Guestlist | Playlist: Modri's synth-pop selections
Friday 9th July 2021 | Arren
We’ve got a cracking selection of synth-pop for our latest playlist, courtesy of Modri!
It’s a synth heavy week as we hand the reins of our latest Spotify selections to recent Skint signee Modri. The Nottingham artist recently released an absolute banger with them, 'It Takes Time'. An uplifting beat, funky beat featuring the fantastic vocals of Crazy P’s Danielle Moore. It’s a cracking debut release from Modri. He’s cut his teeth in club culture over the years, being one half of April Towers. Now he turns his attention to his own craft, creating captivating dance-centred synth-pop tracks.
His debut is a perfect starting point with emotive vocals with an 80s/Hacienda styled beat wrapped together by brilliantly fun synths forming the perfect track for those lucid moments in the party. There’s still a lot more to come from this promising project, but in the meanwhile Modri has taken over our playlist. He’s packed it with all the synths you’d ever need.
Speaking on his selections Modri says: "This playlist throws together some of the songs that really resonated with me as a kid, through to more recent music that inspired 'It Takes Time'. I’m a huge '80s fan, mainly due to the fact my mum used to play lots of synth-pop records when I was growing up, so I think that’s where my love of the genre stems from! A huge part of producing music is lifting ideas and sounds from particular tracks, like a sort of audible mood board. This selection of tracks represents the diverse range of synth-pop that has helped craft my sound over the years (and even more recently in some cases). Each tune has its own standout vocal melody, which really hooked me in at the first time of listening and is perfectly complimented by detailed and innovative synth programming."
