NEWTIMERS - Falling (Sir Sampalot remix)

Written by 

Three into one does go! Producers Tim Lundblad and Andreas Cavaco are Swedes with a funky mission. After several years of writing and producing songs for numerous other acts, they’re now a signed act in their own right on Sweden’s Rec Rec Records label.

Tim + Andreas = NEWTIMERS.

As the Newtimers they recently linked up with producer/artist Sir Sampalot (better known to many as Rikard "Skizz" Bizzi - one-half of the now defunct production duo UP HYGH) to make an awesome remix of their Prince-tinged single "Falling", and what does it sound like?

Like the best of the 80s with a touch of modern electro soul. The drums are hard but warm sounding, compressed but still loose. And the vocals - wow!

Andreas’ ecstatic and passionate tones are delivered with a comedic awareness that deliberately drips  with sultry lyrics about Sex. The deep old school sounds and the melodic richness take me to a great space musically speaking. Looking forward to hearing future collaborations between these three respected artists.

This single gets a full 10 out of 10.

  • Tomi Malm - Walkin’ On Air

    When you have spent the last twenty years building a solid reputation as a composer, arranger, orchestrator, and producer on a multitude of successful records, TV themes and multimedia scores, there is only one logical thing to do next. Release your own debut solo album.

    And that is exactly what Walkin’ On Air is, a chance for the Finnish creator Tomi Malm to work without any brief, restrictions or considerations and the result is a glorious collection of songs that range from elegant jazz-infused pop grooves, smokey funk boogies, emotive and soaring ballads and a host of creative genre fusions.

  • Sahra da Silva – Oh, Love!

    If Sahra da Silva was releasing her music between 1960 – 1980 she would already be a star, and that I'm sure of. That's not to say it's out of date, but instead, the cool bars with a haze of smoke which Sahra would have packed don't exist anymore, and today's record labels simply look for image ready kids to pump out to an adoring public.
