The BMF of the “Alan Braxe and Friends” featured in the classic french house album The Upper Cuts, Fred Falke’s most known filter art is with his other half. In addition to original work, the duo are deft remixers, accentuating a song’s strengths and turning them into epic dancefloor masterpieces (see: either of their takes on Kelis’ “Bossy”). But Falke’s original work shouldn’t be cast aside. 2008’s Music for My Friends is an intimate seaside bonfire soundtrack—the rhythm guitarist on “8:08pm at the Beach” isn’t Nile Rogers, but you still get that chic feeling.
