LEMAITRE - SINGLE REVIEW

Lemaitre - 1749 EP (Virgin EMI) 
Lemaitre - Stepping Stone

Release Date: Out Now

Ulrik and Ketil make their music and, presumably, do their loving in Oslo - one of the only places on earth that is the anagram of a Star wars surname. The band have a new tune by the name of 'Stepping Stone' featuring the talents of Mark Johns and, if you're feeling like being good to yourself, then listen up and listen good. I mean seriously, this is an absolute beast.  A Goose-esque dirty synth bass throb gets things going like the thrum of a distant band of Hell's Angels getting closer and closer and closer. Throw in some sultry vocals and the kind of beats vs melody combo that makes you want to drive through a neon lit city in an open top car with this tune pumping out just so you can soak up the adoration from passersby. This is sexy, classy, dirty, slick and edgy - pretty much everything I want in a dance tune with an extra sprinkling of cool that you rarely outside of the likes of Daft Punk or Transformer. Superb stuff and a band I will be paying far more attention to in 2016, don't make me fly solo.
