Not quite sure how Lemaitre got in my Soundcloud news feed – I sure as hell don’t remember following them – but wow, am I glad I found this song. Lemaitre’s song “Fiction” is remixed in this version by Mullaha and I instantly found myself grooving along for the three and half minutes, and repeating once it ended. Since it’s a remix I saught out the original version and shame if I say it but I enjoy the remix more. The original song is melodramatic and the funk is merely mild. Mullaha cranked up the funk and sped up the pace for this choppy dance worthy techno melody.
Lemaitre is Norwegian duo combined of Ketil and Ulrik that utilize live instruments and live vocals when performing, which I find respectable for the deep electronic feeling within their music. Even though I enjoyed this remix better than the original, Lemaitre’s other tracks are definitely worth a listen. Their album Relativity By Night released last month is the third album in their Relative trilogy. Set to perform Fabric in London soon, the band has really gained a following and strategically released the album prior to their big performance. Color me impressed, not everyone can do disco groove properly and still intertwine today’s technology on top of live instruments, wish I could see them in London – I can only imagine what kind of live performance they put on. Listen for yourself, then listen to the original “Fiction” and let me know what you think!
