Alan Braxe & Fred Falke


Our favorite French House production duo is back at it again, this time remixing a track from the "so-hot-right-now" Dragonette, a UK synth-pop band featuring (former?) New Deal bass player, Dan Kurtz.

Braxe & Falke are some of the most sought after producers/remixers in the game right now, applying their Midas touch to everyone from Royksopp, to Annie, to Goldfrapp, to DFA 1979, not to mention one of our favorite remixes ever, "Bossy" by Kelis (see below). While the duo has never released an LP outright, check out The Upper Cuts, a collection of singles released in 2005 that gathered the majority of their songs (ie, not remixes of other people) onto one disc. Check out one of our favorite tracks from the disc, "Rubicon", below.

As an added bonus, relive the glory from Braxe's breakout 1998 collaboration with Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk) and Benjamin Diamond: Stardust's "Music Sounds Better With You", the smash hit that craftily sampled Chaka Khan's "Fate", and would end up being the band's only single they ever released.
