Red Magic (2014 Edition)
Montreal electro duo Beat Market received accolades and an ADISQ nomination for their stellar debut full-length Red Magic. Apparently that wasn’t enough – the pair has decided to offer a more pumped-up, reworked edition of the album, more in line with how they play the tracks live. The facelift includes fresh drumbeats, a polished mix from producer French Fox, and a beefy mastering job from UK mastering engineer Mike Marsh (Depeche Mode, Bjork, Massive Attack). This reissue definitely merits the revisit.
Be sure to check out the space-age new video for “Aviator 2000” and hear the magic live at Montreal’s Osheaga festival on August 2.
