Louis La Roche: The Peach EP

A couple of months ago, the Blog world was atwitter as a filtery track tagged as "TB" was deposited in the comment sections of several blogs, leading some to speculate that Thomas Bangalter had gone rogue and started leaking tracks into the blogosphere. A Brit named Louis La Roche claimed that it was his, setting off more debate. I wrote about it in the weeks that followed, and hadn't heard much more about it (besides positive response when i played it for others).

However, last week Louis La Roche (real name: Brett Ewels, age 17?!?) sent this blogger (and i'd assume several others) a link to his new album, The Peach EP, and i'm very happy to share it here with you. You've heard these sounds before, but it is certainly high quality stuff (and i havent been able to get Do You Remember out of my head for days). The fact that he's 17 gives me great hope for the future of this sound, much in the same way that The Martinez Bros. are breathing new life into deep house.

For more info on Louis La Roche, visit this link on Boule A Facettes.

News

· 1st, NYers and Americans All, my friend MicProbes has excitedly informed me that he's booked Romain Seó (Raw Man, and of Buffalo Bunch and We In Music) to play his Ruff Club party on May 2nd. Obviously this is a DO NOT MISS if you're in the area and like this blog at all.

· 2nd, I got an email from Ali Ralouf (AKA Dirti Ali of The Eternals, Vinyl Fever, and about half the music I write about here), who commented on my rhetorical inquiry about the new tracks on The Eternals' Myspace. As it turns out, these will be officially released in the near future, though he didn't mention a timetable, or which label they'd be released on. Still, great news that the Eternals are back!

· NYers can look forward to a solid dose of Classic House over the next week. First, The Martinez Bros. are back home for two shows, Thursday 4/24 @ Cielo and Sunday 5/4 at Webster Hall with Danny Krivit and his long-running 718 Sessions party. Not to be outdone, the Godfather of House, Frankie Knuckles makes his return to the big apple with a rare appearance at Cielo this Sunday. I was at his last Cielo appearance, and I promise you, the old guy hasn't lost a beat.

Britney Spears · Anticipating (Alan Braxe Remixes)

Tee Hee Hee, thats great.

Apparently this was from 2003? Where was I? I'm pretty sure if I ever get married, i want the B-Side to be played on a loop for much of the reception. Sorry for the Low Quality, but you'll get the idea (and if you have it in a better rip, send her my way and I'll replace these). [Mercí a Les Cocos]

Chilly · "For Your Love"

I'm still here, fear not.

I went and saw Maurice Fulton last friday at APT, and from what I recall, it was fantastic. One track I remembered to jot down in my Blackberry before the Sapporo caught up with me was this 1978 cover of The Yardbirds' "For Your Love". I hope you enjoy it.
