Man, Pompeya has been commissioning some absolutely spot-on remixes for the singles from their debut LP, Tropical. After Fred Falke knocked “90” out of the park and Jimmy Edgar took “Power” to a whole new level, the Russian quartet has roped in GDD™ favorites, Psychemagik, for a remix of “Slaver” that has me feelin’ some type of way. Fwonky (funky & wonky) basslines and lead synths steal the show, with breezy vocals providing a nice complement to the 7-minute groove. Very excited to hear the full Tropical Remix LP later this month. √+
On December 10th, Russian pop/funk outfit Pompeya will be releasing their Tropical Remix Compilation via Brooklyn label No Shame. And who better to recruit for the first track off the remix compilation than one of electronic music’s most prolific & revered remixers, Fred Falke. The pairing of Pompeya and Fred Falke on the remix of the song “90” is a assemblage of diversity, with Pompeya’s vibrant harmonies, melodic synth lines & punchy guitar riffs melting together beautifully & seamlessly with Fred Falke’s signature, polished sound.
The remix compilation follows the October 29th release of Pompeya’s debut album Tropical via No Shame. Purchase the Tropical album on vinyl [HERE] & receive the Tropical Remix Compilation for free!

Pompeya, probably our favorite thing coming out of Russia since vodka, just released quite the single entitled “Power.” The single is jaw-dropping, and the collection of artists jumping onto remix duty is phenomenal, including the likes of: Mario Basanov, Lou Teti, Zimmer, & Lipelis. If thats not enough for you, there is a very limited run of 12” vinyls on Lou’s label, Tigers on a Leash, with hand-silkscreened art that can be bought HERE! Don’t sleep on this, you have the POWER!
