SMITH AND THELL - "SUPER DJ"
Mary Jane Smith and Victor Alexander Thell are back with yet another seamless piece of contemporary scandi-pop in the form of new single "Super DJ". The Swedish duo once again manage to produce a diligent array of slender beats, thumping dance tendencies and sublime pop hooks. With such finely sculpted pieces of mature pop like "Kill It With Love" already nestled in the growing back catalogue the masterful duo are ramping up the pressure to produce hit after hit and their latest sizzler doesn't disappoint.
Possessing a heady synthesised landscape "Super DJ" takes you on an intriguing ride of cosmic beats and sultry rhythms; Smith's modern and computerised vocals dehumanise the track and force it to become robotic, efficient and above all compliant, as musical elements collide into a neon hue strobe of unrelenting Swedish pop that is both brutally icy and ultra cool. This latest offering is very reminiscent of Hyper Crush's work, albeit toned down, understated and more effortless when it comes to eventual delivery. Smith and Thell have the right formulaic compositions to ensure their unique brand of pop continues to win over listeners and challenge mediocrity.
