“My New Remixes” – Alex Gopher (Go4Music) [ALBUM] September 23, 2009Posted by rocketsciencemedia in Press Releases.
Alex Gopher entered the French music scene in a pop band known as Orange, a band that featured future stars Etienne de Crécy and both members of the band Air. After the band’s breakup, Alex collaborated with Etienne de Crécy and Air on future projects but made a name for himself with “You, My Baby, And I”, an album that combined elements of funk, house, and electronica.
In 2001, he was asked by designer Yves St. Laurent for three tracks to use for their Yves’ catwalk show. Alex ended up composing ten tracks, asking French underground artist, Demon, to give the music a more “clubbier” feeling. The end result was a critically acclaimed album titled “Wuz,” which used elements found in “You, My Baby, and I” but had its own distinct sound. He released his 3rd album “Alex Gopher” in 2007, as well as fifteen 12” records on Solid, Kitsuné and Go 4 Music.
His new album – “My New Remixes” – is a collection of the most recent remixes produced by this talented French musician, producer, and DJ. Since 1996, he has collaborated with artists from various backgrounds such as Jamiroquai, Vanessa Paradis, Mr Oizo, Erik Truffaz, Roy Davis Jr, Sly & Robbie, Zazie, Bob Sinclair, and Bootsy Collins, to name a few. The album before you features his most recent remixes, as well as previously unreleased material produced for Kraftwerk, IAM, Tocadisco, AutoKratz, Fischerspooner, Shinichi Osawa, WhoMadeWho, Benny Benassi, Ladyhawke, Dre Skull, Kid Sister and Dada Life. The album also includes “Ash Sync”, a previously unreleased track composed in collaboration by Air, Etienne de Crécy and Alex Gopher.
Coherent and powerful, the album “My New Remixes” is an invitation to rediscover today’s key artists in electro, hip-hop, and rock music which Alex has reworked with intensity and subtlety.
