All There Is Electro, Synthpop Titans Christmas came early this year, well, to be more precise, on midnight on the night to Christmas Eve, so it was not that early, but heck of a lot more on time than the Swedish trains nowadays. The only thing I have heard of Titans before this where their remixes of different artists, so I was quite surprised to see that they are so talented on their own as well. I gave Progress Productions a smack around the genitals for calling their three track Dupont release an EP, and now they do it again with this release. Stop it; it is a god damn single! CDS is still sexy, remember that folks. I would like to describe Titans as a bit harder (musically) Seabound, Edge of Dawn or NamNamBulu. So if you are keen on those bands, you are surely in for something nice and you surely need to pic up this release. On this three track SINGLE, we get an original version, one remix by Biomekkanik and one by [de:ad:cibel]. The original version is, like almost always, the best one. The American singer Dan's voice works perfectly with the Swedes Fredrik and Jimmy's musical parts. Slower dance beats together with an emotional and strong voice, all in a perfect blend. The Biomekkanik remix is a bit more upbeat, and sometimes that works to its disadvantage. I get the feeling that it gets a bit forced, simply to have it more upbeat. A visualisation of the squeezing in the vocals to the music would be like to see a really overweight person trying to fit in to a seat on an airplane. Sure, probably can get the person in there with some lube, but it isn't all that sexy. Therefore I am more happy with the [de:ad:cibel] remix, still feels more upbeat and got another pace to it, but without the squealing and squeezing of flesh. Some quite interesting sounds here and there, which gives this version some re-listening opportunities. Progress Production has really found a hidden gem with Titans and I'm curious to see if they can live up to the task in a full-length album. I'm looking forward to this debut release during 2011. 450
