alan braxe + fenech-soler.


remember the time when everyone got totally excited when a new production from alan braxe showed up somewhere? i just noticed how there hasn't been any hysteria associated with him for quite a while, probably mainly because he laid low for such a long time but i guess it is also due to his rather weak solo tracks 'addicted' and 'nightwatcher' (yeah i know, same thing, guys). nevertheless, alan braxe was probably just busy getting the uk outfit fenech-soler on track with their debut single 'the cult of romance' on his very own label vulture.

the single release also includes a remix by alan braxe. while i have to admit i did not expect too much, the fact that i had it on repeat all weekend should be proof enough that it's really good. not your typical french house at all, yet conveying the signature warmth and dreaminess, this is definitely one of the most beautiful and opinionated tracks to come out of france in a long time. but listen for yourself, as i am clearly struggling for on-point comparisons!

fenech-soler - the cult of romance (alan braxe remix)

if you like what you hear, show these guys some support and buy the single on itunes. many thanks to the lovely people over at the up and coming too many sebastians for clearing this track for blogging. now let's end this post with a rather pathetic 'welcome back alan braxe, music sounds better with you!'

Braxe as top. As always. I'm very impress by the fact that Braxe is still here after about 10 years on the top.
Music sounds better with him !

I've never heard Braxe before (quite new to this genre of music) but I really am loving it, especially the percussions with the slightly haunting vocals.
