Black History Month (Alan Braxe & Fred Falke Remix)

Today, something wonderful happened. I procured a coveted ticket to the sold-out-in-10-minutes Death From Above 1979 solo show in London. (This is all thanks to the godly Paul from Give Quiche a Chance. GQAC is an excellent electronic music blog. Be sure to check it out.) Attending the show is going to require a 2.5 hour one-way commute, in the middle of my school’s finals week, but it’s going to be worth it. So worth it.

A week from today, something almost equally as wonderful is happening. Alan Braxe (if you don’t know who Alan Braxe is shame on you) and DJ Falcon are playing a show together in Paris at La Machine. I imagine that will sell out too, if it hasn’t already. Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend. I’ll be in Stockholm, and that requires a bit more of a travel effort—not to mention collection of funds, which I sorely lack—than hopping on the Chunnel. In celebration and longing, here’s song that combines the best of both events. (It also includes work from Braxe's ex-collaborator and French Touch master Fred Falke.) If you're one of the lucky few to get tickets to the DFA-UK show, get excited. If you live in Paris, get excited. If you fall into neither to be you.
