Having made a big impact with their debut releases in 2015, Anglo-French duo Loframes (London based singer/songwriter James Yuill and Antibes producer/restauranteur Franck Russo) kickstart the new year with a brand new remix of Australian synth/indie/pop stars Miami Horror’s ‘Cellophane’. The perfect winter pick-me-up, Loframes give the already sunny original an extra injection of sunshine and transforming the track into a sparkling house number sure to raise the temperature on dance floors worldwide.
Releasing their debut, ‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’, back in April 2015 to widespread acclaim from press, DJs and the public, Loframes built on that success with their club hit ‘In Love With You’ and remixes for the likes of French Electronic Music pioneer Black Devil Disco Club and British singer David Harks. With several more remixes set for release in the coming months the pair are just putting the finishing touches to their next single due out this spring.
Following on from the success of their debut single Loframes (London born artist James Yuill and French producer Franck Russo) return with a cover of the classic French House track ‘In Love With You’ by Paradise (Alan Braxe). One of the duo’s favourite tracks, the cover has already received the enthusiastic blessing of Mr Braxe and comes complete with remixes from Parisian producer Monsieur Adi, Brighton’s Aashton and Belgian new-comers Shut Yo Waffle.
It’s out on December 11th. Both the original and Monsieur Adi remixes will be available to download for free ahead of release.
With remix credits for the likes of Lana Del Rey and Bastille, Monsieur Adi is one of France’s most exciting and in-demand producers and his remix of ‘ILWY’ shows just why, lowering the tempo whilst raising the funk to turn in an irresistible remix. Meanwhile having remixed Loframes debut, Brighton’s Aashton returns with another of his trademark club tools, perfect for when you just want to lock the dancefloor in and take them deep into the mix.
‘Tripping Ghosts’ is the new single from Brighton based singer David Harks, his collaboration with composer/producer Dan Berridge (Broadway Project). Set for release this December on JumJum Records ‘TrippingGhosts’ sees Hark’s haunted vocals weave in and out of a shadowy electronic soundscape, at turns both melancholic and transcendent.
“Tripping Ghosts came out of a period of isolation and reflection,” Explains Harks. “I’d only just moved back to a city I’d left many years before when my partner had to leave for a couple of months and something inside kicked in. I couldn’t help but examine the choices I’d made over the years that I felt could have been different. I was tripping on these ghosts that I thought I’d resolved but here they were back to challenge me one more time.”
“I didn’t feel comfortable producing the song myself. I wanted it to be stark, almost tough to listen to so I asked Dan Berridge, a superb composer from Bristol I had collaborated with on a couple of soundtrack scores, to step in. Dan’s production brings so much emotion and empathy to a song, and he really brought that feeling of raw isolation to the song.”
Alongside the original ‘Tripping Ghosts’ comes with a remix from up and coming Anglo-French duo Loframes (James Yuill & Franck Russo), who transform the track into a sleek, if still dark and affecting, dance track. Harks’ vocals cutting through the bleeps and beats to create the perfect soundtrack for intimate moments of reflection that you sometimes lose yourself in on packed dance floors.
Whilst only Harks’ second solo release his CV includes playing in bands such as The Hat (signed to Rob da Bank’s Sunday Best label) and with artists like Laura Marling and collaborations with the likes of Amorphous Androgynous and Andy Barlow from Lamb. Now pursuing a solo career his debut EP, ‘Lomo’, featured on sites around the world including DIY and Hilly Dilly, and the track ‘We’ was used for the closing titles of the recent documentary series ‘Secret Lives of Americans’.
Having made a huge impression back in April with their debut ‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)‘, Anglo-French duo Loframes (James Yuill & Franck Russo) are getting ready to release their next single in just a few weeks. To get us ready they’ve prepared a brand new mixtape for L’Affaire Musicale. 40 minutes of music all re-edited and blended together including some sneak peaks at future Loframes’ releases and an exclusive new version of M83’s ‘Steve McQueen’.

Released last week ’Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’ is the debut single from British/French duo Loframes, otherwise known as James Yuill and Franck Russo. Supported by DJs around the world, already licensed for Toolroom’s ‘Poolside Miami 2015’ compilation and featured on some of the biggest blogs around it’s fair to say as debuts go it’s been pretty well received.
To say thanks for all the support Loframes are giving away a bonus remix of ‘Get Real’ by Berlin based producer Digitalfoxglove. Stripping the track back to just mesmerising synth pads, chugging beats and one short detained vocal sample, Digitalfoxglove delivers a masterclass in ocean deep hypnotic house.
We’ve already featured ‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’, the great debut single from Loframes, a hands across the water partnership between London born artist James Yuill and French producer Franck Russo.
You can now stream the full set of tracks on Soundcloud, so along with the original version you have remixes from Roche Musique’s Kartell and up and coming UK producer Aashton and a 2nd original track, ‘1996’. Both remixes are sure to soundtrack dancefloors and poolsides alike throughout 2015, while ‘1996’ is a track that eschews the romantic pathos of ‘Get Real’ for more straight up dancefloor euphoria.
‘Get Real (Can’t Touch Your Love)’ is the debut single from Loframes, a hands across the water partnership between London born artist James Yuill and French producer Franck Russo. An addictive introduction to the band, ‘Get Real’ is a lovelorn yet satin sheet smooth ménage of classic Pop songwriting and Deep House that does more to rehabilitate the saxophone in 3 and a half minutes than anyone since Tim Capello’s oiled torso took centre stage on the Lost Boys soundtrack.
Turning their debut over to two of their friends, ‘Get Real’ come with remixes from Roche Musique’s Kartell and up and coming UK producer Aashton. Stripping the track back to its essential dancefloor components Kartell works back from there to create a stunningly deep rework, whilst Aashton injects more than a little bump’n’grind and Garage shuffle into the proceedings. Both remixes are sure to soundtrack dancefloors and poolsides alike throughout 2015.
Completing the package Loframes give us ‘1996’, a track that eschews the romantic pathos of ‘Get Real’ for more straight up dancefloor euphoria. A hands in the air House anthem that acknowledges the ‘90s sound without being beholden to it, this is the kind of track that will make ‘em sweat everywhere from South London basements to Miami beach parties.
Already selected for Toolroom’s upcoming ‘Poolside Ibiza 2015’ compilation (mixed by Cyclist) ‘Get Real’ sees Loframes up at the crack of dawn to place their towel on the music industry’s sun lounger, staking their claim to be one of 2015’s most exciting new electronic music acts.
