Braxe/Falcon/Lifelike and gorillas

gorilla-h.jpg

This past saturday, thanks to a bunch of gorillas securing the entrance of some club (they’re also called bouncers sometimes), I wasn’t able to listen to this dream team playing their sets. Thank you The Social Club. It must have been great, I will never know.

I’ve heard it was really too crowded anyway…

Alan Braxe & Fred Falke – Horizon (2003)
DJ Falcon – Untitled (1999)
Lifelike – Obsessions (2002)

If you’ve been there, tell me how it was like…

Gwen McCrae – All This Love That I’m Giving

Gwen Mc Crae is an american singer inspired as much by gospel, R’n’B, soul as funk and also by her husband.
It appears on her 3rd album “Melody Of Life” in 1979.

It’s been later sampled by the frech duo Cassius. (more…)

High On

03ek0.jpg

Lifelike‘s album is not yet in sight… 2007 happened to be a very busy year for him as an in-demand remixer, now that it’s a bit more quiet let’s hope he’s on it.

Lifelike – High On 2007 (2007)

This is a slightly edited version of the incredible Adventure mini-EP B side.

Defender

800px-raybanwayfarer.jpg

The Defender single is the latest collaboration known to date between Alan Braxe and Fred Falke on Vulture Music.

Bliss is a fairly enjoyable piece of lazy Disco while Defender is more like a ‘sub-Robot Rock‘ with a housey beat… There’s a track for everyone’s taste: I like the first one.

Defender – Bliss (2005)

Defender included the enigmatic Savage as well, who then works exclusively with Falke.

C’est La Vie

image-3.jpg

Yet another off topic ticket but I really couldn’t resist. Though I’m no fan of Martin Solveig, this remix is THE sh%t!

Anthemic French House with maximum distortion. I love those f%cking beets!

Martin Solveig – C’est la vie (The Bloody Beetroots Remix) (2008)

Thanks to Kidz By Colette for sharing this exclusive track. Soon to be released on the next Solveig’s album.

Knightlife

midevil-knight-deluxe-plus.JPG

Seriously, he is one of the very few to have brought out a perfect blend of synthpop, french house and ‘distortion-knob’ electro; and yes: Knightlife is as good as it gets.

He is also quite new on the scene and surely someone to eagerly watch out for in the future. I discovered his work out of sheer luck and now I must admit I’m totally hooked on his sound.

Bag Raiders – Nil By Mouth (Knightlife Remix) (2007)

Knightlife – All Systems (2007)

Another Life

travolta-saturday-night_std.jpg One of the most incredible smash hits from the über brilliant Disco-act Kano (no, not that Grime poser ;) the one and only Kano), namely Another Life, and released in 1983. Some mere 20 years afterwards, the house tunes that sample it are even as outstanding as the original version. True dancefloor killers.

“Another life another lover, where in the world do lonely dreams ever go?” So incredibly dazzling and catchy that it’s impossible to get it out of your head.

Kano – Another Life

Two different portions of the original song sampled or re-created, two different artists and styles, two insane House reduxes.

Lifelike & Kris Menace – Discopolis (Alan Braxe Remix) (2006)

\ˈmat-el-vin,\ ?

Another artist from the informal Valerie crew I’ve recently stumbled upon, Maethelvin (whatever how it’s pronounced) has an interesting sound.

The analogy with The Outrunners‘ sound (recently reviewed) is quite appropriate but there’s something else and I can’t define it. One thing for sure, it sounds good.

Maethelvin – Plan B (2007)

The Outrunners

The Outrunners, aka Pierre De La Touche & Stephen Falken, are members of a collective called Valerie. Recently signed on Lemon & Lime Records, their new track really delivers in both nostalgic feelings and disco raw power.

Adventure

I first discovered Lifelike with the track Obsessions back in 2002, and since then I’m amazed by the overall quality of his productions.

His most popular track is most certainly the acclaimed dancefloor smasher Discopolis (in collaboration with Kris Menace) in 2005.

Here’s another of his best track to date, released the same year. It’s epic, thrilling, and disco.

Lifelike – Adventure

Lifelike’s first album should be in the making right now, don’t miss Golden Boy (working title?) when it’s out
