- B2. Motif (Actress Remix)
R&S are proud to announce the debut single from new signings Teengirl Fantasy.With the superb ‘7AM’ released in 2010, and the un-escapable ‘Cheaters’ anthem from that album still lighting up dancefloors, it’s now time for TGF to step up with album number two, but before that non album track ‘Motif ’ is bold statement of intent.
Teengirl Fantasy are Logan Takahashi and Nick Weiss, two young guys based in New York who have come up through the same scene that brought us Blondes and Laurel Halo. Influenced by classic house and techno and with the spirit of DIY punk, their music comes from the hands on approach of manipulating old analogue machines, rather than pushing blocks around a computer screen.
Motif sees the duo expand on their dreamy techno blueprints with another hypnotic, uptempo emission with the signature TGF flair, it then makes an about turn at the halfway point as it drops into an almost Balearic piano tune.
Eternal is included as a taster of the album. It's custom built for the bands summer festival appearances, it teases, twists and builds into an epic cacophony of synths competing for attention that betray their love for diy/noise scene that they grew out of.
On remix duties steps up Actress, who has just released his amazing 'RIP' album, as soon as you put the needle on the record you know it couldn't be from anyone else. He's supplied a deep and heavy groove that is deceptively simple, yet sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.
