majority of the record is however given up to Ewan Pearson and his multifarious remixing talents. Offering a disco version on the A-side that sounds a bit too similar to Greenspan's work with Metro Area's Morgan Geist for our liking, but coming up with a real future classic on his two house mixes. Destined to be as big as the Carl Craig version of 'Like A Child' and easily as effective 'pon the dancefloor, this is one of Pearson's finest moments, crafting a sublimely ethereal and timeless house groove revolving around a truly magical lead melody fizzing with an MDMA tactility and twice as infectious. The dub version while still useful, just doesnt carry the same impact so you'll have to learn to love those vocals if you don't already! Simply put, this is in the same league as any of their previous work and comes highly recommended to lovers of classic synth pop and dance music.
