J-808

Nothingness surrounded by infinity

J-808’s remix of “Emotion” opens with—of all things—the pop of a soda can, which is soon followed by the sound of its liquid being poured into a glass. But considering that this thumping rework is a so-called “Late Night Dub,” maybe it’s more likely a can of Red Bull or some other energy drink called upon to help the dancefloor denizens soldier on late into the party. (Maybe it’s just a beer. Who knows?) Thankfully, J-808 shapes fellow French producer Fobator’s original production into appropriately deep and percussive territory, filling the space left between the pounding 808 kicks with touches of buzzing synths and an enticing array of tom and snare rolls. While this particular rework won’t appear on Fobator’s forthcoming Emotion EP, J-808’s “Early Afternoon Remix” arrives along with four other reworks of the record’s two original tunes on March 11 via Montreal’s Pointé label.

Glenn Jackson from XLR8R

J-808 first EP, ‘Altern8' tries to advance a vintage type of sound that waved around his birth in the world's Electronic Dance Music community.


Mainly Chicago House and Detroit Techno, his influences on that release were directed by the underground movements in America by the early nineties but his credo is deeply french and actual and has a very modern point of view of electronic music despite his oldschool influences.

As a new figure in EDM, J-808 was helped by some of the greatest remixers at the time:

    
The Kings Of The Universe (Sweden/Stockholm)
Oldschool house, acid, rave. Their remix built to make you bounce is a pure jackin’ gem perfect for dancefloor fillin.


    
Gotham (France/Paris)Newschool/Oldschool chicago house. The newcomer of the French-to-Chi-House-Style brings you the finest by allying a super sweet pop vibe to some idiomatic chicago piano-house patterns. 

    
Robinhood (France/Paris)
Underground Bass, Uk Funky, House. A strong Bass N Hoover remix like only Robinhood can do it. 


    
Borussia (France/Toulouse-Paris)
Techno, Electronic. A filthy hoover filtered to death with some hypnotics kicks and snares will make you headshake at 3 AM.


    
Cochise (France/Bordeaux)
Deep Techno, Stab House. Combining a repetitive stab style and an impressive use of the hoover to make you tremble till you faint, that remix is definetly the heaviest of the package .
