Alan Braxe has announced that 2005 album The Upper Cuts, a key long player associated with the so-called ‘French Touch‘ scene, is set to be re-released on 31 March, on Smugglers Way.

The album, which features tracks such as Stardust’s Music Sounds Better With You, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke’s Intro and The Paradise’s In Love With You, has been remastered and is being released on digital platforms for the first time, as well as on vinyl and CD. You can pre-order here.

Six bonus tracks have been added, including new track True Love; You’ll Stay In My Heart, an instrumental with Fred Falke; and Braxe’s remix of Britney Spears’ Anticipating.

According to the press release, upon its release in 2005, the album helped to ‘create a new template for the French house sound in the early 2000s’ and ‘provided a bridge between the first wave of French house and the Ed Banger / Justice / Kitsuné axis that followed’.

Check out a video for the remastered version of Intro below.

Braxe is set to perform alongside DJ Falcon at Ed Banger Records’ 20th anniversary celebrations at London’s Printworks on Friday 3 March.
