Common Synths #1

As you may have already deduced, there is a particular sound that twiddles my knobs and presses the right buttons.  Yes, the common synth.  So here’s three songs to get you started.  Listen to those lovely rainbow noises.

Firstly, here’s a balls to the wall remix of the Ting Tings’ latest offering that uses most of the sound spectrum and manages to nudge the timing of the original song along a tad.  A tactic that I normally hate in remixes, but works a treat here.

Ting Tings – Hands (Glasnost Remix)

Next is a great take on a great song, replete with Van Halen stabby synths to give it that solid 80’s sound.  Anything remixed by Grum tends to get the thumbs up.

The Wombats – Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves) (Grum Remix)

Lastly, I have recently been been turned on to French producer Madeon.  Here is his quite brilliant mashup of 23 different songs which comes with a nifty video to boot.

And he’s only 17.

The little shit.
