Black Ferrari - Neggy Gemmy

Article photo - Hot Electronic - March 2023 Edition

Over the past few years, I have been traveling back to the 90s/early 2000s; both in style,  TV-show choices and overall musical taste. The day I came across Neggy Gemmy’s Daydream was, in truth, euphoric, and teleported me back to a very specific time and vibe.

Every single Neggy Gemmy release is a neon milkshake of DIY 90s/2000s extravaganza; each song is more addictive than the last. This newest release Black Ferrari is no exception; the bassline and sampled vocals entrancing you immediately, the chorus featuring a sublime mix of her signature smooth vocal sampling, fused with electronics, the results being thoroughly hypnotic. This is fun, nostalgic, and expertly put together. Check out the music video here.

Street Violence - Tom Rasmussen, Michèle Lamy

A breeze of lush electronics wash over you; coaxing you into the mesmerizing world of this song. House hi-hats enter, alongside beautifully layered electronic vocals that have a slightly disco feel; whilst a wall of sound is subtly rising and rising behind the vocals. The chorus is earth shattering, raw, electronic glory. The second half of the song has gorgeous house style chords, overlaid with divine, soaring vocals. A powerhouse of a song; which is taken from the upcoming album Body Building (which you can pre order here), which is dedicated to queer and trans people everywhere, and speaks to the artist’s experience as a queer femme person.

The newest release from Vitesse X is otherworldly and uneasy; lulling you into another dimension with its eerie synthesis. A beat comes in, over which haunting vocals are sampled before the heavenly main vocals flow in over the drone bass. This is thoroughly hypnotizing and will draw you into a shimmering sea of electronics.

Earth shattering drums come in, sprinkled with vocal samples, ambient sound fx, with a sub bass looming in the background, all hinting at something on the horizon. This has an underground 90s club vibe; and has the nostalgic and surreal quality present in a lot of 90s classic electronic music. The chorus is divine,  a wall of pads coming in, entrancing you into its velvet subterranean underworld.
