Track Of The Day: Gus Gus – Crossfade

gusgus The first official single from Icelandic electronic crew Gus Gus’ upcoming new album is one tripped out affair. As the first example of what’s to come on the full-length Mexico on Monday 23 June, Crossfade is a mesmerising combination of moody synths, throbbing percussion and airy vocals that occasionally come extremely close in resemblance to the singing style of the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence.

In a nutshell it’s a track that fans of techno, or at least dance-pop, should get on to and which sounds like a leftover song from Gus Gus’ excellent 2011 album Arabian Horse.

There’s plenty of ‘80s and ‘90s influences mixed with UK garage and even a little bit of trance, and, just as a sidenote, the remix featuring contributions from Maceo Plex and Michael Mayer are also well worth checking out.
