Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , on March 24, 2011 by dk

Para One and friends release a megamix to launch new label Marble preluding his exclusive UK performance at London’s Scala on 9th April

In the lead up to his exclusive London performance for The Playground on the 9th April at Scala, a megamix full of Para One tracks from new label Marble has been released. The label has been launched in response to the closing of legendary French electro imprint, Institubes, and is co-founded by coherts Bobmo and Surkin.

The megamix which highlights tracks soon to come from the label has already amassed an enormous amount of attention within the 1st week with tens of thousand of plays and hundreds of comments already proving their unique brand of peak-time electro music is in demand more than ever.

Manager of Para One, Olivier Linglet, states:

‘Even though the demise of Institubes may come as a shock to the electronic music world, when Para decided to team up with the others to form Marble there was no doubt in my mind and theirs that this is going to be a huge success. It will continue to carry the French electronic sound that is already gaining worldwide attention. The megamix reflects this as will Para’s live show in London.’

tracks coming out soon on Marble : Marble Players, Surkin, Para One, Bobmo, Teki latex, Myd, Das glow, Canblaster.

Download “Overdrive (Morgan Geist remix)”+more HERE
Bot’Ox scowl and you can never see their hands and they look like hitmen from the future. This remix of “Blue Steel” makes zero effort to dampen that image, DFA pair Still Going turning in the sort of pulsing disco/techno cut that will only ever conjure thoughts of flying cars joy-ridden through the peaks of pollution choked dystopian skylines.”

Due to popular demand and before the October 23 release of their first album Babylon By Car, Bot’ox – AKA Benjamin Boguet (alias Cosmo Vitelli) and Julien Briffaz (half of Tekël) asked to a bunch of talented producers to remix their 2009 pop single “Blue Steel.”

Para One and Tacteel celebrates their comeback with an outstanding midtempo remix. Classy, elegant and a must hear. Liv Spencer and Eric Duncan aka DFA’s Still Going show once again they’ve turned into masters of modern Italo Disco and High NRJ, and deliver a real banger. I:Cube produces a sharp and addictive deep vision of the tune while Finland’s Hannulelauri – responsible for the awesome “Super Monkey” – keep the pop vibes of the original. As a bonus, you’ll find the first killer remix done by Azari & III in the instrumental version, as well as the acappella of the original song. Speaking of the original, those in Europe might be familiar with “Blue Steel” from this Peugeot 207 advert

“Babylon By Car”
October 23 – I’m A Cliché Records

From “Brand New Cadillac” by Vince Taylor (or by the Clash!) to Buzzcocks’ “Fast Cars”, and from “Warm Leatherette” by the Normal to Kraftwerk’s “Autobahn” (as well as the mechanical hymns made by all the producers from Detroit), cars and their mythology have always had a pride of place in music. But in 2010, as the mechanical reign is once and for all coming to an end, it’s safe to say that it has never been staged with as much reference and tribute, obsession and ambiguity, than in Bot’Ox.

And it took no less than a symbol as powerful as the end of the industrial era, combined with the inherent nostalgia of the well and truly lost golden age, to bring together Benjamin Boguet (alias Cosmo Vitelli) and Julien Briffaz (half of Tekël). But what brings together the DJ and French producer- knighted by what must be called the French Touch between 1997 and 2002- and Tekël, an electro house duo in which Julien Briffaz glides as a drummer and sound engineer? Nothing or not much. If only a mutual curiosity, a passion for music in general and a fixed idea brought to life in Bot’Ox.

Two different paths, two generations, that yet seem to have captured simultaneously and backwards – in the rear view mirror of an old sports car or a large sedan- the relics of a time when roads, highways, driving and the curves of a beautiful car, were a common pleasure and not a destructive one. And it’s done! After a handful of heavily dented singles, released on labels as essential as DFA, I’m a Cliché, DC Recordings or Marketing, the improbable duo is releasing its first real album, with the prophetic title – a manifesto of the rushing end of the century – Babylon By Car.

If the album brings together as edits, some of the duo’s original tracks: from “Car Jacked” to “Crashed Cadillac” and from “Rue de l’Arsenal” to “Tragedy Symphony” – in other words, the dark and slightly vicious side of Bot’Ox- another aspect of the schizoid personality of the duo is revealed as we discover new songs with a guilty pleasure. These tracks are mellower, but remain somewhat unsettling with their (false) monotony. Like “Tout Passe, Tout Lasse, Tout Casse,” sung by Judy Nylon, half of the cult band Snatch, from the No Wave New York of the late 70’s, or “Slow Burning,” at the end of the album, sung by Mark Kerr, also on “Tragedy Symphony,” as well as “Blue Steel” glorified by the toneless voice of Anna Jean, from the band Domingo. Behind the speeding and the screeching (“Overdrive”), the leaps and the acid rise – like post-punk bile- we find a new softness. A nonchalance made of contemplative tracks and moments of wild calm – before the inevitable crash, of course, that will surely change the image of Bot’Ox.

In the end, instead of the car cliché, we’ll keep the melancholy of a long tracking shot, both esthetic and timely. Because “Babylon By Car” is entirely in this ambiguity, between nostalgia and modernity, between pop and post-punk, electronic music and rock, past and future – it’s where Kraftwerk’s “Men-machines” celebrated an endless future with obedient machines. Bot’Ox summons the ghosts of the century, from Cybotron to Wire, from Fad Gadget to John Carpenter, to give birth to greatly personal music and, in all honesty, a rather unique sound in French electronic music.

Bot’Ox doesn’t swagger to keep their motors running. Both melodic and fierce, “Babylon By Car” comes as it is. And it’s probably the best way to take it in.
