symbolone + dvas.


discodust favorites symbolone return with what is probably their best work ever, at least according to me. 'love juice' was awesome already but their remix of 'ambient room' by canada-based dvas is probably the best piece of 'french house' i have heard in a long time (and i always wonder if you'd really call it 'french house' when it doesn't even sound a lot like house but i guess that's what all we bloggers more or less agreed on).

they took the really lovely chords of the original, added some great c-64 style leads, a moroderesque bassline, put some more effects on the vocals and casted some of their trademark vintage magic and ended up with a true masterpiece! so if you have been a bit disappoined by the recent output of fred falke and lifelike, here come the leaders of the french house new school: symbolone.

dvas - ambient room (symbolone remix)

dvas also hooked us up with a few tracks that are definitely worth checking out as well as they have some really beautiful melodies and like i said earlier - really lovely chords in their tracks. the dance mix of 'watching you' is their latest work, 'forever' is a bit older and my favorite among their tracks and the original of 'ambient room' is up for grabs as well. keep an eye on dvas, they will be up there in no time, playing in front of drunk teens worldwide.

show dvas and symbolone some myspace love!

I've always thought of French House as Filter House - the early daft Punk, Cassius, Phantom's Revenge, Louis LaRoche, older Sebastien Leger.

this is great. i thought i was still listening to the pointer sisters for a second.

Love DVAs and Symbol One is great, but how could anyone be disappointed with Lifelike??? His stuff is amazing..

aleks said...

well, of course they are great but not everything they made recently was good.

there have been a lot of outstanding tracks from them but i found myself thinking 'this is not too great' rather often when checking their last bunch of mixes.

and obviously especially the fred falke and miami horror remix of ladyhawke was disappointing for quite some people.

DVAS is an amazing "Band" live, show their Myspace some love. They've been killing it in Canada for years.

re anon:
how are you going to have a blog and say stuff like "Well, depends on ur taste, but I'm a little disappointed with fred falke's output. ~*That's just my opinion tho u can have urs!*~"
This blog is superior because there is superior taste here. So shut up and maybe you'll absorb some.

Dvas ripped off the structure and ideas of Digital Love from Daft Pûnk! Second song in that three-pack posted...

Dvas - Forever, that is.

Forever sounds nothing like Digital Love.
