HENRI PIERRE NOEL: The Reflex Revisions (2016)

Reflex Henri Pierre Noel RevisionsThe Reflex is many things – just ask Simon Le Bon – a lonely child waiting by the park, in charge of finding treasure in the dark and, if you’ve been even vaguely awake and at a funk and soul club in the last few years, a remixer with golden ear.

Despite what Duran Duran say, by my reckoning that’s another little thing the Reflex has done that doesn’t leave you answered with a question mark…
