This week Jerry Bouthier’s awesome label, Continental, released the new double A-side single from fresh French ElectroPop outfit Bleu Toucan. The duo is made up of Léo Becerra (The Victorias) and Emmanuel Bonzé (Made In Taiwan) and have already released one slab of DiscoPop via Profil de Face Records, now this second release kicks things up a notch. The single comes equipped with the relevant quota of reMixes, including this dreamy gem, of the track Imagine, from our favourite Parisians, Reflex.
Reflex serve up something a little different to their normal output with this one. Less Tropical, more deep and groovy House. The French duo show off their dreamy side with a hazy production of warm tones and atmospheric pads over a bed of shuffling House beats and pumping and subby bassline. It’s awesome to see this other side to Reflex as the twosome flex their musical muscles. You should check out the whole single, it’s top stuff.
Sunset is the new single from one of our favourite French SynthPop duos Reflex. Out this week on Tigers On A Leash, Sunset is the first new single we’ve had from these two since June last year’s Together, but Lud and André haven;t been just sitting around, aside from touring the globe it seems like these guys have been hard at work putting together a stunning new release.
Getting ready for the summer, Reflex bring the good-time vibes with them as they deliver a densely layers, buoyant ElectroPop tune, loaded with thick synths and a compelling Disco beat. Ludmila’s vocals shimmy over the tune like silk. Whether poolside or at the beach, this tune really does encapsulate Seadisco. Not that we’re sure what Seadisco is, but it definitely sounds like this. For a Housier take on the track check out the Club Mix, injecting some 909 drums and growling synth bass into the airy mix to bring the tune to harder dancefloors. The whole EP, out this week, is pretty stunning. We’re really hoping Reflex have an album in the works, we think they’d work really well as an album artist.

The current single from French ElectroPop duo Reflex, Together, out now on Continental Records, has been getting some serious play round these parts during the warmer months. It’s now available in video for that perfectly captures the summery vibe.
Pieced together from footage of Reflex’s recent trip to the US, the clip contains some nice bits of Las Vegas going on. Ah the memories.
So, we’ve been a little weary of posting any of the myriad reMixes of tracks from Daft Punk’s awesome new album Random Access Memories. There’s a squillion of them out there, every producer and his dog wants in on the action, to ride the tailcoats of hype, and they run the gauntlet from ‘better than the original’ to ‘OGM just stop trying to be a musician right now’. ‘Cos there’s so many posting about them would be like opening floodgates we really haven’t got time for.
Our favourite French duo (which is quite a sweeping statement, ‘cos, y’know, Daft Punk) Reflex are back, mere weeks after the release of their new single, Together, with a swanky reMix collection to fill your ears with. Together is currently out on Jerry Bouthier’s Continental Records with the reMix collection coming next week. The line up for the package includes the like of Colour Vision and Tronik Youth, alongside Punks Jump Up, Oxford and Tempogeist.
Punks Jump Up’s take on the track is full-on jackin’ House. This one’s all thumping 909 beats, thick basslines and an utterly compelling piano hook. Ripe to get the dancefloor whipped into a frenzy in some dark, strobe lit, club, Punks Jump Up’s reMix is just a pure House juggernaut. Oxford, on the other hand, turns-in a typically smooth Disco reMix, all rolling basslines and vintage stabs. A lush slice of laid back synth Funk, Oxford’s version injects the release with a little poolside cool. Playing out the EP with some shuffling retro Funk is Tempogeist, who’s massive reMix combines synthetic Nu-Disco with slick vintage Pop sheen, delivering a version of Together with a feel of a 80s extended 12” reMix, this one;s a free download too. It’s a storming reMix package and a nice compliment to the original single, easily worth your attention.
We’ve been eagerly waiting for this one for quite a while now, it’s the new single from France’s finest ElectroPop duo Reflex. Out next week on Continental Records, the single, titled Together, is the prefect material for these two to make a return to releasing original tunes. it’s big, bombastic and fun and has a hook that’ll be stuck in your head all day.
Together, drops just in time for the warmer months, and that’s a good job too as there is a touch of the Balearic about it. This is all about big piano riffs and rumbling Disco bass, all wrapped up in a surprisingly euphoric package that’s ripe for some festival season anthem kudos. Loaded with groove laden House undertones that permeate every corner of the track, from the irritate beats to Lud’s chanting, call-to-arms vocals, Together is just what’s needed on this summers dancefloors. reMixes on the single come from Boys Get Hurt, Pat Lok and Ryan Riot. Pat brings one his wonderful deep, retro House tunes to the table. If the original is set for open air dancing, then the Pat Lok reMix is destined for warehouses. Abrasive House riffs and Chicago organ hooks relentlessly power the track on featuring all manner of modulated vocals. Ryan Riot gives the track a little 80s flavour with his SynthWave version of the track. Mixing in a hint of 90s Trance, Riot bring his typical fair for rolling synthesizer love. You won’t be able to shake that arpeggiated bassline. A pretty stunning release from Reflex, we’re hoping there is an album in the works.
