Sin Cos Tan – Destroyer – My Favorite Robot Records

March 12, 2014

My Favorite Robot turn once again to Sin Cos Tan for the next single and deliver a remix of their own, as well as one from Aiden Lavelle, to complete the package.

Last summer My Favorite Robot Records further cemented their relationship with Jori Hulkkonen (and Sin Cos Tan partner Juho Paalosmaa ) with the release of an exclusive remix package of tracks from the debut Sin Cos Tan album. Now they strengthen the bonds once again with a single based around one of the cuts from the duo’s latest album ‘Afterlife’.

‘Destroyer’ is a doleful slice of emotive house come pop with taut, sinewy chords and insular and introspective vocals delivered in a breathy tone. It’s the sort of nagging tune that never leaves your brain with clean, crisp synth work that makes for a truly absorbing track.

The label bosses themselves turn in the first remix and layer it up with plenty more rubbery kick drums so it drives on the dancefloor that bit more purposefully.  The synths are less smooth and more ragged around the edges making for a darker, more dystopian vibe, but the original lyrics remain intact.  Aidan Lavelle, a producer of increasing repute on labels like Crosstown Rebels, then reimagines the track as a kinetic bit of tech funk that is run through with plenty of synthy turbulence.

Yet another seriously synth driven package from My Favorite Robot Records that confirms them as one of the artiest electronic labels out there.
