Stardust

Stardust was a French house band. Formed in Paris, France, it was a one-time musical collaboration consisting of producers Thomas Bangalter, Alan Braxe and vocalist Benjamin Diamond. The short-lived group released the popular club track titled "Music Sounds Better With You" in 1998. "Music Sounds Better with You", which had its basis in a sample from "Fate" by Chaka Khan, was conceived in the Rex Club in Paris, where Bangalter, Braxe, and Diamond were performing as a live trio. Bangalter and Braxe created the instrumental, which Diamond instinctively sang the title words over.

Cassian

It’s been a year since Cassian’s last EP. And where has the kid with that haircut been? He’s been in the busy, that’s where he’s been. The lead single ‘I Like What You’re Doing’ has already been premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Jaymo & Andy George as part of their “Picks of 2011” show. It takes on the form of a powerhouse party psalm. Charged by an ever-familiar bassline and anthemic vocal performed by a shadowy, old-school Australian music identity. It’s turned into an 80’s fire-funk workout by Lorenz Rhode on his ‘Dangerous Mix’ and a filtered robo-haus jammer in his ‘Rhythm composer mix’.
