hit the braxe! (sorry)
i recently heard an interview with the charming fred falke, former partner in crime to the mighty alan braxe. i say former because mr. falke stated in the interview that the two are no longer working together (noooooo!!). falke said they were separating because they planned to go in different directions musically, which i find a little hard to believe considering their respective solo works have always been remarkably similar (not that it's a bad thing). i smell a falling out, heh.
anyway, they teamed up earlier this year to deliver a second, noticably different remix or kelis's track bossy. their first attempt at remixing this was a little flat imho, but this is much better. keeps the vocal intact and pushes all the right filter-disco + funk buttons.

this next track is nothing short of gorgeous. nu-school french wonder-kid danger! does his usual thing to a track by fellow frenchie sebastian tellier and the result is a fucking stunner. glorious eighties synth stabs and some of the nicest chord progressions around. would kill a dancefloor fo shiz.

i posted the danger! remix of that new-ish estelle track about a month ago, and remarked that it would sound waaaay better without the poxy vocal. my dreams have come true. woot!
