Yelle launches contest to find opening bands for US tour + Remix by Second Date
For all the musicians out there who have ever seen an opening act at a live show and thought they could do better, now is your chance to prove your skills! Yelle is launching a contest to find an opening act for each of their upcoming shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Miami, and New York. If you think you have what it takes to share the stage with Yelle, send some music and info about yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yelle remixed by Second Date
The dance-pop trio also enlisted London-based producer Second Date (a.k.a. Henry Birkbeck) to remix “Comme Un Enfant,” off their latest album Safari Disco Club (V2/Cooperative Music USA/Downtown Records). Click HERE to stream/download it if you didn’t catch the premiere at Consequence of Sound. Having lived in New York and Paris while growing up, Second Date draws influence from a range of sources on both sides of the Atlantic. His production places emphasis on intricate beats, warm bass, poppy vocals and arpeggiating piano – the latter of which has become Second Date’s trademark.
