REVIEW: Cubicolor - Fictionalise (Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas Remix) out on Anjunadeep

Following the release of their acclaimed debut LP ‘Brainsugar’, Cubicolor return with a remix of ‘Fictionalise’ from iconic Norwegian duo Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas.

The pioneering pair have achieved notoriety over the past 13 years since first working together, with a remarkable back catalogue of influential work including much-loved solo albums, a collaborative LP, and joint remixes for the likes of The Chemical Brothers and Roxy Music. The duo join forces again for the first time since 2012 on a melancholic, disco-tinged remix, following a fruitful few years of solo releases which have been acclaimed by the likes of Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, BBC6Music and NPR.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Anjunadeep has offered us until now excellent reinterpretations of their releases from fantastic talents. The latest starlight remix comes from Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas who combine their forces for the stunning remix on Fictionalise by Cubicolor. We are treated first class with over 9 minutes dreamy electronica sounds with superb hypnotic rhythm, great drum programming and hi-nrg disco style synths along with nice melodramatic strings to add the cinematic dimension. Deep smooth eclectic house beats that slowly evolving into a music odyssey that is pleasurable and inspirational with the incredible vocals and the deep meaningful lyrics. The result is spaced out and cosmic to say the least and is definitely one of this very special records that can be consumed for 9 minutes without nobody complain or get bored from it! #PureGold Love it[/content]
