Laugh Cry Live Die

Posted in electronic music, new music, tronic youth on June 9, 2008 by planetmondo

Occaisonally you may notice my brother’s name Tronik Youth popping up in the Mondo cyberspace scrapbook – well, as if he’s not busy enough with gigging all over the globe and reworking and remixing tunes like this for The Gossip, The Rakes, and New Young Pony Club – the ol’ clever clogs has also found time to clonk out his own shiny new single, ‘Laugh Cry Live Die’ it’s out now (and available on iTunes from this week)- so why not try before you buy below…

Then perhaps check his MySpace site for mixes,live dates and details of a new piece of electrickery he’s working on with Midfield General.

Also watch out for out for more Tronik related treats over on Roman Empress soon..

Following on from RE’s tip off – here is Yoav ‘Beautiful Lie’ (Tronik Youth Mix)

Randomizer number 1 – A Track Could Get Lost

Posted in 80's, ipod, Mp3, music, Randomizer, Soft Cell, tronic youth on August 15, 2007 by planetmondo


Following on from the random ramble in my last post, (which was prompted by the track below suddenly being dusted off, cued up and cranked by my Creative Zen player while in shuffle mode) I’ve decided that every time an unexpected winner, a long lost favourite or previously unheard nugget shuffles it’s way into play on my mp3 player. I’m going to log it in the blog.

The first one up is

Soft Cell – A Man Could Get Lost (Instrumental version)

I hadn’t heard this track for at least 20 years, had completely forgotten about it , and didn’t even know it was 1 of the 10,000 tracks on my player until shuffle threw this non stop nugget into the spotlight yesterday

What a winner!! It’s packed full of fat analogue 80’s synths and drums, fizzing, whizzing and clapping away, there’s thumping riffs and glossy pop hooks, wrapped in a shadowy, sleazy darkness that Soft Cell did so well. But, the most amazing thing is how clubby and contemporary it sounds. I can’t believe it’s over 25 years old, it’s got such a trendy sparkle that it could be a Tronik Youth
or Mylo remix

How come bootleg remixers, and TV advertisers have let this elctro cracker of track slip through the net

If you’ve got A Man Could Get Lost somewhere spin it up today, if you haven’t treat yourself and download it.

A Man Could Get Lost is available on Non Stop Ecstatic Dancing here

And there’s great feature on the recording of Non Stop Ecstatic Dancing by Mike Thorne here
