Blende feat. Mickael Karkousse - Do You Remember?

Posted on 20 Apr 2018

London based Swedish producer, DJ and song writer Blende returns to Eskimo Recordings with ‘Do You Remember?’, a Moroder'esque disco/house track featuring Mickael Karkousse, frontman of Belgian electro-rock stars GOOSE. Packed full of writhing synthesiser arpeggios, a classic ostinato bass line, sci-fi strings, vocoders and topped off with Mickael's impassioned vocals, ‘Do You Remember?’ perfectly updates the seedy sound of late 70s Munich for the clubs of today.

"Most sensible people love a bit of Goose, the band that is," explains Blende. "So when my friend Mick, who coincidentally happened to be the lead singer of the very same band, spoke to me about doing something together I jumped straight on it.

After a few trips back and forth to the Safari Studios in Kortrijk, with a bit of keys hammering my end and some lyrical and vocal wizardry from Mick, we are now sitting on the final thing and couldn't be more pleased with the result. It's an updated take on the sounds from the late '70s, full of nostalgia both musically and lyrically, made strictly for those with ears."

"We had worked with Blende through his remixes for GOOSE on a couple of tracks, so when I had some time off last summer it was the right time to get in the studio with Johan to work on something completely new” recalls Mickael.

“After a couple of nights out between Bruges, Ghent and Kortrijk we came up with the right angle for the track. The result is the perfect blend between our mutual musical preferences. A Future Nostalgic sound is born perfectly fitting the title: Do You Remember?"
