I was stoked beyond words from the moment I caught wind of this next collaboration, which brings together illustrious Moving Castle co-founder/producer AObeats and London’s Annabel Jones, whom we’ve always loved for her glassy elegant, gracefully enchanting voice and her whimsical electropop. Strangers is the perfect conjoining of the two’s talents, a bubbly infectious, sassy capering, and melodic hooking future pop romp. It’s plucky and cheeky, tart and foxy. AObeats’ production wizardry lifts us up heart stopping crests and over vivacious precipices, all illuminated by the golden glow of Annabel Jones’ honeyed voice. Strangers can be streamed and purchased, here.

By now, I’m thoroughly convinced that enigmatic producer k?d can do no wrong. He’s continued to enthrall me endlessly, track after track, week after week, and I simply can’t resist sharing whatever he puts out. While k?d’s remix of Daft Punk’s Doin’ It Right is likely one of the most brilliant edits of the year, all his other remixes are high up on the list, too. Witness his latest edit, a magnificent remix of Annabel Jones’ glossy sleek, crisp pulsing electropop gem Happy. While the original nearly had a spacious PC Music kind of vibe going on, k?d’s remix is an eternal suffusion of vibrant whirring synths and fluxing future bass. Annabel Jones manages to infuse her song with plenty of melancholic wistfulness despite the song’s name and its honeyed veneer. She sings, “tell me something happy, don’t make me sad”. That same emotion arises on k?d’s remix, but in lieu of “telling” us something happy, k?d lifts our spirits and drives away our blues with a dynamic propellant of sonic force. k?d gives us the catalyst that pushes us over a precipice. We free fall, heart pounding in pure exhilaration. Download his remix from Toneden.

Annabel Jones’ Happy is a gorgeous enchanting, sparkling crisp pop gem, though it also carries some bittersweet currents within its bouncy electronic pop. Austin’s Tim Gunter transforms the London chanteuse’s single into a chill trap anthem on his new remix, and it amplifies the moodier side of the song. Though Tim Gunter’s downtempo re-work is sublimely soothing and deeply rousing, it also carries much emotive power. The producer said he wanted to “give this song a different feeling, something you could ride around with your windows down to”. He’s certainly succeeded in creating a meditative beauty. I cruise the imaginary highways of my mind, a twilight sky spread above as I question the mysteries of happiness and life. Tim Gunter’s remix is a free download, here.

The spunky infectious electropop of Annabel Jones’ IOU has often pervaded my mind with delight in the months since its release, leaving me fondly wondering what we’d hear next from the rising pop artist from London. Annabel tones it down an iota on just revealed new single Happy, a glistening glossy pop song whose sleek and upbeat demeanor carry much bittersweet angst despite its title. Hints of SOPHIE and Hannah Diamond seep into the crisp bouncy electronic production of the song, but the truth underneath its saccharine glow is much encapsulated in the song’s lyrics… “tell me something happy, don’t make me sad” and “don’t let the dark in”. This isn’t a simple happy song. In fact, Happy is a desperate attempt to avoid pits of despair, and that attempt is much successful for its listeners, thanks to Annabel Jones’ zippy pop. Happy comes from Annabel Jones’ debut EP, Libelle, out today on iTunes.

Lately, there’s been some sensational remixes of Annabel Jones’ IOU, but AObeats frisky and spicy edit is my new favorite. The London based Moving Castle co-founder transforms the crisp electropop original into a synth splendorous, drum clattering spectacular, its brisk bounce and future hop beats driving me to form a one person afternoon dance party here in my dining room. Annabel Jones’ vocals are as elegantly sleek as ever surrounded by AObeats’ bubbling production.

IOU is a pulsing mass of infectious electronic pop, the latest single from London’s Annabel Jones. Despite its polished crispness, there’s a fiery sultriness and spunky flourish to the song reminiscent of some of Grace Mitchell’s jittery treats of late. The rising British chanteuse recently signed to Atlanta Records / Cooked Paintings and IOU is her first single since. Deliciously jolting but dexterous and finespun, IOU is one of the catchiest electropop anthems to come along this year. IOU comes from Annabel Jones’ new EP, Libelle, coming soon.

I HEART MOOSIQ PREMIERE:

It’s been over half a year since London based electronic pop artist Annabel Jones unleashed her massively infectious and passionate anthem Magnetic, but quite honestly, I still fall head over heels in love with the song all over again every time its beautiful, crisp notes hit my ears. In a most fortunate turn of events, Magnetic has been remixed by one of my favorite acts to come out of Portland in these past months, flor, who’s also behind some of the production on LostBoyCrow’s exceptional music. Flor embellishes Annabel’s gorgeous song with a dreamy and nebulous atmosphere, constructing a more ambient sensation that’s subtly dark at choice moments, in contrast to its boundlessly incandescent serenity. It’s a ravishing, bewitching edit that’s deeply magnetic indeed. Revisit the original again, here.  .

The first time I heard of Massachusetts producer AObeats, it was via his collaborative remix of Foster the People’s Best Friend with Jai Wolf, a favorite of mine out of the slew of Best Friend remixes that suddenly flooded my inbox and feed those weeks. AObeats continues to impress me and elate my ears with his latest remix, infusing British chanteuse Annabel Jones’ Magnetic with his thrilling future bass and hip hop style. It’s enchanting but packs a weighty, rhythmic punch.
