Playing tracks by
H.& G. Rapid Learning Systems: FRENCH, Add N To X, Marie Laforêt (avec Gérard Klein), Serge Gainsbourg, Les Bel Air 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...
