Free MP3 Download: Paper Crows "Stand Alight" (Monsieur Adi Remix)

PaperCrows-

Monsieur Adi is at it again! The Italian designer and producer sprinkles his magic disco dust over Paper Crows' debut single "Stand Alight" to create a glossy, moving revamp of the brooding original. I love how the strings break it down towards the end of the track. Massive!

Paper Crows is the London synth pop duo of Emma Panas and Duncan McDougall who met at music college in Killburn. The two immediately bonded immediately bonded in the corner of their vocal techniques class. Instead of paying attention in lessons they wrote songs, then snuck off to Duncan’s house to record them in his makeshift bedroom studio.

The original version of "Stand Alight" is a haunting slice of folktronica that "initially lulls you with acoustic tranquillity before startling with its gut wrenching, opening dubstep wobble and ghostly vocals". Paper Crows are two to watch. They are currently in the studio putting together a portfolio of songs for a forthcoming album release.

Monsieur Adi's Remix of Reni Lane "Place For Us" Inspires Fashion Collection

This is a little mind blowing and totally amazing! Leo, a young designer from New Zealand, was so inspired by Monsieur Adi's magnificent remix of Reni Lane's "Place For Us" that he designed an entire fashion collection based on it. Epic meets elegance. The designer's Monsieur Aid-Reni Lane collection comes with a line of accessories as well, including "Place For Us" handbags (A Reni bag and an Adi bag). How incredible is that? I introduced Monsieur Adi to Reni Lane last year and I'm so glad I did. It's proof once again that music and the reach of social media can create beautiful things.

On Facebook, Adi describes how the artwork was been inspired by Cesare's "Veni, Vidi, Vici." He explains that "We Are The Romans" not only points to his own Italian heritage but also reflects a state of mind. "[It is about] the attitude of to progress forward and nothing will stand in your way (. . . )  It's optimistic and powerful to me. This is why the image is looking off into the distant."
