Vinyl release all mixes 24th Feb 2017

Having already picked up some plays on BBC 6Music, Lisbon Kid album favourite "We Look At The Stars" is now due a full release on legendary UK label Wall of Sound. Featuring the vocal talents of St. Etienne's Sarah Cracknell, "We Look At The Stars" is a dreamy slice of electronic pop, marinated in Balearic sunsets. 

Remixes that grace the release come from legendary dj/producer Howie B, Warriors of the Discotheque, Spatial Awareness, and also a rework from Lisbon Kid themselves.

When Lisbon Kid decided it was time to start recording an album, in the sunshine of Azeitão in Portugal, they found the resultant songs explored many common emotional and narrative threads. The album became a subtle blend of electronica and acoustic instruments, with elements of sound design, added to a huge song-based pop sensibility and emotional lyrical content. A consummate debut record, as diverse as it is adventurous. The melodic songwriting craft employed gives it it’s unique personality and becomes so obviously radio and synch-friendly. Invited guest vocalists include indie stars Sarah Cracknell, Hafdis Huld, Lisa Billson and Queen of Hearts. 

With the album ready, they embarked on creating visuals for each song and have subsequently also completed an audio-visual long-player due to be released Feb 2017. 

Singles taken from of the album have already appeared on such notable compilations as Cafe Del Mar, Balearic and Golden Lounge. 

Lisbon Kid are currently touring the album in a hybrid Live-A/V DJ Set that has seen them playing shows in London, Ibiza, Cannes, and Lisbon. Following the successful reception of the LP, the duo recently both opened and closed the Ibiza summer season from the IMS Music Conference to their packed DJ Sunset Sessions at such legendary venues as Cafe Mambo, Es Vive, Cafe Del Mar, Pikes and Hostal La Torre.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The classy record label Wall Of Sound presents the stunning new release by Lisbon Kid featuring the beloved Sarah Cracknell called We Look At The Stars. The extended package includes 5 versions to choose from and mesmerise your unsuspected crowds. Original mix is a brilliant blissful chill out track with laid back groove, relaxing melodies, luscious atmosphere and cinematic sound design while Sarah's voice is sweet and mesmerising and sounds so perfect within the final sunkissed afterclubbing essential result. Howie B remix moves on  the dub electronica style with funky bassline and laid back groove while the breakdown allows only the voice and natural sound effects to create the visual image in your mind. Hypnotic, warm and tender version that captures your mind and body so its perfect to swing along or just enjoy in your bed while you count stars. Warriors Of The Dystotheque Remix is excellent driving tripping out electronica style version with rock guitar riffs, magical synths, xylophone melodies and warm strings. The vocal is kept in the background sounding so spacey and out of this world. Spatial Awareness Remix is a perfect deep tech house version that is darker, moodier with acid overtones and even old school rave elements that turn the final result into an early 90's acid house burner. Lisbon Kid rework starts with melancholic piano chords deep driving bassline along with minimal groove and cinematic dreamy strings. It is fantastic version to play in any deep house set and create the perfect atmosphere for a night to remember dancing and looking at the stars. #PureClass #PureGold Love It  [/content]
