Altair Nouveau consists of Brandon Mitchell, a young
producer from the West Coast currently residing in San
Francisco. Altair NouveauÕs music, though designed with
the dance floor in mind, evokes a uniquely personal element.
It is the combination of these two features that gives
Altair Nouveau its indistinguishable, larger-than-life,
spaced-out future disco sound sure to cause a dance floor
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. He began to educate 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 DFA artists.
The title track of his debut 12-inch, 'Space Fortress,'
charges out of the gate on the back of a throbbing bass line
with synthesizers blazing. Quickly building, it flies high
then lands in a valley of rhythmic pulses before entering
the whirlwind again and ascending back into the heavens.
'Showdown' is exactly that, with its slow, dramatic electronic
transcendence and lush, minimal vocal harmonies.
The swirling jazz funk of 'Sorcerer,' full of bright and
shimmering synthesizer melodies, conjures up a siren-like
magic that expands beyond the far reaches of space.
