Metroland by Metroland by OMD

Metroland is a synth-pop band from Belgium making music, heavily inspired by bands like Kraftwerk, Komputer, OMD, Orbital, Marsheaux and many others. Their 2012 debut album “Mind The Gap” (GAP001) was hailed worldwide due to its original vintage electronic sound, mixed with up tempo sequences and paced bass sounds. Metroland came in touch with OMD singer Andy McCluskey in April 2012 when he fell in love with the Düsseldorfer influences from Metroland. The chance a band like OMD making a song about Metroland, coincidentally the name of the Belgian band, simply had to result in a mix-treatment by Metroland in their very particular style. Yet, with very much respect for the original OMD version.

This Metroland video, which is an unofficial OMD video, accompanies the full length version of the remix represents a journey through the typical 19th century English landscape around greater London up until London as we know it today. The viewer can discover numerous historical artefacts linked to the original Metro-land incorporating the OMD artwork for their latest album “English Electric. All of this is gently dipped in a sauce of psychedelic and joyful moving images, mingled with synthetic vintage electronics.

We both hate those darn f*cked up club mixes where you can barely recognize something of the original. We started all from scratch. So, every sequence and bass line, melody was played a-new (we did not have a MIDI file), and we searched for new sounds. In the end, it became a more orchestral mix spiced up with the typical bass sounds from METROLAND, along with our famous layered sequences.”
