Mirror Kisses – Runaways (Navigateur Remix)
Virginia’s Mirror Kisses are among the more talented producers of retrofuturistic, eighties-inspired electropop we’ve stumbled upon in 2013. Their excellent track “Runaways” just got the remix treatment from Atlanta-based Navigateur, and the result is spellbinding. Navigateur’s rework first builds up a hushed intensity that recalls New Age pioneers Jean Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream, then erupts into a smoldering cosmic R&B jam with a cathartic rolling bassline finale. Space age synths and glitchy breaks abound in this inspired reimagining of an already great track.
