When you visit All We Are’s soundcloud they describe themselves as “Bee Gee’s on diazepam” which is pretty spot on. CFCF massages this out in his natural spacious style, the 2nd half is where the magic happens and vox really opens up and layers over the CFCF treatment nicely.
‘Keep Me Alive’, the supple, dreamily captivating single from Liverpool’s All We Are has been remixed by a crew of talented peers – UK producer Lxury (Greco-Roman), Los Angeles-based dream rock band Warpaint, and Montreal electronic composer CFCF. This 4-track bundle, featuring the original version plus the 3 remixes, is available today digitally on Double Six / Domino.

Looking forward to renting this on Vimeo, even though its a tad bit long for a tour feature, i’m excited to see such a young label take on a doc this early in their creation.
In June 2012, four core acts from the house music label 100% Silk embarked on a lengthy group tour through Europe, UK and beyond. SILK is a chronicle of that experience with highly visual dance sequences featuring the L.A. Contemporary Dance Company.
Our good friend Praveen is back at with his smooth Braille alias after a short hiatus going full Sepalcure. The EP is a solid listen all the way through, taking apart his organic sound structures and delivering selections for the dancefloor and even some for those lonely nights.
On February 10, Praveen Sharma aka Braille (one half of Sepalcure) will arrive on Friends of Friends with the Everyone’s Crazy EP. Utilizing an organic sound palette and a vast repertoire of on the cusp production techniques, Braille’s first release on FoF positions the Brooklyn-resident at the fore of sultry, beat-based music that doesn’t shy away from letting the listener into the interior world of Sharma himself. Everyone’s Crazy will function as the precedent to Braille’s forthcoming full-length debut, Mute Swan, coming Spring 2015!
