Falke Music

Fred Falke's guaranteed to bring a little uplift to any song, often creating a pleasing tension with the melancholy lyrics and vocals. This is a selection of his earlier remixes, initially with fellow French DJ Alan Braxe. 10 remixes, 10 years, 1 per year. As Kelis so succinctly puts in Bossy, "uh uh, watch the beat go".

  1. I just love the Alan Braxe/Fred Falke collaborations. Intro/Running is one of the heights of French House not involving Thomas Bangalter!

  2. Oh, one last thing on the track Intro. One of the greatest feats of mixing I have ever experienced in a club was Erick Morillo mixing Intro and Black Betty by Ram Jam in and out of each other for 10 minutes at one of his Subliminal Nights in NYC decades ago. He had the crowd in the palm of his hand like a magician.

    1. I never got to see Erick Morillo DJ live but I have listened to and watched his sets on radio, TV & YouTube. He was a true master. I dug out Intro for a listen and I can only imagine how brilliant the back and forth with Black Betty must have been. From Morillo's masterful mixing to Khayem's slipshod segueways is a bit of a drop, but thanks for your comments as always, Echorich!
