Having produced some of the most celebrated and recognizable dance music over the last decade, and provided the soundtrack to adverts by a host of the world's coolest brands, Manchester's Mint Royale are back with the release of the stunning new 'GTFU' EP out 6th May on Warners.
The title track is a gripping intro to proceedings; synth attacks and an array of glittering electronic melodies perfectly combine with cleverly layered hooks, reminding you exactly why Mint Royale have been able to stick around for so long in an ever-changing musical landscape.
Knowing a thing or two about remixes having achieved a UK number 1 with 'Singin' in the Rain', Mint Royale's decision to bring in man of the moment, Bobby Tank, on remix duties has proved an astute one. The result is a sonic blend of electronic instrumentation tied together with the stellar production of the pounding percussion, confirming Bobby Tank's talents as one of the UK's hottest producers, whilst paying respect to Mint Royale.
'Bone' picks up where 'GTFU' left off, as huge electro hooks and thunderous bass lines take charge whilst 'Whip', a dreamy atmospheric synth laden track, offers an experimental edge to the 'GTFU' EP, which drops ahead of a fresh album in the latter half of 2013.
Mint Royale's latest offering is a reminder of why they have earned such a glowing list of admirers; but consider 'GTFU' as the perfect introduction to the brand-new Mint Royale sound.
