Depeche Mode - Soothe My Soul (Steve Angello & Jacques Lu Cont Remix)
After his subpar free release a few weeks ago with Wayne & Woods for the Mio Energy Facebook campaign (try the stuff, it gets you WIRED), Steve Angello gives his first real glimspe at life behind the production curtain post Swedish House Mafia. Stuart Price dons his Jacques Lu Cont moniker for this remix as the two dance music icons link up to put their spin on the first single from Depeche Mode’s 13th studio album.

The remix keeps much of the sound and style of the original, while allowing for experimentation and nuanced additions by Jacques Lu Cont and Steve Angello, slowly building a synth laden climax over the course of the entire song. This track leans more towards Jacques Lu Cont’s current productions and you probably won’t be hearing this in a Steve Angello set, but it is nice to see him show off the variety he possesses in production. Maybe when he puts his Mescal Kid hat on, he would bring out this one.

House | Jacques Lu Cont

Posted by on February 19, 2012

The return of Stuart Price, the enigmatic British Producer/ Dj / Remixer has been noticed by quite a few in the EDM community. He is a man who has been producing under his own name as well as monikers such as Paper Faces, Les Rythmes Digitales and Jacques Lu Cont since the early 1990s. It was no accident that he opened for Swedish House Mafia at Madison Square Garden. He had a great set and is ready to make waves this year. His soundcloud currently only has three songs, though his discography is much more rigorous. “Church” has been heavily supported by Pete Tong among others and his remix of Miike Snow’s “Paddling Out” is expected to one of the highlights of the remix package. Jacques Lu Cont is already booked for Coachella, is playing with Axwell during Miami Music Week and plenty of other shows coming into what should be a busy festival season for the resurgent Jacques Lu Cont. He has a prototypical french house sound with upbeat french disco and some heavier electro coming from some obvious Daft Punk influences.
