self fulfilling prophecy remixes recasts in vinyl version the techno esprit of la fraicheur s original album with four reworks, which condition the dancers to unstoppable footwork as much as they open the listeners ‘minds up. four remixers each fighting against wordly injustice in their own way
for over a decade now - first in paris, then montreal, and now in berlin - la fraicheur has been brewing her own deep blend of electronic beats. making a name for herself with her signature sound of powerful and emotionally charged techno sets. the queer feminist activist is a marathon dj who can go on for countless hours, running the gamut from classics, to new songs released only two hours before.
“self fulfilling prophecy”, la fraicheur’s debut lp recorded between underground resistance studios in detroit and her home studio in berlin, will be released early this summer on infiné, in the middle of her international tour through europe and south america.
bottom forty s fifth release and second vinyl press showcases two french producers living and banging the drums in berlin, a long time bottom forty favorite, la fraicheur, teamed up with veteran producer and leonizer record label ownerleonard de leonard. la fraicheur, a producer of emotional and story-telling minimal techno, is seen here paired with leonard de leonard to turn up the heat on our first club-banger release track, -afraid of the groove-. la fraicheur and leonard de leonard beat the hell out of their analog elektron to lay out a relentless whipping melody that demands a twirling dance floor while a classic minimal bass line, rhythm and -she s uh-fraid of the groove- sample keep this track dark, dirty and underground. in a beautiful contrast to the heart-pounding a-side, flip to the b-side for -une place au soleil-. literally translated as -a place in the sun-, the saying is more about conveying the emotion of your hard work is putting you in a good place in life . -une place au soleil- is a gorgeous deep house track filled with teasingly melodic stabs and subtle hardware sounds that come and go, crashing on the record like powerful but soothing waves on the hot beach sands. while -afraid of the groove- may twist a peak-hour dance floor into a frenzy, -une place au soleil- will entrance them in the after hours, reminding dancers why electronic music is so beautiful and why dance floors can carry so much emotional release.
la fraicheur finally delivers with a first 9-track album, self-fulfilling prophecy, her first release on the infiné label. this remarkably dense, dancefloor-oriented album oscillates between techno, ambient and electronic music, a mesmeric yet pounding effort that gets the body and the mind moving
die schweizer verstehen nicht nur was von uhren und kräuterbonbons sondern auch was von guter musik. digitaline, aka gregorythme and laps zeigten schon auf cadenza 7 was sie können, hier setzen sie noch einen drauf. zum beispiel anja schneider, troy pierce, matthias tanzmann, mike shannon oder karotte sehen das genauso..
