Bright-Light-Bright-Light---An-Open-Heart-Remix-Single

London based, Bright Light Bright Light is making waves…. it’s hard not to when Elton John is your number one fan, am I right? While currently on tour with the ‘Rocketman,’ BLBL’s sophomore album is on the way and here, we have the premiere of Alan Braxe’s remix for the lead single, ‘An Open Heart.’

Laying down a bed of perfectly tuned arpeggios and shimmering pads for BLBL’s smooth vocals to float upon, Braxe makes it clear that his recent hiatus hasn’t been spent resting on his laurels.

Discobelle, in association with Alan Braxe and Vulture Music, is proud to present the exclusive series: “Tales From The Hard Disk; The Bonus Beat Collection.” Here’s a personal note from Mr. Braxe himself to give a little info on the series:

“TALES FROM THE HARD DISK” … ‘THE BONUS BEAT COLLECTION”

Sometimes, it can be difficult to finish that idea you’re working on and so after many attempts (and lots of coffee) it ends up in the old “to do box”, locked away in the bytes of the hard drive or sequencer disk, bound never to see the light of day…

After many years, the reviled “demo box” was getting a bit fat and so I would like to share some of these “unfinished thoughts” with you via our friends at Discobelle. It’s a pleasure to present… ‘THE BONUS BEAT COLLECTION”

Most of the tracks you’ll hear in this collection have been done in 2 or 3 days tops and are not 100% finished. I figured, better to share them with you rather then leave them fragmenting on my antique hard drive!

Yours faithfully,

Alan Braxe

And here’s a little blurb about what you are about to hear:

“Bonus Beat One”

This “morceau” has been sitting around on a SP 1200 floppy disk since at least 2001… who knows how much longer it could have been there! I fired up “old faithful” SP and with all the groaning and grunting of those classic mechanisms, the beast sprung to life and spat this out. A little studio “polish,” a few new band members on the drums and I give you the first in our series for your own personal enjoyment!

Stay tuned …

So, there you have it! A steady stream of unreleased Braxe material for FREE DOWNLOAD from your pals at Vulture Music and Discobelle!!! We <3 U!

Be-Yourself-Chandler

Continuing his re-edit/tribute series in preparation for a pair of Vulture Music Label Nights, Xander Milne‘s second offering comes in the form of this updated take on Kerri Chandler’s classic remix of The System.

As a bonus, Vulture Music boss man, Alan Braxe teams up with Xander to produce a special mix in celebration of the label nights. Curated by Braxe and mixed by Xander, the “VULTURE 2013″ mixtape champions 10+ years of Vulture Music greatness…. get educated!

nightdrive

If you haven’t heard, there’s a new band in town and their name is Night Drive. Made up of Texas natives Rodney Connell and Brandon Duhon, Night Drive is the type of music you would hear on a car stereo if Giorgio Moroder and Ray Bradbury were driving late at night through a buzzing metropolis.

Today the two are kicking off an Alphabet themed mix set series called “Disco Alphabet”, where each mix set only features tracks with artists names starting with that letter from the alphabet. We’re happy to be presenting the first mix in the series for the letter “A”, which features tracks by everyone from Astrolabe to Anoraak to Alex Metric. As with all of the mixes in our series, Night Drive’s “Disco Alphabet – Volume A” is available as a free download so dig in.

Here’s a tidbit about the mix from the band themselves:
It’s slightly over an hour and starts with an old italo track. It has a mix of old and new (mostly new), disco-flavored stuff at around 122 bpm, no bangers or aggro stuff.

Tracklist:
1. Automat – Droid (Cecile edit)
2. Astrolabe – Cave (Discotexas edit)
3. Annie – Songs Remind Me of You (The Swiss Remix)
4. Atlas Genius – Back Seat (Goldroom Remix)
5. Amin Peck – Running Straight
6. Alexander Holland – City Full of Lights (Gigamesh Remix)
7. Austra – Beat and the Pulse (Still Going Remix)
8. Abba – Midnight Mouse (Mighty Mouse Not So Official Edit Type Thingy)
9. All the Lights – Chasing Colours (Moonchild Remix)
10. Anoraak – Nightdrive (haha!) with You (Tesla Boy Remix)
11. Ali Love – Smoke and Mirrors
12. Aston Shuffle – I Wanna See You (Dcup Remix)
13. Alex Metric – Scandalism
14. Aeons – Beyond the Satellites (Ted’s Like Whoa! mix)
15. Acos Coolkas – Free Flight (Sare Havlicek Mix)
16. Alan Braxe and Fred Falke – Chrystal City
