marchand is french for 'merchant', or dutch for maarten hoogstraten. maarten (who is also half of bingo players) created the alias to vent some french-electro sounding frustration on the dancefloor. throw lifelike in blender with alan braxe, you get marchand.
'supernova' sweeps off with the usual palette of sounds in the french-electro suitcase, but uniquely builds into spacey waves of sound you can almost see, incorporating a sample you should all be familiar with. on the flip, and also in the same musical key, is 'starlove'. a funky, late night, moog-equipped remedy. a bit on the softer side, but just as enjoyable.
marchand - supernova
marchand - starlove
