Boomkat Product Review:
Julia Holter, Elusive, Cole M.G.N. and Hardland line-up the first remixes spawned from Nite Jewel’s 3rd album, Liquid Cool.
LA’s Alpha Pup proprietor, Elusive resets album highlight Was That A Sign amid a scene of shimmering sleignbells and heady, up drafting synths - warm and over-easy; sorta what we imagine xmas in LA to be like - whilst Nite Jewel band-member Cole M.G.N. reworks the dance-pop bullet Boo Hoo with helium vox and tautly realigned halfstep electro momentum.
Reworking Kiss The Screen, The Samps’ Hardland heads in the other direction with a maximalist, emotive version swelling with a prog-pop chuff on, making the contrast with Julia Holter’s gorgeous, Julee Cruise-like take on Running Out of Time seem even starker by comparison.
