Think THOSE were cool? Lifelike Pt. I

Try some LIFELIKE, noobs!

At the same time that Roule and Crydamoure were leading the French House movement, a strange artist by the name of Lifelike timidly stepped forward with a bold redefinition of house music. It was like nothing ever heard before. It was house, but it wasn't acid house, it certainly wasn't disco or funk... it... sampled synthpop? Wtf, right? People may not have known what to think of the weirdo, until Thomas bangalter and DJ falcon used the second B side of his first EP as the opening track of their Together tour. Lifelike took off, and today has popular remixes like La Roux under his belt.

After his bold statement, Lifelike came back with another release in 2003, My Precious Diamond, which had a much more traditional French House sound, yet still that awkward primarily-synth sampling style.

2005 was a big year for Lifelike. Running Out EP, Soul Of My Love, Discopolis, not to mention Adventure. Back and better than ever, with more synthpop samples, and a major French House anthem to rock the ages.

And he's still at it.

Tune in for more later.

EDIT: Fixed "Black Chess" Mp3. Should be all good now.

Lifelike is THE sh*t. You should post the La Roux remix. It's a great improvement.

I've posted Discopolis before.

Number Two said...

I love all this stuff!!
The first posted track skips though.

But thank you!

I know, Alex, I just used your mp3. I felt the post would be sad without it.

Working on fixing the second track, btw. I'm re-downloading it. If that doesn't work, I'l try fixing it in Acid by cutting it up a little.

Lifelike's remix of "Epic Last Song" bY Does It Offend You Yeah? is absolutely brilliant, you gotta post that!
