The Konstantin Sibold Remix is destined to be one of the biggest club hits of this year! The originals and the Simon Garcia remix are also top notch. Watch out for Konstantin Sibold's remix of “As Goes The Sun” which is due later this year. DJ Yellow’s real name Alain Ho has been around for ages. When he met Chris (Bob Sinclar) in the early 90's during a night out, things took a turn. They started their label Yellow Productions in 1993, to critical acclaim. An underground label at first, it was perhaps Yellow's search for personality and his ear for quality that opened the door to a colourful palette of signings, that included artists as diverse as Dimitri From Paris, Kid Loco, Bang Bang, Joe Claussel, Salome de Bahia and of course Bob Sinclar himself, all of which have helped to shape the French sound, as it is today. After a decade of fruitful cooperation and dedication to helping other people's careers, Yellow finally decided to begin Poussez Music in 2003, as an outlet for his own sounds, and that of his close friends, including King Britt, Kenny Larkin and Josh Wink, amongst others. The label has shone more than ever in 2007. Through three projects, Alienation (instrumental), Intermission (vocals) and Paule (non-dance), Yellow has created a wide canvas to push his diverse sounds and inspirations into the world. After six hypnotizing Alienation releases through Poussez, Yellow completes the series in 2007 with a grand finale through invitations on Plastic City, Josh Wink's respected Ovum Records, the prestigious Morrison Recordings, Slipe’n Side Records, Ibadan Records and Deep Focus, featuring a special rework from no other than Deep Dish's Dubfire. Montreal's Flowers And Sea Creatures have been building a formidable reputation since their debut EP 'Test Pressing' in September 2010. Together with the follow-up 'A.M' in Feb 2011 and their full release album in 2011, they have been turning some serious heads in both the electronic underground and the alt.rock overground. They deliver a deeply atmospheric and cinematic sound - Graham Baxter's vocals and crystalline acoustic guitars riding over Kosta Megalos' atmospheric synth work. Baxter was born in Belfast and Megalos was born in Athens and both immigrated to Montreal with their respective families in their youth. The two met in the 1990s and they started writing together and playing the local bar scene while always working away at writing their blend of acoustic and electronic original music. Record deals nearly came and mostly went and it was in the early 2000s that the duo began in earnest writing the exploratory music that would become Flowers And Sea Creatures staple. Finally the caught the ear of Buzzin' Fly label boss, Ben Watts. To date the duo have collaborated with Ewan Pearson, Fred Everything, The Revenge and Ytre Rymden Dansskola. Inspirations include Chet Baker, Bowie, Bjørk, Everything But The Girl, Giorgio Moroder, The Art of Noise, Kraftwerk, The Cure.
