About the show
Playing tracks by
Galatasaray Lisesi, Jacques Dutronc, Grace Jones, Sylvie Vartan, H.& G. Rapid Learning Systems: FRENCH and more.
Another mix of vintage French pop, eclectic electronics, psychedelic sweetness and synthetic sounds from the L'Amour Electronique DJs.
Mix 3 begins with a little lesson in parler en Français, a spooky analogue symphony from Add N to (X) and then a steamy French version of Nancy & Lee's 'Summer Wine'. Onwards with some classic Gainsbourg, a rare Québécois garage cut, Nicoletta's eerie take on 'I Put a Spell on You', and some obscure Turkish Francophone garage. A little 70s segue leads us into more modern electronic territory with the brutalist synth-pop of Electronicat and Sebastien Tellier's epic Sexual Sportswear. Ending with a bittersweet 8-bit ballad from Yazoo and some Dutronc-ian absurdist psychedelia.
Part 2 follows soon...
