Sifting through the past to craft the future.
It's a common enough practise in electronic music, an arena where an overloaded circuit can cause the birth of Acid House.
Punks Jump Up continually ransack synth-pop sounds from the 80s, re-interpreting to fit the modern dancefloor in continually surprising new shapes.
The duo's latest track is available as a free download. 'Fairlight' is all fluorescent synths and crisp percussion, reminiscent of Depeche Mode's classic run of 12 inch singles buy given a French electro twist.
Available below, Clash is also able to premiere the video for 'Fairlight'. Animated by Neal Coghlan, StudioAszyk.com the clip focusses on those retro-Futurist vibes by using early 90s style computer generated imagery.
Perfectly matching the buoyant disco-house of Punks Jump Up, you can watch it below then grab the track after the jump.
