Pnau – Unite Us (Kris Menace Remix)
Taken from their forthcoming album ‘Soft Universe’, set for release early next year, this supercharged anthem stands as the perfect introduction to the big, ambitious and elevating sound that has come to characterize PNAU. ‘Unite Us’ is a supremely effervescent track. It surges with colour and positive energy, bearing allusion to the musical output of Littlemore’s highly acclaimed side project Empire of the Sun. His impressive role as composer for the Cirque du Soleil in Paris (he is the youngest musician ever to have filled the position) can also be felt in the track’s expansive sound. This is a true performance piece in pop disguise. Energetic vocals relay the anthemic lyric ‘Unite Us, baby I can feel a change, don’t we all feel the same?’ upon a euphoric arrangement of plush synths riffs, pulsating rhythmic passages and bass lines, all of which indicate PNAU’s intent to bring their listeners uplifting music that defies club interiors.
The single is backed with six eclectic remixes from Kris Menace, Tommy Trash, Wideboys, Douster and Savage Skulls, Raffertie and Wookie. Whilst each of these stand alone as uniquely engaging, together they sweep the spectrum of electronic sub genre, cementing ‘Unite Us’ as one of next year’s key early dance floor fillers!
Unite Us is scheduled for release on 5th February 2012 on Ministry of Sound Recordings.
