Woke up this morning, opened the window, sky was bright blue and the sun shining. Started browsing through unread emails and came across one from REFLEX that had attached this mix and some promos. I knew straight away I had the ingredientes to have a good day!
Born and bred under the scorching sun of Sourthern France, André Dalcan and Ludmila Cassar are a pairing both inside and outside the studio. Together they produce as REFLEX, making funky electro-disco with shades of balearic and even indie.
Set over cascades of vintage synths, head-spinning arpeggios, fat analog basslines and 808 claps, the Eighties are never far away but this is not revival as the duo are developing music focused on the future.
With choruses that evoke memories of carefree past, their tracks fill your soul and mind with feelgood vibes and don't let go. Try as you might, there's just no way to resist falling in love with REFLEX.
