If success can be measured in the respect of your peers then Bright Light Bright Light is one of the most successful songwriters around.
New album 'Life Is Easy' has won warm acclaim, with everyone from Clash to Sir Elton John showing their approval. Material from the record has been re-worked on new compilation 'Life Is Hard', with the likes of Todd Terry, Starcadian and Cyclist all contributing remixes.
The album also features fresh collaborations, including contributions from the likes of Ana Metronic from Scissor Sisters. Ahead of this, Bright Light Bright Light has pieced together a new playlist.
The songwriter explains more:
"When I bought Janet's 'Remixed' and Björk's 'Telegram' I loved hearing their bodies of work totally reworked. Growing up in a quiet Welsh valley, electronic music was my portal to a more exciting world. Todd Terry, who unbelievably has remixed one of my songs, has produced some of my favourite tracks, and alongside the other producers and artists on this mixtape, is responsible for inspiring me to make dance music. I'm really excited to release this remix album and this mixtape is a footnote of what made me look to the dance floor with some of the tracks that hit me the hardest and still give me the same feeling each time I hear them."
