Newest Love: Gemini Club

“They have a synth-pop sound that just makes you want to dance, whether you’re at a dance party, in you car, or in your office cubicle and bursts with energy.” – CBS Chicago

“If you like to, you know…dance, we think it’s a pretty safe bet, since this three-piece electro-indie dance band is on a mission to make you move.” – Refinery 29

Gemini Club, consisting of Dan Brunelle, Tom Gavin and Gordon Bramli, is a three-piece indie-electronic dance band hailing from Chicago, Illinois. Their unique live shows have been tearing up the scene for the last two years, and commencing dizzying dance parties in every city they go! Far from the conventional live performance, Gemini Club have a specially designed rig that allows for on-the-fly remixing of their own songs meaning each Gemini Club show is different from the last. As a result, Gemini Club has been asked to the support the likes of Chromeo, A-Trak, Two Door Cinema Club, Who-Made-Who, DJ Falcon and Chateau Marmont.

Their first single, “Ghost” came out hot in the blogosphere, resulting in remixes from Hey Champ, Barretso, Golden Bug and Only Children. The track has since been picked up for airplay from BBC Radio 1’s tastemaker show “In New DJs We Trust.”

From the mid-west to the Orient, Gemini Club’s own remix chops are in demand online and across the globe. Their remix for Australian band The Vanish went straight into the top ten of Hype Machine’s charts. The band’s spin on Hey Champ’s “Cold Dust Girl” entered the same top ten charts on five different occasions within a month – and their remix for Shinichi Osawa has been a mainstay on the iTunes dance charts in Japan. Most recently, the gents of GC’s remix of Chilly Gonzales song “You Can Dance” premiered on the RCRD LBL blog as the most downloaded track of the week.

New Video: Fedde Le Grand – “So Much Love”

Fedde said: “Preparing my Summer Takeover tour sets, I always like to do some rework of existing tracks. One of the tracks that came by was “So Much Love To Give” by Together (aka Thomas Bangalter & DJ Falcon), which uses a sample from “Love Is Such A Wonderful Thing” by the 70’s disco act The Real Thing. That original track was embedded on one of the first funk albums I bought, and I’ve listened to it since I was about 13, which is why the “Together” version has always been such an inspiration to me. The first live reactions were great, and I’m happy to see a lot of people now look for my version of this all time classic!
The track, released through long-time label collaborators Toolroom, is already proving to be one of the Dutchman’s biggest ever hits, and follows in the wake of Missing, Autosave and Metrum as his fourth #1 on Beatport this year alone.
2011 has now firmly cemented itself as the year of le Grand. His productions have come thick and fast since he took to his new studio in January. With his summer Takeover Tour, a residency at the world’s number 1 club Space, debut gigs at Coachella and EXIT, North and South American tours and his constant criss-crossing of the European circuit, fans and critics have been blown away by Fedde’s exhilarating energy in the mix as much as by his unbeatable prowess in the studio.
