marchand.


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

if you like what you hear, the release just dropped via us two music, show some friendly support on junodownload and myspace.

I've heard the Starlove track a long time ago as a preview on his myspace, but it still surprises me with its beauty.
Love it!

Wow, that sample really caught me off guard, I was expecting something more recent.

SPOLIER:
The sample is "Send Me an Angel".

Better melodies than Braxe and Lifelike IMO. This guy doesn't just ride on juicy basslines and poptight production. The melo is fucking moving and sweet.

Please add some trance in the recipy, this dude sounds like he experienced better melodic parts of the 90s.
