Je suis la discothèque
So who is the this nice looking chap on the left? Alain Quême of course... What, it doesn't ring a bell? OK, then you might know him as Alan Braxe - one of the select group frenchmen to bring housemusic to the masses. He scored bigtime with Distortion Disco favorite Music Sounds Better you - seriously, has there ever been written a better lovesong?
The very premise that music sounds better with someone is great and oh so true.

Well as things go, people sometimes go back into the underground, which was what mr Braxe did until Norwegian electro nerd Erlend Øye rediscovered him and his great track Rubicon. Since then he has been a firm favorite on the remix market, constantly reminding us what was so great about French filter house while at the same time updating the lush synth sounds with an even smoother sound... Yes, apparently that was/is possible!

First track is one of last years greatest remixes in this blogs opinion - A great buildup, synths as wet as a trip through the rain forest, patience is the key word. What I really like about the track is the fact that nothing seems forced everything fits like a gem-studded white glove.

Second songs is the recent remix of Shakedown's Lonely Road. If Kraftwerk had been forced to watch icky fleshy real life human beings believe that music sounded better with a significant other, then this is probably what they would have made on the following album - again his buildup are immaculate.
