Footprintz are on a rich run of form right now, showing a craftsmanship in their songs that is so often lacking in modern day dance music. New single ‘Favourite Game’ is set to further buck this trend when it drops on December 3rd (general release).
Montreal’s soon to be favourite sons, Clarian North and Addy Weitzman, meet at an after hours party at the age of 15 and haven’t looked back since. Their noir tinged synth pop has taken them around the world and back, and with a debut album in the pipeline (also on Visionquest) they look set to see it all again.
‘Favourite Game’ is the second single from the album, a new romantic jaunt with its foundations laid out by a beautifully hypnotic bass line right from the off. Percussive flares, delicately arranged chords and that distinctive Footprintz vocal delivery all weave in and out, resulting in a multi-faceted slice of psychedelic pop perfection that’s sleazy in all the right ways, in all the right places.
Never one to shy away from a few top draw remixes, Visionquest drafted in Ivan Smagghe to put his own sonic spin on proceedings. His ‘On A Thin Line’ rework takes the original to a darker place, complete with distorted vocals and alarm noises for good measure. Visionquest’s own Ryan Crosson & Lee Curtis take the original into more club friendly territory, delivering a driving house rework sure to do some damage on dance floors worldwide.
‘Favourite Game’ is out a limited run of 12” on November 5th, followed by a Beatport release on November 19th and general release on December 3rd.
