Hey everyone, hope you're enjoying your Thursday. I was recently introduced to a new artist called AIMES. AIMES has got a nice fresh approach to synth pop-- his vocals nicely straddle modern and the soft spoken 80s. Combine that with a funky beat and some nice analog synths, and you've got yourself catchy dance music.
'Every Time When I See You' is AIMES' new single. The hook in this track has got a ton of detune-- I've never heard it used in this way. Note how the hook seems to bend up-- some nice work programming, Mr. AIMES. I also love the slight chip tune-y pads in the background. Not overpowering in anyway, it adds a nice touch to the track. A perfect song for the summer.
Up for free download is the B-Side, 'Is A Good Friend?'. Be sure to grab it below. This track features, again, great programming and some interesting vocal samples. Reminds me of a soundtrack to a dream. It's nice to hear an American guy adding to the dance/french house/synth scene. I'm already excited to check out his record coming out August 2nd, entitled Your Floor Is Now a Tree.
