Unity One - Infrared
Futurepop Synthematik continues to deliver high standard releases and this CD single is no exception. We know Unity One from the first track of the Synthematika Three compilation and on that release their track was "Infrared" in a "SNTK3 Version".

You might feel a bit worried that the same track that appeared on the compilation now appears as a single, like the band has nothing else to show for it, part from one great track, however, all those worries will be crushed as easily as the rape/pregnancy theories of Mitt Romney.

Let's start out with the B-side, since that naturally became a topic of my former statement. The B-side is called "Join The Light" and is a pretty poppy tune. A simple but efficient synthpop melody with the company of a harder futurepop beat. If such a good track is used as a B-side, I really look forward to their debut album.

The title track "Infrared" comes in three new different version. The classic "Single Version", a "Dance Version" and a remix by the instrumental mastermind of Mental Discipline".

The single version is one of my favourite tracks from the Synthematika Three compilation. A perfect futurepop track that easily fits in your library with Colony 5 and VNV Nation. Even though it's a pretty slowish track, the perfect chorus will create many goose bumps and jumps of joy on the dance floor.

In the "Dance Version" it almost gets a techno sound to it and the perfect melody used in the original one is vanished, all and all, it ends up being quite boring. Mental Discipline has added some tiny sampled guitar riffs and remade the chorus melody a bit. All and all a great remix, but it's hard to beat the original.

I only have one statement to sign off this review with: GIVE ME THE ALBUM, NOW!
