Download // Para One Shares Live Edit of “YOU”

Posted in Tracks by on Jul 12, 2013

Over a year since Para One‘s game-changing album “Passion” on Marble Music, the man in question has been on the road playing shows and festivals alike all across Europe. This track was actually my favorite cut from the album, which (by the way) just listening to the preview of that album was a serious game changer in every sense of the term. Out of the box thinking and under...

L’Étranger – Don’t Ever Change EP

Posted in Tracks by on May 13, 2013

L’Étranger (loosely translated “The Stranger”) – Ben Thomas has been no stranger to his French touch stylings over the past few years. To commemorate a different slant to his productions, he’s launched a new label, Thomorrow. The primary focus will be to showcase some of his one-offs and a slightly deeper side of his daily production routine. So here’s the...

Fort Romeau – Modcast #142

Posted in Playlists by on Apr 17, 2013

Australia’s Modular Recordings summoned the mystical vibes of Fort Romeau for their latest Modcast. For me, this wasn’t your usual dance house podcast, and there’s a strong indication he wasn’t simply going through the motions while putting this set together. I can’t remember how many times I’ve listened through the whole session, but each time I come out of...

VanGuard – ECHO

Posted in Tracks by on Feb 14, 2013

After the two fellas behind the funky project, VanGuard, split ways some months ago – the remaining producer, James Thomas, stuck around to keep the name alive. VanGuard has typically slanted on the side of French filter, sample-heavy, and what has been referenced as “romantic” music. With the new release of his track, E C H O, it’s safe to say James has found some...

FKJ – So Much To Me

Posted in Tracks by on Feb 8, 2013

FKJ (or French Kiwi Juice, as you’ll come to know) – I really don’t know why we haven’t been posting his tracks sooner. He’s no stranger to producing, but shares his talent over the relatively new French label Roche Musique, along with mates Kartell and Xtrafunk. I’ve been following FKJ for a few months now and his productions always come out so soulful,...

L’Étranger to Release “1997″ EP Next Monday, December 3rd

Posted in Tracks by on Nov 26, 2012

L’Étranger is the French touch alias of UK’s Ben Thomas – a name you’ll hear plenty of upon the release of his 1997 EP next Monday on La Bombe. I’ve noticed few artists of his caliber consistently progress with each track opened up to the public. Sweet, sensual and painstakingly composed, you feel the emotion in each of Ben’s works. Below is a cut,...

Cherokee – American Spirit EP

Posted in Tracks by on Oct 16, 2012

Who remembers Cherokee‘s daft punk remix, circa November 2011? A seminal landmark in their production resumé; that one remix (in the bonus section below) pushed them into an international spotlight overnight. The attention was well-deserved and on what better platform than improving upon a daft punk classic? They’ve been keeping busy, playing shows all over France while putting out a...

The Phantom’s Revenge – My Name Is Patrick Bateman [MegaMix]

Posted in Playlists by on Sep 11, 2012

Oh yes, 2 hours of disco fury from Nîmes, France’s own – The Phantom’s Revenge. We haven’t witnessed a MegaMix like this from TPR for 51 straight weeks, when we last delivered his Ladies Love Cool James MegaMix Sept. 18, 2011. He once again mixed this one on Ableton, which in his defense he writes, “please don’t give me that ‘pffff doing mixtape on...
