The A-Mixtape by Flashworx

Quand on n'a plus le temps d'écrire de beaux articles (l'adjectif étant ici totalement subjectif), on met en route ses méninges, on fait vrombir le moteur, et on pond des idées géniales (ce dernier attribut étant du même acabit que le précédent).

Début d'une série de mixtapes qui aura 26 numéros si la Terre continue de tourner et que les petits oiseaux n'arrêtent pas de faire cuicui.
Je vous explique rapidement le principe de fonctionnement : Je choisis une dizaine de morceaux que j'aime dans ma bibliothèque sonore, je les soumet à un artiste qui doit les mixer entre eux. Jusque là, ça pourrait paraître assez peu original. Mais là où Random Trax pose sa patte, c'est que les noms des morceaux commencent tous par la même lettre et les genres musicaux sont totalement random! Tout de suite moins facile... Ce qui peut s'avérer être un vrai challenge pour ces messieurs derrière les platines devrait se transformer en vrai régal pour vos oreilles.

Pour la première, c'est Anthony Hammer qui s'y colle. Un nom qui ne vous dit peut-être rien, mais ce n'est autre que la moitié de Flashworx, ce duo Genevois d'italo-disco récemment créé dont je vous parle assez souvent. Avant de sortir un premier EP en mai sur Space Walker Records, Hammer nous en met plein les mirettes en cette mi-janvier. Hé oui! Vous voilà en présence d'une exclusivité Random Trax, pondue pas plus tard qu'hier après-midi.
Faites vous plaisir, n'hésitez pas à l'écouter en boucle, à la télécharger pour la copier sur un cd et rythmer vos voyages, à la partager avec vos amis... C'est fait pour ça!

Au niveau du tracklisting, on notera une dédicace (Anthonio), un inédit (Ain't That Fresh), une pépite australienne (A) et du Valérie tout beau tout neuf et tout remixé (A Real Hero).

4. Futurecop! - Ain't That Fresh
5. Klaxons - As Above So Below (Justice Remix)
6. Dimes - A

9. DatA - Aerius Light
10. College feat. Electric Youth - A Real Hero (Paul Remix)

When there's no more time to write up some pretty articles (the adjective is totally subjective), we start thinking hard, we turn on our cerebral motor and create brillant ideas (this last ad is as sub as the precedent).

Here's the beginning of something like 26 mixtapes if the Earth keep on turning round and birds don't stop singing 'kweekwee'.
Let me explain you how everything's going : I choose ten tracks or more (or less) I like among my big sound library, I submit them to an artist which job is to mix it up. It could look like something not original at all. But let's welcome the Random Trax touch, song names are all starting with the same letter and musical styles are totally random! Already not so easy... What could be a real & hard challenge for our dear artists may become a pure delight for our ears.

The first one is mixed by Anthony Hammer. A man you probably don't know yet, but he's anyone else than one part of Flashworx, this Geneva-based italo-disco duo recently created, I think you have already heard of them here. Before a first EP on May 2010 on Space Walker Records, Hammer gives our ears an epic mix. Yes! Here for you, Random Trax readers, an exclusive mixtape made yesterday afternoon.
Have fun listening to it over and over, downloading it and burning it on a CD to dance in your car, sharing it with your friend... it's free!

Let's have a look at the tracklisting, where we can find a dedicated song (Anthonio), an exclusive one (Ain't That Fresh), an Australian jewel (A) and some new remixed Valérie stuff (A Real Hero).


Bonux :

Brillant remix of a new College track by the mysterious Paul, sweetly offered by Valérie !
