Listen: Pompeya – 90 (Fred Falke Remix)
A native of France and French house pioneer, Falke has defined a signature sound bridging electronic and pop styles garnering acclaim through notable reworks of and remixes of mainstream acts including Katy Perry and Lana Del Rey. His remix of Pompeya’s “90” hits hard across nu-disco and funk while showcasing his skill in channeling the essence of the original into a polished remix that stands confidently on its own.
With roots firmly established in their Russian homeland including extensive touring and TV appearances, Pompeya are broadening their reach to the U.S. and beyond with their distinct blend of 70s disco, 80s New Wave, and 90s indie rock. Recently, the band’s debut album Tropical received praise across influential outlets including Under The Radar Mag, MTV Hive, Interview Mag, Earmilk, and DUMMY Mag.

The Moscow-based group has seen “Power”, “90”, and “Slaver” as the record’s first singles, each accompanied by all new music videos.

Watch the video for “Power”
Pompeya is about a month away from releasing Tropical, their first LP in America out on October 29th via No Shame. Today, the band is putting out the single for the third track on the album, “90“, and a music video for the song “Slaver“. While both tracks feature the signature Pompeya groove, they each have their own distinct flavor, showing off the consistency and versatility of the band’s songwriting abilities.
MTV Hive had this to say: “Slaver”, the first single and opening track off ‘Tropical’, is a supreme debut into the celestial world that is Pompeya. With a clear knack for arrangement, the band merges lush synths with spiraling guitars and a rhythm section bringing relentless, heavy funk.“ Click here for the full feature.
