Roman Flügel and Andrew Weatherall supply two outstanding remixes of Phil Kieran recent album ‘Blinded By The Sun’, which David Holmes claimed is “one of the best electronic dance inspired records in recent times.”

Mixmag described Phil Kieran as “one of those producers that impresses with every release” so it comes as no surprise that two music heavyweights have jumped on board for remix duty. Kieran accounts Flügel and Weatherall to both having a heavy influence on his career.

German DJ and producer Roman Flügel is easily one of the most revered names in the dance music spectrum. His take on ‘No Life’ is a masterclass in production. Flügel has created a track that is powerful whilst also superbly intricate. Flügel holds over twenty years of experience, extensively releasing on a number of labels whilst also co-founding Ongaku, Klang and Playhouse Recordings.

UK born DJ and producer maestro Andrew Weatherall remixes ‘Finds Love’ and reminds the listener of how beautiful electronic music can be. Combining cosmic layers with the ethereal vocal, this is a lesson in what a remix means. Weatherall has been experimenting with techno since the 90s, and well regarded as one of the world’s most influential DJs.

Black Devil Disco Club – H Friend (Vox & Dance Remixes)


Celebrating 40 years of electronic music exploration this year saw the re-release of three seminal works by Bernard Fevre (aka Black Devil), ‘Suspense’ (1975), ‘Cosmos 2043’ (1977) and the storied ‘Disco Club’ (1978). Completing this anniversary year Fevre now returns with three EPs featuring new remixes of his 1978 underground cosmic disco hit ‘H Friend’ from the likes of Andrew Weatherall, GoldFFinch, Turzi and many more.

The first EP (released 13 November) is aimed directly at the dancefloor with remixes from Berlin based duo Africaine 808, French Psychedelic Space Rocker Turzi, Sao Paulo’s DJ Tide, and last but not least world famous British Acid House DJ & producer Andrew Weatherall, who contributes the first of two remixes.

The second EP (released 27 November) makes more use of the re-recorded vocals by British singer Jo Apps and features remixes from Adelaide based Luke Million, Belgian Techno duo GoldFFinch, Anglo-French rising stars Loframes and the second of Andrew Weatherall’s remixes.

The final EP (released 11 December) is especially dedicated to Japan. 45 years after touring the country with his first band Francs Garçons, Bernard returned to Japan in 2015 for his first solo tour of Japan and was amazed by the music a new generation of artists were creating. Featuring remixes from Carpainter, Oorutaichi, Free Disco Permanent Midnight and Sparrows (the solo project of CRYSTAL’s Ryota Miyake), it’s a wildly eclectic set of remixes that perfectly finishes off this set.

A pioneering member of France’s electronic music scene in the 1970s, Fevre’s career entered a new phase in the early ‘00s when his ‘Disco Club’ album was rediscovered and reissued by Richard D. James (Aphex Twin) on his Rephlex label. Since then Fevre has gone on to be sampled by the likes of the Chemical Brothers and released several new albums on Lo Recordings collaborating with artists such as Jon Spencer, Afrika Bambaataa, Nancy Sinatra, Faris Badwan (The Horrors), Mondkopf and Daniel Avery

Red Snapper – Card Trick EP

red snapper

To celebrate the great reaction to the recent Red Snapper‘s ‘Hyena’ album, Lo Recordings have splurged out and delivered us this beautiful 12”. Seriously limited (only 250 copies worldwide) and resplendent in a screenprinted bag with hand stamped labels and clear cellophane outer.

Featuring the original of Card Trick plus 3 remixes of outstanding quality. Tici Taci stretch out ‘Card Trick’ to create a rubberised elongation that could last all night…anyone for snake house? Weatherall is smashing the Tici Taci tracks at the moment. Village Tap – Auntie Flo Remix – bumping afro groove that takes you to the bridge overlooking a wild goat rave…deep dirty and sure to get you rutting. Village Tap – Rich Thair Remix – a chunky re-rub that oils the parts you didn’t even realize needed lubrication. It sound sounds like Red Snapper alright, but newly infused and enthused with a serious dose of voodoo funk.

Watch the video for “Card Trick” and stream the full EP below.
