UNIVERSAL NATION (SDBAN Records)
That André Brasseur is ready to enchant a whole new generation is clear. He’s been successfully touring with his band the past year with an absolute high point at this year’s Pukkelpop, where he turned the Dance Hall into one enormous matinée-party.
He’s also being honoured at this year’s Red Bull Elektropedia Awards where he’s the recipient of the first Vinyl Frontier Lifetime Achievement Award.
Now he’s putting his signature twist on another kind of classic. Studio Brussel asked the man to bring a live rendition of the number one of their dance classics hitlist ‘The Greatest Switch’: Push – Universal Nation. The result is so stunning that it’s since has been re-recorded and mixed for the world to enjoy!
Lost gems from the 70's (sdban records)
You may never have heard of him, but unless you’re a complete stranger to the 20th century, you will almost certainly have heard at least some of his music. André Brasseur composed countless tunes that received plenty of airplay and were used as radio and TV intro tunes all over Europe in the late Sixties and in the Seventies. His biggest hit, ‘Early Bird Satellite’ was an international million seller. The second disc of this compilation features some of Brasseur’s most successful evergreens and hit singles.
The first part of the compilation focuses on a lesser known aspect of Brasseur’s musical output. Because in between his quest for the perfect intro tune, playing innumerable live shows and running several successful restaurants and discothèques, Brasseur recorded a great deal of experimental, funky jams in the Seventies. We made it our mission to compile the most exciting and timeless of these lost cuts and ended up with 13 enchanting cult classics and hidden gems, ready to devour.
