With a mere week to go until London kicks off the 2012 Summer Olympics, one of the five official theme songs for the event, ‘Good Morning To The Night‘, gets a stellar remix treatment from one of France’s finest Electronica producers. Off that back of his recent release on Kitsuné alongside The Knocks in ‘Geronimo‘, Fred Falke emerges with his sights on Pnau’s acclaimed modern take on a ‘72 Elton John classic. In a playful clash of euphoric leads and Sir Elton John’s ever timeless vocal of ‘Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters’, Falke continues to have no trouble of staying afloat amid his vintage take on electronic music, revamping one of this year’s official Olympics theme songs in the process.

Masters of the new classic turned fashionable Electronic outlet Kitsuné have never been a predictable asset to Europe’s forward thinking club assets. But in a bid to extend their already extensive back catalogue of quality music from across the spectrum, the full-bloomed summer season sees the French imprint bring aboard homeland Electro maestro Fred Falke and New York duo The Knocks to don their studio wizardry to the original of Kitsunes quite possibly most hotly tipped release of the year.

With a sound scope ranging from the playful stylings of the original right through to Aylen’s considerably heavier interpretation, the ‘Geronimo EP’ ditches the straight up House grooves to collect one of the most fluid and forward-thinking EP’s to have touched Electronic music this year. While Louis La Roche ups the ante of the more comfortable original with familiar heavyset edge and strong melodic ornamentation, Finnish prodigy Lenno wraps it up with another stellar example of his signature sound of perky middle-ground fuzz. Despite the strong French hallmarks that pervade this modern package, the ‘Geronimo EP’ is a strong indicator that amid the 21st century swell in club culture, the positive universal footsteps within the industry have not been limited to European Progressive House.

Under his potent Louis La Roche moniker, the Kitsuné approved club monger takes on the sturdy studio work of New York’s The Knocks and Parisian favourite Fred Falke.

Despite the strong French hallmarks that pervade this modern gem, Louis La Roche is a strong indicator that amid the 21st century swell in club culture, the positive universal footsteps with the industry have not been limited to European Progressive House.
