If there are two producers who can return French house back to its former glory then it’s LifeLike, aka Laurent Ash, and Alan Braxe.
LifeLike has just released the first single from his forthcoming album, ‘Electronic Dreams‘, and the single is a sure-fire return to the form for the French producer, and in turn French house. We’ve got the exclusive world premiere of Alan Braxe’s remix of ‘Overdrive‘ – and you’re in for a treat as it’s a grade-a French banger.
Braxe handles his remix in suitably flamboyant fashion; he doesn’t completely reconstruct original but instead concentrates on drawing out every last sinew of energy out of the original’s rasping melody – and then repurposes it for a full-fat French house remix backed by clattering drums, walls of bass and just enough melody to keep you sane.
Lifelike’s new single which was co-written alongside disco demigod Giorgio Moroder also comes with a rather fetching video which focusses on one of the French’s favourite past-times; the derrier. Basically, it couldn’t be anymore French if it tried.
LifeLike’s new album, ‘Electronic Dreams‘, is scheduled for a April 2015 release and features collaborations with A-Trak, Chromeo, Oliver, Electric Youth (Drive’s motion picture soundtrack), Yota, and Audio District.
