Random 30 2013: Gemini - Robots (Chrome Sparks Remix)

Gemini, aka Thomas Slinger, hails from Leicester, UK, and while he’s probably best known for his remix work on tracks by the chart-busting likes of Lana Del Rey, Emeli Sande, and Ed Sheeran, he’s also released a handful of singles and EPs on his own account. Apparently we can expect a full-length album sometime in 2014, if not before.

The original mix of ‘Robots’ turned up on his Mercury EP back in November of 2012, but the version which made me sit up and take note was the excellent Chrome Sparks Remix featured here. Gemini’s music blends elements of house, electronica, and dubstep, but this synth rich mix of ‘Robots’ almost crosses over into some kind of plush variation on nu disco ... I’ve listened to this a lot during the year and its seemingly effortless groove still grabs me each and every time.
