Review

Altair Nouveau consists of one Brandon Mitchell, a young producer from the west coast currently residing in San Francisco. Altair Nouveau’s music, though designed with the dance floor in mind, still evokes a personal element. It is the combination of these elements that give Altair Nouveau his indistinguishable larger than life, spaced-out future disco sound sure to cause a dance floor frenzy. Raised in the sprawling city of San Jose, California to musical parents. Mitchell grew up with the encouragement of his father, an electronic music teacher at the local community college. Brandon began educating himself by collecting albums from the likes of Giorgio Moroder, Vangelis, Ennio Morricone and John Carpenter. This gave way to newer acts such as In Flagranti, Prins Thomas, Lindstrom and several artists on DFA. The title track ‘Space Fortress’ marks a bold and exciting introduction into the sonic landscape of Mr. Nouveau, combining G Funk, P Funk and a 4/4 disco foundation that adds up to something otherworldly altogether. Released as a joint effort with the uber-hip DFA Records this 12″ features mixes exclusive to this release from ultra-talented Irishman John Daly who turns out a deeper take while Michel Morin’s criminally underrated nom-de-plume Sneak-Thief takes it deeper into spacey disco-funk territory.
