1994 Cold's Strobe Light Network was a club hit all over Europe. DJs paid ridiculous amounts for a rare copy of the track which is considered a true classic by both Sven Väth as well as Alex Azary. Written and produced was Strobe Light Network by Isar Logi Arnarson, who is also around on the 66º North -10 on Elektrolux. The legendary original track was released by the small Icelandic Label Code records and was licensed by Reload in Belgium. The Remixes of Strobe Light Network by Sven Väth and Ralf Hildenbeutel as well as Flow.Machine are released exclusively on Elektrolux. A definite classic.
Gravitational Waves is a dating story. The pianist Bruno Ruder and the saxophonist Rémi Dumoulin know each other for a long time and have very early maintained more than friendly relations (Bruno Ruder calls Rémi Dumoulin his brother). When the idea of starting a group together germinated, the choice of the drummer was quickly stopped, so great was the desire to rework with the legendary Billy Hart . There is also little suspense about the rest of the cast: Aymeric Avice (Radiation 10, Jean Louis, Circum Grand Orchestra) and Guido Zorn (Rockingchair, Pierre Durand Roots 4tet), two musicians among their favorites. Ruder and Dumoulin share voluntarily very open compositions (sinuous and fragile for the pianist, more direct for the saxophonist). The decision is to leave the maximum space to the American drummer so that it colors the score as it sees fit.
Billy Price and Otis Clay: Two singers separated by a generation come together in a performance that moves the Southern soul tradition a little bit further up the road. Pittsburgh rhythm and blues singer Billy Price and deep Southern soul/gospel icon Otis Clay worked with masterful guitarist/producer Duke Robillard to create their first full-album collaboration, This Time For Real On This Time for Real, the singers have selected an array of soul and R&B songs from the catalogues of artists including Joe Tex, Sam & Dave, the Spinners, Los Lobos, Syl Johnson, and Bobby Womack as well as new versions of two songs originally recorded by Clay. The two friends have performed and worked together occasionally since 1982, but this is by far their most extensive collaboration to date.
