Brodinski’s Bromance Records unleashes another gem of a release in the form of Stuart Price’s “In The Night.” While released under his Jacques Lu Cont alias, Stuart Price reverts to a sound more recognizable as the one he employed with his Les Rythmes Digitales moniker. The funky electro bassline that makes up the heart of “In The Night” is very reminiscent of the similar vibe in his classic track “Jacques Your Body.” Regardless of which alias Stuart chooses to release his music under, when we see his fingerprints on a track, we know that we are in for a top tier production.
Jacques Lu Cont – In The Night (Original Mix)
If you’ve heard Jacques Lu Cont’s remix of Coldplay’s “Charlie Brown,” then you’ll know why we were extremely excited to hear a preview of his new single. Stuart Price’s latest effort, “In The Night,” will be released on Brodinski’s Bromance Records label later this month. “In The Night” is certainly a change of pace from his more mainstream remixes and features a funky bassline punctured by a staccato drum beat. Those of you who have followed Stuart’s career will be reminded of the music he put out under his Les Rythmes Digitales moniker. We’re looking forward to the September 24th release.
Today marks the final day of voting for the DJ Mag Top 100 poll. In spite of the fact that this poll is misrepresented and holds little to no value, it doesn’t hurt to pay tribute to the DJs we love and have become devoted to. For most of us, our standpoints are based on a number of things. Whether it be the music releases we follow everyday, the live performances we witness every weekend, the very own cities we live in, or perhaps the people we associate ourselves with; DJs become our favorite based on personal sentiment. This doesn’t make one person’s opinion better than the other, or make someone right and wrong. We all live different lives, and appreciate music in different ways. So, with that being said, I present to you my five favorite DJs of the moment.

I know Brodinski and Gesaffelstein are two separate acts, but it is hard to talk about one without the other. Every release from these two in the last year has been intricately developed and wildly unique. Whether it be together or under their own names, Brodinski and Gesaffelstein have been masterfully creating gritty techno tracks in a scene dominated by progressive beats, flighty synths and radio-friendly vocals… with no signs of slowing down or selling out.
Gesaffelstein, Gesaffelstein, Gesaffelstein, say that five times fast. Alongside label-mate and longtime friend Brodinski, Gesaffelstein has been creating some of the most unique and intriguing techno productions in recent memory. His style is crisp and clean while remaining dark and foreboding. This is the stuff that is born from the floors of warehouses, sweat soaked and primal with a heavy dose of weird. There isn’t even the faintest glimmer of pop to be found here, no euphoric synths or big room vocals – just grinding, teeth-rattling techno.
Check out “Belgium” and “Depravity” after the break.
If you haven’t familiarized yourself with the two biggest studs coming out of the French techno scene, then here is the perfect forum to do so. Brodinski and Gesaffelstein aren’t your average Parisian persona; they command a certain swag, consequence of alluring demeanor, charisma, and mind blowing DJ sets. Rules don’t apply to these two – cigarettes lit at all times. Since last year’s Holy Ship, the buzz has piqued the interest of many; and with the continued domination of Brodinski’s Bromance imprint, we see no slowing in sight. Continue past the break for our full rundown on the mix and track list. (more…)
It’s been awhile since I have listened to a track that made my jaw drop, one where the only way to describe it is with a deep breath and a long exasperated “FUCK. ME.” Brodinski’s latest, and his second collaboration with Louisahhh!, is that type of track. Dark and brooding with one helluva kick, “Nobody Rules The Streets” might not be for casual dance music fans — but for those of us looking for something less predictable (and ultimately more inspired) it’s complete perfection. Louisahhh!’s vocals work perfectly overlaid atop the wailing sirens while the deep groove and bone-rattling kick keeps you entranced.
Even in its infancy, the Bromance imprint continues to release monstrous tracks from up-and-coming talent. Be on the look out to grab the Bromance #3 EP when it drops on June 11th for more goth-tinged French electro.
Last week we previewed Calvin Harris’s upbeat remix of “Only the Horses.” Today, Brodinski returns with a haunting re-imagining of the pop track. Deep and dark, Brodinski flexes his techno muscle with a driving bass line and wonky synths. Whenever we hear a new Brodinski remix, we can’t help but question why this guy isn’t getting more attention – every track he attaches his name to is impeccable. Watch for this one to be released on May 13th in the official remix package.
