ALAN BRAXE & FRED FALKE & FRIENDS - THE UPPER CUTS (2023 ED.) VINYL (LTD. ED. BLUE & PINK 2LP GATEFOLD)
LIMITED EDITION BLUE & PINK 2LP VINYL GATEFOLD
Release Date: 31st March 2023
"‘The Upper Cuts (2023 Edition)’, originally released in 2005, features newly remastered versions of Alan Braxe’s tracks with Fred Falke, his remix of Shakedown’s ‘At Night’, and two of his most beloved and influential collaborations - The Paradise’s ‘In Love With You’, the elegant slice of heartbreak house he created with vocalist Romuald Louverjon, and Stardust’s ‘Music Sounds Better With You’, the worldwide hit he produced with Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and singer Benjamin Diamond, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. ‘The Upper Cuts (2023 Edition)’ also adds seven bonus tracks, including Braxe’s remix of Britney Spears’ ‘Anticipating’, and two completely new tracks, ‘True Love’ and ‘Never Coming Back’, which features the Norwegian pop artist Annie. ‘The Upper Cuts’ is a classic work of house music history that can still light up a dancefloor; a work of sadness and joy; darkness and light; profundity and release. If you want to know how Braxe helped to create a new template for the French house sound in the early 2000s, right when French house needed it most; or how Braxe’s gorgeously clean productions and evocative synth melody provided a bridge between the first wave of French house and the Ed Banger / Justice / Kitsuné axis that followed; then your answer starts here."
