Point Blank Recordings veer towards the dance floor for their second release with this summery slice of electro-pop by New York-based artist Ann Streichman. On remix duty, we’ve enlisted house royalty in DJ Sneak, a soulful house veteran in Terry Grant and former Point Blank's student Kells.
Ann Streichman is a multi-faceted artist from New York City. Her works spans a variety of disciplines and media, be it DJ sets (including before a speech given by Barak Obama at the Streicker centre earlier this year), sound design for tv ads, films and fashion campaigns (Tranwreck, Vicarious, Rinat Brodach), expletive-ridden conceptual pop (Munch) or her own productions - marrying her pop sensibility with a punk attitude and a penchant for the bizarre.
Of the remixes, Terry Grant delivers a rounded, poised club track, perfect for those outdoor terrace or boat parties anywhere from here to the Adriatic and the original track delves into the day-glo vibe of 80s new wave: all loose chords and a bouncy, sultry energy. Chicago legend DJ Sneak turns in a jacking house bomb in the way that only he can, while Kells is back once again with a deeper, more emotive cut, wrapping mournful keys around a trademark skittish garage beat (featured on XLR8R).
