All about the synths

Buro 24/7 Singapore Weekly Playlist #34
Douglas Khee, Creative Director of Division Communications and show producer behind luxury brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton as well as some of the coolest parties in town shares his runway music picks for this fashion season

I've been listening to a lot of old originals and new remixes of electronic music, especially French and German sounds: The computerised vocals, repetitive rhythms and catchy melodies all created with keyboards, percussions and synthesizers. I see the songs I've picked as soundtracks to the coming shows at Milan and Paris Fashion Week.

I'm currently loving Felix Da Housecat's Silver Screen and Moderat's A New Error. Happy Mondays' 24 Hour Party People is reminiscent of the start of rave culture in Manchester. I've also been getting back into drum and bass-influenced beats like Art Of Noise's Moments In Love and Bang That by Disclosure. I still can't get enough of New Order. Their track, Your Silent Face, is synth-heavy and hits me with a wave of nostalgia for those classic cheesy '80s TV series intros. New wave-meets-pop hit Hot by Le Tigre is another favourite at the moment.
