(Updated March 2018)
Bristol-based ‘electronic pick n mix outfit’, This Human Condition are ‘Living for the Summertime’ with their Neo-Synth-Dance-Pop mélange, latest release. Cloud light, floating synth pads are contrasted and driven well by flanged up Linndrum style beat, evocative of iconic 80s tracks, like Prince’s mini-epic, ‘When Doves Cry’.
This Modern Electronic Punk track wonderfully blends Modern Punk surreal melodies with Classic Electronic instrumentation that feature a funky bassline, progressive synth chords, and magnetic electric drums. This fusion keeps the power surged without any monotony settling into the track. Jamie Jamal leads the track vocally strong with a nice forgiving effect that allows his voice to ebb while Mister-Minchie supports the track’s fancy-free effect with his artfully backing vocals.

The Transcentury EP (released 16/3/18)
Taken from the forthcoming EP "Normal People Are Crazy"
Released: August 10th, 2018.
This Human Condition is back with ‘Normal’ an electronic Calypso (Calypso-tronica) inspired track that makes you smile from start to finish, the message being it’s ok not to be normal. With it's infectious brass and soothing carefree vibe it makes you think of sunshine and tropical beaches. If you could capture sunshine into a song then Normal has it by the bucket load, almost like they have captured electronic sunshine in a shot of Rum. Taken from the forthcoming EP 'Normal People Are Crazy' paired with 'Night Is Gone' is tropical house track with a moombahton feel, and ‘SexPulse’ a soulful trap tune that has a feeling of vulnerability and fragility.
"When you hear the chorus you can't help but to dance'
Review from Mix 247 EDM
This Human Condition is back with a new EP called Transcentury.
The result is 4 electronic tracks inspired by flamboyant characters. Transcentury is a made up word by the band, meaning people who are not afraid to be different and stand out from the crowd. The title track invites you into their world and lists the people and the albums they are inspired by and has a dance & experimental feel. Disco bunny is a positive upbeat futuristic disco-inspired track about a street performer called Pablo who dresses up as 'The Disco Bunny’. Sapphire is atmospheric synth about a man on the streets of Bristol (UK) who dresses in women's clothing and looks like a carnival queen.
Anthemic “Pride In All Of US’ is about LGSM activist Mark Ashton (Pride Movie) and is documentary in style.
An interview with This Human Condition
Mister Minchie and Jamie Jamal talking music.
Meeting Michael Eavis.
Jamie and his Mum met Michael Eavis on 12/6/18 in Bath. Mister-Minchie was there but too shy for a photo with the Legend. They presented Michael with a copy of their new single and told him it was about the excitement of going to his festival. Michael asked Jamie if he went to the festival in 2017? Jamie replied Yes I did, I also performed on the Mini Pyramid at Williams Green with my band. "Oh did you how marvellous", he said.
Quote from Michael Eavis
"I'm Thrilled you have taken the trouble of writing a song about my festival"
